If you're into challenging action platformer games, Blasphemous is as good as the next. It isn't perfect or revolutionary, but it doesn't have to be. Its lore and visual direction are disturbingly beautiful and craft an interesting and distinct world. Great boss fights and an enjoyable and challenging combat system ensures that fans of the genre will have enough to sink their teeth into and enjoy.
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.
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.
