- Summary: Profane is a 3D boss rush Bullet Hell based on time. This means that you have to face every Boss and defeat them before your time runs out! Time is money and health, so acquiring abilities or being damaged will reduce your remaining combat time. You better watch out.

Apr 27, 2020As much as I loved every part of Profane, the whole "time" thing really killed the entire experience. The bosses are truly memorable encounters, the graphics, story, music and gameplay are all excellent; but the "time" thing... it feels like watching anything past season 12 of The Simpsons. The spirit is there, and it is amusing, but something just doesn't work. In the case of The Simpsons, we don't really know what happened; in Profane's case, we know it was being a slave to the clock that took a great thing and killed it, in this reviewer's eyes at least. There is no doubt that Profane is a good, if not great game, and for a certain subset of audiences, it will be a speed run, ultra-difficult sensation. This reviewer, however, is on to less frustrating experiences.
