The Epic Games Store has made an underrated arcade game that first released in 2019 completely free to download for the coming week. Ever since the Epic Games Store was established, new, free titles have been landing on the PC platform every week in perpetuity. And while the quality of these games has often been all over the place, this week’s free offering is one that may be lesser-known, but it could end up being a fan-favorite.
From now until next week on March 31st, the Epic Games Store is giving away Demon’s Tilt for no cost at all. At its core, Demon’s Tilt is a pinball game, although it combines elements of the Shmup and Hack n’ Slash genres as well. While Demon’s Tilt might just look like a standard pinball experience at first, watching gameplay for a prolonged period of time shows just how different this title is. Between the bullet hell gameplay, high score counts, and hectic visuals, Demon’s Tilt could very well be the most intense version of pinball around.

While the gameplay loop of Demon’s Tilt might be enticing on its own, it’s the game’s aesthetic that really sends it over the top. The game’s retro-inspired visuals when combined with the heavy soundtrack really makes this the “Occult Pinball Action” experience that developer WIZNWAR claims it is.
