“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
