The Lord of Death hits the bottle hard on the Ragnarok of all benders and hell breaks loose- literally. Enter the unholy children of Gunnheim: gun-toting, skull-crushing Viking warriors born and bred for battle, summoned to restore the balance. Gunnheim is a 1-4 player top down shooter inspired by Viking mythology and the golden era of couch co-op gaming.
In Gunnheim, you’re bringing the term berserker to a whole new level, saving the day by dishing out carnage of hellish proportions. Armed to the teeth with all manner of modern weaponry, fight your way through hordes of hellspawn with your brothers and sisters at your side, survive epic boss fights against the biggest and baddest of the devil’s children, and watch with maniacal glee as your enemies are turned to bloody piles of pulp, fangs and horns. Put your goggles on, it’s about to get really, really messy.
With a cutting sense of humor, Gunnheim brings fast paced action, superior low-poly graphics, and more gore than you can imagine to this classic genre.
Collect an arsenal of epic weapons, ranging from mini guns to atomic bombs
Use co-op mode to team up with friends and accomplish your goal of knocking some sense into the devil, with room for some wickedly delicious friendly fire kills along the way
Bask in the glory of superior low-poly graphics and intense gore
No pixel art. No puzzles – And most importantly No zombies
What is there not to love about vikings, giant guns, and indiscriminate slaughter and gore? Gunnheim brings all that in oodles and then throws in a hand grenade of co-op action. Gunnheim takes cues from other games in this crowded genre, from Gauntlet, to FORCED. You play across many different levels and environments, using power ups, innate powers and firing non-stop at the hordes of angry enemies trying to chew your face off. After completing so many levels you are greeted by a big nasty boss who more then likely is going to stomp you into dust. While Gunnheim can be enjoyed by itself as a single-player game, it shines most when you take advantage of the up to 4 player Co-op. The game scales its difficulty and challenge based on the number of players, adding even more viking chaos and explosions. The game does have polish for an Early Access title, the graphics, controls, and music are all well done. However, there is still plenty of work to be done here. Balancing, repeating content, and more gameplay elements are all things that need to be worked on before final release. It's a fun game and very enjoyable with your friends, just the single-player mode needs a bit more work in my opinion. So get ready, grab your viking hat, your bazooka and get to kick some monster ♥♥♥♥!
