The player explores a forgotten island full of savage creatures and confronts them in real-time action combat where the right strategy is your most powerful weapon. Always look out for new artifacts that will aid you in uncovering the mysteries of that place. They are locked away in deadly dungeons that will not only test your might but also your wits.

Hell Gates 1 was created for an international RPG Maker contest. One of the rules in that contest stated that not a single word is allowed to be used in the games. Solid knowledge of RPG mechanics in general is recommended because you will have to figure out most of it on your own. (Manual is included in the game folder)

Hell Gates 2 Version 1.6 is now available on rpgmaker.net!

Well it took a lot of time but the latest version of Hell Gates 2 is finally here! It contains a full English translation of chapter 1 of Hell Gates 2. This means you can experience the first 6 hours of this grand adventure. This includes the famous Rock Beetle Grotto, the first of many dungeons where Hell Gates 2 flexes its creative muscles.

Once you completed chapter 1, the game remains playable but the language reverts back to German. The menus and systems are fully translated though, even the quest log which gives you hints on where to go next. Theoretically you could still beat the game but you would miss out on the story.

Anyways, without further ado:
Check out the Hell Gates 2 Game Page here on rpgmaker.net!

Well, I took a shot this game, but I couldn't find enough draw to push myself after I got my first game over.
Hi Freank,

nice to see you again.I updated the download links on your page to the latest versions.

Have a nice weekend.
Got any Dexreth amulets?
Hey Pad!
I've played the new version of this game to completion, and sent you a PM with some feedback. I definitely noticed the improvements, and I'm planning to adjust my review accordingly.

See you soon!
PLayed through hell gates 1 now. I liked the game, though i found 2 problems one was in crystall palace when i went left where it was shaking and there were stone golems i went on and met a mini boss going up stairs which was a dark knight with red eyes i belive casted the first light spell and got some invalid parameter or something and the game crashed. Second in ice caverns i beated the boss there but went later back for the final chest i missed which was in a violet chest or something and i simply couldn't get back out since the way was blocked for going back or the teleporter i couldn't reach somehow with all options pushing the stone on ice which was just before the boss so maybe you could do something about this?
Final boss at level 45 i noticed i could only cast light once and the numbers for damage were shown but then it was greyed out i could still cast it but it didn't show if i did any damage.
Anyway i didn't get every weapon armor ring ingame, but i wonder one thing what was that mask protecting that armor where there were zombies that could teleport you away.Which was on the same area that could transport you to the final boss dungeon which was the armor that needed the mask,but that different armor didn't activate anything.
Anyway seen both ending not sure if the phase 3 under level 45 boss was working since i quickly got the ending without even needing to fight. I remember seing red lights in phase 3 but it just went to the end of game. I reached 88%
The game was pretty understandable with pictures.
hello, just played the game and i have a question.

what does this used for? and how do i get pass through the blue will-o'-the-wisp on the room before this? (which i assume unlocks the path to the purple book).
thanks in advance!

EDIT: i also can't seem to find the fifth and last chicken. can you help me in locating it?

EDIT2: found them, although i still haven't figured out what does the image mean.
Hello aquatorrent,

the numbers show you in which order you have to active the switches in the other room.
How many chapters does hell gates 2 have again? I did play the german version and found it a wonderfull game back in the day.
There was an introduction, 4 main chapters and a secret chapter (kind of endgame, true ending).

Thank you for the kind words :) That was back in the days on rpg-atelier.net
Yes i still visit rpg-atelier.
Also the translation to english will take quite a while i presume. Would love to share it with some friends since many don't know german.
Also is there something wrong with this game page? I know it was supposed to be on the first page after posting a comment. But then i checked and it's only on the first place after a comment and then i can't find it anymore when it's not on first place going through several pages of full games list.
Might be a bug on the site.
Also the wiki of hell gates 1 has version 1.14 instead of 1.15 written?
Yeah the translation takes an overwhelming amount of time. I will write more about it in the following days. For the moment, I am happy to tell that Hell Gates 2 was accepted by rpgmaker.net and is now available for download.

Here is the Hell Gates 2 Page

Thanks for noticing that the latest version of Hell Gates was missing form the Wiki. I added it today. About your bug with the game page, I donĀ“t know whats going on there, maybe the game just has less priority over the older, more established ones?
