Retro Game Crunch is a frenetic love letter to classic gaming

And it looks awesome

Retro Game Challenge was one of my favorite DS games when it released because it allowed me to bask in my love of a simpler time in a new and inventive way. Retro Game Crunch is a Steam release that looks to do just that, with seven different games featuring an 8-bit aesthetic that range from puzzlers to arcade platformers.

"Wub-Wub Wescue" sounds particularly intriguing, because it features a pug (sorry, not a corgi) trying to escape a jungle with dubstep references? Lord, help me, I just can't stand dubstep, so I hope you have to fight some sort of dubstep monster or something and rid the world of its foul qualities once and for all.

Also, I think I'm gonna check this game out. It's on sale for $11.99 right now on Steam, 20% off for a limited time. Long live retro gaming!
