Playing this game takes me back to the late eighties. A time based platformer unafraid to frustrate you is hidden behind a charming and amusing graphical style. That sounds a lot like a few ancient Amiga games I could mention. Captain Cupcake is brought to us by publisher Astraware and developer Chaos Games, a one […]

Nearly every news source in the world is at your fingertips, ready to be digesting in the instant format of RSS. Sometimes, however, you just want to relax and read a good, old fashioned newspaper.
