Looting and killing for hours on end has been a staple in our gaming history for years on end, but never has it been so funny. An evil item known simply as The Artifact has been stolen by the evil Lord Von Prong and his evil henchmen, and it up DeathSpank, The Hero of the Downtrodden, to redeem The Artifact, and rid the world from evil once and for all.
DeathSpank can equip up to four weapons at once and the four face buttons on the controller attack with the different weapons. Special abilities can be unlocked throughout the game by equipping certain weapon types together, and attacking with both weapons together at once when the justice meter is full as well. Speaking of special attacks, items that can be picked up and equipped to the D-pad, for quick use, can be devastating, and one can even rain down a storm of fire from above devastating enemies all around. Potions and food to restore HP, and to negate status effects are found in abundance, but food restores HP over a short time period, and using in the heat of battle can be result in DeathSpank ending up spanked himself.
