Jason Clement posted a article in FeaturesFlinthook Developer: Tribute Games Publisher: Tribute Games Genre: Platformer Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC (Steam) If you love indie games and platformers but you've never heard of Tribute Games before, they'll certainly be on your radar after today. Most recently known for Mercenary Kings and the Mega Man-inspired Ninja Senki DX, Tribute Games focuses on pixel-stylized action and platforming games, not unlike some of the great classics of yesteryear. In Flinthook, you play as a space pirate who uses a hook device to zip around procedurally-generated levels and plunder treasure and the like. Check out the trailer above! Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: A Telltale Series Developer: Telltale Games Publisher: Telltale Games Genre: Episodic Point and Click Adventure Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Android, iOS Before 2014, almost no one outside of the comics realm knew who the Guardians of the Galaxy are, but thanks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe film of the same, Star-Lord and his crew are some of the hottest new heroes around. Telltale's new episodic series continues the same fun and edgy vibe projected in the movie while taking the crew on a new story that will test each team member's resolve. Plus Thanos is in it, so... instabuy, right? Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap Developer: Lizardcube Publisher: DotEmu Genre: Action platformer Platform: PS4, Switch, Xbox One, PC (Steam) I didn't grow playing SEGA games in my household, so I missed out on the Wonder Boy series up till now. Turns out that was a huge mistake, as Wonder Boy is one of the best platformer series of yesteryear, and Lizardcube and DotEmu's have given Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap one of the best-looking makeovers I've ever seen for a game that came out close to 30 years ago. Disney Afternoon Collection Developer: Digital Eclipse, Capcom Publisher: Capcom Genre: Action platformer, shmup Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC Ducktales. Darkwing Duck. Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers. Tale-Spin. What more could you ask for than some of the most classic animated cartoons from the '90s? If you've never played their companion games that came out for the NES (or even if you have), this is an amazing way to experience them all. Seriously, these are some of the best licensed games of all time, and most of them hold up extremely well. Full Throttle Remastered Developer: Double Fine Games Publisher: Double Fine Games Genre: Point and Click Adventure Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC First it was Grim Fandango. Then Day of the Tentacle. And now, LucasArts' classic Full Throttle is getting the remaster treatment courtesy of Tim Schafer's Double Fine. Though not was well known as the former mentioned games, Full Throttle was an interesting game about a biker who gets tangled up in a tale of intrigue, and this is the best way to experience it nowadays. Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom Developer: Enigami Publisher: Focus Home Games Genre: Action RPG Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC It seems rare that we get full 3D RPGs from indie devs these days, but Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom definitely deserves props for being one of the best looking and most interesting in recent times. In Shiness, your crew of characters gets caught up in a conflict spanning multiple kingdoms and takes you on a journey through a universe on the verge of collapse. Let us know which of these games you're thinking of buying this week!
Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsDid you know that the beautifully hand-drawn retro-remake that is Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is only a few weeks away from release? Time certainly flies! And publisher DotEmu has released a new trailer for the game, detailing a brand new feature: you can also play as the brand new Wonder Girl. It appears that this is more of a palette/character swap, if anything, given that Wonder Girl is shown to have the same skill set and no new special abilities of her own. But it's a welcome addition nonetheless for female players who want to play as a female hero. Developer Lizardcube mentions in a blog post that that's actually the reason behind them adding Wonder Girl, adding that "an 8 year old girl [sic] could be playing the game today, and we felt it was the right thing to do." In addition to the Wonder Girl news, the trailer once again showcases the previous announcement where you'll be able to swap between modern and retro visual styles while playing the game. Pretty nifty indeed! Check out the Wonder Boy and Wonder Girl Trailer below. Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is slated for release on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One on April 18.
