Flying Hamster II is here for you, Wonder Boy fans


5:30 PM on 04.04.2014



Flying Hamster was a shoot-'em-up (or should I say, "cute-'em-up") for PSP, PS Vita, and iOS. Its sequel is not that, at all -- it's much more compelling. Fans of the Wonder Boy / Monster World series are going to want to take a look at this new action-adventure platformer.

To be frank, I wasn't into the cutesy aesthetic at first but such feelings disappeared the further into this Kickstarter pitch video I got. This looks like a real good time and I'm of the opinion that there aren't nearly enough of these games being made today. Flying Hamster II looks the part as far as its inspirations go; I'm just hoping it can pull off that same "game feel" as Wonder Boy.

Developer Game Atelier is seeking $150,000 for a Steam release, with stretch goals extending the supported platform list to include PS4, PS Vita, 3DS, Wii U, and Xbox One. We've got a month.

I played Super Mario Bros.' World 1-1 as fat Sonic in Action Henk

If there's a level editor, World 1-1 from Super Mario Bros. will find a way. But before I get to that, there's a more pressing matter: fat action figures dressed up like Sonic the Hedgehog. Yes, we could use more of those in ...more

New Fossil Echo trailer shows off its Oddworld influence

When we first saw Fossil Echo earlier this year, all we really had to go on was its sharp cartoon art style and a list of influences: Shadow of the Colossus, Studio Ghibli films, and Oddworld. Some of those influences were a...more
