The game is set in a 1930s pulp adventure scenario, and players must explore procedurally generated lost temples, haunted tombs, and enemy encampments to hunt down mysterious artifacts.

Pocket Rumble by Cardboard Robot Games is a streamlined, beginner-friendly 2D fighting game inspired by SNK’s classic fighters for the Neo Geo Pocket Color. It keeps all the gameplay elements that make traditional Street Fighter-style fighters great, but is accessible enough for newcomers to learn the ins and outs without becoming too overwhelmed before putting their skills to the test at a competitive level.
