game release date for PC:
Jupiter Hell for PC is a turn-based roguelike RPG. It is considered to be a spiritual successor to DoomRL. Both games have been developed by Chaos Forge.
The action of Jupiter Hell is set inside the space stations located across several moons orbiting around Jupiter. In their vicinity, gates to hell have opened allowing waves of demons to flood the universe. A player assumes the role of a lonely marine, who is the last hope for stopping the demonic invasion.
The PC release of Jupiter Hell is a classic turn-based roguelike game, thus the gameplay revolves around traversing consecutive levels filled with demonic monsters. All the maps, locations, events, as well as the distribution of both traps and enemies are procedurally generated. Interestingly enough, the game delivers access to several such generators, each one providing different results. The game offers a campaign divided into particular missions that push the story forward; nonetheless, players can enjoy tons of random side missions as well.
Despite the turn-based mechanics, Jupiter Hell for PC has been designed to deliver dynamic gameplay. The players are bound to spend most of the time on fighting diverse monsters, often employing different strategies. Players can wield a powerful weapons arsenal and a wide range of items that increase his combat potential.
As befits a true roguelike game, the player has to start the adventure all over again every time the protagonist dies (character's death is permanent). Moreover, the game features high difficulty level, which, however, is well balanced and if a player fails, itís usually their own fault. Each death serves as a lesson, which allows a player to be more efficient with each attempt to beat the game.
