Summary

Ravva surprised me with its charming engaging gameplay. What I liked was the Nes style atmosphere coupled with the cool element switching mechanic. Ravva And The Cyclops Curse is one of those games that when described sounds kinda plain, kinda already done but the production value is high and they make it so playable that you cannot help but play and enjoy this title. I sat there and played for hours in one sitting as I just loved how well it played. A clever charming game is full of challenge and charm.

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!
