A trip to collect goals between pancakes and demon girls.
That of puzzle game it is one of the oldest genres, but also one of the most loved. In 2020 Helltaker was released, a puzzle game with dating sim components, distributed for free for PC on Steam from the Polish developer Vanripper.
The plot of the game is as simple as it is delusional: we will play the role of a man who has come to hell for the sole purpose of building a harem of demons. With similar premises it's not hard to see why Helltaker was successful: the title relies, in fact, on extremely charismatic female characters with a cartoon style. Since its publication on the Valve store, a very dedicated fandom has come to be built, even willing to delve into the history of the various girls through the comics published on Twitter by the author of the game.
The anniversary of the release recently took place, and with it, new achievements have arrived for you to unlock.
It will be enough to complete the first chapter of the game by solving the riddle and choosing the second option in the dialogue with the demon Pandemonia, so as to convince her to follow the protagonist.
You will need to complete the puzzle of the fourth level without using the key on the map.
During the sixth level it will be necessary to use the “life advice” function. A dialogue will start during which two demons will quarrel, asking the protagonist to choose who to kill of the two. The second option will have to be chosen: suicide.
Also in the sixth chapter, you will have to choose the second option in the dialogue with Azazel. The angel will take the protagonist to heaven, however, causing the game over.
It will be necessary to survive the encounter with Lucifer in the eighth chapter. To do this, you will need to choose the second dialogue option: offer her pancakes, her favorite dessert. (Curiously, the recipe for these pancakes is on sale among the additional contents of the game).
