About this game

Hades is a god-like rogue-like action role-playing video game. The game was officially created and published by Supergiant Games. On September 17, 2020, the developer released the game versions for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, and macOS. This came after an early access release in December 2019.

Basically, Hades combines the best aspects of Supergiant’s critically acclaimed titles. Some of these titles include the fast-paced action of Bastion, the rich atmosphere and depth of Transistor, and character driven storytelling of Pyre.

Game Play

As a player, you control Zagreus, Hades’ son and an immortal Prince who tries to escape from the Underworld for Mount Olympus. He uses his powers and mythic weapons from the Olympian gods, enabling him to fight his way through gangs of gods of the dead and monsters. Sometimes, there are gifts granted to him from the rest of the Olympians.

For every run, the player gets tricked through random rooms filled with rewards and enemies. With the hack and slash war system, you can use the main weapon attack, magic ability and dash power to conquer them while preventing damaging the game’s progress. If Zagreus dies, you can use the collected treasure to boost some attributes or even unlock new abilities and weapons to increase the chances of subsequent runs.

What makes Hades unique?

The good thing with this video game is that the Olympians give the player incredible help. Gods such as Athena, Ares, and Zera come with different abilities, from deflection to thunder boons. The ultimate aim is to make your battle successful. Besides, there is plenty of other powerful and viable character builds to explore as you play.

Death is what makes the games’ story line. In these moments, you can see Zagreus bubbling out of a pool of blood in case of a failure. Not forgetting his furious fights and beats. There are many gods and forgotten heroes at the Hades’ palace who are pretty interesting to spend time with. The relationship between Zagreus and the whip-welding rage Megaera is what makes Hades also very compelling.

Bottom Line

Hades is among the best video games you can find in the last decade, published by a reputable company. Even if you don’t like rogue-like games, where the player dies more often to advance, you will enjoy and love this game after giving it a try. Its video graphics are superb and gives a lively feeling and atmosphere that every video gamer looks out for.
