So its basically a flash game?
Just wondering if it has a little more depth / gameplay than that.

What do you consider a "flash" game? It was not made for flash. I guess you mean flash game as in simple limited gameplay? This game is basically a 2d GTA (so the original) clone with a retro 8-bit throwback style and lots of references and humour to this era. It also has many mini-games that mimic gameplay from well-known 80s games.

I have to say though, you could have formulated your question better and if you read the store page you would probably not have any questions, because it is quite clear about what the game is.

As the developer, I take great offense in someone comparing it to a flash game, haha. It was in development for YEARS and has depth. It has an open world with lots to do, over 60 missions, 50 arcade challenges, plus mini games such as Virtual Meat Boy and BIT.TRIP: Retro City. You can customize your vehicles, there are over 25 weapons and power-ups. The missions vary in gameplay styles. It's not a simple/quick flash-like game.

Also, if you want to know just how much thought and care was put into the game, watch this video:

Nothing like being sold on a game from the dev himself, thanks!

no its basically GTA 2 with mods. So get it.
Zigi Jan 24 @ 12:15pm 
Yeah some indie devs are the best. Imagine EA or Activision communicating with their customers like that. Good job bripro!
Honk Jan 24 @ 12:16pm 
also the soundtrack is for real.

Thanks for sharing. Those of us who were actually alive and playing games in 1989 can appriciate this game for all its glory and hard work! Kids these days have no idea about technology from the 80's and early 90's, and can only compare it to what they know to be "FLASH" which is a far cry from 8 Bit games like this or from 1989.

I'm an older gamer who's been playing PC games since the 1980's. My first computer had a whoping 640k memory and all my games came on floppy discs. Had this game been out it would have taken up around 25 Floppy discs to install! That's HUGE by 1989 standards.

Most games fit on just one or two floppy discs. Police Quest and Codyname ICE MAN were my favorites of that time.

I had a 286 with a 21MB hard drive. PC was good for strategy, RPG and simulation, but it sucked for action games like this. So nice we get to relive the golden era of games now on our PC with lots of great indie releases.

Was this game made with gamemaker?
bripro  [developer] Jan 24 @ 1:33pm 
No, it was written in C++ and the prototype in 8-BIT 6502 assembly language.

When did "Flash" become an epithet? If a game is good fun, then it's good fun, who gives a crap how it was made?
