Through one download service or another, most people have available to them many of the games of the 1980s that inspired this game's collection. But the story mode makes this something more than just a compilation of retro-style games. It makes it an endearing tribute to games of that era and the experience of playing them and enjoying them with friends. It's appropriate that Game Master Arino's first act is to turn you into a kid. While the games here have their flaws, the kid in you who once loved 8-bit games will be won over by the charms of this knowing homage to their glory days.
