Quick one this week, because this basically preempted other games I had planned for this week’s RGotW. The reason: I had no idea this game existed until a short while ago. The gameplay above is from very few attempts to play the game, thus it doesn’t go very far, but I plan to play a lot more of it and get better. Because it is good.
The game features an overworld where you fight monsters and find caves and secrets, Zelda 1 style, but also has side-scrolling and even vertical shooter-like elements, and that’s just in the little bit I played — who knows what lies in store in this game? And I’m excited to find out.
This is why I can’t understand why we bother with new games when there are so many old games to play and discover. I have played games on many systems my entire life and am still discovering “new” games to play.
