PixelPerfectGaming writes: Imagine Grand Theft Auto on the 8-bit NES and you’ll have an immediate understanding of Retro City Rampage. As ‘Player’, you are a thug for hire in the crime-ridden city of Theftropolis. You’re immediately hired by a madman named Jester, who by all intent and purposes is a parody of Keith Ledger’s Joker from The Dark Knight.
The game takes little time thrusting the player into a world of crime as you race to your ‘hideout’ to plot the first crime of the day. Retro City Rampage is a parody of many different games, movies and pop culture references. During the first heist (which resembles the bank robbery scene from The Dark Knight), the game opens with a quick cinema showing the roof of StoogeMac Bank.
