It’s a blast from gaming’s past, dropping references as often as you’ll drop bodies, but is this 8-bit GTA more than the sum of its jokes?

A parody of the open-world action genre, Retro City Rampage takes modern game mechanics and mashes them into an authentic 8-bit experience.
Equal parts fast paced arcade action and an epic mission based story mode, it’s all the driving and shooting you’d expect and a whole lot more! With missions that twist pages straight from classic game experiences, you get to re-live and rewrite history in a way only a modern anti-hero could!
When it comes to enemies, weapons are only the beginning! Put on your boots and jump on their heads! Toss ’em around to knock the rest down! Become truly unstoppable with awesome power-ups!
Through its world, characters and missions, Retro City Rampage lampoons the entire 8-bit era –from its games to the TV, movies and pop culture!
