Platform shooter Mercenary Kings calls in free reinforcements next month

Even if you don't own one of Nintendo's new hybrid handheld/home consoles, the Switch's very existence has given a few studios a solid excuse to go back and revisit their earlier titles, polishing them up for a re-release on the new platform. While not all of these trickle back to the PC (I'm looking at you, Cave Story... longingly), sometimes we get the benefit of…

Roguelikelike platformer Flinthook swings out

Grappling hooks are right up there with strafe-jumping, skateboarding, and swimming on The Official List Of Cool Ways To Move so yes, absolutely let's peek at Flinthook [official site]. The platformer stars a space pirate who swings through procedurally-generated spaceships, blasting enemies, bopping bosses, and plundering booty. Those space pirates really know how to live! "But Alice," you wonder, "why do you taunt me so…

Curses ‘N Chaos Revealed By Mercenary Kings Devs

Now, however, our fortunes have flipped, as Tribute's next game - the marvelous looking, equally throwback-y Mercenary Kings - is only coming to PC. At least, for now. It's a co-op-friendly megaton…

Breaking Out: Wizorb Bounces Onto Steam

Breakout games with a plot and monsters should appear more frequently, as should pinball games of the same sort. Wizorb is a neat take on That Sort Of Thing, with world that needs to be rebuilt by the player's bearded wizard. He collects the money to do this by juggling balls with his wand, bashing bricks and beasties alike. There are spells that help with…

Ball-To-Brick: Wizorb

Having nothing to do with Wizball or Wizkid, the latter of which I remember as one of the truly surreal games of my formative years, Wizorb is an Arkanoid style game with NES-styled graphics and a basic JRPG backdrop. It's been out on the indie segment of Xbox Live for a while, where I've played and enjoyed it, so I'm glad to see the PC…
