A strong confident game with some really cool mechanics, The sheer amount of collectibles and speed run options will keep you coming back for more and more, Levels are well designed and flow nicely. If however speedrunning and collecting isn’t your bag, the story is still worth a playthrough but it is a short affair.

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!
