The game follows the story of Marty, a [[DeepSouth redneck]] and beer-chugging HeavyMetal fan enjoying his beer while watching the game. Suddenly, someone slides a vinyl disc under his door. Dumbfounded, Marty puts it on his gramophone and it starts playing [[{{Backmasking}} demonic backwards speech]] and {{Satan}} himself comes out! He steals Marty's beer and cuts off his arm, but Marty [[ImprovisedWeapon throws the vinyl]] at Satan which chops his arm off. After he leaves, Marty ties Satan's arm to his stump and follows him into a sewer to {{Hell}} on a quest to take back his stolen beer.

Dumbfounded, Marty puts it on his gramophone and it starts playing [[{{Backmasking}} [[{{SdrawkcabSpeech}} demonic backwards speech]] and {{Satan}} himself comes out! He steals Marty's beer and cuts off his arm, but Marty [[ImprovisedWeapon throws the vinyl]] at Satan which chops his arm off. After he leaves, Marty ties Satan's arm to his stump and follows him into a sewer to {{Hell}} on a quest to take back his stolen beer.


Added DiffLines:

* TheAlcoholic: Marty ''really'' likes his beer.
* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Hitting a switch with a fireball prompts Marty to make a [[WardingGestures metalhead sign]] to easily tell the player that they have hit their target.


Added DiffLines:

* BonusStage: Each floor has a bonus stage marked with an asterisk unlocked by collecting eight beer cans on the stage. The secret collectible is replaced by bacon.
* DeepSouth: Marty is a classic redneck: beergut, truck driver cap, a love of sports and [[SirSwearsALot a propensity for swearing]].
* DownloadableContent: ''The Drunk Side of the Moon'' DLC, which adds 33 news levels and 3 new [[{{PowerUp}} powerups]].
* EasterEgg: Several levels contain QR codes which direct to places on the developer's website or to Music/IronMaiden music videos.
* EasyModeMockery: The default difficulty is "Hard". Trying to lower it will prompt {{Satan}} to laugh at the player. The difficulty cannot be changed, however.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The game is all about speedrunning, as each stage has a standard completion time and an Uber Skull time, plus leaderboards.
** The "Spawn Platform" and "[[Teleportation Teleport]]" [[PowerUp powrups]].
* FireAndBrimstoneHell: Most of the floors have this theme, however a couple show a toxic, sewer green version of {{Hell}}.
* FirstPersonGhost: Mary has no legs, bu his demonic arm is clearly visible.
* FirstPersonPerspective: We only see how Marty looks like in cutscenes.
* ForeignLanguageTitle[=/=]GratuitousFrench: "Seum" is slang for "frustration" in French. A strange choice, as the game is not quite NintendoHard.


Added DiffLines:

* IdleAnimation: Marty may start whistling if the player doesn't do anything, and Satan may ask Marty how he's doing.
* ImprovisedWeapon: Marty throws the vinyl at {{Satan}}, managing to chop his arm off.
* MetalHead: Marty is implied to be one.
* TheNewRockAndRoll: [[{{Parody}} Parodied]] in the intro. Backwards metal music ''literally summons {{Satan}}''.


Added DiffLines:

* PlatformGame: A [[FirstPersonPerspective first-person]] 3d platformer focused on speed.
* PowerUp: There are 4 in the standard game and 3 in the [[DownloadableContent DLC]]:
** "Teleport" lets you... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin teleport]].
** "Antigravity" lets you fly.
** "Split" lets you place a point where, if you click the right mouse button again, you will be teleported back.
** "Spawn Platform" is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin self-explanatory]].
** "Roar" (DLC) also lets you fly, but, unlike "Antigravity"'s floaty controls, is a simple point and fly.
** "Rocket" (DLC)
** "Shadow World" (DLC)


Added DiffLines:

* {{Satan}}: The main {{Antagonist}} and BigBad, he taunts Marty throughout the levels if he dies.
->''"MMM... BARBEQUE."''
* SdrawkcabSpeech: The {{Satan}}ic vinyl record in the intro plays backwards speech. It also prompts {{Satan}} himself to appear.
* SlidingScaleOfCollectibleTracking: Each level shows whether you found the beer/bacon. Peaks (the highest point one can go on certain levels, indicated by a flag) and QR secrets are only marked by total number, not even by floor.
* {{Teleportation}}: The "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Teleport]]" PowerUp. It can only be fired three times before you need to hit the ground again.
* ThisIsntHeaven: Late in the game, [[spoiler:Marty comes accross a FluffyCloudHeaven filled with beer. He is estatic, but realizes that it is an illusion and that he is still in {{Hell}}]].
* WardingGestures: The standard rock and metal gesture has a gameplay function: hitting a switch with a fireball prompts Marty to quickly make this gesture.

to:

* AchievementMockery: A couple:
** "RIP" achievement requires you to die 666 times.
** "100 ways to die" requires you to get killed by every type of trap in the game.
* AppendageAssimilation: The game begins with Marty getting invaded by {{Satan}}, who cuts off his arm and steals his beer. In retaliation, Marty cuts off Satan's arm as well, attaches it where the old one was, and then goes after the jerk. Marty has no trouble firing {{Fireballs}} and gesturing with his new hand.
* HeavyMetal: The game's entire soundtrack.
* NumberOfTheBeast: 666 appears hilariously often in the game, from the maximum completion, to a secret level between 66 and 67, in the name of some achievements etc.
* OneHundredPercentCompletion: Completing all secret levels will result in a completion of [[NumberOfTheBeast 666%]].
* RageAgainstTheAuthor: If you keep dying a lot on a single level, Marty may end up yelling "Damn you, Pine Studioooo!".
