Ah, the storied 2D platformer. For those of us who grew up in the 8-bit age, this was often the first and most-played genre that we had access to. Bard to the Future would have fit in perfectly with those days. A simplistic, straightforward adventure, Bard to the Future focuses on the misadventures of a so-called “Battlebard” and some unlikely companions that join the hero as he travels through time. Filled with difficult jump-heavy levels, an array of enemies, and some clever jokes, this title sounds promising to those of us who grew up on the genre. Does this time-travelling tale find a place in modern gaming, or is its true place back in the early days of gaming?
