8DAYS: Peace is our business The world has been dominated by dark forces since the beginning of human history. Known as the Masters of Mankind by those directly under their control, these dark forces will use any means necessary to protect their own interests -- including starting wars. In 8DAYS the mercenary team G.O.D. (Gold, Oil, and Diamonds, Inc) and the 8DAYS Magazine are two modern instruments used to control the masses. G.O.D. is primarily a peacekeeping force and 8DAYS ensures the bias of public opinion.

The frantic nature of the gameplay coupled with the appropriate difficulty of the game combine to deliver a fresh experience that is best suited for co-op play.

If you really enjoy the retro genre and a truly challenging game then this might be for you, but you can expect some serious punishment along the way.

If you are looking for a personality soaked nostalgia piece, that is as charming as it is challenging, then 8Days should fit the bill quite nicely. Though far from perfect, its charm helps cut through the frustrating quirks and lackluster checkpoint system. For some reason, even war crimes are more fun in 8-bit. So channel your inner Rambo, and stock up on ammo. You’ve got lots of cursing to do.

In 8DAYS the death is looking at you in every corner. You are a prisoner of war and you will have to escape your abductor from the torture room in which you were incarcerated. The game has a much higher difficulty than usual so the challenge is served. The isometric action closely compared with 'Hotline Miami' is what awaits you in this game in which you will not stop dying over and over again throughout the whole adventure.
