About

Hades is a rogue-like dungeon crawler that combines the best aspects of Supergiant's critically acclaimed titles, including the fast-paced action of Bastion, the rich atmosphere and depth of Transistor, and the character-driven storytelling of Pyre.

BATTLE OUT OF HELL
As the immortal Prince of the Underworld, you'll wield the powers and mythic weapons of Olympus to break free from the clutches of the god of the dead himself, while growing stronger and unraveling more of the story with each unique escape attempt.

UNLEASH THE FURY OF OLYMPUS
The Olympians have your back! Meet Zeus, Athena, Poseidon, and many more, and choose from their dozens of powerful Boons that enhance your abilities. There are thousands of viable character builds to discover as you go.

BEFRIEND GODS, GHOSTS, AND MONSTERS
A fully-voiced cast of colorful, larger-than-life characters is waiting to meet you! Grow your relationships with them, and experience hundreds of unique story events as you learn about what's really at stake for this big, dysfunctional family.

BUILT FOR REPLAYABILITY
New surprises await each time you delve into the ever-shifting Underworld, whose guardian bosses will remember you. Use the powerful Mirror of Night to grow permanently stronger, and give yourself a leg up the next time you run away from home.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE
Permanent upgrades mean you don't have to be a god yourself to experience the exciting combat and gripping story. Though, if you happen to be one, crank up the challenge and get ready for some white-knuckle action that will put your well-practiced skills to the test.

SIGNATURE SUPERGIANT STYLE
The rich, atmospheric presentation and unique melding of gameplay and narrative that's been core to Supergiant's games is here in full force: spectacular hand-painted Underworld environments and a blood-pumping original score bring the Underworld to life.

Hades reviews and comments

Concise Review:

Satisfying, clever, engaging, addicting and very very fun. The combat feels tight, responsive and dynamic. The progression is very well done. The number of different builds is incredible. I loved experimenting with different strategies. The story, voice acting and writing is surprising well done. The longevity was amazing. Fucking great game.

Final Score: A-

Journal Style Review:

First impressions. The art style looks nice enough. The gameplay feels tight. We will see if the game does a good job at bringing me back. 

I can tell what people are talking about after my first night of playing. It’s really good. It’s addictive. I’m really enjoying figuring out what all the different symbols mean and how to spend the various points. The combat is fast and feels great. It’s hard to describe why it feels good but it does.

I’m loving coming up with new builds that mesh well together. I feel smart finding synergies and there is a lot to experiment with. Also the writing is funny and the voice actors are really good. Talking to the characters has been entertaining rather than a chore.

I don’t think I’m as good as I should be. But I’m also using a different weapon every game. Which I’m enjoying but I know I’d be able to progress further if I used my most successful weapons consistently. I change it up every time to get the bonus purple gems and to keep it fresh.

I’ve made it to hades twice now. Havnt won yet. Once with a bow doom build that was insane and once with the gun with chill. Range weapons are the best I think. They have some interesting builds and the distance makes it easier to stay high on health.

I’ve fought hades three times now. I was super close this last time. I had the rail gun with Zeus and Poseidon mainly. There was some good synergy. I beat hades once but then on the second health bar I was like a 6th of a bar left. Very close. I blew it too. I had such a good build and I started with 4 revives and full health. I was set. A lot of fun though. This game is great. I can’t wait to try again. At this point I feel like I want to escape with every weapon at least once. It’s hard to tell how long I will enjoy this game but I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon as of now.

Got my first escape. Used the bow and Zeus as a primary. It was great. I’m still motivated to keep playing. I’m going to try to escape with every weapon. I might do some bounties as well when I want to use my favourite weapons again.

After beating hades for the first time I won the next 4 in a row. Shield, rail, spear and bow with heat. I’m still loving this game.

Bow is my best weapon, I have 3 clears with the bow. Rail gun is second best. I just had my best escape yet for most health remaining. It was a fast attack speed doom build and it was insane. Still loving the game. Still staying up late playing just one more run. This game is climbing the ranks. High A-.

Just beat the mains story and got the credits. I actually liked it. It’s a clever ending. And I still want to keep playing. I followed it up with my best bow build yet on heat 3. It was a breeze. My build was unreal. 

15 escapes and I’m still enjoying the game. I still find reasons to keep playing. It still feels like there are new builds to make and new weapons upgrades to try out.

24 escapes. I’m slowing down now which makes sense but wow I’m surprised how long I’ve wanted to play this game. I don’t think im fully done yet either. But I am starting to feel like I’ve run out of new unique builds. 

I’m putting it down for now but I can see myself returning for more runs in the future every so often. Loved this game.

Picked it up again after a short break. 50 clears now. A short break made the builds feel fresh again. I don’t know when but I’m confident I’m going to come back again.

I’ve now played over 100 runs. I feel similarly towards hades as I did towards Warzone back in 2019/2020. I just keep returning. I will have a couple other games on the go but I still would rather do another run Hades. This is the highest compliment I can give. Fantastic game. I fucking love it. 

Final Score: A-

Slept on this game for ages but the other day I finally bit the bullet.

Yeah I see why this game is so popular. I spent a good portion of my time at work today wishing I was at home playing Hades.

Okay let's start with the negatives.

I so far don't have any.

Now into the good stuff.

I like me some good voice acting and this game has it.

I like good art style and level design and this game has it.

I love love love a good OST and this game HAS IT.

I love fluid and intuitive combat systems and this game HAS IT.

I love the feeling of falling in love with a game and this game HAS IT.

I love a good perk system and this game has it.

I love that even though you start from square one after every death it NEVER feels like bullshit or feels repetitive in any way, more so of a "Yeah, I got it this time."

I love that after progressing through what seems like at the time to be "A bullshit bossfight" I went "Hey, if I tried this .." and shredded said bullshit boss fight.

This game is good. If you're an idiot like me and sleeping on this game, stop, wake up; you aren't Green Day. This is a game worth every penny.

Hades is one of the most flawless video games/pieces of art I have ever experienced.

The gameplay loop is incredibly satisfying, the many linking systems increase the longevity from 7 hours to 70 hours and more

The music is tremendous, the art style and visual are gorgeous. The story, characters, voice acting and dialogue had me completely hooked.

Do yourself a favour and buy this game, you probably already have it though

I gave it a try. I hate repetition but there have been a few rougelites that I have enjoyed. This is not one of them. Most of the game is well made but the repetition is ridiculous. After the first couple of runs I was already bored with the first level. The poorly named "god mode" is the only reason I stuck it out. I can't bring myself to play anymore after a single completion.

Date Completed: 2021-03-09
Playtime: 9h
Enjoyment: 5/10
Recommendation: If you like rougelites you'll like it.
Best game you can play handheld on switch

Hades is an incredibly addicting rogue like dungeon crawler, that deftly balances infinite death with story and character growth.  It’s fast paced and challenging, while still giving you what you need in terms of story and upgrades to keep you motivated to keeping going (and dying.)

It’s almost a bit like Civilization, where you will be playing late into the night, trying to shut it off while constantly saying to yourself it’s only one more turn.

With incredibly tight mechanics and addicting gameplay loop, Hades is the ultimate rogue-like. The variances in weapons, plus insanely strong character builds, all randomized by upgrades, create a game that is so satisfying to play. The art direction, music, and voice acting all contribute to elevate this indie game to the big leagues.
