As someone who found often Trials more frustrating than enjoying it’s a testament to the quality of Action Henk that I was absolutely engrossed and lost swathes to time in beating the numerous tracks and then going back to repeat my times. For an indie title it’s extremely polished and a real unexpected surprise – RageSquid may be a new developer but they certainly know how to make a fun game.

Action Henk is easily one of the best speed-runners in years. The simple controls make its wealth of technique easily accessible and the sheer variety of challenges in its course layout makes each level a blast to learn and perfect. A high-level tutorial for the more subtle moves would have been nice, but it’s nothing that paying attention to experience can’t cover. Somehow manage to perfect each technique and earn a rainbow medal on all levels and you can even build your own or download more from the Steam workshop. Getting through the levels only requires bashing Henk against them, restarting at checkpoints and accepting the bronze. Getting good, learning the level flow and putting it all together in a lightning-fast run, on the other hand, takes a little practice, but the reward is a feeling of earned skill in a perfect execution that looked wonderfully effortless.

Action Henk è veloce, fluido, e mai frustrante in maniera gratuita. Se solo offrisse qualche incentivo in più rispetto alla ricerca del tempo migliore, potrebbe durare in eterno. Così com'è finisce invece presto, anche se potreste lasciarlo installato per qualche sporadica partita. Se invece avete degli amici che giocano e un frigo pieno, allora una sfida ad Action Henk diventa una tappa obbligatoria.

Action Henk ist eine Ode an meine Kindheit, habe ich doch selbst den Großteil meiner frühen Jahre mit Actionfiguren, dem Super Nintendo und Matchbox-Autos verbracht. Das flotte Jump&Run packt all diese Erinnerungen unter einen Hut und geht schon in der Alpha-Version fantastisch von der Hand. Jedes Level bietet neue Hindernisse oder Ideen: von Loopings über riesige Schluchten bis hin zu einem Enterhaken. Auch an Nachschub mangelt es nicht, die Entwickler veröffentlichen regelmäßig neue Levels.

Completing Action Henk will set you back around five hours or so, and you will be at the edge of your seat for most of that time. The speed is immensely satisfying, and earning those precious gold medals after replaying levels feels good. It’s a heart-pumping adventure starring action figures and toy tracks, so give yourself a break and come play.

Barring the final, post-credits set of levels -- which is absolutely brutal -- it shouldn't take more than a few hours to get through Action Henk with decent rankings. Although the game doesn't outstay its welcome, that can be difficult to appreciate. I was left wanting more, particularly in terms of level variety, but the essence of the game is great.
