Outside of that scope, it’s a bit difficult to recommend Hell Architect, especially with its hefty price tag. It simply falls short. Hell Architect is perfect for those seeking a fresh twist on the genre, but for those not interested in a colony simulator you might want to stay away. I am hopeful, however, that Woodland Games can add some DLC to provide more content in the future.
Stripped of its hellish veneer and of the illusion you’re actually calling the shots, Hell Architect is a relatively run-of-the-mill management game. It’s by no means torture to play, but it fails to live up to its wickedly intriguing premise – and the odd dashes of humour can’t fix that.
The biggest sin of Hell Architect is therefore poorly designed gameplay mechanics. This is a game in which I would really like to spend dozens of hours, expanding the hell of my dreams, because the idea for setting is simply great.

Hell Architect is quite a fun game in its approach, its visual style and its humor, but its gameplay is quite confusing and repetitive at times, with little clarifying tutorials and few game modes.

Hell Architect is a game with fun and deep gameplay, morbid but cute art style which is bogged down by its story mode and its irritating characters and forgettable soundtrack.
