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.
