    An example of the format done right: It harnesses that old-school look for a reason and focuses in on a single design concept with obsessive clarity. Developer 8bit Fanatics really gets what made the best classic games great, and manages to make a hateful, hurtful game into addictive fun.

    A great experience, but not one without its flaws — and absolutely not one for the faint of heart.
  3. The game never misses a trick to punish recklessness and complacency. [Sept 2014, p.87]

    The craftsmanship is easy to admire, but 1001 Spikes can be a hard game to love. [Sept 2014, p.117]
