Summary

I mean I like bad games I like them a lot, I like to find bad games and try to force some love on them. Here this cannot be done, The game is not even a game at this point. I just cannot fathom how something like this comes out. I hate to bash people as making games isn’t easy but here we have zero effort really. You cant even say it has easy achievements so its good for that! Its just bad from start to rage quit. I took some video and even then I couldn’t manage more than five minutes. Don’t waste your time, In fact, just reading this review has wasted enough of your time.

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!
