However, these problems are minor compared to everything else it gets right. As its name states, it’s a game that’s meant purely for speedrunning. No convoluted plot, no difficult game mechanics, just you and how fast you can make it to the finish line with your platforming skills. For how it was intended to be played, it does everything right and that’s something I can truly appreciat
SEUM delivers a good amount of entertainment, frustration, and the perfect bite-sized trials to hit, not just the ‘one more try’ feeling, but instead the ‘damn I was close and I won’t stop before beating this thing’.
With several modes to get lost in, addictive gameplay and incredible replayability, SEUM is one of the most promising platformers of the year so far and is well worth playing even by the most casual platforming fans.
SEUM is a great speedrunner. It's not as overwhelming as DeadCore, but also not as stunning. It's a leaderboard climbing in it's purest form. You need to find the best way to the end portal, while collecting all pickups and maybe even not dying once.

SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell is a love letter to all things metal and game. It's fast, like a bass drum hitting 200 BPM, and it's clearly inspired by the world of gaming today. While its idea may be old, it's clearly highly inspired. While it could definitely use more polish, the experience is absolutely worth it as-is. Let your inner Iron Maiden out, and go for a run.
If you want a challenge, then look no further because SEUM: Speedrunners From Hell is going to scratch that itch until it hurts. Once you've managed to complete the main campaign, you'll unlock an even harder experience as you try to unlock all trophies on your road towards the Platinum trophy. Fans of speedrunning are going to have a good time with this one!
SEUM takes us to a crazy hell where speed and our reflexes take the lead. With expanded content compared to multiple PC versions, Xbox One doubles the difficulty due to gamepad support.
