Flinthook is a platform game roguelike by Tribute Games in which the player’s character uses a grappling hook to traverse procedurally generated spaceships for treasure. The developers were inspired by “rogue-lites” including Spelunky and Rogue Legacy. They said that the grappling hook game mechanic was their hardest design challenge. The game was released in April 2017 for Windows, macOS, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, followed by a release for Nintendo Switch in March 2018. Early previews of Flinthook noted the accessibility and tightness of the controls. Digital Trends and Kotaku listed the game among the best in show at the June 2016 Electronic Entertainment Expo.



Flinthook is a roguelike platform game in which the player controls a masked space pirate who explores procedurally generated ships for treasure with a grappling chain hook. Captain Flinthook, the player-character, also has a plasma gun and the ability to slow time. The hook is used on environmental elements as well as enemies. For example, some enemies are invulnerable until the player removes their armor via the hook.

The player uses the left analog stick to both control the player and aim the hook. The hook is activated via the controller’s trigger, and face buttons make the character jump, shoot, throw bombs, and interact with nearby objects. The game’s level design and room contents are randomly generated, such that a room might look familiar but contain different enemies. The player unlocks different bounties to hunt down and must start a chapter over from the beginning upon their character’s death. The game is depicted in pixel art
