Critic Reviews for Huntdown

A 2D run and gunner that's as in your face as an 80s Troma classic, Huntdown matches its excess with brilliant detail.

Huntdown is a nihilistic, loud, explosive, even obnoxious arcade shooter. But behind its acid comic style and vulgar tone lies a superb, meticulously created action experience, packing in addictive and creative carnage, at breakneck pace, for an agreeable price. Heed the warning: Do Not Sleep on Huntdown. It's an absolute blast.

Huntdowns is a brilliant retro shooter, fast and defying, full of 80´s references and easter eggs. Local coop makes the game even better.

Huntdown is, quite simply, one of the best side-scrolling shooters I've ever played. Incredible retro pixel art, generous local co-op, a stonking frame rate and an addictive game play loop that had me coming back for more; Huntdown is the total package.

A nice old-school user with low in longevity and high in challenge. Especially good if you play it side by side with a friend. Excellent pixel-art.

Innovative gameplay and incredible aesthetics make Huntdown a must play run and gun shooter. With an array of difficulty options, side objectives and even co-op, it's a perfect starting point in the genre for all gaming backgrounds

It rarely swells beyond the sum of its parts; with parts as precision-tooled as this, it doesn't need to.

Enjoyable, brash and well designed. Huntdown is a fun action game full of charm and swagger. It has short, enjoyable levels and very well designed bosses. It's streamlined, old-school and not bloated in any way whatsoever. I thoroughly enjoyed my playthrough and may return at some point to mop up a few things I missed.
