First released in February 2015 for PlayStation Vita as a PlayStation Plus free game, platformer Kick and Fennick from Abstraction Games and Jaywalkers Interactive is making its way to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U in spring 2016.

Playing as a boy named Kick who wakes up in a bright and colorful, yet dangerous world, you use a giant gun to shoot enemy robots and make huge jumps during your search for a new energy core for Fennick, his flying robot friend.

Complete with 45 levels, here’s what to expect from Kick and Fennick:

  • Players take on the role of Kick and must use a combination of jumping and blasting to navigate all 45 levels and find their way to the Core Tower to save Fennick!
  • Marvel at the brightly colored world of Kick & Fennick with inspired character design, intricate and delightfully chaotic levels, highly-detailed animations, and a cinematic camera system that dynamically follows all of the action.
  • Kick & Fennick offers up challenging platforming adventures and puzzles that will keep gamers of all ages entertained.  As unique as it is challenging, Kick & Fennick continues to find new ways to push your platforming skills to their absolute limit you use an oversized weapon which is both challenging to master, but gives you the ability to reach platforms and items that you would not normally be able to reach in a standard platformer.  Kick and Fennick is distinctive in the way that learning the capabilities that your weapon gives you is paired well with the exceptional level design.
  • Kick & Fennick is a true “smooth and easy-going” platformer – it’s challenging enough to make you feel as though you’re continually accomplishing challenges, but not to the point where you’ll throw your controller in frustration! The intricacy and difficulty of the puzzles ramps up gradually and right along with your comfort level for the game’s unique play mechanics.

Jaywalkers Interactive Co-Founder Vincent Bonefaas said, “With Kick & Fennick, we tried to create a unique platforming experience. We’ve had fantastic reactions and can’t wait for a wider audience to be able to play through it. Platforming fans looking for a breath of fresh air in the genre should definitely check it out, and we can’t wait to hear their feedback.”

Abstraction Games didn’t say if Kick and Fennick would include cross-buy on PlayStation, or what changes would be made for the console version.
