If a publisher mentions “Get ready for a blast from the past with an 80s inspired arcade experience released 40 years late…” in its press release, you know we will be paying attention! We are always ready for a “Mappy-esque side-view dot-eater-y frenzy”. We are talking about “Cash Cow DX”, and it will be available very soon on Steam.
The announcement trailer for the game in question has been around for a good three weeks, and subsequently, Pixel Games announced the release date of February 16th. The game promises to be full-on 80s goodness including tough-as-nails gameplay and NO continues! So if you’re in for a challenge, check out the Cash Cow Steam page (and wishlist it). We hope to review the game onm Retrolike.net of course , but we should probably ask our own self-flagellating masochist Rob to do it for apparent reasons.
