# Hellish Quart Complete Move List Guide

19.02.2021 0 By Butcher79You are playing Hellish Quart: if you are looking for a list of game moves, then we have it. Here’s everything you need to know!

**INTRODUCTION**

All button presses are shown as if you are using an XBox controller, or at least one with the same buttons, like the Logitech gamepad I use. They are also shown as if you are Player 1 on the left side of the screen.

I have highlighted the moves that I found to be most useful.

Add any suggestions you might have in the comments.
