THANK YOU FOR LISTENING

“I played Tobe's Vertical Adventure with my son when he was 13. I

remember going to my best friend's house after school when I was 13

and playing Nintendo games with him. It reminded me of those days.

Some of the coolest days were playing games similar to TVA. I won't

lie, I do miss my childhood but this game brought it back to me for a

few hours, along with my boy.” by Pops
