Flinthook Out Today On PlayStation 4
Tribute Games is ready to release Flinthook on PS4 today! This is fast-paced action-platformer with some roguelike bits thrown in for good measure. Areas are procedurally generated as you go, making each run feel fresh.
Dominique Ferland, game designer at Tribute Games, had this to say:
A lot of games play with different ways to make their hero move vertically, with double jumps, jetpacks, and air-dash mechanics. My favorite has always been the grappling hook, as thereâ€™s a solid connection between the hero and the hook â€” a physical action thatâ€™s easy to grasp. Inspired by many of the hookshots from games Iâ€™ve played through the years, Flinthookâ€™s iconic Quickhook is, in my opinion, the best hookshot ever!
Zip around with your mighty hookshot! Aim freely and toss your giant anchor at golden rings to propel yourself around the levels at high speeds, giving you the agility and swiftness needed to dodge hazards and enemy bullets.
Shoot in 360â€™ through your Blasma Pistol! Take down all sorts of enemies with fresh hot bullets!
Look really cool with slow-motion powers! Slow down time to adjust your aim or pull off a tight stunt – do it often, it recharges real quickly and it makes you at least 200% cooler.
Blast through randomly-assembled pirate spaceships! Each level is special, as ships are procedurally built from hundreds of hand-crafted rooms, modified by various variants, filled with extraordinary treasure and populated by random waves of enemies.
Hunt down the pirate lords of the Cluster Clan! Feed your compass creature to pinpoint the bossesâ€™ location, then take them down and bring your bounty home. Your rivals are no space chumps, make sure youâ€™re ready for the challenge!
Collect rare relics and powerful perk cards! All the treasure you loot builds up your legend – unlock new equippable perks as you level up, buy permanent upgrades in the Black Market, and hoard collectible relics and lore pages!
Uncover some mysterious secrets?! I donâ€™t know, are there secrets in this game? O_O
