    This game is not for everyone, but if there's even a little part of you that wants to hurl daggers at skeletal spiders under extreme duress, I recommend you go to hell. It's fun here.

    The hardcore difficulty and lack of menus will be enough to turn some players off, but for those that stick it out, you’re in for a Hell of a good time.

    Smooth performance, excellent sound and masterful gameplay mechanics. The only thing that could push this title to a perfect 10/10 would be additional content, such as more enemy types or technique pickups. If you love throwing knives at things and dying as much as I do, you belong with us down here in the abyssal depths of Devil Daggers.

    Intense, brutal, scary and intransigent, Devil Daggers will be madly loved and quietly hated. Because what it offers is clearly addressed to a kind of player who can feel Heaven in a Hellish FPS. Probably one of the most punitive games of all time.

    FPS full of action, in which you are constantly going through the same things. Instead of boredom, you will find fun in your small victories.

    The game that is borderline uncomfortable to play or even look at, Devil Daggers is a hellish nightmare in which its inhabitants and sounds will keep haunting you, but you’ll keep returning to it, trying to stay there for just a moment longer.

    It’s not that deep, but it’s bizarrely engaging and fun.

    The graphics are retro like i already said ,and I actually don't like retro graphics ,but in this game i didn't mind.The game was overall fun and is very cheap ,but is difficult ,short in terms of content but because you die all the time its worth its price

    The mechanics
    The real value of this game is the overwhelming feeling of being constantly overpowered by hellish creatures in a dark world.
    The mechanics are fine too, simple and solid as they should be, but again, this game so good because of fear: fear not to keep up, fear of falling to oblivion, fear of the dark, fear because of the rattling sounds, the monstrous screams, fear of what's coming next...
    It's amazing how did they manage to create such sensations with just a few pixel.

    On a technical perspective the game is a solid arcade FPS where you're confined to an arena with no escape (you can fall out of its boundaries) and have to face hordes of enemies killing them by hitting their core with throwing daggers (with gun-like throwing speed)

    It's both a good game and a good value game taking its tag price in consideration.
    Totally recommended to almost everyone.

    Not all indie games are good, and this is a good example.
    If this game had been released in the Doom/Heretic years, wouldnt have drawn a single drop of attention.
    In short, retro graphics and high difficulty dont make a good game by themselves.
