Grappling Hook Roguelike Flinthook Secures New Gameplay, Release Date

Following up on 2014’s sidescroller shoot-em-up Mercenary Kings, Tribute Games is nearing completion of its latest title, a fast-paced 2D roguelike by the name of Flinthook.

Announced almost a year ago, Flinthook stars the titular space captain as he fights his way through hordes of enemies with the assistance of his blaster pistol, hookshot and ability to slow down time. With plenty of randomly generated spaceships to discover and plunder, Flinthook is looking to be another solid entry in the increasingly crowded genre.

Check out the new gameplay trailer for Flinthook below, which reveals that the game will be launching on April 18 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
