7th Sector Review

7th Sector Review…

“This city is an empty glass. Words do nothing. No one sleeps.”   Y’know what puzzle games need? Visible spectacle! Forget fancy gimmicks and sharp writing, shove it all in an environment that would be more suited to a 90s anime. Yeah, that sounds like a surefire winner, and…

“I feel the demons rage, I must clean them all away.”   Y’know what Pinball reminds me of? Blackpool piers, with that bloody Who song playing in the background. The way the chiming guitars clash with the florescent lights the town is known for. The smell of last week’s…
