Review: Shmubedi Boo

Don’t be fooled by the cutesy name and visuals of Shmubedi Boo – it’s an extremely challenging single screen platformer with incredibly devious level design, not unlike a non-scrolling Super Meat Boy, though far more colourful and kawaii than that game ever was.

I’ve written a few articles on tabletop games of late, with my most recent articles of that nature being a look at the point-and-click PC adventure inspired The Dungeon and the D&D-themed, fast-paced chaos of Dungeon Mayhem.
