Awesome! Go Jeff Minter!

And you old gen hardware owners - stop your whining. Technology marches on. If you can't afford newer stuff, then just suck it up and save your pennies until you can.

This is turning out to be an expensive week!

A great week, but an expensive one nevertheless!

Default Game Impressions

I've been taken back to the hey days of the Amiga with this and Speedball 2 released in such rapid succession!

While the graphics are true to their retro origin of Llamatron, I think some of these game modes are all new to Minotron.

I just played a couple of games of "Simplified" and thought it was fun allowing the AI to control my aiming and firing (at times it felt a bit odd as it wasn't always clear if we were both focused on priorities).

A great port chock-a-block full of classic sound samples!

I also love how each level throws in a new twist making it so much more than a mere half-assed Robotron clone.

I'm surprised there is not more buzz about this one.
Loved his last game...
Gonna wait for more impressions before I dive in.
