[PlayStation 4] SEUM: Speedrunners From Hell Review
SEUM: Speedrunners From Hell, as its name suggests, is a game aimed at the speedrunning community… and it’s a very challenging game at that! Learn more about this one in our SEUM: Speedrunners From Hell review!
SEUM: Speedrunners From Hell is a niche title that will certainly please the speedrunning community since it is a very challenging experience where every action counts and in which you’ll be aiming at lowering your overall time little by little for every stage in the game. As you can see from the trailer and the screens in this review, the game has a heavy metal theme, from the way it looks and the music that plays as you run and jump your way through each hazard-packed stage.
Playing Seum: Speedrunners From hell requires some precise timing and a lot of Zen-lie perfection on your end so that you can hit every single target in a level as you make your way to the exit. If you’re not into speedrunning games, then this one might feel repetitive and a bit frustrating, but if speedrunning is your thing then you’ll be happy to hear that this 3D game does that really well.
You play as an unnamed protagonist with ripped clothing and gloves with spikes. While you were minding your own business listening to some metal music and having a few beers, the devil comes along and steals your booze. A fight ensues you lose a limb, but you get an arm which you end up sewing into place. Your ultimate goal is to descend into the depths of hell to find your stolen booze. You will do this by using the speed and the powers that you gain from your new arm.
Levels are split into floors with an elevator that takes you further and further into the depths of oblivion. Each floor has ten levels and a boss level that will test everything you’ve learned up to that point. You must reach the end of a level where you’ll find a portal that will take you to the next level, but you must do this within a set time limit. If you fail, you can quickly retry and give it another go, learning from your mistakes as you go.
As you progress through the levels, the difficulty will ramp up, and if you thought that the difficulty during the first set of levels was high, just wait until you reach the second set and beyond! If you’re not patient enough and give the game a shot, or if you’re not into speedrunning, then you’re not going to like what this one has to offer. And if you’re not a fan of the metal scene, then this one might rub you the wrong way.
If you want a challenge, then look no further because SEUM: Speedrunners From Hell is going to scratch that itch until it hurts. Once you’ve managed to complete the main campaign, you’ll unlock an even harder experience as you try to unlock all trophies on your road towards the Platinum trophy. Fans of speedrunning are going to have a good time with this one!
