Lococycle Review

wallpaper_4_-_Splosion-smallTwisted Pixel is a company I certainly gained a fondness towards during the time where the Xbox 360 was my platform of choice. Their games were fun and creative and each offered something new while remaining consistently enjoyable. Though when it came to Lococycle, the reception was pretty cold from the majority of outlets for reasons I did not read, as I knew I’d pick the game up when it was cheap enough, and $2 is the cheapest I could hope for.

So let’s do it with four of Twisted Pixel’s five titles, I am unable to even play Gunstringer, so let’s just look into their first title, The Maw.
