"Showed at PAX East 2012 - Clever rhythm game that begins at its end credits and works backwards from there."

Reviews

“Entwickler 24 Caret Games hat eine Rahmengeschichte für ein kreatives und geschicktes Rhythmus-Spiel geschaffen. Trotz des Wahnsinns um das Konzept, und abgesehen von all den abgedrehten "Challenge Mode"-Varianten, freischaltbaren Raumschiffen, niedlichen Levelbeschreibungen und all den anderen Eigenarten, ist Retro/Grade ein schön gestaltetes Musikspiel mit komplett eigenem Soundtrack.”
4/5 – Joystiq

“Das Spiel fühlt sich wie etwas an, das viel Liebe abbekommen hat. Es gibt kaum etwas in dem Spiel, was nicht nicht witzig zu lesen oder anzuschauen ist, und dieser Grad an Hingabe lässt es aus dem überfüllten Markt herausstechen.”
Penny Arcade

“Bis jetzt war Amplitude ohne Zweifel mein Lieblingsmusikspiel. Retro/Grade hat genau den gleichen Reiz, aber es ist dieses Zusammenspiel aus einem guten Konzept und klassischem Rhythmus-Gameplay, was es zu einer rundum zufriedenstellenderen Erfahrung macht.”
10/10 – Thunderbolt Games

I played retro/grade for a few days a few months ago but now since I haven't played it in that while I'm unable to play it anymore, which is why i'm writing this review. It's a good really fun rhythm game, with an amazing soundtrack. I don't think there was a song I disliked. The object of the game is to undue your projectiles, so that you can save time or something, It's really fun, not too difficult. There are 6 difficulty settings ranging from beginner to X-treme. The campaign on normal took me 2 hours, but the other 10 hours came from the challenge mode, which were boring at first because they were easy. But then the difficulty gets so high, 5 levels away from the goal you have to perfectly do X-treme tracks, which requires a lot of repetitive practice, and if you are playing the game daily you will get that. At first if you start up the game and look at the extreme level of tracks you'll be amazed at the difficulty level, but through challenge mode you'll be impressed at your ability to eventually be able to do what you thought was impossible, so very rewarding I say. For 10$ it's a great game just for the music alone, but the gameplay is also great. If you do not like rhythm games though it's not for you. I recommend this game easily.

The story and aesthetics of a side-scrolling shooter crossed with the gameplay and soundtrack of the best rhythm games, Retro/Grade is an excellent trip.

An interesting rhythm game where you go backwards and have to undo various actions. While the main story is short, there is a really long challenges mode where you have to play the levels with fixed difficulty and certain conditions.

A wonderful blend of shmup and rhythm game. The rhythm element is definitely the stronger but the unique reverse shmup set-up gives this genre a new lease of life. You 'unplay' a level at a time - using rhythm cues to unshoot enemy vessels and unmiss enemy fire.

With a large number of different difficulty levels one might fear a speed up mechanic but so far I have not encountered this - each diffficulty level having been tailor made. This attention to detail really is superb. A combination of these increasing difficulties and the challenge mode (which varies from messing with a track's speed to having the entire level mirrored) really add replayability to the game. Creating that one-more-turn addictiveness has been pulled of well like as in many worthwhile shorter games.

A great example of easy to pick up hard to master.

I sadly haven't yet played on this with a guitar controller but with such a positive experience with this game so far it may not be too long before I get a wireless dongle to use one of those many plastic instruments I have hanging around!

TB's WTF video is well worth a watch if you want some more info and some gameplay.

Instead of shooting ships, time is running reverse in this beat based side scrolling shooter and you need to catch your old shots while dodging the shots from your enemies, coming from behind. It is a nifty new concept in an old genre.

A pretty nice sidescrolling shooting rhythm game, where you travel in reverse, recollect your shots and avoid enemies projectile coming from back. You also got Retro powerup to reverse your action. Although it relies on muscle memory, it's still quite fun to play. There are only 10 stages with 6 different difficulty for your own pace. And the challenge mode add replay value.

However, the music kinda not good enough for me. Flashy graphic make it hard to master the game on harder difficulty. Still, I would recommend this game for those rhythm game fans for its uniqueness.

A fun, if somewhat short and frustrating, game that is worth on sale. Do not buy at full price, or do if you want to support developers.

Are you bored of rainy days, and cloudy skies? Do you feel like you have too few games to play? Are you the owner of 50+ games but have nothing to play?

Retro/Grade is for you.

This game has class. Alot of it. While it's not something that you can play for hours, if you are feeling down, or you are bored, just hop into Rick Rocket's little Rocket and have a blast. With entertaining backstory, and challenging difficulties, this game could bring you that hour of pleasure you are looking for.

I picked this game up when it was at 90% sale, I'd recommend buying it on sale, because at full price, it is a little expensive IMHO.

I give this game 10/10 Banana-Raspberry Smoothies.

