clunky hero crazy platformer game launches v1.0 on linux mac and windows pc

Clunky Hero crazy platformer game launches v1.0 on Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to the commitment and dedication of Chaosmonger Studio. Available on both Steam and GOG, along with 91% Positive reviews.

In a world filled with good looking and almost perfect superheroes, Chaosmonger Studio from Estonia is proud to announce the release of its anti-hero Rufus, hero of Clunky Hero. Offering Linux support right from the launch of Early Access.

While Rufus is just a simple peasant. He works on a farm, is somewhat bold and he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed. An ordinary man, who one day has to become a hero to save his wife and his village from the Evil One. Whose name shall stay unpronounced. His wife, Brunilde, is also not the classical attractive princess of video games. In fact, she is pretty much the opposite. But the love between the two is stronger than anything else. So that’s why Rufus arms himself with broom and bucket. The first to be used as a weapon, the latter a helmet, due to go and rescue her.

Yes, at the start of the game, the hero of Clunky Hero will fight foes. Doing so simply using only a broom. But more crazy weapons will be available later on, like a very long banana or a frozen eel. There are also ugly enhancement items and powerful, yet bizarre, special skills. That still doesn’t stop me from playing, nor should you.

Clunky Hero – release Trailer

Despite the humoristic tone, which is also a parody of the fantasy RPG genre. Clunky Hero has a solid metroidvania gameplay. While including nearly 50 levels, set in 9 different areas. The exploration of the big maps is therefore a crucial aspect of the game. Which will need special abilities, usually you gain after defeating a tough boss. The variety of levels are full of absurd enemies. This also includes friendly NPCs and detailed backgrounds. The colorful graphics are a mix of 3D and hand-drawn looking elements. While the game mechanic is typical of an arcade side-scroller.

Arcade is also pretty much the game style of the Clunky Hero combats. Which aim mostly to the fun quick slashing of many enemies, rather than having fewer flashy fights. Bonus items can be bought from NPCs in the various shops around. They can are also inside hidden chests, or in the many, yet elusive, secret rooms.

After about a year in Early Access for PC, where it collected more than 90% positive reviews on Steam and GOG. Clunky Hero crazy platformer game now launches out in its full version. Priced at $14.99 USD / £13.99 / 14,99€. Along with support for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC.
