Retro Revengers is a 2D platformer game that offers a nostalgic NES feel with its pixel art graphics and chiptune soundtrack. The game, which has a download size of 244.1MB, features full controller support, Steam achievements, and local leaderboards for each of its five difficulty levels: Easy, Normal, Hard, Expert, and Insane.

The gameplay involves screen-by-screen progression with MegaMan-like transitions and big boss encounters. Each level is timed with a five-minute countdown that refreshes upon entering the next screen. The levels also contain hidden treasure boxes and slight puzzle elements.

Players can choose from different members of the Retro Revengers, each offering unique attack styles and charge-up attacks. The game also allows for control rebinding, although it’s worth noting that the controls display keyboard buttons even when using a controller.

Despite its engaging gameplay, Retro Revengers does have some drawbacks. These include a persistent on-screen mouse cursor when using a controller, harsh knockback from hits, and enemies that can attack from off-screen. Additionally, the game lacks tutorials and some characters may make gameplay more difficult due to their weapon types.

The game is relatively short, with a playthrough achievable in under an hour. However, replayability is enhanced by the option to replay levels and unlock the ability to switch between characters in subsequent playthroughs. This feature adds depth to the levels by revealing hidden areas.

In summary, Retro Revengers is an easy-to-get-into platformer that successfully captures the essence of classic NES games while offering modern gaming features and despite being short it does a job and is fun to play.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
