So this sounds like sort of a collection of mini-games?

Trailer here:


It's basically 2-in-1 games with more game types coming. Each game type has 3 difficulty modes. I would say we were inspired by the Game & Watch series mixed with some madness!

This one has my attention more than most tonight. Very tempted to pull the trigger, but I'll wait for some impressions first.

I downloaded it, honestly I need more time with it... As of now there're only two game modes with a bunch of retro skins. I was hoping it was something else I guess?

BTW I dig the old school game and watch games, but they just don't hold my attention for very long anymore.

Spent some time with it, I really like the dodge mode!

It's a high score chasing old school arcade game, nothing really more then that. If your looking for a plateformer this ant it. But if you like the old school LCD game and watch style of games this is right up your alley! I'm a BIG fan of the GW games, and really dig this game. I do think it could use a few more mini games, but then again it's only a buck! I don't expect a whole lot for a buck, and am pleasantly suprised a lot with iOS games. If your the type that needs 8 hours of gameplay for you .99cents maybe pass on this. If you like/collect iOS retro games like I do, then your probably going to like it. Just don't expect this to be another Mikey Shorts or LOE.
