Remember Retro Game Challenge, that DS game that contained a bunch of original, heavily retro inspired games? That DS game eventually turned into a series… unfortunately, none beyond the first made it out of Japan.
This is a bit of a sticking point for most fans of the series–those that can’t read Japanese, that is–but Retro Game Crunch is looking to give those gamers left out in the cold an 8-bit fix. Retro Game Crunch features seven pixelated games for you to enjoy, and the title’s trailer give a nice idea of what to expect:
Also, Here’s a short description of each straight from the game’s Steam page:
- Super Clew Land – Eat, evolve, and explore in this happy-go-lucky exploration-based platformer.
- End of Line – A game about learning how to die. Figure out how to thwart autonomous repair bots in this puzzle adventure.
- GAIAttack – Gaia has summoned four champions to rise up and destroy the pillaging Sky Pirates. A beat ’em up platformer for up to four players.
- Paradox Lost – Abby crashes her plane, but stumbles upon a gun that shoots time travel! A metroidvania across three time periods.
- Wub-Wub Wescue – A pug must brave the jungle and navigate its treacherous rhythms, all to rescue his master. An early 80’s arcade platformer.
- Brains & Hearts – A two player card game that takes place inside Albert Einstein’s dream. Play against the CPU or a friend.
- Shūten – A samurai shoot ’em up for one or two players. Owari’s village is trampled as ancient gods awaken. He takes up sword to end them.
Retro Time Crunch is now available on Steam, or through the Humble Store if you prefer that option. Also, the game is 20% off until May 26th, so if you’re really interested you can get it a little cheaper!
