Agony is game which takes the fun and fears out of Hell and throws you into the hellish twisted world of its own making. Every part of the game is home to unimaginable horror but in the best possible way. Sadly, this game is also pretty hellish to play.
The game starts as you are a new resident of the underworld that wakes up at the gates of hell with the usual lack of memory. Instead of being sentenced to the usual torment for all of eternity, you are able to roam the corridors of Hell and look for an angel of hell called the Red Goddess who is the only one who can help you regain your lost memories. From here the journey begins as you dive into the survival game, like others there’s no combat.
Hell is a massive achievement in this game as it looks dreadful in a good sort of way but on the other hand extremely disorientating. The floor is made from the rotting flesh of humans and the walls are decorated with the mangled still alive naked corpses of other tormented souls. It’s problem though is navigating it becomes hard as the maze-like design does not help with the survival elements of making sense which way you need to go next.
Enemies, on the other hand, are not as well design and stand out because of it. Female demons are just naked for the sake of being naked and have sharp teeth or claws with everything on show for all of Hell to see. The same can be said for the Red Goddess who is also dressed in pretty much nothing with her bits out in a gruesome display of what you believe is genitalia.
