Like the vehicle controls, the humor is more than meets the eye. I expected to be turned off by the humor after watching the announcement trailer, but the dialogue between Ash and his faithful servant actually made me smile. Hell Yeah! is clearly invoking the over-the-top spectacle of revenge films, made even more ludicrous by the fact that this one happens to star a demon bunny.
The setting imagines Hell not just as a place of fire and brimstone, but a pulsing, blood-red soaked landscape full of irregular angles and deadly spikes. Over the course of the full game, I can imagine the saturated, vibrant red color making for tired eyes, so I hope the full game will mix up the palette a bit.
Indie platformers are fairly commonplace, but Arkedo has proven itself with smaller projects and is hitting on something special with Hell Yeah! The humor, setting, and sheer fun of shredding hapless minions combine to make one of the more interesting games at PAX East, so it's certainly one to watch when it launches on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this year.
Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit!
