Flinthook Zips Into Action on April 18th

Tribute Games, indie studio behind modern pixel art classics like Wizorb, Ninja Senki DX, and Mercenary Kings, is ready to unleash its next retro hit Flinthook, a 2D roguelike platformer starring a loot happy space pirate outfitted with a hookshot and a pistol to go along with special slow-mo powers.

Prepare to get your Flinthook on beginning April 18th on PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. (Hey, that’s the same date Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap and Voodoo Vince: Remastered are coming out. That’s going to be a fun day!)

Steal a peek at the new Flinthook gameplay trailer below to get an idea of the hookshotting, time slowing, galaxy saving good time that awaits.
