Sep 7, 2015While it may not have the most captivating of storylines, the game itself is fun and addictive. It’s a great way to kill some time – no pun intended – and may leave you muttering things under your breath that make others question your sanity. Plus, you can count on new content being added in the future, which will increase the game’s replayability and won’t cost you a cent.
Sep 1, 2015Party Hard is a game that’s definitely greater than the sum of its parts.
Oct 30, 2015Its gameplay was addictive yet fun, and there are countless ways to beat a level. Despite being a relatively short game, you can beat each level with different characters to test your youth killing skills.
Sep 30, 2015Party Hard is a really entertaining and old school title, with both action and stealth approaches, fine soundtrack and pretty 8-bit pixel art visuals.
Aug 25, 2015Party Hard blends a novel concept with a great mix of gameplay mechanics. Throw in the random behavior of NPCs and the tongue-in-cheek style and shutting down parties feels quite good. Gameplay might become repetitive in some situations but, overall, you'll have a nice time with it.
Sep 14, 2015For better and for worse, Party Hard is one of the most faithful tributes to the slasher genre. It overstays its welcome, but it's still a bloody fun time for the most part.
Sep 2, 2015It has a solid concept, but it does need some improvements here and there. We had fun playing it, though, and we're already looking forward to playing a sequel with some fixes and tweaks.

What you actually get is:
The game starts out with some cutscenes about some murderer that goes from Party to Party.
Afterwards you get dropped at one, and must kill all people.
The first stage is merely a tutorial.
The second stage, and the following stages aren't any different it's basically like this:
Activate some stage explosions to get rid of a lot of people.
Then wait for people to get separated, stab them - bug out though because you don't want to be seen with a fresh corpse, that's how you get busted.
Rinse and repeat, and trust me - this will take quite some time to get all people dead.
Now, the issue with this is:
The NPC behavior is randomized, just like what is available in certain stages. For instance, sometimes you get a bomb, sometimes you get spare clothes. Sometimes there's some speaker that blows up, sometimes not.
So, all you do really is waiting for random AI movement to have them separated so you can kill them.
And this gets boring really fast.
Whenever I play it I felt like I'd rather play Hitman: Blood Money, and just try to kill all people at the party level without getting caught.
I don't have anything against party people though :D - just saying this is what the game could have been like, and instead we got some half-assed assassin game where even Hotline Miami was more about stealth.… Full Review »

Great mix of stealth, fun and pixelart. The game is full of tiny little details that make you smile. Also, I was surprised to find a full storyline and a world map here.
And, of course, the music is GREAT. Very groovy. I'm almost dancing when hear it :)
PS: Played on a gamepad and it works great.
Totally recommend. Interesting idea, great music, fun realization. Quite fresh gameplay.… Full Review »
