Preview: Featherpunk Prime, Gun Wielding Robo-Flamingos Are Awesome

We got the chance to play an early demo of a 2D action adventure twin-stick platforming shooter called Featherpunk Prime developed by Super Hatch Games, which is a game about being a robotic space flamingo with a bunch of flamingo-robo abilities like boosting through the air, grinding along platforms or sticking on walls.. etc. You also get a small droid-dude that gives you a range of weapons as you venture through levels.

The major thing to talk about in this kind of game aside from its beautiful and unique art style that I really dig (although I kind of miss how the colors looked when they’ve announced the game) is the gameplay, which is really nice as the controls are smooth but an odd but manageable control-layout, mixed with good level designs from what we’ve played so far that’s complimented with good enemy variation and difficulty management. It is a challenging game and the bosses are a fun challenge, not so hard to push you away from it but one that you’d continue getting better at on a good pace with the increase in challenge.

The slice of what I played felt great and gave me a really awesome impression of the game, and while the gameplay is enjoyable (wouldn’t mind a more customizable experience regarding button layout) the core allure of the game is its solid character designs, art direction and how everything animates and bends so well with each other.

Check out the game’s website for more information about it. You can also download the alpha demo that we’ve played here. [There’s also some notes that we’d advise you to read if you decide to play the demo]
