Growing up, this author would list ToeJam & Earl as one of his favourite games. That probably ages your humble host a little bit, as the funky roguelike franchise celebrates its 30th anniversary this year – bummer! Anyway, you may recall a few years back, HumaNature Studios crowdfunded a kind of reboot, called ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove. Well, it turns out the title is still in the groove, as it’s getting a free PlayStation 4 update.
Among the improvements, available now, are larger maps, groovy present hats, and new power-up combinations for you to experiment with. All of this should breathe new life into a title that’s already infinitely replayable, albeit teeth-grindingly difficult at times. Is this a series you’re fond of?
