Halloween Forever is a game that plays and looks like an NES game, a platformer where you jump and shoot your way through a set of levels and then face off against a boss. You can find alternative paths which mean you can miss bosses or find other ones.its a solid game with a high difficulty bar, the music sucks after five minutes as it never seems to change, Boss encounters are varied and challenging. I wish you could save or continue but as it is, gamers of all backgrounds will get something out of it.

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!
