Rock Solid Platforming!
Developed by Jaywalkers Interactive and published by Abstraction Games, Kick & Fennick is a fantastic 2.5D platformer with alot of charm and a fantastic audio-visual presentation! Is this enough to make Kick & Fennick a blockbuster indie hit like Shovel Knight or Freedom Planet? Not quite, but it's still a fantastic title in its own right and here's why!
Kick & Fennick is a fairly lengthy platformer with over 5 hours of gameplay. The gameplay itself is quite unique as your character will use a rather oversized gun to launch himself to reach otherwise inaccessible platforms and in certain cases to defeat enemies. There are some collectables in the game, but not many.
The game starts off easy, but actually becomes fairly difficult in the later stages and should provide a decent challenge which is always a good thing!
The controls are perfect and should be a cinch for most players to learn! Visually the game is gorgeous and looks on par with AAA 2.5D platformers such as Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze so expect to be wowed! The soundtrack is also superb and fits the game quite nicely!
With great gameplay, flawless controls, and a perfectly balanced level of difficulty, Kick & Fennick will draw players in, and its charming and superb audio-visual presentation will leave a smile on their faces! These reasons and more are why we highly recommend the game to all Wii U owners! It's not quite at the same level as masterpieces such as Shovel Knight, but it comes very close!
Score: ★★★★★★★★½☆☆ 8.5/10

Kicking It Up On U!
Abstraction Games are currently working on porting two more of their games to the Wii U eShop. The first is Kick & Fennick, which previously released on the Playstation Vita. Here's the official overview of the game:
Official Overview wrote:“ Kick & Fennick is a brand new platform adventure about a little boy with a very big gun.
Soon after waking up in a desolate but colorful world, Kick meets a small flying robot named Fennick. When Fennick saves Kick from a menacing guard robot, they find out Fennick’s battery is broken. Together, they embark on an adventure to the Core Tower to find Fennick a new energy core.
Besides shooting down enemy robots, Kick can make huge jumps by using his gun’s powerful recoil. Jump and shoot your way through 45 levels of collapsed skyscrapers, treadmills, bouncypads, magnets, teleporters and that big guard robot who’s never far behind!
Kick & Fennick features colorful 3d graphics, detailed animation, a cinematic camera system and smooth character movement and physics. “
Here's the official trailer for Kick & Fennick below:
Here's the official overview for Devil's Dare:
Official Overview wrote:“Devil’s Dare is a 2D zombie beat’em up, supporting up to 4 players to co-op and fight together locally. Being the spritual successor to Bitejacker, Devil’s Dare carries the same theme of parodies, pitting classic game heroes against monsters straight out of 90s horror movies.
Devil’s Dare doesn’t just relies on grinding and leveling up, but instead introduces permadeath to keep players on their toes. With every kill, the player makes some cash, which you can use to purchase upgrades or save it to revive when you’re dead. When you run out of cash completely, you are dead for good and it’s time to start over again. This is a mechanic inspired by the good old arcade days, where every death meant another penny wasted!
Our main influence were some of Capcom’s classics like Alien vs. Predator, Battle Circuit, Final Fight as well as Sega’s Streets of Rage Series. So if you were a fans of those, give it a shot. I’m sure you will find something to love in Devil’s Dare. “
And finally here's the trailer for Devil's Dare (Below)
