To those who aren't into heavy metal music, it can come across as tiresomely predictable, outdated, repetitive, and vaguely ridiculous.
Such terms can be used just as readily to describe Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes.
And they apply regardless of your gaming or musical tastes.
This is a hybrid of endless-runner and scrolling beat-'em-up elements in a similar vein to Punch Quest and God of Blades. Indeed, with its knowing winks at an esoteric strand of rock music, the comparison with White Whale's ode to prog rock is fitting.
A truly dumb endless-runner with a gimmicky heavy metal theme and sluggish, limited gameplay
