It does look pretty good, so I will likely look to cover it in more detail when we can get hold of the developer for a review key. We have a lot of games like it, so hopefully it does something really unique to set itself apart.

The Linux version was actually another done by Ethan Lee, so it's great to see more quality titles on Linux thanks to his work.

About the game
Flinthook is a fast action-platformer with “roguelike” elements. Become space’s greatest pirate with your hookshot, pistol and slowmo powers!
  • Zip around with your mighty hookshot! 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.
  • Shoot in 360’ through your Blasma Pistol! Take down all sorts of enemies with fresh hot bullets!
  • Look really cool with slow-motion powers! 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.

Boy, the pixel art and chiptune sounds are amazing, this is how pixel art should be done in 2017! For the gameplay, I think I am out here, looks to fast for me, I am not getting younger and my reflexes aren't that good anymore.

Don't worry you can slow down the time using the hero's "chrono belt".

Wow, I didn't notice this game and release here at all, but by coincidence I read this article and thought: "I wonder if it's on Linux..". Came here, searched and bam, there it is! Day-1 no less. Makes me a very happy penguin to see the indie scene continue embracing Linux, and that the chance to find a game like this on our platform is so high. Much respect to the indie devs, and Ethan Lee of course!

Now all I need is more disposable income and time to finish some games before buying more..!
