Xeno Crisis and Tanglewood are coming to Evercade on a 2-game multi-cartridge

The top-down awesomeness of Xeno Crisis is coming to this really cool new handheld along with an original game, Tanglewood.
Xeno Crisis is a top down shooter much like Smash TV and others in that genre. I'm really excited to see this on the Evercade. Both games, Tanglewood included, were Kickstarted games brought over to the Evercade. I love the diversity of games that are being announced for this handheld. Very excited for this one!
