Become space’s greatest pirate with your hookshot, pistol and slowmo powers!
Flinthook is a fast action-platformer with “roguelike” elements made by Tribute Games Inc. Take down all sorts of enemies with fresh hot bullets! Aim freely and toss your giant anchor at golden rings to propel yourself around the levels at high speeds, giving you the agility and swiftness needed to dodge hazards and enemy bullets. Slow down time to adjust your aim or pull off a tight stunt – do it often, it recharges real quickly and it makes you at least 200% cooler. Feed your compass creature to pinpoint the bosses’ location, then take them down and bring your bounty home. Your rivals are no space chumps, make sure you’re ready for the challenge! Each level is special, as ships are procedurally built from hundreds of hand-crafted rooms, modified by various variants, filled with extraordinary treasure and populated by random waves of enemies. All the treasure you loot builds up your legend – unlock new equippable perks as you level up, buy permanent upgrades in the Black Market, and hoard collectible relics and lore pages!

Essentially, Flinthook is a twitch-style platformer with procedural generated levels. The music, the characters, the bosses, the grappling hook and slow time abilities. It's all here. The control feels fast, fluid, and immersive. The way you aim in this game is nice: you aim in the direction you're moving. Most roguelikes, even the great ones, seem to put a priority on exploration, items and mystery over a solid gameplay foundation. But Flinthook has all of that, plus fantastic presentation AND excellent traversal. I'd definitely recommend this for fans of roguelikes and great platformers.
