The Race to the Middle

Tobe’s Vertical Adventure (TVA) is a retro, 16-bit, 2D platformer, developed by Secret Base. It was released in 2011, capitalizing on the nostalgia of thirty-year-olds.

Presentation
“TVA” is apparently supposed to look like a Sega Genesis game, based on the physical mock-up displayed prominently on Secret ...
