That looks insane yet awesome too. I don't see how this will be played with only one button though.



Corbs said:

Check out One Button Bob. It should be similar to that.



Birdman said:

@1 - That's what I was thinking as well, but from the trailer it looks like, in addition to the one-action button thing, there are some standard platformer controls (though not a jump). Care to confirm this, Hugo?

@Birdman13 :

Everything is done with only one button! it's similar to One Button Bob, but with much MUCH more actions, animations and details.



MeloMan said:

Pretty funny. It reminds me of a take on Earthworm Jim just with a fish



Corbs said:

I'm on this one on day one! Can't WAIT to take this baby for a spin.



motang said:

Wow that's looks awesome, kinda reminds me a bit of Earthworm Jim.

Can't see the video right now because my computers messed up. I will be getting this game though. Can't wait.

I really liked that trailer of Flipper 2. In fact I totally loved the music too.

@HugoSmits, will there be a Flipper 2 tie-in comic?



Raylax said:

Looks like a cross between Earthworm Jim and Warioland 4, with Tomena Sanner gameplay mixed in. Which is a good thing in my book. A very good thing.



Supremeist said:

I've never even played the first Flipper. I am guessing some people really enjoy it though?



Late said:

I don't like the character's look and the animations seem a little "laggy" to me, like they wouldn't have enough frames for some things.



KDR_11k said:

Looks a lot like Earthworm Jim to me, including the "it doesn't make sense" aspect.



LordJumpMad said:

I was thinking the same thing!
It looks great.
Sadly, The 3DS makes DSiware games, look burry.



HugoSmits said:


the gameplay footage was captured from an emulator. So that might explain the laggy part... on hardware it runs smoothly.

Flush alone has more than 200 frames of animation!

Day one buy. I actually found One Button Bob boring, but Flipper was beyond fantastic, and way too short.



xVermicide said:

the framerate looks pretty bad. even worse than zenonia.
is this just a bad effect of the video? or does the game actually suffer from a horrible framerate?



HugoSmits said:


framerate is a combo of my poor video edit skills and recording from a emulator on a not so good pc. Made some pretty bad choices there.

Will improve it in the next trailer...

the game runs silky smooth thourgh!
