From the minds of Avenged Sevenfold comes Hail to the King: Deathbat.

Deathbat is a 3rd person, action adventure RPG, a throwback to the classics of yesteryear. The game’s story is based on the mythical origin of the Deathbat, Avenged Sevenfold’s logo and mascot. The game’s design is not for the faint of heart as players will need to traverse the underworld, combat skillful undead, and best unforgiving bosses. The epic story follows Andronikos, the resurrected King of the Underworld and the embodiment of the Deathbat, who is tasked with reclaiming the lands of Haides from the despotic Dark Andronikos. Along the way you’ll mix and match brutal melee combat with projectile magic attacks battling through beautifully designed and hellish landscapes inspired by the band’s iconic discography and artwork. Interact with characters along the way to solve puzzles and unlock the mysteries of Moros Island.

Hail to the King: Deathbat features classic Avenged Sevenfold tracks along with a new and original score, composed by the band in the immortal tradition of 8-bit masterpieces like Castlevania.

Hail to the King: Deathbat reviews and comments

Quite simple mobile game garbage. The Graphics from the last Millennium, the Look and Feel in Terms of Animation and Control for getting used to it And "Avenged Sevenfold" as the driving Band behind the Project is not really inspiring. If a Game is shit-like this one-then even a good metal band does not save it for a long time (!) (!). Also: Currently, the shopping page features display "Steam collection cards," but is a Lie. Instead, there are terribly designed Trophies. Little and those that exist mostly say: Do everything! A Glance at the achievement statistics shows how balanced the Tasks have been defined. Oh... By the way. The ESC button finishes the Game without an Interim Dialogue on the Spot. Class if you get it misunderstood to make a reasonable PC port. Uninstalled. * hooray *

Of course the graphics are not mind blowing, but it gives the game a quite charming touch. When I started playing Deathbat I could not shake off the feeling of the old Castlevania games, in a positive way! The game often frustrated me (and made me want to succeed), because the enemy was to hard or I missed the option to block attacks, or a quicksave. Even if you are not a fan of Avenged Sevenfold you can kill some time and have fun with this game. HTTK made me work and think: When playing you have to figure out how and when the monsters (especially bosses!) will attack. If you like collecting stuff and searching for hidden treasures, like me, you will have a great time! I promise. And what is important: The game still makes fun after you finish it. It never once got boring. I am not going to talk about the music much, I loved it. If you are into the genre you will also enjoy it.

The first thing I say about this Game is: Who the Back of the Game and why it was developed does not know will very likely be disappointed, so Inform yourself and please don't buy it until then. Now to the actual: As An A7x Fan, this Game is a must to have The Rev by his Side to fight against Evil is just great. And even though I didn't expect much from this Game, it made me very positive Surprised great Gameplay in the first Hour and the Swimfulness makes it something that ties you to the Seat because you really want to make it. Chopping Your Way through the monsters in D2 graphics is a lot of fun and this in today's Time of Nextgen Consoles and high-end Graphics. No Great Musical accompaniment of Songs that you simply have to know as a Fan. In Addition, new "songs" written especially for the Game, which are always worth listening to. My Conclusion: For every Real Fan of A7x, a definitive Buy recommendation. Without talking around big people just buy It and get your own picture of it. Even for People who do not know A7x can do the Game a lot of fun as the high Difficulty of the Game because it could awaken many People to live it over and over again to try;)
