What started out as a side project has turned into one of the biggest trips down memory lane for anyone who grew up in the 80s or 90s. Retro City Rampage pays homage to countless movies, TV shows, and video games from decades past, all wrapped up in an 8-bit package. The nostalgic setting and pop culture humor though make Retro City Rampage a game for a specific type of player.
There is a lot to like in Retro City Rampage, but only if you have been playing video game for the past twenty years. You’re liking of the game will be directly correlated to how much you know about other popular games. That being said, the gameplay, while varied in the stages, ultimately break down to the same task over and over again. But if you can get past all that, you’ll enjoy your time in Theftropolis!
