A few weeks ago, it was announced that a handful of games published by Dangen Entertainment would be receiving major updates. The first of these, a “Forged in Hell” update for strategy action-platformer Smelter, has just been released.

Smelter’s “Forged in Hell” update is adding a couple of different modes to the game, including a Boss Rush mode whihc lets you fight various bosses in quick succession, and an Action mode which does away with the strategy component of the game, instead focusing solely on the action-platforming.
