Ironkraft: Road to Hell download is a side-scroll action game that could be described as a post-apocalyptic engraver with a car in the lead role. Production is the first original project of Hungarian Invoker Studios, whose members have collaborated over 15 years on such titles as Ryse: Son of Rome, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing trilogy, and even the native Witcher 2.
The plot of the game is set in a crazy, alternative reality of the Second World War, in which, apart from the Nazis, the Earth was seized by zombies and aliens. Humanity lives in closed colonies, whose main problem is the safe transport of resources. No one can feel safe on the roads. The exception is the so-called Roadtraders, who provide their services in specially modified and armed cars. In one of them, named Chris R. Petrol, the players are playing.
The basic "working tool" of our hero is a vehicle adapted to the toughest tasks, called The Annihilator. It is fully customizable, and during the game we can equip it with a mass of additional gadgets, ranging from different types of horns to a whole range of deadly weapons used to exterminate Nazis, aliens, zombies and anyone who stands in the way of us. In the arsenal there are a number of totally twisted inventions, such as the prototype super-secret Nazi weapons Kitty Cannon and Sauerkraut Sprayer.
The action of the game is shown on the side, just like in classic bravadoes or platformers. Fun comes down to counting the next stages, in which a lot of varied challenges await us. The goal in itself is to fill up the hero's purse, and there are several ways to do that. In addition to the traditional orders for various cargoes, we can also infiltrate secret bunkers, search for hidden treasures and take part in crazy bonus stages. Of course, we are disturbed by various obstacles on the ground and a host of enemies, with whom we deal in a rather brutal way.
For a typical arcade production, Ironkraft: Road to Hell download boasts a nice 2.5 D audio-visual frame. The backgrounds are impressive in quality and detail, and the gameplay is accompanied by a mass of explosions and special effects. Considerable emphasis was also placed on the physical engine and realistic behaviour of the vehicle in various off-road conditions. The cherry on the cake is made up of easter-eggs referring to almost every field of contemporary pop culture.
