Aside from indie devs sucking each other off, having Epic Meal Time in the game and stupid ♥♥♥♥ing memes it's a pretty rad video game.

This game is great. You can really tell it was a labor of love for the people who wrote it. Not just for the (actually amusing, which is rare these days) references but the art and completely pointless but still great settings like arcade screen borders and color style. I wish more games like this would happen. Too often we get 8 bit ♥♥♥♥ with bad art and content that hides behind the excuse of "but teh retro". This doesn't. It's actually better than the original GTAs.

Also the music is awesome.

GTA 3, but with even more references, and it can get 60 FPS on my toaster oven. 5 stars.

Punheta referencial. Chega a ser irritante a quantidade de referências óbvias amontoadas desesperadamente. A jogabilidade ficou em segundo plano, então falhou no que deveria ser o fator principal em um jogo que é uma suposta homenagem aos 8 bits.

This game is all sorts of crazy. Any fan of 80s pop-culture will get a kick out of this game. The gameplay in itself isn't anything amazing, but you come for the aesthetic and the humor which it has plenty of. A pretty large world all things considered with many challenges for you to complete.

8\10!
Hard game, looks like a gta. But that is wrong!
Pixel game, where are you need to run, kill, wroom-wroom, and destroy!
A lot of easter eggs, missions and more!
I really loved it and recommend it!

This is probably as close to an 8-bit GTA as I think we're ever going to get. I love the open world environment in this with this particular art style, and it's nice they included a sandbox open-world mode for those who just want to mess around with everything. Another thing I like about it is the vast array of parody included in it. Everything from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Batman. If they can make fun of it, I guarentee this game already has. Great to play

I love what happened here. Though I was slightly disappointed by the game. I think I must be just gettimg old at 33 years. I would have loved this at 15 or so. I still enjoyed it. I love all the heart the author has put into it and it's not easy to make something like this and complete it. Mad props! Great work.

Very fun if you grew up in the era all of the references come from. It's nostalgia crammed into a game.
