Hell Pie is a 3D platformer that's crude, rude and has some of the best locomotion in the genre thanks to its grappling gameplay.

In Hell Pie there was the risk that all efforts made in the creation of a crazy and irreverent storytelling could detract energies and resources from the actual gameplay development. Luckily, devs did not get lost along the way and what we have here is an excellent 3D action platformer, which also entertains us with its demential humor without falling into the trap of being little more than a collection of crass jokes. There are some minor flaws, but nothing major.

Hell Pie is a vile platformer that struggles to nail the landing. Certain segments beam with ingenuity to create some fun and exciting moments, however, an array of bugs, inconsistent mechanics and an overall lack of polish make the game a lackluster experience. It’s great to see 3D platformers aimed at an older audience and even though it does manage to stir that feeling of nostalgia, it relies too heavily on games of the era which makes Hell Pie feel dated.

Hell Pie isn’t the funniest game around but it really doesn’t need to be, because its solid gameplay and fantastically disgusting world is more than enough to carry its not-so-lovable hero through the duration of this not-so-family-friendly adventure.

Hell Pie has the beginnings of an entertaining game with a silly sense of humour and classic platformer action, which has sadly been scuppered on the Switch by a glitch that crashes the game as soon as you hit the second level.

Incredibly enjoyable locomotion abilities, pleasant collectibles to find, and fun (albeit simple) platforming puzzles are all that await those that are willing to look past Hell Pie's grotesque themes of animal abuse, drug use, and religious tones.

It says a lot about the quality of the underlying game design that I kept coming back despite regularly running into issues. I'd love to speak more positively about Hell Pie, and I may very well wind up picking it up on another platform, but the compromises on Switch are going to be too much for most players. I sincerely hope this port can be salvaged through updates because I firmly believe Hell Pie is a very good game, and this version just doesn't do it justice.

For fans of 3D platformers, Hell Pie has a lot to offer. It’s an inventive little title with an original premise and setting, and while it has some issues, it’s enjoyable on the whole. For those that can see past its drab visuals and overcome the occasional frustration, then, it’s worth picking up. Well, as long as you’re happy with ripping off horns from defenceless animals for your benefit.

Hell Pie does a decent job of combining Conker's Bad Fur Day and Whiplash but it's certainly not as enjoyable as either of them.

A short 3D platformer that results in a very entertaining demonic rose ride. Each level is a playground of amusements and obscenities that fit perfectly with the cartoon and gore tone it shares.

Hell Pie is a vile and crude 3D platformer that will make you laugh. With many well-trodden mechanics and interesting levels to explore, this will keep you busy. If you love your collectables, then this is the game for you!

While a lot of "Hell Pie" jokes might not land as well some of the later areas are stretched too thin, It's still a great platformer with extremely rewarding movement, secrets and full of collectibles for you to enjoy.

Hell pie is a very naughty diversion that is a pleasure to play from time to time. It features original and fun level design and themes, a nasty and provocative tone that runs throughout the game, and solid handling that makes playing the game a real joy. If you like collectible games and black humor, it'll take you a while to get hold of it.

Although its self-aware vulgarity doesn't always hit the mark, Hell Pie has enough good ideas in its level design to be a good choice for fans of the genre.

Hell Pie shows that it doesn't necessarily need a huge open world or an endlessly complex story to create a good game. The combination of the sometimes super-silly humor and the detailed worlds have ensured that I have become a real fan of Nate and Nugget. Even though I still encountered one or two bugs: the game doesn't have to hide from the "big" platformer heroes at all and provides several hours of fun. I'm curious to see if Nate and Nugget can establish themselves in the world of Spyro and Crash Bandicoot and if we'll see more of the likeable duo.
