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

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

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.

If the wave of Roguelikes were to break today and nothing of note were to arrive in 2017, Flinthook alone would still make it a pretty good year for the genre.

While some may dismiss Flinthook initially, the game will sink its hooks into you if you give it a chance. The controls are sharp, the progression is satisfying, and the vibrant and unique art style will keep you smiling along the way.

Fun is a great describing word for Flinthook. It's fun to play, it's fun to look at, and it's fun to explore.

Make no mistake about it - Flinthook is a really well crafted, charming and fun experience. To a certain extent, however, it feels impeded by the constraints of its genre. It is one of tightest action platformers and addictive rogue likes around, but due to the randomly generated levels, you will encounter the odd frustrating spike in difficulty or structurally very similar areas in close proximity. These complaints are reduced to niggles though due to its charm, personality and action packed gameplay. This trek across the galaxy is sometimes a tough and repetitive one, but it's also incredibly enjoyable.

Flinthook is beautiful, balanced retro platformer with an unnecessary roguelike structure.

With excellent gameplay mechanics, natural controls and an addictive roguelike experience, Flinthook is the best Tribute Games product to date. It offer us a good equilibrium between challenge, progression and fun.

Flinkhook is an enjoyable game, with worthy permanent upgrades that can help in each consecutive run. There are weekly and daily challenges, and even more complicated versions of bosses that you can unlock if you nothing else to purchase. The use of slowing down time and your grappling hook makes for a highly agile protagonist

You can see, how much work was put into Flinhook by the developer. Unfortunately the difficulty level sometimes spikes over the top, which makes it a game for the most persistent players.

While Flinthook was a swashbuckling good time, the poor level design and odd level system keep this title from being great. Despite the problems, this is a tight platformer with a lot of personality and fun mechanics.

This is another roguelike that pushes the genre forward, bringing pinpoint accurate jumping and shooting to the endless arcade randomization that players of these games love.

Captain Flinthook is a fun character to play as and the way the procedural levels are generated, they just do not do him justice.
