Project Warlock is a game that most people would not even know that this game exists. In this article, I will answer a bunch of questions about the game, but I do have to say beforehand, that this game is definitely worth it. I will explain why later. If you enjoy old-school games, then this game is worth looking into. Here are some questions about the game:\n\n\n\nTable Of ContentsIs there a story to the game?Is combat fun?How long is the game?How are the mechanics?Is it worth it?\n\n\n\nRelated: Is Detroit: Become Human Worth It?\n\n\n\nIs there a story to the game?\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThere is not really a story to the game other than a few paragraphs whenever you beat an episode. Project Warlock\u00a0takes inspiration from classic \u201890s shooters such as\u00a0Blood,\u00a0Doom,\u00a0and\u00a0Heretic. The player explores the progression of non-linear\u00a0levels\u00a0while battling varied enemies and bosses. In order to survive to the exit, the player must seek out keys, power-ups, loot, weapons, and ammo; some of which are hidden in secret areas. Each level consists of one to four short stages. Levels are grouped into episodes, with the levels in each episode sharing a common theme.\n\n\n\nProject Warlock\u00a0adds light\u00a0role-playing\u00a0elements to the classic first-person shooter formula. The protagonist, an unnamed\u00a0warlock, can wield both conventional weapons and\u00a0magical spells. After completing each level, the player returns to the warlock's workshop where upgrade points and experience points collected in each level may be used to purchase new spells, weapon upgrades, and player perks such as increased health points.\n\n\n\nIs combat fun?\n\n\n\nThere are a ton of weapons to find and use in the game, and as you progress, you can upgrade each one once to be one of two upgrades the game gives you. Killing the enemies is what makes the game though, because not only can you move up and down not like the older games, you can also use your surroundings to your own advantage. \n\n\n\nThe combat is a good mix between old-school Doom games and old-school Wolfenstein games. The developers did a great job with how the weapons fire and the bloodiness of a pixel game are actually pretty violent. I love it when a team takes something that is not supposed to be something and totally turns it around for the better.\n\n\n\nHow long is the game?\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIt is a short game, but it does have some replayability. It took me about 7 hours to beat all the levels, and I didn't even find all of the secrets in the game. There are soo many enemies and ways to beat the levels, and that is what makes it a fun game. If you enjoy games similar to the old-school games, then you might want to look into this one because it is definitely worth your time.\n\n\n\nHow are the mechanics?\n\n\n\nThe workshop is also used to save the player's progress between sessions. The game does not allow\u00a0quicksaves. Each level must be completed in its entirety for progress to be saved upon return to the workshop.\u00a0Project Warlock\u00a0also features an arcade-style\u00a0life\u00a0system. The player has a limited number of lives, and running out will send the player back to the beginning of the current episode or, on the hardest difficulty, back to the beginning of the game.\n\n\n\nIs it worth it?\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nI would say this game is definitely worth it. Not only is it a really fun game, but it is also really cheap too. The max you need to pay for this game is $12, but I got it on sale for $4. Look around and wait for deals if you want to but I would say the max price is still a great deal for this game. If you like the old-school shooters, then this is a must-have for your library. Just look into it, you won't regret it.
