Hellmut wants to live forever, however he made a mistake. Use absurd transformations to defeat demonic hordes, challenge random bosses in random levels and save him.

Despite a relatively standard roguelike dungeon crawler framework, Hellmut's mutation swapping madness gives this twin-stick shooter a breath of originality and satisfying destruction that separates it from the competition.

HELLMUT: The Badass from Hell is a wonderfully crazy and exciting 2D bullet-hell dungeon crawler with an eclectic mix of weapons and upgrades or transformations to play as. It’s hellish in its design but heaven to play, especially when you nail sections without taking damage or timing your powers just right. There is a surprising amount of depth here, with the balance between exploring for treasure and killing to reach your goal, or the choices you make in the store, all adding layers to what makes a very addictive and fulfilling shooter.

Hellmut: The Badass from Hell won't change the beat ‘em up genre, but it is, indeed, a recommendable acquisition for those who like these kind of games and, actually, for everyone who wants some carefree fun.

Hellmut: The Badass from Hell is a few steps short of being an all-around must-have roguelike shooter. The camera is zoomed in enough and just jerky enough that some enemies can be easily hidden from view. There's also the character unlocking process, which is only valuable if you plan on taking multiple successful runs through the game. With that said, the action is excellent, and the flaws aren't enough to stop the title from having that sort of magic that beckons you for one more run. Despite not being the first choice for a roguelike shooter, Hellmut is ultimately a good choice.

A fast-paced twin-stick shooter that doesnt do a lot to stand out but offers a blast of fun in short doses

Hellmut: The Badass From Hell is an interesting rogue-like shooter where you can transform into various deadly creatures. The gameplay is engaging but doesn't get too difficult and doesn't take long to complete a run. Having multiple forms is fascinating and very helpful in the long run.

Hellmut: the Badass from Hell is not a game for everyone. Less experienced players will feel put off by its very demanding level of difficulty, while more seasoned veterans will enjoy its mix of varied characters and procedurally generated levels with a tough challenge threshold. While the audiovisual environment is far from being something spectacular, Hellmut: the Badass from Hell can certainly keep a demanding player's attention for a long time.
