Rough and Tumble
Rough and Tumble is a short gameboy-styled platformer set in a robotic wild west. Mimicking the classic green-screen visuals and sound, it’s a quick but nice diversion for anyone who still feels nostaligic for the ol’ original handheld console.
In Rough and Tumble, you are a robot in the wild west with a penchant for shooting things. Being an emotionless robotic gunslinger, your health is measured by clockspeed rather than those soft, easily shootable fleshy organs that humans are so fond of. Although taking a hit won’t damage your hard robot armour, it does strain your clockspeed, and you’ll gradually slow down with each hit. Shooting enemies inexplicably speeds you up, however, so careful play should see you becoming more powerful, and ready to take on the boss at the end (which isn’t that much of a threat to begin with).
It’s only a quick one level afair, and doesn’t present much challenge, but I’ve got a softspot for gameboy games. If you’re a fan of the old green pixels, give it a quick whirl.
