Yumi’s Odd Odyssey is worth it for $20

I enjoyed Yumi’s Odd Odyssey, Natsume’s brave effort to finally localize an Umihara Kawase game. I applauded the effort and recognize it’s a platformer with a lot of potential, but honestly?

That something good is 2048 Infinite – The Circle of Fifths. It’s the same Threes/2048 gameplay we’ve grown accustomed to, yes, but is a more »
