Review: Save me Mr Tako: Tasukete Tako-San

November 10, 2018 1 min read

Save me Mr Tako is modeled after the catalog of a big, old, battery-sucking brick called the Game Boy. Everything about it is an homage to that long-gone era in gaming right down to the default green colored background. As someone who spent countless hours with that system, it's tough not to smile whenTako's title screen appears.

There's no drought of developers looking to milk our nostalgia bones dry, but that didn't stop creator Christophe Galati from trying. He spent years working on this passion project, and it really does show. However, passion doesn't necessarily always equate to quality. There's some great stuff here, but it's not without its faults.
