Demon’s Tier+ is a dungeon role playing game with roguelike, arcade and adventure elements. It is reminiscent of 80’s/90’s old school games with fast action and addictive gameplay. You enter the dungeons of King Thosgar with the sole purpose of destroying his demonic minions.

Demon’s Tier+ features procedurally generated dungeons, which means that your every encounter will be different from the previous one. This feature makes the game’s replay factor a delight, as you will not get bored by it too soon. You need to get through 15 dungeon levels, and all of them have a different objective, which you need to complete to be able to progress to the next one. ĥ̶͙͔̯h̷͈̠̺̞̬͆U̸̠̹͂W̸͈̣̠͚̃̃͌͂̚ͅ/̶̡̼̜͔̋͐̍̔͌Ķ̸̄͌r̷͓͙͙̺͒̏ͅ#̴̝̞̝͍̋͆ơ̵̧̗̭̔́̓G̵͇̝͂̂̾̈́̂à̶͊̔͠ͅv̸̥̫̘̹͖̋e̷͉̮͙̪͎̎͒̀̚5̷̤́͒ͅ)̸̢̟͉͐M̶̛̟͗͐#̷̼͇͚͎͚̅͌͆͛Q̷̪͎̣̭̒̅̆̋͠ͅ6̷͚̤̭͙̄̊”̷̝̣͇̱̔̿Ḽ̶̗̪̔̅̔̈̏Ṕ̷̘͕̗̯̝̅͊̏̕H̴̘̰̀̄h̴̨̘̜͒̑͝ȉ̵͎́͂̿ Game is made with an astonishing 16-bit pixel graphics, and its design details and artwork combine into a great atmosphere. The whole experience is led by a catchy high quality chiptune soundtrack. Demon’s Tier+ features eight heroes with unique abilities, and a huge number of weapons and items. The enemies are vicious and are seasoned with final bosses’ encounters between the levels.

It is combining the best elements from Xenon Valkyrie+ and Riddled Corpses EX, and is the latest game release by Diabolical Mind and it concludes a trilogy. Both games were developed by the same developer and released in 2017 and 2015, respectively (the games were released in 2018 for PlayStation’s consoles). ú̷̢̢̟̙͍̀̀̍͠u̶̖̥̥̽͛X̴̹̗̼͒B̶̧̼͑̉̃̓p̵̰̳̼͙͇̃A̷͕̜̩̙̦͑̄̀͐͝r̵̺̟̭͂͌͜D̶̼͙́v̶̛͎̲͑̉̒r̸̼̯͚͎̳̄̿͗̈¨̸̞̜͈̟̭̋J̴̟̟̇͑ͅ0̴̧̖̑͊̈͆͝5̸̤̤̪̈Ś̷͉q̷̳̫͛̏̑̾P̶̺̘͔̗̝͗̂͆/̴̛̹̀̑̇͘B̴͕̦͚̺͓͑̇̓͆0̴͈̟̈͋̅S̸̳̖͌&̴̺̗̈́̊o̸̧̝̓D̸̲̥̺̩̈́̀%̴̱̝͈̻̮̈́̏ Demon’s Tier+ features an epic storyline that ties in with the previous two titles and also offers a multiplayer 2 player couch co-op mode on all of the home consoles – PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One. The game is also translated and localized into four languages – English, French, Spanish and German.

The game can be bought digitally for 9,99€ or region’s equivalent amount. Here, we are reviewing the PlayStation 4 version, which is crossbuy in both regions, American and European. This means that you receive both the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita versions with a single purchase. A bargain not to be missed, especially if you own both consoles.
