Welcome back. Last time, we battled the forces of Frankenstein and the demon "Y". And in both cases we failed miserably.

Retroulette Spooktober Spookstravaganza - Part 1

It has been too long, my friends. Many moons since I last delved into the festering pile of forgotten games.

Without my free will, I continue,
Staring, staring into this abyss.
But we must face our fears! I have gathered here a small sampling of games that will test our resolve.
