Sonic the Hedgehog and Streets of Rage are unquestionably legendary SEGA Mega Drive games, but when this author thinks back to the classic console, Crüe Ball is the release that immediately springs to mind. Inspired by glam metal band Motley Crüe, this was an arcade pinball game that defied the rules of the real bar room pastime. And it was brilliant.
Demon’s Tilt, due out on the PlayStation 4 from 28th July, is effectively Crüe Ball for an all-new era. The game has a heavy metal aesthetic and an ear-splitting sawtooth soundtrack, as well as a ton of modes for flipper aficionados. “Prepare to unlock the secrets of the Cathedral’s Dark Ritual and do battle on the leaderboards in Demon’s Tilt,” the PlayStation Blog teases.
