A formulaic Metroidvania with satisfying combat and a thick mood in the air, Blasphemous uses its pixel art style and fixation on religious iconography to establish a powerful vision of a forsaken world.
If you’re skilled, you can speed through in a little over ten hours, though exploring every nook and cranny of the map and finding all of the collectables can take upwards of double that, especially considering there are two endings to experience. At any rate, Blasphemous is torturously fun, and one of the best the genre has to offer.
Blasphemous is a gory and creepy action-platformer set in a non-linear 2D pixel world, featuring a variety of enemies, equippable items, and traversable environments. The title, which starts off strong thanks to its hack and slash combat, is let down by repetitive mechanics that do not particularly reward using the available combos though. The design and art style is where Blasphemous shines brightest though, offering a pixelated world, although this might not be enough to separate it from the more extraordinary Metroidvanias out there.
