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.
