    Blasphemous is an absolutely gorgeous game, the art style, characters, world design, and gameplay is amazing. Can definitely see this become one of my all-time favourite game! Beautiful!

    Blasphermous' largest strength is 100% in is stunning presentation presentation. The sprite artwork is absolutely amazing, and the art direction is very unique indeed. I can't think of any other game that borrows on the catholic themes and images and imagination in the game. The music is also very nice score which accompanies your journey to the tone of perfection.In some ways the musicBlasphermous' largest strength is 100% in is stunning presentation presentation.

The music is also very nice score which accompanies your journey to the tone of perfection.In some ways the music score even compliments the world to utter perfection at times. The gameplay is overly fun, even if a if a tad on the basic side. The combat consists of parrying enemies and occasionally using some questionably useful magic attacks to defeat your foes. You can unlock special moves along the way as well, but I rarely found a use for the special moves although they did look nice. There's also a lot of platforming, which is probably where you're going to die the most. Most bosses are tough, but don't fell cheap, and there is a checkpoint just before each one, so complaints there. While there aren't any major flaws apart from some bugs, I do have some gripes with the game. Firstly, there aren't enough fast travel locations in the world, and you're gonna be doing a ton of backtracking if you want to 100% the game. If you're going for 100% you're gonna have a frustrating experience, since there is no way to quickly check certain collectibles, and the map is incredibly basic without any option to leave markers or waypoints to help you along your journey, But overall I truly enjoyed my time with Blasphermous and I can only hope were to see more DLC for this Xbox gem in the future.

    Sensacional propuesta del estudio español The Game Kitchen. Un "metroidvania" endiabladamente difícil con temática relacionada con la Semana Santa y el folklore español. El juego es una auténtica sorpresa para este 2019 y muy recomendable para jugadores que hayan disfrutado títulos como BloodStained, Hollow Knight o Dead Cells. Gustará a los más jugones.

    Desafiante, absorbente y tremendamente adictivo. Posee una estética alucinante.

    Awesome indie game! Incorporates a lot of good stuff from both Castlevania and Soulsborne games! The artstyle and atmosphere is extremely good, buy it and enjoy it, it is worth the money.

    Amazing concept, horrendous execution. Controls suck more dick than Pamela Anderson.

    Este es el mejor juego español de todos los tiempos. Su Pixel Art es un trabajo fantástico. Su mezcla entre Castlevania y Dark Souls hace que sea un juego rico en exploración y brutal en sus combates. Este es el tipo de juego indie que hay que apoyar, ya que las grandes compañías en la actualidad tienen abandonado este estilo de juego.

    The art is definitely beautiful, but it lacks in everything else. Nothing new in metroidvania, terrible mechanics and nonsense progression and enemies design. This game deserves a 5-6 score, leaving a 0 behind to actually hit all those overhyped bois leaving a 10. ugh.

    Dark, bold and satisfying. Like all the best sins, Blasphemous is bloody good fun. [Issue#183, p.83]

    Challenging and forceful 2D action-adventure set within a straggly world – each and every of the many deaths will be worthwhile.

    Blasphemous treats the player mercilessly, but it's solid controls and mechanics, in addition to it's absolutely stunning aesthetics and complex and vast lore turns the game into fascinating (yet not flawless) experience.
