Gut Check: Foregone

Stop me if you've heard this before, but Foregone is an early access, side-scrolling, pixelated action game, akin to something like a Metroid or Castlevainia.   In my short time playing it I can safely say that it never reaches the highs or lows of the genre, but just ends up feeling like yet another one of "those" kinds of games, that's totally serviceable...
