Hyper Light Drifter follow-up Solar Ash is out now

Heart Machine’s Solar Ash is out now, inviting players on a skating adventure to kill giant bosses. It’s a follow-up to their previous game, Hyper Light Drifter, but this time around they’ve swapped the 2D style for 3D, and are sending you out into a big open world. I’m very much looking forward to jumping into its lush and colourful alien landscapes. Oh, to be a sci-fi skater. Read more

Solar Ash review: a stylish skate ’em up that could use more tricks

The folks over at Heart Machine have slid back into the fold with a game set in the same universe as their action-adventure debut Hyper Light Drifter. Except this time it’s not a top-down hack-and-slasher, but a stylish skate to save a civilisation on the brink of collapse. Solar Ash sees you flipping onto the backs of massive monsters and felling them like you’re performing athletic acupuncture. So yes, it does retain something from its predecessor, and that’s the element of cool. This is a cool game. One that excels when it lets you off the leash, only, that doesn’t…

Solar Ash review – burns bright and fizzles out

Do you ever notice when you have a perfect walk? You’re going somewhere (taking the kids to school, heading into town, nipping to the local shop) and when you arrive you realise that you had flow. You never stopped moving. You didn’t have to stop and wait for traffic in order to cross the road. No kids on bikes forced you into a bush. There was no need to take evasive action from someone who clearly didn’t get the memo about Covid. It was a seamless, silky smooth walk. At its best, Solar Ash is that walk. It’s just a…

Top 7 games releasing in December – Halo Infinite, Solar Ash, and more

We highlight the biggest games coming to consoles and PC in December 2021. December is often a quiet time for new releases, with the Christmas month thought of as being a bit late in the year to unleash blockbuster titles.

Halo Infinite finally unleashes its campaign on December 8. Check out the video above for a rundown of the seven games we reckon are the biggest arriving in December, plus a handful of honorable mentions…

Hyper Light Drifter developer’s next game Solar Ash delayed to December

Solar Ash is the next action-y adventure from the folks behind Hyper Light Drifter, which they’ve described as “Super Mario Galaxy meets Shadow Of The Colossus, and sprinkle in a bit of Jet Set Radio.” It was coming up quite soon, and ranked on RPS’s list of best games in October to look forward to thanks to that colourful world and skater-like movement. The monthly list has taken a hit again, as there’s a bit longer to wait for it now. Heart Machine have just announced a delay, though fortunately a short one. Read more
