Game Review – Deathspank


 
Death Spank Trailer


„Death Spank“ is an comedy action hack & slay from the indie Studio Hothead games. The creative mastermind behind the game is Ron Gilbert, the maker of many classics such as “The Secret of Monkey Island” or “Maniac Mansion”(!).

The game features a similar game play to Diablo but is laced with clever metaphors, interesting characters, witty dialogues, and a TON of humor. The game play is simple, yet addictive. The artwork is brilliant, and the story is surprisingly different in an industry of clones of clones of clones…

I personally have not yet played the co-op mode, but am told it lacks meaning. Player two helps out a little.. but has no real purpose in the digital reality. Never the less, it’s fun if a friend comes over and wants to join in the hacking and slashing.

Because the game dose not try to rape the graphics card, it can also be played with older pc´s. The game is a treat to play, and is totally worth 13 Euros (current price on steam).

  11. Why does the name of this game company sound so familiar?...I remember The Secret of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion, but I just can't remember where I've heard the name of the company before.
