Tormental is a roguelike shooter published by Croteam Publishing – a division of Croteam, the creators of Serious Sam series, and developed by Gungrounds.
The game described herein is a spin-off to the Serious Sam series. This time around, on his adventure in Egypt, Sam has found an artifact that allows him to enter the mind of Mental – a demigod of destruction. In order to survive and defeat the demigod, Sam has to do what he does best – kill countless enemies.
Tormental is an arcade shooter game in which players observe the action from the top-down perspective. One gets to traverse consecutive locations generated inside Mental's mind that are filled with multiple enemies. In order to proceed, one has to eliminate all of the opponents using different weapons collected on the way, including carbines and rocket launchers. Enemies are quite powerful and feature different behavior models. Among the different types of opponents, there is one type of enemy that splits into smaller enemy units, another one that shoots fireballs, and also there are those that surround the more powerful enemy. Occasionally bosses appear who are much more powerful and resistant to player's attacks than regular enemies. One's task becomes easier if they collect all the different items on the way, such as weapon upgrades, shoes that increase speed, and a magnet that attracts the in-game currency.
The title offers two game modes – the basic one is the single-player, but the players can also enjoy the game in local and online co-op mode.
Tormental is a 3D game with rather simple and angular visuals. The game lacks advanced effects, however that does not matter during the gameplay, as it is fast and requires players to remain focused at all times.
