NeocoreGames’ Tower Defense Action-RPG Hybrid Deathtrap Out Now on Steam
Be clever, be quick and show no mercy!
Budapest, Hungary – February 4th, 2015 – Today, NeocoreGames announced that Deathtrap, a spin-off title of their The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing series is now available worldwide for $19.99 on Steam with 10% OFF to celebrate the first week of its release.
Deathtrap invites players to venture beyond the veil of this world, where a chain of strongholds were once built to keep the horrors of the void at bay. Now that the monsters are returning from the depths to conquer and kill, players will take direct control of either the Sorceress, the Mercenary or the Marksman and rebuild / improve the ancient traps to stop the monsters before they break through to the everyday world.
Deathtrap features 4 gameplay modes (PvP, Endless, Single Player and Cooperative Campaign), 5 scenarios, 13 different campaign maps on Tiers 1-4, a built-in Map Editor, 3 classes, 25 basic traps, 15 special traps and 40+ enemy types from 3 monster races.
Zoltán ‘Pozs’ Pozsonyi, Producer of Deathtrap said: “I’m very proud of the final game and the fine work the team at NeocoreGames did on Deathtrap. Our goal was to push the tower defense genre forward with a unique gameplay mechanic that allows players to build a deadly maze of traps and towers while controlling a character directly from the traditional top-down view of an action-RPG. We estimate a solid 50+ hours of gameplay and we’d like to encourage the community to keep creating their own custom maps too, we might pick the best and add it as an extra scenario or PvP map later.”
Deathtrap is a Tower Defense game with strong Action-RPG elements, a game of vicious tricks, killing machines, rotating blades and splattering blood.
The clever and brutal tower defense type horror game Deathtrap is one of my most anticipated games of the year. Neocore Games has been kind enough to pass along some information for me to give to you about the game. They’ve moved their early access into co-op mode now, and I’d love to know more form people that are able to play the game. As far as I know, the MAC version is still delayed so yours trul can’t revel in the sadistic madness quite yet.
For some great videos and information, please have a look at their press release below.

Here’s some brand spankin’ new information from one of the bigger and more successful Indie companies around, NeoCore. They brought out one of the most highly anticipated, nearly AAA quality games ‘The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing’ II this year. I was SO disappointed in the way the company handled their botched release of the MAC version, which I, and they still haven’t recovered from. But, on to different things.
Deathtrap looks like a clever take on Tower Defense, and it actually challenges you to be clever in it’s motto, or mantra. That’s a pretty high bar to set by a company that’s known to be pretty clever themselves. Read on for your teaser trailer you faithful followers of all things foolish and fun.

Strange and unfortunate news from the monster hunting world- It seems Neocore games has decided, or has been forced to abandon the release of the game on MAC. I was looking forward to playing and reviewing the newest installment of the game, but woke to find that my review copy for MAC OSx was unplayable yesterday. I reached out to Neocore via their forums on STEAM, their website, as well as through twitter and was referred to support. I was able to get a response from their PR person, Julia Inzsol said she would keep me abreast of any news. As of today, there has been no official announcement about the unplayable “release” on Mac that users were not informed wouldn’t be ready and pre-orders were taken for. Here statement to me is below:
“Actually we still have issues around the Mac build, and we didn’t want to release it until it’s not perfect. We need a little more time to check all the things around the build, so the players can finally enjoy it as we imagined.We are terribly sorry about this and asking for your patience and understanding.We will release a beta from the Mac version tomorrow, and it would be amazing if some of the Mac users could help us testing the game, so we can make it perfect according to your feedback. We are really sorry about it, but we think it’s better this way than we release a game which is unfortunately still have problems.We’ll write a post about this, but now you know that this is the way it is.”
It’s always a bad sign when game reviewers aren’t able to review a game until its release date. In fact, I wasn’t informed that the game wouldn’t work on release day, and there was no announcement that the MAC version wasn’t playable. We’re not sure if this was an oversight by Neocore or something else. We will definitely keep you informed and update as soon as information is available.

We would like to apologize you for the current issue, which is that the Mac build is delayed due to development issues. We will release the build in the close future, and we can provide beta versions as well if they are required by the players. We are extremely sorry and therefore we would like to compensate by gifting all future Van Helsing II DLCs for our Mac users, who preordered the game.
We would like to ask for your patience and understanding until we release the Macintosh version of Van Helsing II, and once again, sorry for the inconvenience that we have caused.
