Atari is once again serving us up another classic game and this one came out the year I fell into the world of existence! So it’s a young game but has knowledge. OK, this game is Down well before Downwell was Downwell. You are a ship and need to make it down to the bottom of the cave, one difference here is you cannot stop yourself from falling you can only slow your descent. Pick up new guns and shoot away at the cave walls and ledges to allow you safe passage, get healthy, and avoid the many enemies trying to stop you but honestly it’s the level itself that is the biggest threat! It’s all simple but man oh man is it difficult but also ridiculously addictive. You always want just one more go and you never feel satisfied. Gamers without knowledge of the game may well find it to be lacking a lot of mod Cons and a small pool of weapons but it is honestly a case of simplicity at its finest and it doesn’t need a load of gimmicks to keep you hooked. As with all the other Recharged games you get a banging remix of the soundtrack but I wish we could just have some history stuff chucked in whether it be the original soundtrack, box art, or even a description of it all! Oh well until then il just keep enjoying myself with one of the best-Recharged games so far.

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!
