Retro City Rampage is Coming to MS-DOS Computers

You read that headline right – VBlank Entertainment’s Retro City Rampage is getting an MS-DOS version.

While the game is nearing the status of DOOM (in that it’s being ported onto everything possible), the new (and yet retro-fitted) version will be called Retro City Rampage 486.

The game is a port of Retro City Rampage DX, the version that came with a robust suite of features not found in the original, including a full story mode, arcade challenges and free-roaming.

“While ROM City Rampage was a fun prototype for the NES, this is a full on Retro City Rampage DX port,” VBlank Entertainment said on Facebook. “It proudly demonstrates once again that RCR isn’t yet-another-retro-styled game, but something that could’ve actually been released in 1989.”

Retro City Rampage 486 is going to be free to all users who own the Mac and Windows PC version of the game. As for system requirements, you’ll need at least 4 MB of RAM and 3.7 MB of hard drive space.

    God damnit, those system requirements are just TOO DAMN HIGH. Bet Xbox One can’t run it

    (I’m joking, before anyone accuses me of being a Sony fanboy or something)

    This is really cool. I can’t believe how dedicated this guy is to continuing to provide so many free updates to a game that’s almost three years old.

    I wonder whether it will be included in the base game via a built-in emulator (like the NES prototype) or if we’ll get separate files we can install on an actual DOS system / DOSBox? At least for DRM-free versions, I think it would be pretty neat to be able to install them yourself.

    Great dev. Being following his work since Grand Theftendo and I’m happy to keep following just as long.

    Wonderful! That means we can emulate it on our phones.
