    In the end though, perhaps what sets apart Project Warlock from the very recent old-school shooter renaissance we’ve been seeing is that outside of inspiration and certain elements it doesn’t look any one thing from the ‘90s. Which in the end makes it special, and something well worth checking out.

    Project Warlock is a fast-paced, fun and challenging old-school FPS, with a hint of RPG mechanics.

    Project Warlock proudly points to the forefront of the genre and provides players with a nostalgic ride full of weapons of mass destruction and crowds of various hell creatures and other monsters. [Issue#291]

    Project Warlock is just a damned blast. You could say this is the best version of Wolfenstein 3D ever made. Hell, it even tops the original Doom in some categories. It certainly won’t win awards for originality, but this is a true work of passion that pays off in the end.

    Project Warlock is a tastefully designed throwback to an era of classic shooters and teenage escapism, and as one would expect, shooting things in this game is so damn gratifying.

    Project Warlock is a Doom-like that packs a punch. The levels are full of secrets, the enemies have a great range of behaviours, and the weapons – boy, the weapons – are a joy to use. Add all of that to the 60 levels to learn and explore and the challenges provided by the higher difficulty levels and you have a winning formula. Even if the pixel graphics aren’t your usual cup of tea, Project Warlock is more than worth your time.

    A charming, but monotonous shooter bar any noteworthy elements.

As a big fan of FPS games I give it 10/10. You ask why? Answer is simple, after playing for 2 hours I realised that PW reminds me very old game I've played in the past - Gloom. Good old school for fans Expand

    Game is an instant classic, I spent the whole weekend replaying different builds and didn't study for my exam.
    Excellent sounds, art style, weapons feel so good to use, especially minigun (oh the sound), shotguns, magnum pistol, mage staff...
    Can easily recommend, well priced with free soundtrack, no pre release dlc BS like we get from ea, ubisoft or others.
    Can't wait what is coming next.

You could call it a remastered version of classics which is just perfect if you loved Doom, Hexen etc. but you already got used to smoother game-play served by modern games. This game is a huge dose of fun, great to unwind after a long day at work. Also it's very inspiring to see that the main developer is a young guy who prefers to make games rather than waste whole day on Netflix! God, I hope my kids will turn out like this too! Expand

Cartloads of amazing adventure... ok, killing and action. I very like the settings board where it possible to adjust almost every aspect of graphic. Too shame there's no multiplayer. Despite that game is awesome and you must just play it. Expand

I think 8.5 stars is the fair score to give the game itself, while additional star for the developer's approach and attitude, and up to 10 stars to give them a kickstart. In this crazy world of gaming of late, Project Warlock presents an unique, fresh and unbiased joy of gameplay. Call this a bliss of ignorance, or call it a pure talent, but this game is clearly something to support, enjoy and promote. I had lots of fun playing it, actually finished on the Casual level, with 13h+ gameplay on the clock. You may find lots of reviews everywhere but I tell you one thing: it is as mature and as creative as it can be. Thank you BuckShot Software. Expand

Putting both medieval and tech/gun elements in is a great idea, especially since you can upgrade weapons and stats to customize your character. Treasure actually helps your character, too!

    Only gripes are that there's too much "junk" in the levels to move around, and projectiles are too easily caught on corners.

    This is like replaying Catacomb 3D or Wolfenstein 3D, although it has some pretty interesting weapons and shooting mechanics. The level designThis is like replaying Catacomb 3D or Wolfenstein 3D, although it has some pretty interesting weapons and shooting mechanics. The level design is bland, mediocre at best. AI is nonexistent, but at least the monsters have some variety.
    There are sadly many better games on the market, so you may give this one a pass.
