Skylar & Plux does its best Ratchet & Clank impression this May 19th, when the title launches on PC, PS4, and XB1. An action platformer in the same vein as Ratchet & Clank, the game seems to ooze a certain style, even if that style’s not its own. Still, looks aren’t everything and this one could wind up being quite enjoyable. The gadgets look good, the platforming looks solid, and the visuals are fantastic. Looks like a game to watch, especially at a price point of $14.99 USD.
