Review: Unholy Heights (DarkZero)

"Unholy Heights is a 2D game that perfectly blends the freedom of an indie game with the notorious creativity of Japanese developers. The basic concept is simply wonderful and is backed up with fun, refreshing gameplay. The Devil (a short middle-aged balding man with glasses and a moustache) spends his life-savings on the apartment block of his dreams but is constantly being bothered by ‘heroes’ whose missions are to destroy the ultimate evil. However, The Devil is no idiot and decides to rent his newly purchased property to monsters that will serve and protect him, transforming the mighty Devil into a desperate landlord. Using his army of tenants, The Devil aims to take over the world in retaliation for his harassment, which is where the game begins and also receives it’s tagline “The heroes want a war? We’ll give ‘em a war!”. The gameplay is likely unfamiliar to anything you’ve played before, mixing simple tower defence strategies with what many people are calling an ‘Apartment Management Simulator’, which is fairly accurate. It seems after a little research that ‘Apartment Management Simulator’ is indeed some kind of niche gaming sub-genre; thought it was completely new to me and even though it didn’t sound very appealing, I really enjoyed playing even after the uniqueness wore off." (PC, Unholy Heights) 7/10
