I remember when I was younger, platformers were all the rage. There was at the time, a heap of amazing games to choose from. A plethora of choice. For that reason, I always get a little excited and interested when I see that a new platformer is heading to the Xbox One.
Developer, Jaywalkers, have been showing off their wares with Kick and Fennick for a few months now and they’ve just released a big fat heap of new screens to make any platforming fan drool. So, what’s the game about?
Kick and Fennick will tell the story of a young boy, named Kick, who finds himself waking up in a bright and colourful world. It isn’t a safe world though. A wary Kick discovers a friend in the small flying robot, Fennick, who saves him from a menacing guard robot. In the course of this, the little robot’s battery breaks. Kick must embark on a mission to the Core Tower to find a new energy core.
Besides shooting down enemy robots, Kick can make massive jumps by using his weapon’s powerful recoil. Together, Kick and Fennick must explore this strange new world, jumping and shooting their way through 45 levels of collapsed skyscraper buildings, treadmills, bounce-pads, magnets, teleporters and a truly huge guard robot.
These are all out to stop Kick at all costs, which usually means that he needs to defend himself at all times.
Abstraction Games are publishing this for Jaywalkers and it will be heading to Xbox One soon.
Have a look at the lovely new screens that have been released, below.
