Critic Reviews for Flinthook

A satisfying, moreish take on the roguelike formula, and one that's most likely to appeal to genre naysayers.

Breathless action combines with perfect pixel art in a game of real character and delight.

Building up your stats and skillset between runs is a great reason to keep playing, though the lack of content may leave anyone not interested in high scores wanting

Flinthook is a fine video game that sunk its hooks into me with easy to pick up and play gameplay, a catchy soundtrack, and cute characters. It's easily a recommendable rogue-lite for any fans of the genre or platformers in general. Just don't expect the game to anchor you to your seat unless you're the kind of person that needs to uncover every piece of treasure possible. Even if you aren't, Flinthook is a dandy game, in space.

It's an odd complaint, but Flinthook really does feel like a high-calibre platformer trapped within the confines of a popular genre. It's a blast to play and I don't even mind just how punishing it can get at times, but the interest wains as soon as death occurred. It took me straight out of the zone when playing and when the game doesn't have much to it beyond the gameplay, it's a bit of a downer. The foundations are there, but really the curtains don't match the décor.

Colorful, cheerful and fun, Flinthook is not only a joy to look at, but above all also a blast to play. Too bad for its uncompromising difficulty and its poor balancing, that prevent this roguelike-platformer from becoming the next cult classic on the indie scene.

Flinthook would have been a much better game with handcrafted levels as opposed to being a roguelite and one that needs some tweaking visually.

Zipping around levels with your hookshot and using your various power-ups to navigate some of the tough scenarios that the game throws at you is rewarding. If Roguelikes are your thing, but you're not looking for something that's too taxing Flinthook is worth a look.
