Editors’ Notes

Jump in the DeLorean time machine and head back to the ’80s, an era when chiptunes and 8-bit graphics ruled the gaming world. This sly parody mashes up everything from the open-world action of Grand Theft Auto to the sneaky stealth of Metal Gear—the classic original versions, of course. It’s also stuffed with giggle-worthy references to some of our favorite old-school games and movies. From vehicular mayhem to gun battles to hanging out with a certain gang of adolescent ninja reptiles, it’s our retro-flavored dream come true.

In my last review I said it needed a smaller display, but I found that in the options menu. Making this app my #1 app. I've been waiting for a game like this like my whole life. Now all it needs is multiplayer. And what do you guys mean by "new swimming controls?"

Terrible controls

I've been a long time owner of RCR on PC and I wanted to support the create here on iOS as well, but the controls for this iOS port is terrible.

Having a virtual joystick was a bad move on the developers part. I just hope they patch it with an option to have fixed controls, like a d-pad.

The vehicle controls are fine, as you can switch it to manual ( which gives you fixed buttons to pressed for steering and accelerating), I just wished they had done the same for regular movement. Movement and precision are two very important aspect of these kinds of games, in my opinion, and a virtual joystick hampers it greatly. An option to have it fixed to the screen would've been preferred at the least...

Until the controls are updated I would suggest you hold back on this purchase. If not prepare for some frustrating moments...
