Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is out today on PSN (tomorrow on Xbox Live and October 3 for PC). It’s a Metroidvania style game — a 2D game with lots of exploration, killing and item finding — but with a twist.
It’s flat out ridiculous, silly and a little bit awkward at times. The storyline sets up the humour straight away, but the game’s penchant for over the top blood splatter and ridiculous death scenarios involving dinosaurs and dancing pandas take it to a whole other level.
While you’re exploring as the Prince of Hell through platforming levels — attempting to strike vengeance on all of Hell’s inhabitants who mocked your lewd rubber-ducky-in-the-bathtub photos — you’ll slice through enemies atop a jetpack-fueled chainsaw drill. Or you can dress that drill up to be a pink, sprinkled doughnut if you so choose. But perhaps the silliest feature of the game is the finishing moves you can perform on minibosses. Check out some of the more awkward ones in the video above, curated by our own Chris Person.
Things will go splat. Things will also get electrocuted. Mainly, things will be dying in many, many inventive ways.
