Hammerin' Hero Preview

Brad Gallaway's picture

Developed by none other than Irem (makers of seminal shooter R-Type, personal fave Disaster Report, and others) this little guy and his hammer set out in an adorably irreverent and slightly absurd adventure.

Keeping things fresh, main character Gen has a slew of different outfits to alter his abilities, and each level is set in a completely different location. From construction zones, to baseball stadiums, underwater and beyond, you never quite know what the next stage will bring.

Platform games never go out of style as long as they're done well, and there's tons of charm in Hammerin’ Hero. According to my sources, it should be hitting store shelves on April 7th, so check out the images and video below—and if you want more info, check out the Atlus' Hammerin' Hero page.

I really dig this game. I

I really dig this game. I can't say I'd put money down on the counter for this game, but it does have its appeal.

It reminds me of some of the side-scrollers of old, like Pocky and Rocky (due largely to the music) and River City Ransom (the art style and levels). It hearkens back to the day when quirky side-scrollers were the norm and not the rarity that they are today.

love it.

i love this game already. just watching hero do his hipster walk makes me lol. The psp NEEDS games like this to separate itself from the ds. now if only sony could get square to start on that ffvii port, it'd be hard for me and a lot of people i know to not run out and buy a psp right now.
