Our Score: 10/10
In Demon Turf join Beebz in her ambitious goal of taking over the Demon Turfs and becoming the Demon Queen herself! Jump, spin and punch your way across the turfs with unique mechanics like momentum-driven combat and self-placed checkpoints.
The Demon World is inhabited by all kinds of nasties. Most of them lumped into gangs battling for dominion, each led by its own head honcho. Yet even these bad dudes are no match for the Demon King himself! Instead, the task falls to Beebz, a young demon barely a thousand years old, who decides it’s time for her to kick every turf leader’s butt and become the Demon Queen herself.
What is Demon Turf
Demon Turf features a unique aesthetic combining the expressiveness of 2D illustrations with the depth and sense of exploration 3D environments can offer! Furthermore, it features a world chock-full of humor and style. From the music accompanied by the protagonist’s rapping to the colorful characters inhabiting the world!
Another interesting part of Demon Turf is its unique take on progression. Take a victory lap and explore previously beaten levels to discover their liberated state, with plenty of mechanical and environmental changes to uncover. Or take some time off in the hub town taking on sidequests and other distinct challenges instead.
Pull off some clever platforming combinations or get physical with a special physics-driven combat system that ramps up the chaos and fun. Push, pull and spin your enemies out of your way.
Demon Turf also has a different take on checkpoints, freeing the player to place them wherever they want. Show off without them for a perfect run, or place one in preparation for a challenging section. The choice is yours. This way you can set the difficulty of the game by yourself.
Additionally, there are unique challenges like the “Photo Hunt” mode where you’re tasked to take pictures of hidden locations & surprising moments! Or simply take pictures and selfies for fun and share them across all social media!
For gameplay, there’s also an awesome collection of purchasable mods that can be combined in clever ways to completely change your playstyle! Or you could buy some dyes & pets instead, the world’s your oyster!
Look and Feel
Demon Turf is a 3D platformer that features 2D visuals in a 3D environment. This isn’t an easy feat and is very hard to get right. But Demon Turf nails this and so much more. The world is incredible looking with great use of colors and a unique art style.
The depth of field and other post-processing effects that accompany the art style really push the visuals from good to great. And because of this, the visuals are a treat to the eyes. I’ve never seen a game come out of nowhere and just nail this aesthetic so perfectly.
The soundtrack that accompanies you on your platforming journey is quite well made and does a great job of keeping you engrossed and immersed.
Demon Turf is a marvelous unique platformer that will leave you spellbound with its mix of 2D and 3D and phenomenal platforming controls. Demon Turf is a game that absolutely deserves your attention and playtime.
