Is it Death or Treat you are after?

-

death or treat

We’re not sure it’s much of a decision really, but Death or Treat may not be exactly what it seems. 

Available right now on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC, Death or Treat certainly comes with some Ori vibes and Hollow Knight ideals. But this is a 2D action roguelite, a hack and slasher, a gorgeous drop of visual joy. 

It’s priced at £19.99 from the Xbox Store as Perp Games look to bring a spooky tale to the console and PC masses. Now, when we say masses, we mean those on new-gen consoles only, as currently there is no love for those on Xbox One or PlayStation 4. That new-gen exclusivity though does mean Perp get to push the boat out a little bit more. 

And push that boat they seemingly have done as Death or Treat is most definitely looking like verging into the latter. With a glorious handpainted world to explore, combat styles to work with, Death or Treat allows you the chance to play as Scary, the owner of the leader of Halloween candies, Ghost Mart. However, when the Halloween spirit goes missing and Ghost Mart is on the verge of collapse, Scary heads out to put matters right, taking down FaceBoo, DarkChat, DevilTube and RipTok – yes, we know what you’re thinking. 

With magic spells ready to be crafted, new weapons up for use and combat an absolutely fundamental part of how Death or Treat plays, your time helping Scary should well be a good one. We’ll let you know if it all works out well in our full review of Death or Treat on Xbox Series X|S. 

Until that time, a download can be grabbed from the Xbox Store, playable on Xbox Series X|S. You’ll find Death or Treat on PS5 and PC too, whilst PS4 and Switch versions are promised. 

Game Description:

Recently, the Halloween spirit is missing and GhostMart may be on the brink of bankruptcy. Clark Fackerberg, founder of FaceBoo! has started to distribute Storyum: a drug that absorbs the will and hope for Halloween from the inhabitants of HallowTown. Now, with the purpose of restoring the spirit of Halloween and his trade, Scary must destroy FaceBoo! and its 3 divisions; Darkchat, Deviltube and RipTok “Death or Treat” is a 2D action-roguelite and hack & slash, with handpainted environments and traditional animation. Explore all the worlds and defeat hordes of enemies using different weapons and skills. You will play as Scary, the owner of Ghost Mart, leader in manufacturing candies for Halloween. Discover huge worlds, explore new maps and try to survive the hordes of enemies. It’s not an easy task, every world is even more tricky than the other. Starting with Darkchat, Riptok, Deviltube, and last but not least FaceBoo!, the ultimate epic frontier. Combat is one of the fundamental pillars of Death or Treat. Choose your favorite weapon style (fast, heavy or ranged) and face a real horde of enemies in the purest hack’n slash style: fly through the air and attack the crowd with force, move nimbly and look for their weak point. Each one of the stores that you will find in HallowTown can provide different profit for your enterprise. You can create new weapons at Frank’s Forge, or buy healing potions at DetoxBucks. Our vampire shopkeeper, Joe Bite Them, will help you get new empty slots for your inventory, and the Pumpkin guys will teach you how to craft magic spells. Finally, go to Pumpkin© to trade your ingredients for more candies!

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
