If you've been hankering after a bit of the old-school side-scrolling brawler with some RPG beats on the side, then the folks at Hyper Awesome Entertainment might just have you covered.
Set to release this summer on PC, Dungeon Punks is an effort which aims to revisit the past glories of games such as Capcom's Dungeons and Dragons series in a more contemporary fashion.

In addition to letting players step into the role of six different heroes, Dungeon Punks also boasts a progression system that builds upon the foundations lain in those earlier classic games from which it derives its inspiration. With new equipment and experience points that can be piled into a number of skill trees, the scope for character progression is deep to say the least.
Of course, like any side-scrolling fighter worth its salt, Dungeon Punks not only allow solo play but local co-op too, supporting up to three players in the process. Where the game really sets itself apart from its peers however, is in the tag-team mechanic that allows one player to effectively control two heroes at once.
With vividly detailed cartoon visuals, a whole heap of humour and what looks to be a sizable campaign, Dungeon Punks looks like one to keep on the radar when it releases in a couple of months time. Until then though, you might want to check out the announcement teaser trailer below.
