Hellraid: The Escape, a prologue-style app designed to whet the appetites of gamers planning on taking the “Hellraid” PC and console game for a spin, is set to launch for iOS on July 10, according to its creators.
Developed by Techland and Shortbreak Studios, Hellraid: The Escape promises iOS gamers “console quality” graphics and an immersive puzzler-style mode of gameplay.
PocketGamer explains that “it tasks you with escaping a magic prison using only your wit and cunning,” yet notes that after taking a prerelease version of Hellraid: The Escape for a spin, the concept wasn’t all that impressive. “It was too dark, too simple, and way too familiar,” the website adds.
The promising news is that Hellraid: The Escape was actually delayed last month, and its launch was pushed back to July; it could be that drastic alterations are being made to the application in order to tackle some of these criticisms.
