Take the Highway to Hell in Devil Daggers

Amongst the billowing, ever-present darkness lie swollen, trepanned skulls and chaotic spider beasts. Demonic, spined helixes tyrannize the space as boundless monsters materialize to haunt your impassioned, recurring endeavors. Whilst this might all sound like an extraordinarily bad dream, all is true of Sorath’s Devil Daggers. The void is calling, and it’s darkly inviting.

Inspired by 1990’s FPS and arcade games, Devil Daggers (via. Indie Game Mag) forces you into intense skirmishes with 13 terrifying enemies, against an ominously cavernous backdrop. Armed with enchanted daggers, the player’s objective is to fight for survival. You’ll be met with endless, but structured waves of enemies that allow players adapt their strategies according to their past experiences.

Holding left-click will send a swift flurry of daggers towards enemies, and as demons possess glowing weak points, you’ll need a little observation to maneuver your attacks. Right-click, on the other hand, is equipped with a powerful blast ability. Blasting takes a lot longer, however, so alternation could well be your best friend in this challenging, arcade rush.
