I just can't work out if Memento Mori Theatricks have pulled the fastest retro nostalgia scam on us or that they are a bunch of geniuses!
Despite my initial concerns of "How do I convince anyone to sit down and play this with me?", "How do I even describe it?" they've really hit on something here. The problem is that you've just got to take the risk and spend those 99 cents, because these games might completely save a rainy afternoon (or a power cut - outage).
Put away everything you've learned about using dice, stats, DMing or story telling and let the brutal logic of long forgotten insufferable computer games guide you to your death.
This is definitely a new niche. The good news is that you don't have to wait for a piece of paper to load. The bad news is that its a return to the hell of early computer games.
In summary, Memento Mori must be stopped!
But first you must LIGHT TORCH and GO UP ...
If this is your thing it's a bargain. If not ... well, how are you going to find out? You could be missing out on the next new (retro old school?) thing.
I was going to say 4 out of 5, but I'm worried that the other reviewers here know something I don't, and the PDF download will detonate and turn my computer into PET or 286 or something ...
So 5/5 for originality, value, humour and guts!
