    It may not be a new game, but Avenging Spirit isn't exactly your typical platformer and remains just as fun now as it did back in the Arcades.

    This is a title that focuses primarily on the fun inherent in the concept of possessing enemies. Whilst it most likely won't be appearing in the top 25 any time soon, it certainly is not one to dismiss instantly. For your money, you will be getting a hearty slice of retro-styled enjoyment of the kind that is not particularly prevalent anymore.

    It's not a long game but there are two endings at least and the variety of different things you can possess extends longevity.

    Avenging Spirit is silly as all get-out, but technical issues get in the way of the fun.
