Cybarian: The Time Travelling Warrior Review

Cybarian: The Time Travelling Warrior opens with a screen that looks very similar to old arcade cabinet “Winners don’t use drugs” screens, only in this case it says “Winners don’t use saves”.

Until I Have You Review

Have you ever wanted to go back to the 80’s and play Contra or the original Super Mario? Do you remember the frustration of constantly dying? Don’t you miss that? Don’t you miss the struggle? No? Yes? Well, I do. I remember both the angry moments and the joy that I felt when I beat a level....
