MasonicGamer.com - 2D Platformers are back in style, thanks to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. In the last few years we’ve seen some real gems, such as the puzzle focused Braid and Limbo, and the more reflex-based Super Meat Boy. Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit, the newest of the genre to arrive for sale, fits into the latter of these two sub-categories, testing your fingers more than your brain.
Upon firing it up, you’ll be treated to the classic Sega logo, with its badly-recorded pronouncement, and you may be fooled into thinking you’re about to play an innocent Sonic-style platformer that takes you back to your youth. However, Hell Yeah! is a different breed of platform game, from its level design to its art style to its humor. Some of it works quite well; some of it does not.
