Defeated in battle, the King of Hell is stripped of his powers and banished from his throne. Burned to a meager corpse, the dethroned king uses the last of his strength to take command of a corps of weak-minded goblins. He commands this ragtag army of bloodthirsty goblins as he fights through hell to reclaim his throne, destroying his enemies and looting their corpses for equipment along the way.
Army Corps of Hell on PlayStation Vita Features:
- Command massive goblin armies – Annihilate your enemies by controlling an army of 100 goblin soldiers with assorted classes and abilities. Restore the King of Hell’s control, empower his army to take on all comers, and reclaim his place as the ruler of the underworld!
- Unleash the PlayStation Vita! – Use the rear touch pad to command your goblins to play instruments, each activating special properties. Revive your hero, rejuvenate your soldiers and inspire your army to increase their strength! Skillful play will be rewarded with significant benefits and a greater edge against the demon horde.
- Reap the spoils of war to outfit your corps – Combine materials dropped by fallen foes to create new equipment for your troops. Customize your corps’ equipment and items to change the look and upgrade the abilities of your goblin soldiers.
- Team up with friends and increase the challenge – Play with up to four players via ad-hoc multiplayer and face tougher bosses to acquire rare items!
What is your idea of hell though? Being forced to watch an entire series of some reality show back-to-back? Or, worse still, being stuck on public transport without having your shiny, new PS Vita clasped in between your sweaty palms? Perish the thought. In the case of Army Corps, it's actually becoming the former King of Hades; you play the fallen (even further) ex-lord of hell, erm, hellbent on reclaiming his right to rule over the underworld.
This means classic Pikmin-style gameplay spliced with the goblins riffed from the hilarious Overlord series. Set on a series of islands, you fight treacherous hordes of evil by unleashing your armies of goblins on them - use solider goblins to pile in en-masse, spearmen to launch distance attacks and magi, who can spew all manner of foe-melting projectiles from their deformed fingertips.
Once carved up, loot the corpses and upgrade your goblins' powers with an RPG-lite spot of alchemy. Once in a while, expect to face off some devilishly imaginative boss types where the strategic element of the game comes to the fore, as you fight to figure out how to remove, say, the intestines of giant worms using the most violent means possible.
Accompanying this murderous spree is a death metal soundtrack that shows what stern stuff the PS Vita's speakers are made of. Played at raise-the-dead volumes, the screeching and screaming of guitars provides a perfect backing track to the onscreen slaughter; the latter which can be enjoyed with up to three other players via ad-hoc multiplayer.
If you're looking for a polite introduction to the delights of PlayStation Vita gaming, then you should look elsewhere. But if you're after a fast-paced, death-dealing, face-caving demon-fest with an ear-drum popping soundtrack, then Army Corps Of Hell carves up the competition.

Attention PlayStation Vita owners! Consider putting the lush, sun-kissed jungles of Uncharted: Golden Abyss down for a week; instead plunge headfirst into Hades in Army Corps Of Hell!…
