If there was one thing that made retro gaming great, it was the simplistic game designs. Never was the player forced to learn different key combinations or gestural controls to play a game, it was just easy and straightforward to understand. While this may not seem like a big deal to some, the newly released Ice Tales is a return to form that is very welcome in my eyes.
Embracing the day when you didn’t need a Ph.D in physics to solve a puzzle, the game combines streamlined mechanics with an amusing eight bit soundtrack to create this generation’s version of retro goodness. What is old is new again, and this game is here to prove it.
On top of everything else, if you become a fan of the game on facebook, you can get the opportunity to win one of five hundred free copies of the game. If that isn’t a good reason to support a title, then I don’t know what is.
