As promised, I spent a lot of time racing with the GoGoCar since last time. It took me a while, but I managed to master the race and get the gold, so I have some tips compiled and ready.
Progress was huge in Tomba this time. For a moment, I actually thought I would complete the game soon. Alas, it wasn’t as soon as I thought, but still, that’s a lot of progress! As I said it will, it all started with me searching for some more chests and then visiting the mole people.
I haven’t played a lot of Tomba lately, so this time, my write up is limited to two train rides, one of them being of the shorter kind. Additionally, the first session had me stuck in a certain area for a long time, so I made even less progress.
There’s this peculiar thing that happens to me and, I’m sure, many others while playing adventure games that I decided to “call the snowball effect”.

I finally got a chance to test what happens if you lose all of your lives in Tomba! You die and it’s game over, pretty much. After a reload, I decided to be more careful and went on to fight my first boss.
I only had another 30 minutes to play Tomba! but I managed to squeeze quite a few things into those, primarily because I seem to be more focused when I’m in a hurry.
Only a week passed since I last played Tomba! this time, so I wasn’t as lost as I was in my previous posting. Since I was only able to play for about half an hour, I took the time to tie up some loose ends.
I finally got through Grandia and I’m about to complete Link’s Awakening as well. Since I started Tomba! months ago, I decided to stick with it and complete it, before going to anything else. It’s a fun game and I’m in danger of burning out on RPGs. The problem is, I can’t remember a thing!
