Hothead Games recently stopped by the G4 offices to give us some hands-on time with its upcoming action-platformer Swarm and, thankfully, we already had plenty of tarps lying around (don’t ask) because the level of adorable carnage on display in this game is just unspeakable…oh, and awesome. Here’s a peek at our preview:

"Death is not only an integral part of the gameplay, it’s also unavoidable, which is meants to  alleviate some of the common frustrations that tend to be a staple of platforming titles. Within the first 30 seconds of my hands-on playthrough of the first three levels of the game, I had lost around half of my swarm in a field of bear traps, their little blue heads popping off their bodies like corks, but I was giggling too much to feel bad."

Check out our full Swarm hands-on preview for more.
