Roundabout is a game that contains roundabouts but isn't actually about roundabouts — no, a more accurate title would be: Help! I'm A Limousine And I Can't Stop Spinning.

Ok, that isn't a particularly catchy title (I've never been good at titles). But I took a break from being horribly ill to play this game because I believed I'd be a prime candidate to drive this ever-rotating limo. I've had the experience, you see. I remember fondly playing Kuru Kuru Kururin, a sort of obscure GBA title in the early 2000s, and I had no trouble getting a long rotating stick through Kuru Kuru Kururin's labyrinthine levels.

But we live in the future now, where my senses are dulled from years of existential turmoil and, despite Roundabout having a similar infinite spinning mechanic, I must admit, I'm not very good at the game.

Luckily Roundabout is extremely forgiving, letting you carry on as you smack your poor limo into strategically placed lampposts and cars. Watching my limo explode became a regular experience as I made my way in perpetual spin as you can see above.
