This arcade-racing throwback channels a deep love for 16-bit classics like Road Rash and Super Hang-On, packing its gameplay with old-school visuals that players of a certain age will appreciate: the road whizzing by, the pixelated sprites, the scenery looming into view over the horizon.
In Retro Highway you’re a motorcyclist going full-throttle, swerving in and out of traffic while picking up coins and power-ups. Inevitably, you can’t keep it up forever. When you crash into other vehicles on the track—or even if you hit a ramp and smash into the side of a bridge—your rider goes flying and lands with a bone-shaking crunch.
Ouch! Start again.
Each run challenges you with little missions, like using your nitro for a certain amount of time, triggering 10 close calls, or picking up a specified number of bonus items. These mini-assignments really make you think about how you play—and you’ll want to complete as many as possible to open up new raceways.
