Grab your sword & shield and your best gear as we journey deep into mystical lands with my review of SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech.

In this episode I'll be reviewing Katana ZERO, a side-scrolling action game that puts you in the shoes of a time-manipulating ninja hell-bent on figuring out his mysterious past. The game features an 80's-inspired aesthetic, complete with an original synthwave soundtrack and gorgeous pixel art.
