I wanted to collect a group of games (inverse to Don’t Play This Game series) that surprised me, that I didn’t know about or were better than I could have anticipated.
Did you ever play those maze games you operate with one hand, usually have the cheap plastic cardboard backing to it and you’re trying to maneuver a tiny ball around to get to the end? This is the full video game version of it, but it comes with extras: a timer, ways to lose time, ways to get knocked back, ways to get stuck, it’s a deep gaming experience based solely off those cheap little games you may pack into your kids birthday party gift bags for the other little ones that show up. And I loved it. Why Did I love it? I guess in some way I always had an affinity for those dumb little games; so to build up on that experience with this game, it really hooked me. Played this for quite some time.

For the first time, looking at the cover of this game, it looks like anime gone wrong. But, turn this sucker on, you get crazy graphics, like hyper-real, fun as hell weapons, and a kung fu kid nutcase swinging through screens like Spider-Man. I couldn’t stop playing it! How Did I not know about this ?
