I’ve no concept why did you chose to go to hell, however it’s quite apparent that it’s not nice there and you’ve to escape as quickly as possible. Obviously, it’s not as easy as getting there and the result is shown in Escape from Hell, an endless runner set on multiple lanes, with evil minions everywhere, waiting to stop you.

Escape from Hell is the first limitless runner that I’ve actually played which provides your main character more than one life … free of charge! You begin each run with three lifes in fact and you’ll quickly realize that it’s not nearly enough!

The game begins really slow-moving – a bit dull, really, but quickly gets the pace and becomes a virtually impossible game of skill where minions will originate from every direction, will be fast and will get you. Which is something that usually occurs in every endless runner.

However, Escape from Hell has some odd flaws: to start with, something that’s possibly interesting but for some reason proves to be inept, is the reality that the game enables you to continue your run from where you last passed away. This suggests that you’ll surpass that dull slow-moving paced part, but likewise that you are tossed into insane play with small possibilities of survival. So exactly what was plainly meant as a gameplay boost turns the game into short burst of disappointment. And that’s never good!

Also the game lacks one aspect that makes unlimited runners so great and addicting: upgrades. There’s absolutely nothing you can buy in Escape from Hell to boost your character’s statistics or abilities or to have some sense of achievement at all. Obviously, normally the goal of escaping from hell would suffice, but in this case there’s a big need for even more.

It’s not all bad things about Escape from Hell, though. The graphics manage to catch your eye, with a retro feel bringing back some sweet memories. However, you’ll rarely have the possibility to admire the view, as the rate of the game will only keep you concentrated on altering lanes to stay alive, which brings us to game controls. You control your character’s movement by tapping the left or right sides of the display and I there are no problems with this control technique – it gets the job done, however probably your fingers will tire at some point and you’ll need a break. It’s not the game’s fault, however.

All in all, Escape from Hell includes a fascinating setting and some great visuals, however unfortunately stops here in terms of providing a total product. The gameplay, although without any troubles itself, is recurring and uninteresting and the game fails to offer you a fair obstacle to keep you going. The absence of upgrades or any actual goal make this game one that you will not truly feel the need to play after inspecting it out.
