Retro Games I'm Playing This Week

The nice thing about retro gaming is that there's always something to play... This week I plan to spread my time across a few handhelds and hopefully complete a few games.  Nintendo Switch   The Nintendo Switch is far from my favorite system but I've been playing a lot on it lately. I'm about halfway through Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster so might as well finish it up this week. I picked up the regular digital version last week on sale.

Evoland 2 Is A Great Retro Option On The Google Play Pass

I have been a big fan of Google Play Pass for Android gaming since the service first came out. It's a drastically better value than the subscription based game service setup on iOS from Apple.  Play Pass is loaded with retro/vintage options and it looks like Evoland 2 was recently added.  Much like the original game, it has heavy Zelda inspired gameplay with pieces of other genres tossed in.

Evoland 2 is longer than the original game as well. Definitely worth a look!  Normally $6.99 its free with the GamePass right now.  What Others Are Saying About Evoland 2:  https://www.destructoid.com/stories/review-evoland-2-a-slight-case-of-spacetime-continuum-disorder-309159.phtml https://toucharcade.com/2018/03/16/evoland-2-review-lets-do-the-timewarp-again/
