Matterfall Is A Metroid-Contra Which Requires Incredible Dexterity

I love complicated action games in general, though I have a particular soft spot for ones that make my hands hurt. I am pleased to announce that Resogun and Super Stardust HD developers Housemarque’s latest game, Matterfall, takes a seat beside God Hand at the roundtable of games which might cause carpal tunnel. In the video above I walk you through Matterfall’s wacky controls, and partially lose my mind doing so.


Is Matterfall a masterpiece? Well, no, though it makes my brain, eyes, and hands feel numb in an intriguing way.

Matterfall was released yesterday exclusively on PlayStation 4. It has loads of HDR, and runs at a rock-solid 60 frames per second in a native resolution of 4K on the PlayStation 4 Pro. I’m saying it is extremely good to look at.

I make videos for Kotaku. I make video games for myself and my friends. I like writing fiction. Someday I will publish a novel. Who knows!
