One minute you're running back and forth, just wishing you could explore new places through small spaces; The next you're sitting around all day, laying mines and waiting to bounce through crooked tubes and perfunctory breakaway bricks. What once seemed a fantastical novelty becomes an obligational drudgery for scratching up missile packs and the occasional boss. You got what you wanted, but you lost everything you had. Roll on. Roll on.
