Revisit: Faif

I don’t remember how I originally stumbled across Faif, a battle-based puzzle game from Beavl Games. I do remember that the game was new at the time, and it was multiple years ago. It wasn’t even finished at the time I first downloaded it, before Early Access existed on Google Play, but I loved it all the same.

It’s safe to say I’ll be putting a lot more time into Meteorfall in the near future.
