The oversized left arm of Hobs silent protagonist is mechanical, gifted to them by a friendly robot early in the game. This magnificent appendage has multiple uses, from charged punches that make enemies explode and walls crumble, to activating arcane machinery and changing the layout of levels.
You also have a sword, letting you cut foes down in a stylish flurry, but its that great metal fist and its myriad upgrades that really stands out. When you charge and unleash it, whether the target is living or inanimate, you can almost feel its immense, crushing power rippling through your controllerwhich, incidentally, I strongly recommend you play with.
Hob is a mysterious little game, telling a wordless, enigmatic story that you have to piece together yourself. Its not as abstractly cryptic as Hyper Light Drifter, which does something similar, but you still have to work to make sense of it.
