This charming indie roguelike platformer released rather recently, although it was overshadowed by games like The Disney Afternoon Collection, Full Throttle Remastered, and Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy Episode 1, all releasing on the same day, Flinthook stands out. In Flinthook, you play as the titular space pirate with a grappling hook, exploring the Mermaidon galaxy to hunt treasure, fight bad guys, and collect bounties for wanted criminals.
Whereas fellow roguelike The Binding of Isaac, is dark, disturbing, and inspired by the top down view of the Legend of Zelda games, Flinthook is more similar to a Metroidvania style game, while being much more humorous and lighthearted.
With its science fiction and classic pirate crossover aesthetic, Flinthook is a great game for any fan of indie platformers, roguelikes, and space pirating.
Buy it on on Steam, or PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
