Godzilla Defense Force (Android)

There’s no other Godzilla videogame that understands the futility of fighting radioactive beasts better than Godzilla Defense Force. Every run is hopeless; that’s by design.

Said sight is better than what’s planned… Continue reading Ghostbusters Puzzle Fighter (iOS)