This game is HARD. Going into the “tutorial” level I fully understood that Retrograde is not actually a shootem’ up game, in fact it is literally the inverse. The key mechanic here is that you are going backwards through time and instead of shooting enemies, you must suck back up all the shots you fired in a precise rhythm while re-dodging the shots taken at you from behind. Trying to explain how this game plays is rather complicated but imagine playing guitar hero where the notes come from in front and behind you.

Needless to say, the game is brutal difficulty wise. After making it through just the tutorial I could feel a headache coming on from all the colors and directions my attention was being focused. I think the idea of the game is extremely unique and very engaging but I found the play experience to be dreadful. Everything was just very overwhelming and became frustratingly un-enjoyable before the tutorial level was even finished.

I like this game, but mostly because I'm really good at Guitar Hero and Rock Band - I can get 100% on most songs on expert - so this game is pretty fun on the highest difficulty. If you're not good at these types of games, there's easier modes too. It's a pretty good game and it was $1 in the sale. Definitely worth it. Although I will say that you should definitely play this with a guitar controller.

Definatly a great twist on the oversaturation Rhythm genre. A stellar soundtrack as well, purchase it if you're itching to try a fresh look at both a space ship 2D shooter and a rhythm game.

Retro/Grade is an original sidescrolling shooter as you complete your mission; in reverse.

While Retro/Grade may at first appear to be a generic sidescrolling shooter, the reverse aspect of the game leads it to be a very different kind of game indeed.

I completed the Beginner campaign, and while playing, actually found it to feel a lot more like a Rock Band/Guitar Hero game than a sidescrolling shooter. The reason for this is that you need to "take the place" of your ship before it shoots, which, in a lateral kind of way, feels like hitting notes on a Guitar Hero guitar. Which was great fun!

A fun, original concept, and a very enjoyable experience!

A rhythm game disguised as a side-scrolling shooter, or a side-scrolling shooter that plays like a rhythm game, Retro/Grade brings a refreshing twist to the Guitar Hero note catching gameplay that has long since worn thin for most people. As the cheeky Rick Rocket you begin the game at the end as you fire the last bullet into a formidable robot and save the galaxy from certain doom, only to plunge into a time vortex mere seconds later. Now you have to move backwards in time undoing your past deeds in order to keep the time continuum in tack (and more importantly Rick's reputation).

Lucky for you it seems Rick and the enemies he fought have a musical mind about them and have timed every shot and movement to the notes of songs, which is where you come in. For anyone who's played a Guitar Hero, Rock Band, or Dance Dance Revolution game this is going to feel right at home. Color coded bullets and obstacles come at you from the side of the screen, and you need to hit them in time with the beat and melody of the song to clear them. Where Retro/Grade differentiates itself is that while you are clearing your own notes (read: bullets) you also need to be dodging the enemies attacks as well, which range from lasers to giant robot legs to maze like bullet patterns and more. It's hard to truly understand just how it works until you've played it yourself, but it's the sort of idea that is so inherently brilliant that it makes you wonder how no one came up with it before.

Retro/Grade's soundtrack is atypical of the games it emulates,. A collection of electro tracks with a serious groove to them, full of catchy riffs and fantastic breakdowns, it's impossible not to bob your head to the beat along with Rick. And what music game is complete without flashy epilepsy inducing visuals? The presentation on the whole is top notch, and the little details like the way enemies reconstruct themselves as you fly backwards and bullets suck themselves back into the barrels they came from add a lot of character.

I do have one major problem, and that is there is both too much and too little here. There are only ten tracks to play, which while I wouldn't say any are bad, even the best songs become tiresome after you have heard it twenty times over a few hours. I also felt that the actual tracks dragged on longer than I would have liked, which is made worse by the repeating backgrounds going on behind you.

Going through story mode will likely take you under an hour to complete, but what is irritating is that you can't raise your difficulty without starting over from the first stage. There are challenge levels which unlock after you have completed the campaign, but here the repetition of the soundtrack becomes hard to ignore as there are dozens of challenges to complete all utilizing the same pool of songs. Had the existing tracks been cut short and a few more added I would have likely completed a lot more of them, but after a while I began to resent the game for making me replay what felt like the same stage again and again.

Because of the short tracklist it is a bit hard to recommend Retro/Grade at full price, but at a discount it is definitely something worth checking out. The basic ideas are very clever and I found it a lot of fun despite lacking much staying power. Although my preferred way to play was with an old guitar controller, you can certainly manage with either a controller or keyboard (albeit on lower difficulty settings), and each provides an interesting dynamic. If you were among the many who lamented the decreased innovation and change in the Guitar Hero games but never quite got sick of basic gameplay you will likely find Retro/Grade to be a very pleasant surprise.

A 2.5D side-scrolling reverse rhythm game set in the familiar scene of the space shoot-em-up games of old, Retro/Grade revolves around the fights of Rick Rocket against his many adversaries. After the glorious victory on the self-destructing Exnorian flagship right at the start of the game, you will be presented with the message that you won, so congratulations! Then space/time goes haywire.

Retro/Grade is a short, but fun rhythm game that will keep you entertained and challenged for hours on end with decent music playing to the beat of your un-destruction. This is a must-have for anyone into rhythm games, though too few realise this.
