The Best Platformer Award of 2018 Goes To:
“The Switch-up in styles impressed me big time. A 8-Bit/16-Bit hybrid, filled with well written humorous dialogue. Truly one of the year’s best Soundtracks. The Messenger throws everything it has at players. Thrilling boss battles, rewarding upgrades, and well designed levels. Area’s will test your patience, while unlocking your hidden Ninja Skills. It feels like an old school Ryu Hayabusa adventure, yet it stands on its own.” – KJ
