Headlander is a unique take on a familiar genre, and one that works thanks to its design. The humor is classic Double Fine, and even a bit dark at times, but it succeeds in what it sets out to do. The progression is great, and the challenge is there, but never unfair. For those that missed this game on PC or PS4, now is the time to dive in. This is one trip worth taking.
Headlander probably won't be the best "Metroidvania" everyone has ever played, but it is one of the most unique. Its overuse of door-based progression is unfortunate, but is more than made up for by a plethora of inventive scenarios. This is all backed by solid controls and combat mechanics, which is always appreciated. The visual and sound design is reason enough to convince players not to quit until they've finished the game.
Headlander ist ein witziges und vor allem visuell markantes Action-Adventure. Dabei sticht natürlich die Idee mit dem umher düsenden Kopf heraus, mit dem man robotische Feinde enthauptet, um deren Fähigkeiten zu übernehmen - bis hin zum kleinen Staubsauger. Man läuft, rollt, schwebt, weicht aus und irgendwann liefert man sich gleißende Lasergefechte.
