Game Overview

Trapped in the '80s, complete challenges in various retro games to escape.

Thrown back in time to the 1980’s, you are turned into a young boy and forced to play video games by an evil self-proclaimed “Game Master”, Game Master Arino. Game Master Arino will test your gaming skills by throwing various challenges at you in a wide-variety of retro games including shooters, racing, action and even an epic role-playing game - your only way to return is to defeat him in every retro game challenge he throws at you.

But you are not alone in your quest – armed with access to gaming magazines, cheat codes can be found to warp to later levels, receive unlimited continues or even become invincible! A young Arino is at your side to keep you company during your challenges, quite amused at the fact that he grows up to be so evil in the future to be the cause of your current predicament.

Test your skills with the awesomeness of the 8-bit era and prevent the retro games from exacting their revenge!

  • Experience Games in a Whole New Way – Rather than simply playing a game straight from start to finish, each game is played in short spurts to accomplish specific goals.
  • Wide-variety of Games to Keep Player Engaged – From classic shooters to racing, ninja action to epic role-playing, game play variety ensures there’s something for everyone.
  • Entire Games Available for Free Play – Every retro game that is introduced in the story is available in its entirety once the initial challenges have been completed.
  • Experience the 80’s Gaming Culture – Not only do the in-game magazines provide cheat codes, they are a source of entertainment and a virtual history lesson about the video game industry as fake 80’s news stories cover actual emerging 80’s gaming trends, evolution of software, and even the video game crash of 1983.
