Action Henk slides onto Steam Early Access and Humble Store today

So Action Henk missed its initial goal of hitting Steam Early Access on June 18, but only by a bit. The action figure racing game is now available there, as well as through the Humble Store.

I have been fortunate enough to spend a little bit of time with Action Henk, and so far it has been really fun. Henk and company run along Hot Wheels-like tracks and Jenga-esque towers, but the real skill comes with the butt slide, which can be used on downhill sections to pick up speed. It almost plays like Trials, in that the best times result from landing jumps smoothly.

The whole idea is commendable on its own, because it elicits feelings of being a kid, combining different toy sets to create unlikely scenarios that make perfect sense to a child's brain. Also, sometimes the floor is lava and that's awesome.

Review: Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

I've always thought that Shantae is a bit of an underrated series. While WayForward can be hit or miss these days, I can always rely on their ability to craft a good platformer. Shantae: Risky's Revenge for the DSi ...more
