SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell is not for the faint-hearted. Developed by Pine Studio and published by Headup Games, SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell is a brutal game where getting from point A to point B is anything but simple. Be prepared to die, a lot and if need be, walk away from your controller before you find yourself regrettably destroying expensive equipment.
SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell is the world’s only competitive heavy metal first-person platformer. SEUM is truly hardcore and focuses on speed and fast reactions. Race across and jump over platforms and bounce pads while shooting fireballs as you battle to reach an exit portal in the minimum amount of time. Reverse time and gravity. Compete with all players for top times in the online high score ladder. Only the toughest players will receive the Uber Skull medals!
If mind-blowing speed and adrenaline blasting its way through your body seems too boring for your speed running blitzkrieg, then search for the beer cans hidden in each level. Who knows which secrets can be discovered by finding all of these delicious refreshments?
- Can’t get much more old school than this!
- Over 100 levels, each more devilish than the last, with secrets around every corner.
- Shoot fireballs, reverse gravity, teleport and dodge obstacles to solve challenges.
- Leaderboards in each level so you can see how you fare against your friends (and enemies).
- Original soundtrack that’ll have you tearing through the levels with blazing speed.
For starters, the music in this game is incredible. That’ll probably be the first thing you notice about SEUM. The heavy metal tracks really compliment the fast paced nature of this game and seriously, when you think of Hell, you think heavy metal.
Graphic wise, it has that classic Doom style look to it in terms of color pallet and visuals, but better. I mean there’s just something really nostalgic about it. It’s not quite early 90’s style Doom, but it’s familiar enough where you can’t help but smile.
Now if you check out the gameplay video above, you’ll see that I only went through the first few levels and the first “boss level”. Let me tell you, while there are no enemies to fight, these levels are incredibly stressful and nerve racking if you don’t have the patience to pick yourself up and keep trying. This is the type of game where each failure is a learning experience and each death only makes you a better player.
Overall though, from what I’ve played so far, SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell is a very interesting game, one that I could really get into. It’s super challenging and I like the fact that it reminds me a whole lot of Doom, but also very different at the same time. The theme however is a bit adult so use discretion when playing it around children.
