Summary

Really good work out for the brain and will pad your trophy count nicely with an easy Platinum trophy. It starts off simple then builds somewhat but never elevates enough to cause concern. It’s a game you play for either just the trophies or when you want a quick distraction. It doesn’t offer any replay value or anything particularly new but what it does do is smooth and accessible

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
