    BUTCHER is a fast-paced, bloody shootfest which gives you a run for your money. You die easily but keep playing because the game is so much fun. A must-buy for those who like a challenge.

    It’s brief, chaotic, and hard as nails, but this is a glorious throwback that every fan of 90s shooters should pick up. Brutal and loud, BUTCHER makes for a suitable companion to last year's excellent DOOM reboot.

    Quick and tough, Butcher's classic platformer gameplay will keep you glued to your screen for a while, especially if you like a challenge.

    BUTCHER doesn't innovate the videogame market, but it's fun and should be enjoyed by gamers who are searching for a nice challenge.

    This is a game for 2D shooters fans, even though we can't help but feel it is an unpolished gem that could have been so much more.

    Butcher is a fun, addictive riff on a classic genre with an uncompromising approach that makes it feel both rewarding and frustrating. You're unlikely to get much mileage out of it unless you like a lot of repetition and a torturous level of challenge but if you're attracted by its over-the-top retro aesthetic, it's definitely worth checking out.
  7. 60
    BUTCHER pays a visceral tribute to DOOM on a 2D plane. The gameplay can be a bit shallow, the difficulty can result in repetition, but if you enjoy the speed run scene then this could have some legs.

    Wtf?! Are people retarded? Why is this game not given more attention, it is so frickin' awesome! It's a gritty ultra voilent 2d sidescrollingWtf?! Are people retarded? Why is this game not given more attention, it is so frickin' awesome! It's a gritty ultra voilent 2d sidescrolling shooter inspired by Doom & Quake. It is fast gory has a really cool ( but super pixelated ) art style, the guns are so cool they thunder like howitzers and ALWAYS turn enemies to puddles of bloody gore! Music is cool dark industrial kind of grinding and pounding ( a bit hard to explain) I bought this game because it was cheap, I had seen the mixed reviews so I didn't expect much but DAMN this game is good! It is short though, I got through it in an hour but since it was so cheap and because of replay value I think it was worth it. Buy the game it's awesome! Expand
