WEEKLY DOSE OF GAMING NEWS: Mighty Castle Adventure, Grey, & Gelatino 2
We're blazing right through quarter one, and the games just keep on coming. We've covered our fair share of action-packed titles up to the point where the action was pretty much the name of the game.
Now we can't deny how much we love something a bit intense. Something challenging sprinkled with implied or explicit violence, you know what I'm talking about? Whether it's a side-scroller, action-adventure, or first-person shooter, best believe we'll talk about it no matter what console. So let's get to it.
We've been talking about a few Castlevania-inspired titles and even some that look to become full-blown spiritual successors. That said, we have another update for a game by yogtze, which looks to keep that running theme alive on the Amstrad CPC. Mighty Castle Adventure just might steal the show in a long line of Castle Crashing Metroidvanias.
It's nice that yogtze knows how huge the franchise has become, so coming up with something in the same vein is a win-win for everyone. We all love our Castlevania, and any game that comes close to capturing the same magic will be something we look forward to. Now this new Amstrad CPC title will hopefully be the next best thing for fans to look forward to.
So far, the gameplay looks pretty good for a side-scrolling action game, and we can only wait and see how things pan out for the Mighty Castle Adventure.

The latest doom light game to take center stage is Grey. A new action-packed title being developed by Piotr Kozka set for release in the near future. While the game is still in early development, we're treated to some map exploration with some areas requiring a door key. As a player, you'll have access to a badass chain gun, lots of ammunition, and med packs to keep you topped up and on the hunt.
It does look like a title worth looking out for, especially if you like to let loose and pop a few shots into some evildoers.
Last but not least, a quick shout out to the MSX community who've had a variety of games to play ever since and are now getting access to something more, well accessible. For those who remember the 2021 Sweet Arcade Game By Physical Dreams, you're in for a treat.
Gelatino 2 can now be played on your browser. Yes, it is indeed Alt Tab-le complete with all its colorful screens and challenging levels as you do your best to rescue 45 different bubbles across the entire game. And in case you're wondering, yes, it has all of the features that the physical edition had upon release.
Colorful graphics, sweet light effects, mysteries, secrets, a banging soundtrack, plus a variety of creature comforts to make sure you're having fun. Quite the deal, especially since all you need now is an internet browser. Something we all need nowadays. So next time you're at work or stressing over those spreadsheets, open up a new tab and taste some delicious Gelatino 2.
