Actually, Retro Game Crunch is an anthology of seven games that look like they’re from the 80’s, but aren’t. It might be said that some are growing tired of the retro aesthetic.
Honestly though if we’re going to preserve anything from the 80’s it might just as well be this. If you look back, the whole decade really didn’t have much else going for it.
Also, if these really were games from the 80’s they’d look really bad on your computer monitor, original copies would more than likely be embarrassingly expensive, and you’d have to spend five minutes blowing into the cart just to get it to work.
In case your curious the seven games included are:
- 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.
