Oh my goodness, there's a new Hoshi Saga game. And it's in colour. But let me explain.

Star Search: Hoshi Saga 3

While it appeared a couple of weeks ago, I've only just noticed the latest Hoshi Saga game has been released. Yoshio Ishii is a wonderfully inventive man, his tiny, simple Flash games stacked with gorgeous ideas. And the Hoshi Saga are best of all, each comprising of 30 minuscule gaming morsels where you must aim to find a star. You can find part one here,…
