Console versions and local multiplayer are here!



Hey everyone!

We’re really happy to announce that we’ve launched Action Henk on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. It’s taken us some time, but the wait was definitely worth it. The console version of Action Henk introduces a new local multiplayer feature, and because it’s a real blast, we’re also bringing the local multiplayer to the PC version! Time to invite some friends for some Henkin’!

With this patch we’ve also fixed some important bugs (which are listed below) and are bringing in a new skin for Kentony to get this party started! We’ve also noticed that we’ve gained a lot of Spanish and Portuguese friends, so we included these languages in the build as well: ‘Olá!’

If there is ever a question or anything you’d like to know, get in touch with us through the Action Henk community forum and we’ll be happy to help you out!

Cheers!

New Features:

  • Local Multiplayer! Have fun racing your friends on the couch!
  • The long-awaited Carnaval Kentony is now unlockable! Beat his special Carnaval Kentony Festival level to unlock him!
  • Spanish and Portuguese languages have been added.
  • The cutscene exploit should be fixed now, we will be removing invalid scores on the leaderboard over the next couple of days.
  • Fixed the level editor bug with environments not unlocking and levels switching to the basic environment.

Action Henk on consoles and news about Local Multiplayer!



Hey all!

We haven’t launched any big updates recently but I’m here with some information for you guys to let you know what we’ve been up to and what’s happening on our side.

The biggest thing is that the console port launch is getting closer and closer, it’s actually going to happen! We’ll start off with XB1 and PS4 in early March, the others have no definitive launch date yet as Henk needs to … lose some more weight before he fits on a PS3, Vita or Wii-U. Related to this, Action Henk is going to be in Sony’s Vote to Play! Starting February 9 you can vote on Action Henk to be free for a month for PS+ owners!

Secondly we’re also extremely happy about the fact that we’re finally, by popular demand, going to launch LOCAL MULTIPLAYER FOR PC! We’ll launch the local multiplayer mode simultaneously with the XB1 and PS4 versions. We’ve been playing it a lot in the office and its damn fun if I say so myself. Time to dust off those controllers and grab some mates!

Lastly we’re aware of some bugs in the PC version and we’ll get to them in the next week. Mainly the bug where you can start a level before the clock starts by triggering multiple cutscenes and the bug where players are unable to select environments other than the kid’s room for their level editor levels.

We always read the forums so that’s still the easiest way if you want to get in touch with us or want to let us know about something.

Thanks!

Lex

Ubisoft's Trials with much less trolling and better pacing.

Run, jump and glide through a 2.5D track with hills, ramps and loops that become harder and harder...and harder. Easy to get into, with some end content that's borderline sadistic. Fun for all.

Momentum, Momentum, Momentum!

Action Henk is a racing platformer developed by RageSquid studios which recently left Early Access. In Action Henk you play as Henk, obviously, an out of shape 90s action hero trying to defeat his nemesis Kentony! Run, jump, slide and wall jump your way to victory with one of the five playable characters. Action Henk's gameplay is sort of like Speedrunners meets the Trials series, I'd describe it as Trials without the bikes.

+Nice graphics
+Hilariously imagined characters
+Fun gameplay, it really has the "one more try for gold" feel to it
+Some great references throughout ranging from Thunderbirds, to MIB to the Sanic meme
+Over 70 tracks (not to mention all of the community made ones)
+Five playable characters, each with different skins to unlock
+Great soundtrack
+Lots of replayability, especially if you want to have a gold medal for each map
+A good level editor
+A fun hookshot mechanic which is introduced later in the game
+Difficulty increases at a good rate
+Great controls (I played with KB&M)
+After completing a level you can challenge your friends to try and beat your time
+Friendly devs

-At some parts in later levels it can be difficult to know what you're supposed to do unless you watch how the ghost does it first

Verdict:
9

Action Henk is an absolutely fantastic racing platformer with nice graphics, great characters, addictive gameplay and loads of levels to play. If you're a fan of Speedrunners or trials this is an absolute must buy!

This game started as a friend coming over to my house on release day and literally forcing me to purchase it, to that night spending 8 hours taking turns with the controller beating each others times. After rainbowing all of the original levels I fell away from it for a few months. Then with the introduction of the new levels and multiplayer I have not been able to stop playing this game! I'm now in the top ten and have a WR on a level and have no intentions of stopping as there is so much I can do and play.
The multiplayer is perfectly done, you can chat, throw in a taunt and see what others are doing. If you were good enough then you can gloat from the podium. I haven't even mentioned the level editor that allows you to make your own levels that are downright devious or just flat out fun!
The level designs are fun, yet challenging. The earlier levels are easy to play hard to master, and the later levels are just plain challenging. It is vibrant with lots of colors great animations and environments, and tons of amazing eastereggs. The developers of this game obviously made it as a passion project. It is a hotwheels meets speedrunners and is just incredible. BUY THIS GAME! It is the next huge indie game IMO and these devs deserve every penny!

Early Access Review
Best butt-slides. 10/10

Seriously, this is an amazing momentum-based platforming/speedrunning game. Simple but tweaked-to-perfection physics allow for super elaborate movements, where how you approach every jump and every millisecond really matters.
It feels great to master new tiny details that allow you to shave time off your score. Just nails that "try again and do even better" vibe. Also looks and sounds great, cool demoscene tunes & a great "action-figures-but-20-years-later" aesthetic.
