Looking like a long-lost creamed-spinach-colour original Game Boy game, “Rad Raygun” is full of ’80s-inspired humour (and a narrative that suggests an alternate reason for the fall of the Soviet Union). Whether you’re a child of the ’80s, or simply know a fair bit about that decade, you’ll likely appreciate most of the humour. You may get a kick out of the narrative too, of Rad Raygun fighting Soviet robots.
Levels and enemies are pretty varied, there’s lots to collect, and the game has real authenticity for your 80 Microsoft Points.
Here’s what the developer (TRU FUN Entertainment) has to say about the game:
“It is the year 198X. Big hair is hot, and the war with the Soviets is colder than a refreshing glass of New Coke. RAD RAYGUN must travel the world fighting communist robots, and save the 1980’s by shooting his way through 5 decade spanning levels. Ultra sharp 144p resolution graphics and 4 unique shades of monochrome off-green bring Rad Raygun to life, as only 80’s mobile technology can.”
