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.)

Retro City Rampage, the top-down love affair to all things 8-Bit, is out this week on Steam, PS3 and Vita (PSN). To watch the trailer is to thoroughly love it.
WiiWare and XBLA versions are also on the cards, release date TBA.
Retro City Rampage, a gleeful homage to all things pixelated, will be releasing on Sony consoles soon. Creator Brian Provinciano told Joystiq that PS3, Vita and PC owners can download the game later this month, with WiiWare and XBLA versions out before the end of the year. An October 9th US launch date was mentioned,so perhaps the 10th might be a good bet for us Europeans.
A one-off purchase will net you both the PS3 and Vita versions.
Retro City Rampage promsies to be one of this year's best Indie games (an awesome blend of genres set in a homage-packed city), but in an impressive coup, Vblank Entertainment has announced that it will also be headed to PS3 and PS Vita as well as Steam.Click here to read more...
