Zeroptian Invasion is a mix of games that all cumulate in a twist on classic retro games. It does do a good job all though you so feel like you have cheated on the originals, it’s a lot more watered down with power-ups and the way it plays.

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!
