A solid little fun game and one worth playing if you have a spare five minutes. Its simple to play but hard to master and looks really cool. Less of a game and more a dexterity tester, It has a lot of charm despite its simple approach.

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!
