Twitch has introduced the subsequent sport to go free with its Prime scheme. Headlander, a Metroid-style sport from Psychonauts and Brutal Legend developer Double Advantageous, is now free on PC for many who subscribe to Twitch Prime.
Twitch’s announcement blog didn’t state when the sport would return to its typical value of $20 / £15. Previous Twitch Prime free games have been free for as little as only a few days, so make sure you seize this one fast–check it out here. It is free to anybody with a Twitch Prime membership, and that features anybody who subscribes to Amazon Prime.
Headlander launched for PC, PS4, and Xbox One in July 2016. It is a retro-futuristic side-scroller, and was met with a positive critical reception upon its launch. In our evaluation, critic Peter Brown awarded the sport an eight/10.
“The 10 or so hours it takes to beat Headlander are filled with glimmering visible results and nice tunes that vary from light-hearted lounge music to overbearing synth tracks,” he wrote. “It is a bizarre and infectious world that seems like the right playground for Headlander’s quirky and fascinating motion. Minus one boss struggle and an odd occasion of main slow-down in a treacherous labyrinth full of bouncing lasers, there’s not often a bump within the street that proves vital sufficient to disrupt the thrill of flying round as a head, decapitating robots, and taking on our bodies towards the sport’s absurd and colourful backdrop.
“From its odd mechanics to its charming presentation, Headlander’s parallels to Metroid bubble below the floor; it is the sport’s recent qualities that seize your consideration and make it one of the vital pleasant takes on the well-worn method in years.” For extra on the sport, try our full Headlander review.
