My shoebox arrived this morning and I opened up the seal with eager anticipation. No messing about, you know the score as soon as you lift the lid (see images below). BTW this review will contain [SPOILERS].
Lemmings Door Hanger from GB Eye and either a Pac-Man or Ghost Pixel Brick from Paladone. I’m part way through building the fiddly little Pac-Man but thought I better stop and write this article. Dropped a small piece on the floor, somehow it ended up at right at the back of my desk…. torch, ruler, squinting, fiddling…found a peanut. Boom!
These Sonic the Hedgehog Socks by Numskull will certainly make me run faster, no doubt about it. Sweet Green Hill design will clash with everything I wear, I shall be sporting these to go retro clubbing this weekend along with the epic t-shirt from Joystick Junkies, an exclusive design for this months ZBOX.
Old School Gaming Notepad by Numskull, there are four designs to collect, I got the classic Sega Dreamcast but it could have been a Mega Drive, Saturn or Game Gear. I can write down all my secret password’s and Jet Set Radio cheats in here.
Full game download of Tango Fiesta (worth £9.99) from Steam. Tango Fiesta is a top-down cooperative shooter for 1-4 players. Imagine the events from every single 80’s action film ever made actually happened to one guy – well you & up to 3 friends get to blast, shoot & knife your way through procedurally generated levels as the ultimate one (or 2, 3, or 4) man army!
The box is also very arty, with a retro gaming theme on the inside of the lid, I shall be keeping this for a special occasion. To top things off you also get a magazine and a fat free Flumes. Mmmm free foamy sweet *drools*. Overall, the ZBOX represents great value for money, you would pay way more than the £19.99 asking price to get all this tip top merch delivered to your door. Ordering the next one, I see Thundercats…. hoooooooooo!
