This Game Is A Game, God Damn!

Retro City Rampage? What The Hell is this?

This is a game bruh?

You love GTA Vice City, You love San Andreas? Ok

You love GTA V? But your PC can't play it?

Ok, now . . . . . . . . . You can try this one

The Retro City Rampage DX, absolutely like the GTA. You can do anything what you want.

You want Missions? You got it

You want Story? Got it

You dont want do anything? Deal with it

You can drive an APE and Meet with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

This game is really similar to GTA, Openworld game that is very cool. You can perform Plastic Surgery, Change Face, Tattoo, Barber.

Create chaos in the city and others.

Character is also ok, there are characters like Minecraft, everyone loves Minecraft.

And most of all I like, There is no DLC

A parody, a clone, and a Demake all in one. So how come I have more fun with this than GTA 3 or my personal favorite of the series, Vice City? Because it's a great game, with much to do. You may only get about ten hours out of the story if you ♥♥♥♥ around, and possibly sixteen hours to 100% the game, but you'll have fun the entire way, and for ten bucks, that's pretty good. ALSO; YOU CAN ACTUALLY AIM! Finally!

This game is nuts. Completely. I love it.

If it was released back in the days on Commodore64, people would still keep that ancient 8-bit machine for playing this crazy one. The other way, it is a really dense tribute to the whole history of gaming, including so many elements that I'd rather skip listing.

If you have anything coded in your DNA that makes you feel itchy (in a good mean) about raw retro and wicked stuff, just go for it. You won't be disappointed.

Very fun, actiony and the like. Plot was a bit hard to follow, and totally irreverant, but it IS a parody.

This is a fantastic game, although I don't usually like indie games going back to the 8-bit era, just cause it looks like ♥♥♥♥. This game is very good though and I highly recommend if you can get it for a buck, even your old Windows 3.0 can run it through DOS, I;ve had fun trialing it in DOSBOX and it works flawlessly, very good port.

I haven't played this game. I only played for the minimum of 5 minutes so Steam would allow me to write a review.

I've bought it because I saw two videos from its creator explaining how he managed to port this game to NES and 486DX and also compress all its assets to fit to a 1.44 floppy disk.

I wanted to find a way to donate my money to him, so ladies would find him more attractive, thus raising his chances of having offsprings.

Our world would benefit greatly from his genius offsprings. Please buy this game so we can have more of them in the future.
