Retro City Rampage Review | Pixelated Carnage

Platform: PC (Reviewed) | XBLA | PSN | WiiWare

Developer: VBlank Entertainment Inc.

Publisher: VBlank Entertainment Inc.

To say that there was a certain level of expectation going into Retro City Rampage would be an understatement. Tales of a four year development cycle by a single person (for the most part) and a chiptune soundtrack that garnered attention across the net several months ago made sure of that. However, the labour of digital love from Brian Brovinciano is to reach the online stores of nearly every gaming platform available, so it’s time to see whether all the effort is worth your time and money.

RCR sees the main character of ‘Player’ stomp his way through the 8-bit streets of Theftopolis in three different modes; Free Roam, Challenges, and Story Mode. The main campaign follows Player’s quest to help ‘Doc Choc’ repair a mobile time machine that looks not too dissimilar to a certain Delorean. Of course, this is just a loose excuse for the real reason to get in the game; to cause as much pixelated carnage as virtually possible. With the aesthetic of an 8-bit video game version of Grant Theft Auto, players will have an entire city to explore in the top-down perspective, but thanks to some throwbacks to come classics titles of yesteryear there is more to do than just driving over hapless pedestrians and thwarting the local law enforcement (although there is a LOT of that.)
