About

Chasing Styx is an action-packed, three-headed dog, run 'n' gun, couch co-op, bullet-hell adventure.

You are Cerberus, feared guardian of the Underworld. While sleeping on the job, a herd of woodland rabbits hopped into the kingdom of the dead. Hades is not pleased – the boisterous bunnies are distracting the inhabitants from their endless torment. Find your floppy-eared friends and get them back across the River Styx before hell freezes over!

Explore the far reaches of the Underworld, including a forest bathed in darkness and a cursed bell tower. Levels can be approached in any order and feature multiple routes filled with disgruntled dead, tricky traps, hidden treasures, and screen covering waves of bullets. Defeat armies of the dead and collect their souls to level up and equip powerful attacks and abilities. Two player local co-op is supported so bring a friend to help conquer the fast-paced action and frenetic boss battles.

Features:

  • ludicrous amounts of bullets
  • multiple difficulties with unique enemy spawns and boss attacks
  • alternate modes of play including a boss rush and survival maps
  • 18 unique abilities used to upgrade your hellhound
  • challenges that unlock silly dog costumes

Chasing Styx reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
The Terrible and Terrible (no) three-headed Cerberus guards the gates of Aida. Only the poor fellow fell asleep at work and rabbits from the local forest ran into the realm of the dead. Rabbits distract the deceased from eternal torment and torture, so not to be angry bosses us, ie almost infernal hounds will have to collect them and expel back. + Free game + Nice pixel art, not new-fashioned, but rather authentic 16bit + Soundtrack. Not a fan of electronic zapals, but the local electronics chic fits the scene on the screen + Honest Bullethjell. Despite the chaos on the screen, even such far from the genre of the fool, as I managed to find an approach to each boss-Control on the pad-not very, on the keyboard-infernal Hell Chic Toy, got three hours of positive free. The Game is definitely worth the attention and undeservedly hangs in the niches of the steampunk.

So, this is not the game you will talk about again in years and even if the management of the 3 heads brings its little interesting touch we remain still on the classic. Now, visually it's pretty clear most of the time, and at the pad the game is very nice to take in hand. As for the music they are pretty dynamic especially the theme of the bosses. For the life span, you can finish the game in 3 hours without forcing, but by passing next to half of the items of the game. On this side, I am not a fan of the concept namely several itineraries but only 1 on which the upgrade will be found. This is more of the forced lifespan and we do not necessarily take pleasure in redoing the level but symmetrically. In the end, the game is free, you do not lose anything to try it if the bullet hell is to your liking.

Chasing Styx is a free Shoot ' em up also called Bullet Hell, in the End We ball like the Savages on everything that twitches and some things don't shrugs, the players back. This makes the brisk become a Kind of Skill Game in terms of Dodging. The Game is supposed to be a Kind of Retro game, that you can see in Optics, control (which is a pure Plague), Gedudel (I refuse to call this music) and Game Design. The whole Game is kept quite Simple, I personally don't enjoy it, because the Controls, the Dudel and The level Design are simply the Plague, but For very hard-edged fans of this Genre, so people who also like to caste Themselves with Nail boards, Whips at The Wall as a successful Decoration, or to pull in Bundestag speeches from the CSU as a Podcast, they could possibly like this. But it's free. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZZU9Vt6p9U
