It’s time to drop the puck in center ice as one of the most unique roguelites to come out this year is releasing this week: the Hockey-related sports roguelite Tape to Tape!

Take charge of a ragtag group of hockey players in a roguelite journey across a mysterious land. As the newly appointed captain, every choice matters on your path to discovering the secret of hockey’s last bastion.

Combining modern precision with fast-paced 90s-inspired action, the game offers a unique experience in the form of a simcade hockey experience.
