You’d probably find Tomb of the Mask’s spiked walls and swooping bats terrifying—if you had time to think.
But you don’t. You’re too busy racing through mazes at maniacal speeds, trying to reach the exit before the beasties grab you, or a creeping wall of death catches up to you.
Together, the dazzling 2D aesthetic and simple controls create the perfect retro synergy. You can always see what hazards lie ahead (dive-bombing monkeys, flying bullets) in each neon netherworld. The trick is swiping fast enough to avoid danger and keep going.
Whether you’re braving endless mode or one of 100-plus short stages, the frenetic pace will put your arcade skills to the test.
