A heartfelt homage to classic monochromatic portable gaming, Save me Mr Tako! lets players choose their favorite color scheme by selecting from numerous four-color palette options. The sizes of the character sprites are also intentionally limited and the game’s original soundtrack uses chiptune instrumentation to complete the authentic retro vibe.
Save me Mr Tako! is designed by developer Christophe Galati and co-developed with Nicalis. The game is rated E10+ by the ESRB and releases today as a digital download for Nintendo Switch and the Steam platform for $14.99.
