If nothing else, you have to give credit to Locomalito for excelling at capturing the essence of aged, beloved videogames. And hell, they have the best faux old-school box art I’ve ever seen. First there was the shoot-’em-up Hydorah, and now we have L’Abbaye des Morts.
It’s a platformer in the same vein as Matthew Smith ZX Spectrum titles Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy. Sold yet? Well, it is a free download, so that’s okay. The influences are a little before my time, but I can appreciate what Locomalito is going for nonetheless.
