Hotline Miami is a as-gory-as-pixels-can-be high-octane action game set in alternative 1989 Miami. The top-down stealth shooter mixes lead pipe or katana-driven close combat and intense semi-automatic or shotgun-pumped gunplay.
The game is extremely brutal and unforgiving; both in terms of what the masked antagonist is doing on screen and difficulty level. Make one mistake and it’s your brain on the wall. Make no mistake and the satisfaction from completing yet another level is huge. Rarely you find a game that packs so much heat and delivers so much joy.
Dozens of weapons, battles with Miami’s underground bosses, animal masks, neon corridors, pumping soundtrack, and fantastic visual style–all that and more in Hotline Miami, available for pre-order for only $8.99 until October 23 at 9:59 AM GMT.
