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.

If someone like me could enjoy speedrunning and do pretty well, I believe this game is suitable for both casual speedrunners and veterans alike.

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.

Fun, challenging, fast and testing our reflexes. But also repetitive, frustrating and with a graphical section that lacks.

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.

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.

SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell is a repetitive game, but one that has enough draw to it to give you that “just one more go” drive.
