    A unique rhythm based shoot-em-up game with a killer heavy metal soundtrack, detailed pixel characters and environments with tons of personality.

    Very fun and entertaining, in addition to being original.

    Double Kick Heroes is a great little game for fans of bashing their buttons and keys along with fast-paced heavy metal, and the zombie aesthetic feels well handled. I like how you’re able to adjust the game a bit to make for a more enjoyable experience that you can handle, and I’d hope to see more guest bands joining to fold in Hellgate. It’s a game that does sometimes feel unforgiving and you should probably get your hand muscles worked up in preparation.

    Double Kick Heroes is an original experience with strong foundations and lot of love. Unfortunately, all that love and dedication cannot mask the problem of its main mechanics and, although this is far from ruining the game, it is a discomfort that takes a long time for the player to get used to.

    Double Kick Heroes is a friend to all manner of gamer, headbanger or not. It’s wonderful tracks, post-apocalyptic backdrop, and various features boost the fun factor well beyond your typical rhythm experience. While I don’t consider the IP to be anything groundbreaking, Headbang Club clearly has an audience in mind. I’d say they’ve managed to cater to that audience and then some. [Early Access Review]

    The game is really fun and is a gift for fans of rhythm games. If you like metal, you're in luck. In addition, the artistic section is awesome, with a game full of humor and excesses, and the editor of levels makes his life endless.
