Add a string to your elbow
Robin’s Pick! “I can’t wait to explore this chunky, tactile world – this is a dev that knows how to make action-RPGs.”
You’d think an enormous stone arm would be a hindrance for exploring dangerous worlds, but the unnamed lead in the latest adventure from Torchlight dev Runic Games has clearly seen Hellboy and makes it rather useful. Trotting through a beautiful top-down world, the hooded hero uses the granite limb for taking down enemies with Hulk-style smashes and grappling to new areas. Hob’s colourful world is ultra-easy on the eyes and begging to be explored. Adventure? Check. Puzzles? Check. A beautiful world that evolves and redesigns itself around you? Check. We’re going to go out on a (stone) limb and say we’re in.
