Hey guys, where's Torgo? The rule is "No Torgo, no sale". If you forgot Torgo, then I'm going to forget about you, forever.
That's because Manos: The Hands of Fate for iOS (and hopefully Android and XBLA) looks like your average, forgettable, "retro inspired" 2D platformer, with gold coind collecting, disappearing platforms, constant attacks from random monsters and giant, crane-necked bosses. There is even a shoot'em up stage complete with biplanes. Absolutely nothing about the game looks original... except Torgo.
