In which an out-of-shape action figure hero from the ‘90s uses his ass to get ahead.


We featured an early version of RageSquid’s indie racing game last year, but it’s come a long way between then and its recent Steam release. The environments are much richer, the butt-sliding is about as satisfying as sliding about on your ass can get—it’s just so much more Action Henk-ier than ever before.

From the game’s Steam description:

Run, jump and butt-slide into the glorious toy-filled world of Action Henk! Become a master of momentum and defy physics as you race against a band of ragged 90s action figures to once and for all prove that Action Henk is the fastest of them all! With over 70 tracks all set in different environments, 5 playable characters, dedicated grappling hook levels, a whole host of medals to beat, and a full-fledged level editor, Action Henk is ready to be played on Windows, Mac & Linux.


Butt-sliding through a glorious toy-filled world is pretty much my every day.

The First Five is the first five minutes of a game with light commentary. Once the five minutes are up, so am I.
