    Demon Skin cherry-picks mechanics from your favourite games and presents them in a deliciously gory fruit salad.

    Demon Skin feels more like a vertical slice of a great game than a product of its own. It’s short, it’s not polished enough, but the core gameplay is solid. Hopefully, the studio will get a bigger budget next time – there’s a lot of potential here. [Issue#253, p.51]

    Demon Skin is a mix of many genres combined together to achieve the goal of standing out from the crowd.

    A half-baked game with an interesting concept.

    After about six hours with Demon Skin, I think I’m done. Overall it’s just too simplistic, and it felt like I was repeating content far too soon. Sure, there are are new enemies and new areas, but ultimately it feels like a samey sort of ride that has players constantly jumping over spikes, battling similar monsters and leveling up basic stats. There’s just not enough new content, story or ideas here that make me want to continue the push to the end.

    This just annoys the hell out of me because with the original Dark Souls approaching its 10th birthday, there are a lot of gamers out there who only know the game by association. I honestly think it gives people the wrong impression of what the genre can be like, and it cheapens the original masterpiece. Just like how first-person-shooters were called doom-clones before it, we really need a new name for this genre.

    Demon Skin definitely needed a lot more work. It’s a buggy mess and a number of features mentioned in the help section or announcement trailers are just straight up missing. At its core, it has a plot they seem to be trying to do something original with, and a combat system that makes blocking more engaging. They could have done so much more, but at the end of the day I cannot recommend getting this.

    There is a rather unusual combat mechanic, which is not clear at first, but then you get used to it and it is played much better.

    I also want to highlight the atmosphere of the game, it is good, the music complements, the backgrounds are excellent, especially where the gnomes are.

    Enemies are difficult, sometimes very difficult.

    Demon Skin has its drawbacks. The platformer in this game can be very awkward.
    However, the combat system is amazing. And very attractive.

    This is a bit baggy game which unfortunately becomes quite boring after an hour of playing.
    Locations look great, but animations are pure.
