What is The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile
The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile is a brutal fast-paced action platformer. It’s gruesome, violent and full of action. The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile was originally released in 2011 on Xbox 360. From 12 May, 2017 it’s upgraded version is available on STEAM. The art style is characteristic for Ska Studios. I played their souls-like game Salt and Sanctuary before The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile and the art style is identical. No shame. It’s still unique and remarkable and what’s more important it fits the game styles their making.
Visual effects are necessary for action games, but do you know that feeling when your screen is full of mighty visual effects, which will make you blind for a few seconds in the time you’re fighting a messed-up boss? It happened to me several times but fortunately I didn’t lose because of that. Yeah, fast is fast and Ska Studios means that. The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile can offer you bloodbaths, most famous Kill Bill’s scene at every step, flying limbs, blood fountains, geysers… Nothing for weaker natures.
The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile will fairly enough welcome you with a short tutorial, but that’s the only time for you to get settled. From now on it’s fast ride, baby. But don’t worry every time you learn a new skill a hop up menu will show ya how to use that f*king awesome ability.
Hack & Slash
The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile a legit representative of hack & slash games. It’s that type of game where you can fight all your negative energy away. Turn off your brain and switch it on again in boss fights. All bosses in The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile are messed-up or scary as hell. And those boss combos toward the end? No problem for a vampire! I didn’t play as the Dishwasher though. So I don’t have idea about his abilities.
My point of view
Just grab a gamepad and start the game, enjoy the massacre and ridiculous story, that happens so fast that I wasn’t able to read 50% of the words. But you can always screenshot it and read afterwards.
- Dynamic, fast, action
- Legit hack & slash game
- Cool art work
- Flawless gameplay
- Amazingly messed-up enemies
- Build in minigames
- More types of weapons to choose from
- RPG elements
- Story text goes too fast, I would prefer “click to continue” system
- Sometimes I wasn’t able to see anything because of too much active visual effects (from gun firing, magic skills, combos, blood etc.)
