    a hell of a time down here

    In this game video: https://youtu.be/m4BTJxjI63g?t=14

    When the player chooses to join the Devil's team, the Devil says, 'You're mine now! And we're gonna have a hell of a time down here...!!'

    What does 'we're gonna have a hell of a time down here' mean?

    What does 'down here' mean? Does it mean 'here' in a emphasized way?

    No. Heaven is traditionally thought of as up, perhaps in the sky, while hell has the connotation of down in some world below.

    'Hell of a time' can also mean to have difficulty accomplishing something.

    I'm having a hell of a time changing my car's oil.
