Reviews
8-Bit Attack (iSlaytheDragon): “It’s got to be one of the best 8-bit / arcade game inspired designs I’ve ever played. Working as a team, combining abilities and rolling dice to destroy your enemies one by one provides plenty of interesting choices and strategic decisions. Players will be engaged and active throughout.”

Bang! The Bullet (Everything Board Games): “It’s great for families and casual-gamer friends who aren’t looking for a serious game-relationship at this time. Definitely a keeper if you play card games a lot, or if you’re looking for something more involved.”
