Go Series

It’s an odd proposition: take a beloved series with a legion of adoring fans, and strip out the gameplay people admire, then re-purpose it as a turn-based puzzle box.

Each title championing sound and art, the series has clarified, cut through, and captured the character of its console cousins perfectly. So just how have they pulled it off?
