Wreak havoc in in the open-world of Retro City Rampage! You’ll meet a variety of very familiar characters, including a certain time-travelling scientist, engage in various modes of gameplay such as stealth, platforming, early coin-ops, and even encounter radioactive plumbers who await with eager anticipation their chance to murder and masticate you, The Player! But, wait, there’s more! Stomp on hapless pedestrians like they are Goombas and claim your coin. While you are taking the world by storm, you’ll encounter a few guest stars such as Super Meat Boy, Splosion Man and Ms. Splosion, and BIT.TRIP Runner. Last but not least, you’ll be able to tear through Minecraft for even more crossover goodness!
You are out on a lovely jaunt of CRIME CAPERS when you were ambushed by the EVIL GOOD GUYS, who will stop at nothing to end your RAMPAGE OF DOOM throughout Theftropolis City. Retro City Rampage is a parodic paean to old-school gaming and the culture of the 80’s, referencing many classic game experiences while providing modern-day open-world mechanics, all wrapped in glorious 8-bit graphical goodness.
Are you a bad enough dude to defeat the EVIL GOOD GUYS?

Back to the Future is my favorite movie so you would think I would like this game, and I fully expected to. But as I played more I noticed I wasn't laughing much and missions began to feel like a chore.
The game plays a lot like the original Grand Theft Auto (for the PS1), which I also didn't find very engaging. Ultimately I think YMMV, and this just didn't have the same smileread more factor that I got from games like Double Dragon Neon.
For reference I'm 32, which seems to be right in the middle of the target audience for this.

This game is a love letter to your childhood. If you're in your late twenties to mid-thirties, this game is made with you in mind because you will get the references, and you will be smiling through every second of it.

80s childhood. Play RCR and you will remember all the good days again.
The game itself works flawlessly on a netbook (despite of little black borders) and the game itself is only 28MB small. Not as small as Grandtheftendo would be on an NES cartridge, but damn small for a "new" game!
RCR is retro gaming at its best: Plenty of challenges, 2D-GTA gameplay, tons of references (Backread more to the Future, Star Wars,...) and a hell of a fun game! $15 is a bigger amount then it spend usually, but in this case, every little penny was worth it!
