A light RPG with a healthy dose of humor, Escape from Hell is based on an interesting premise: you are a typical guy who's one day mysteriously "zapped" into Hell. And now you must find a way out alive. Talk to lots of Hellish creatures, bear witness to applications of inventive torture methods and find out why, aside from the apologetic note in Hell's phone booth, your guardian angel never shows up. |
Gameplay is standard top-down RPG fare, with simplified statistics and a good amount of adventure-style puzzle solving. The designer missed no opportunity in poking fun at Bible stories and pop culture: everything from weapon choices, non-player characters, and location descriptions are tongue-in-cheek and some are flat-out funny. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to try a good RPG parody, but don't be fooled by the simplified statistics though: the game will take you quite a while to finish.
