Probably bent some valves, you can either boroscope the cylinders to look for impact damage on pistons or put a belt on it and see if it runs ok. Sometimes you get lucky.

The 2006(?) to 2011 Accent series has an interference engine, which means the valves get bent when the timing belt breaks. The Accent belt needs to be changed every 60,000 miles. I risked changing my belt, by extending to 75,000 miles, but like I said, it is a risk.
