Crystal Castles. What a classic. What an epic.

What a stinker. Yes! People used to get excited over this sort of thing! WHY??? All it consists of is a 3-D variant of Pacman, where the hero is a strangely paralysed fluffy bear, the objects to collect are gems and honeypots, the baddies consist of an assortment of marbles, trees, skeletons and bees, and moving platforms allow you to reach higher levels of the more complex castles. SOME PEOPLE - no names mentioned, - are quoted on the insert as calling Crystal Castles "beyond description". Indeed Crystal Castles is inevitably going to be bought by some fanatics, but I reckon it was a dodo even when it was first released three years ago.

Show your maturity and pass it by.
