The brand new action-adventure Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is now available for download on Steam for Windows, as well as on Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 and on Sony’s PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3. Hell Yeah! is, in it’s own words, crazy, over the top, and completely absurd, both in its story, presentation, and gameplay, which sees Ash, the resident dead rabbit and Prince of Hell, on a quest to save face after a scandalous photograph is taken of him during a bath with his favorite rubber ducky and posted on the ‘Hellternet’, which garners over 100 page views. Ash then decides to do what comes naturally to him and opts to kill every single monster in a variety of ridiculous ways before word of his secret obsession gets out. The ways in which the player ultimately kills these monsters is unique, and one of the game’s most bizarre and interesting gameplay mechanics, as they engage in timing-based minigames, similar to those seen in Nintendo’s WarioWare series of games, which have a similar tone to that of Hell Yeah. It’s core gameplay revolves around platforming and exploration, with player gaining access to new items and abilities as they progress through ten large worlds.
A trial version of the game is available on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network, which features the first world of the game. It’s also worth noting that those who pre-purchase Hell Yeah! on Steam will receive ten free games as part of the Classic SEGA Platform Collection, which includes Comix Zone, Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle, Kid Chameleon, Ristar, Decap Attack, Flicky, Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair, Gunstar Heroes, Dynamite Headdy, and Wonder Boy in Monster World, also available on Steam.
