Hi Mobeeuz
Yes the 2 styles of graphics are available. You can just choose the one you prefer from the options. Also if you want to give it a more retro look you now have the possibility to make the background fully black like in the good old days! See screenshots here [cpc.cx] and here [cpc.cx].

Is it possible to play with the 2013 graphics instead of the goofy bobblehead 2015 version? One looks like a serious remake and the other a cheap phone game.
