Tamarin Review


  • A lot isn’t explained.
  • Hard game to pick back up after a long break.
  • Can die in water, and quickly.
  • Catching the fireflies are annoying.
  • A lot of back tracking.
  • Game feels a bit flat with not a lot of action.
  • Feels more like a game about collecting than anything else.
  • Combat is way too loose.
  • Little variety.
  • Platforming is not that fun.

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!
