Demon Pit on Nintendo Switch. It is time. The years you spent slaughtering demon-kind in the mortal world did little to cleanse your soul. Your sins have been laid bare and you have been judged. You are damned for eternity. The pit awaits! Inspired by the fast-paced FPS games of the 1990s, Demon Pit is an intense arcade-style arena shooter. Armed with a series of ranged weapons and a soul grapple, you must fight and outmanoeuvre endless waves of demons in a constantly changing environment. How long can you survive before they rip your flesh and claim your soul?

Demon Pit has no real objective, you go in play, die and then try to beat your last score. This feels like Edge of Tomorrow, each time you play you survive a little longer and pick up skills. The single room changes as you play, you can grapple across the map.
There is no story here, no little sprite to give you hints, you are in the Demon Pit. Once you start, you have to shoot waves of enemies. You start off with a terrible gun, but as you survive you can grab better weapons.
I wish I could write more about the gameplay, but it is pretty straightforward. You have a health meter and you have to shoot the bad guys.
The graphics remind me of a lot of old-style Quake/Doom games. They are a bit blocky, and a bit retro. The whole thing feels like something from the early 90s.
Performance-wise, it’s not been too bad. When it gets a bit too busy in handheld mode, the framerate can drop. But the controls are the biggest issue, as the port of the movement doesn’t feel right.
Overall, Demon Pit isn’t trying too hard, but it doesn’t have to. This is a jump in and out the game, you don’t have missions or an objective. Finally, please check out our gaming reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
