Great little brain teaser, Road to Ballhalla is a solid experience that challenges you at every roll, I found myself getting a bit fatigued towards the end as every level started to feel the same but overall it was a nice little experience which a lot of clever levels designs mixed with brain taxing obstacles. In short, its good brain food and a lot of fun to play even if it is short lived and can get a bit samey.

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!
