Remember the original Failstone? Remember its lush graphics and complex gameplay? The orchestral soundtrack? Oh, you do, don't you, you blatantly lying person. There has never been a Failstone game! But why the 2 bit then? Well, Failstone 2 is a demake/love-letter to the excellent Powerstone 2, with graphics that go for that low-res, monochrome Dreamcast VMU feel and gloriously succeed. The game, a two-players, one keyboard only affair, isn't only hugely entertaining; it's fun in the retro-est of ways.
