Ink dev's ball-kicking platformer HackyZack released

Jumping is so easy, even a hedgehog can do it. Jumping around an obstacle course while also kicking a ball is tricker. But it does look looks great fun in HackyZack [official site], a platformer about dashing and wall-jumping around while kicking a ball to hit points and reach a goal across increasingly complex levels. Wait, hang on, I’ve got this: Super Meat Ball. Kick-upforce. BBBBBB. No? Here, have a look in this trailer:

That’s nice, that.

Developers Spaceboy Games say HackyZack has over 100 levels to kick through, and I’m seeing some clever tricks with different types of ball. I look forward to exploring some of those balltricks when I can kick my to-do list into shape. It’s got unlockable characters and time trial challenge levels too.

You might remember Spaceboy co-founder Zack Bell for Ink, his splat-happy 2015 platformer where players can’t see even levels until they paint them by moving (and dying).

HackyZack is £6.29/8,99€/$8.99 on Steam and, in Britbucks at least, a little more on the Humble Store. That is a bit funny considering HackyZack is one of the first ‘Presented by Humble Bundle’ games, the store’s own publishing label. Hey ho!
