Top Critic Average
High Hell is a challenging, cathartic, and unique shooter. There is beauty in its obnoxious aesthetics, and satisfaction in its fast-moving, mouse-mashing violence. It is a very short game, but one I expect to see become a darling of speedrun weekends and Twitch streams. High Hell is an anarchic injection of neon-pink adrenaline, made with a dirty needle. At only ten bucks, it's a dang cheap way to stick it to The Man.
High Hell is a fun, fast-paced shooter with a lot of personality. It keeps it simple — you can crouch, jump, and shoot — and it doesn't take itself seriously at all. It's challenging, but there aren't any long load times between death and charging back in again to give it another shot. If you don't mind the short playtime, you'll enjoy the charm and quirky boss battles.
High Hell is ample demonstration that good and simple game play still has a place in world of multi-gigabyte monsters with eight-figure (or higher) development and marketing budgets. It's perfect for those situations when you just want to sit down and shoot things for a few minutes without having to deal with even an iota of realism. After all, they're called "games" for a reason.
If you decide to pull the trigger on it, I can guarantee that you'll have an absolute blast.
High Hell will easily speak to every fan of the old-school FPS of the 90's. Thanks to its absurd design, Devolver's new game tastes like a nice trip of acid. The only downside to the formula is indubitably its short length, but we will gladly take those two hours of pure fun.

High Hell is, above all else, a confident game. There isn't anything standing in the way of blasting baddies off rooftops and crashing breakneck through every door in sight, all in acid-soaked neon pink style.
High Hell is a hellish shooter, full of non-sense and speed, a pure manifesto of what Devolver Digital is

While its longevity may be tied into just how willing players are to shoot for the highest score and go after as many achievements as possible, High Hell is a wicked little shooter that you won't soon be forgetting.
High Hell is a great game to play in short bursts. It's quirky, fast paced, and plays well aside from a few oversights.
With a cheap price, you really can't ask for a better deal. High Hell hits some great highs and does so without being padded out for length. Definitely worth a playthrough.
