DEVOUR review

All trademarks belong to their respective owners.


Devour is an action-horror game that will allow you to experience the thrill of the chase in an entirely new way. You will be able to track down and capture prey in a wholly new and immersive way, using your mobile device as your only tool. At the same time, you are forced to save yourself from a cult leader during the game, who will seek to take you literally to hell. Running, hiding, shouting: All this will accompany you from the first to the last minute of the game.

Oh, Creepy New World

According to the plot, Anna, the leader of the demonic cult "Guardians of Azazel," performed a forbidden ritual, after which the demon-goat possessed her. The player's task is to find totems and remove the curse by burning sacrificial animals. The British indie studio Straight Back Games offers four maps that provide different challenges during the game. You have to fight against the main demon and many smaller enemies. The further into the game, the more nimble they become, so watch out!

Choosing the free Japanese-style map The Inn, you will find yourself among demonic spiders hunting you, which you have to neutralize. If your tolerance for these creepy crawlies is at an all-time low, you might use Arachnophobia mode. Are you still scared? Enlist the help of up to three friends and overcome your fears together.

To keep players interested, Devour released other exciting updates. The game has a new progression system that includes bonuses, ritual tokens, and ranks. The developers didn’t forget about the new costumes. The Halloween 2022 updates introduced a new animal system and themed clothing. In particular, you might get a cultist's or a pumpkin robe, which you can wear for a whole year.

Realistic Experience

Devour utilizes your device's GPS and camera to create a realistic hunting experience that will make you feel right in the middle of the action. You can see your prey in real-time and use your mobile device to track their movements and plan your attack. The game is played from a top-down perspective, and the player controls their character by swiping in the direction they wish to travel. The game ends when the player either reaches the top of the leaderboard or is eliminated.

Attack, Jump, and Destroy Enemies With UV Flashlight

The controls in the mobile game Devour are responsive and easy to use:

  • A virtual joystick on the left side of the screen controls your character's movement;
  • There are buttons for attacking, jumping, and using special abilities on the right side of the screen; 
  • A UV flashlight is among the aids that can come in handy. You will unlikely defeat the main enemy only with it, but it neutralizes small enemies. Unfortunately, the flashlight needs charging.

The game's graphics perfectly work out in every detail and correspond to its genre. A dark and spooky world invites everyone who is not afraid of closed doors and what hides behind them into its arms.

Verdict: We Are Ready to Win! And You?

The Devour mobile game is highly replayable and is constantly improving thanks to artificial intelligence. Some processes can be repeated at times, but objects and creatures can appear randomly out of nowhere, providing a unique gaming experience. For example, players might try to beat their previous score or time or compete with friends to see who can get the highest score. There is also a leaderboard that players can compete on to see who is the best at the game.

The mobile game Devour has a pretty conclusive ending; you either win or die. There's not much room for interpretation or guessing, which is reassuring. Unfortunately, the game is also relatively short, so there's not much time to get too attached to any characters. 

So, what are you waiting for? Download Devour today and start tracking down your prey!
