Adult Swim Games has a track record for publishing slick, polished platformers. Super House of Dead Ninjas stays in my playlist, and and Super Puzzle Platformer Deluxe blends Tetris Attack-style block matching with a shooter in ways I can’t help but love.  You can add Rise & Shine by Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team to […]
