Pilots of Darsalon Reviews

Pilots of Darsalon is an occasionally fun love letter to games like Solar Jetman, but there’s not a lot in here besides that same gameplay loop from more than thirty years ago. Just like Dr. Kucho’s previous outing, this is something you will only truly enjoy if you are a big fan of its sources of inspiration, and if you can put up with the game’s somewhat annoying “back in my day” sense of humor.
