  • The first five minutes are just a constant bombardment of *tutorial* pop-ups.
  • Shoveling is tedious.

  • The music is very bland and not that energetic for the tasks at hand.
  • No timer on the screen.

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!
