Critic Reviews for Infernax

From the moment you step onto these demon-infested lands to the moment you deal the killing blow to the game’s final boss, you’ll experience plenty of surprises – the Konami Code does something really cool, for example. Infernax’s retro soundtrack that rips from start to finish, beautiful art, challenging gameplay, and a fun Castlevania-inspired design, make it worth the price of admission.

Impressive efforts with a few noticeable problems holding them back. Won't astound everyone, but is worth your time and cash.

‎Without revolutionizing the metroidvania formula, Infernax manages to leave a very pleasant feeling. It does not invent anything, but the novelties it adds (decisions, NPCs with missions ...) make it a small and pleasant surprise within the subgenre. And in addition, it does so by squandering sympathy and with great replayable value.‎

Infernax is a great retro-styled title that adds in enough ideas of its own to stand up to modern standards. The gory combat and interesting level design maintain interest throughout, and there is lots of potential for replayability through the different moral paths to unlock. If retro gaming is your thing, then Infernax is a great game to add to your collection.

Infernax is in the right place between Ghost 'n Goblins and Castlevania, but it also has its own uniqueness that allows it to stand out. While playing, time flows by without you even noticing.

Infernax is a great mix of pixel-art nostalgia and modern narrative design that never fails to entertain.

Even though it was initially difficult and with very basic combat, Infernax wooed me with its comical gore, beautiful music and simple art style. Infernax will not be everyone's cup of tea but if you have a bit of time and want to play something a little different, I can recommend it. Just beware, you initially may need to navigate a bit of a skill wall of sorts to progress.

All in all, this review finds Infernax to be a bloody good time. Again, though, be sure you know exactly what you’re getting into. Also, be wary of the platforming.
