Hotline Miami


Hotline Miami is the newest title to set the world of indie gaming ablaze. For those of you who have missed out on all the buzz, let me fill you in. Hotline Miami is the first title produced by Dennaton Games, a development house comprised of Jonatan...

Hotline Miami


In the movies we often hear mobsters or burglars recall when a job “went bad”. The moment they refer to is the single instant they couldn't anticipate, the moment when their carefully laid out plans were thrown out the window; Hotline Miami captures...

Hotline Miami is the rare breed of game that feels as smart as it is bloody. It is unabashedly gratuitous, but there’s a context to its mayhem that escapes most ultra-violent operas. There’s really nothing quite like it: its unique blend of tactics,...

Hotline Miami


Greeted by a council of dangerous men in haunting animal masks, you're given a series of warnings. This will not end well. You will be punished for

Although its grim presentation and hearty challenge won’t be for everybody, Hotline Miami is a rare game that articulates its own design thesis not only thoroughly, but with palpable enthusiasm. Underneath its moody graphics, stellar sound design...

Hotline Miami Review


A compellingly insane game that threatens to drive us mad with it.

A fascinating story of absolute insanity; colorful retro graphics; occasional great combos

Punishing difficulty and unfair randomization; bad stealth level and boss fights; crashes

To each his own -- I appreciated the randomness of guard patrols. Even though it frequently killed me, I appreciate a game that keeps me on my toes. (That stealth level though... ugh.) Have you found Hotline Miami's random difficulty to be rewarding or...

Hotline Miami Review


Hotline Miami is an intoxicating celebration of violence that will have you pounding the restart button for more.

Responsive controls let you play recklessly ; Outstanding soundtrack ; Entrancing visual design ; Levels are tough but fair ; Gloriously violent

Boss battles can be frustrating ; No gamepad support

If you choose to go in with guns blazing, there are lots of shotguns, automatic rifles, machine guns, and silenced pistols on offer. Gunshots attract the attention of nearby enemies, who quickly come to investigate the disturbance. And while you often...

Hotline Miami Review


Indie games on PC have had a big boost in the last year, and it seems like that's happening for multiple reasons: people are getting sick of $60 AAA blockbusters, Steam is making it easier to bring indie games to their service, and these Humble...

Hotline Miami is difficult and violent, but it's not aggravating when you lose, and it's very rewarding when you win. The art style and crazy theme are like almost nothing you've seen in games before, and the simple but frantic action will keep you...

The coolest possible way to kiss your conscience goodbye

A remarkable achievement in flow and tone, Hotline Miami is a murderous marvel and without a doubt one of 2012's most essential videogames.

Brilliantly executed, sublimely creative and sadistic to the extreme.

Hotline Miami is brilliantly executed, sublimely creative and sadistic to the extreme. Not to mention chock full of surprises and bares a superb ability to keep you on your toes. Some questionable elements aside, hearts will race playing this game....

Hotline Miami (Windows)


Miami is nice. So I'll say it thrice.

This game, like most small dev-team games is not perfect though. For a start it’s made on Game Maker which can be a buggy bit of kit at the best of times as I know all too well myself. Many of the initial technical glitches have now been patched out...
