Target Acquired: Save me Mr Tako: Tasukete Tako-San

Tasukete Tako-San: Save me Mr Tako, from Christophe Galati and publisher Nicalis (1001 Spikes, Cave Story+) is inspired by the Game Boy titles of old, with its simple sprites and 4-color palette... but without motion blur, and with a widescreen presentation and color themes extending beyond varying shades of pea green. The game tells the story of a war between octopuses and humans, but one octopus refuses to fight, casting off his octopussy armor and diving into the sea to save a drowning princess who was made to walk the plank. The octopus' quest sees him adventuring through platforming environments as he moves through underwater caverns, speaks with NPC's, and moves onto the surface to travel through the human world. Along the way, he is able to collect up to 50 hats, each of which offers a new ability, such as several new projectile types, increased damage resistance, and faster movement speed.

The game is now available for PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam, and Switch via eShop. Check our coverage here.
