logo for Shank

Shank is a side-scrolling fighting game starring the titular character, an ex-mob hitman. Shank wants to avenge the death of his girlfriend, who was killed right before his eyes by a gang. He has to run and jump through levels while killing hordes of enemies and bosses. The mechanics are based on 3 weapon types; knives, melee weapons like machetes and chainsaws, and ranged weapons like shotguns and double pistol. Each weapon type is bound to a different input button. He often has to fight off many enemy at once as the different attacks can be linked into combos.

For multiplayer there is a separate campaign that is played locally with player who controls Shank's partner Falcone. The levels are built around cooperative gameplay, and the story acts as a prequel to the main game storyline.
