Silly Physics-Based Twitch Game 'Agent Wonky' is Coming May 3rd and Up for Pre-Order Now

Just a couple of weeks ago, we posted how Tap Hero [Free] developer Michał Walaszczyk was working on a brand new project called Agent Wonky and was looking for beta test participants. Well, the response to the beta test has been great, and now Agent Wonky is pretty much finished up and has an official release date of May 3rd. Agent Wonky utilizes a similar left/right twitch reaction mechanic to the previous Tap Hero, but mixes in some touch gestures to really tax your abilities to recognize and react. Also it features ragdoll physics for no other real reason than to be extra silly. Check out this new trailer to see what Agent Wonky is like in action...

'Agent Wonky' is a Silly Twitch Game from the Maker of 'Tap Hero' that's Looking for Beta Testers

Back in August of 2016, developer Michał Walaszczyk released Tap Hero [Free], a twitchy arcade game that challenged your left/right dexterity in a similar fashion to games like Timberman [Free] and many others. It also had some gorgeous pixel art and a great "feel" to the mechanics, and we enjoyed Tap Hero enough to award it our Game of the Week when it released. Now Walaszczyk has taken it upon himself to learn Unity and jump from 2D pixel art to full 3D polygons for his next release. The upcoming game is called Agent Wonky, and it too has a similar twitchy style to Tap Hero in that you'll be blasting away bad guys approaching from either side of the screen, but you'll do this by matching the direction and type of swipe that each bad guy has floating above his head. It's a mechanic that reminds me a lot of the fantastic The Firm [$0.99], as some enemies have red colored arrows over their head which indicates you'll need to swipe in the opposite direction that the arrow points to, and that's the type of thing that will twist your brain into knots as the speed of the game increases and the pressure mounts up. Here's a few gifs showing what Agent Wonky is like in motion...
