Tinertia is a platformer with rockets instead of a jump button

Anyone who's mastered the art of rocket jumping should feel at home in Tinertia - Candescent Games' 2.5D platformer swaps traditional controls for a twin-stick set up, with the left stick dedicated to movement and the right for aiming rockets. No worries if "total rocket novice" is an accurate description of your aptitude though, because Tinertia arms its players with unlimited ammo.

As detailed on its Steam page, Tinertia shares a name with its hosting planet, an abandoned locale that's now run by an AI called A.R.C.. Players will propel themselves through more than 80 levels, with eight bosses offering additional challenges beyond conquering gravity via explosives.

According to the PlayStation Blog, Tinertia should have its sights on a PS4 launch within the first half of 2015, but an Early Access version is available now for $14.99 on PC, Mac and Linux.
