WARNING! This Is My First Review so sorry if i make a terrible review.
The game is a fun open world game where you play as ,,Player'' a guy who went to the future by accident.
It has a big city to explore,epic weapons and a ok story.
The only problem is the that when you complete the story there isnt alot of things to do.
8/10

This is the most 80's game about the 80's that ever 80'd. I can't think of any 80's phenomenon this game didn't reference. Maybe Alf? The game is a pretty fun 2D gta with minigames and homages to 8 bit classics. Gets pretty tough near the end of the main story, with lots of frantic old school action. There are callbacks to Mario, Mega Man, Contra, Battletoads, even Castlevania. Looking forward to the sequel!

This game is EPIC!
A Rewing into 80s culture, everything NES and old school rapped into one bad ♥♥♥ game.
If Grand Theft Auto Got Drunk and Made love to a nintendo and shoved some VHS's in there you'd have this game.
10/10
