WBSC eBaseball: Energy Professionals ($0.99)

Sure, that value is right. Konami desires to deliver the Energy Professional model international, and that is their approach of doing that.

To kick issues off this week, Hamster is releasing the cardboard sport Magical Velocity. Initially launched in 1994, it’s a variant of the cardboard sport Velocity that was solely launched in Japan again within the day. Good vibrant visuals, however I’m undecided I’m all that on this one personally. Nonetheless, it’s good to see extra obscure releases given an opportunity to shine once more.

Use your magic pistol to fireplace off a wide range of spells and see how far into the crypt you’ll be able to descend. You’ll earn upgrades as you go that will help you sustain with the hordes.
