I like these kinds of racing games, they’re really fun and not many people are making them, so it’s cool to see someone is supporting this genre. Overall it controls well and it looks good, there’s only a few little complaints I have with it. For the aesthetics, when you’re playing in classic mode the speedometer isn’t pixelated, the font isn’t very good looking, and I think the background is always a snowy mountain and pine trees regardless of what level you’re on. For the gameplay there’s not much to change, drifting would be great addition because slowing down to go around a sharp turn is really unsatisfying, that’s really it. The music is empty sounding and none of the songs made me exited to drive. I think I heard all the songs, tracks don’t seem to have their own music, it just picks a random song from a little library, if I’m wrong then maybe the songs sound really similar.

This game is a throwback to the racing games of the 1980’s (hence the name).

There’s no fancy graphics, no relistic handling, no gears to worry about, just straight out race to complete each stage before the time runs out.

There are a handful of pleasant chip style tunes and sound FX, both of which can be toggled off if desired.

Control is by keyboard, or use a utility such as Xpadder to map the controls to your control stick/pad of choice.

The game is very easy to play and FUN. Good for a quick game when you have a few minutes or even an hour or two, trying to beat each stage.

MY 1980's DASHBOARD on Steam

Super Star Panda

Super Star Panda

Super Star Panda is one of those little gems, hidden in vast and wide Steam. It has a very unique and nostalgic ‘vibe’ of video games from my youth. You know, Amiga 500, NES, Gameboy and others. It’s simple, but not easy.

You can play it for 5 or 50 minutes and you’ll always get a dose of fun. Its not something that’ll make you skip the night, but it will make you keep coming every now and then. Kinda like Bejeweled, Zuma or Desktop Dungeons.

I initially bought this for my 7yo son (there are virtually NO video games on Steam, for his age range) but I ended up playing the game myself lol. And for one buck this really is no-brainer.

Fun, casual game with animals floating in outer space.

It mellowed me out after work. Well, I mean at the beginning, because it’s getting pretty challenging after a while :D.

The style reminds me a lot of good old retro flash games, and the music fits quite well.

There is a fine option to play with the keyboard, and also a secret second option to play with the mouse, that is freakin impossible hardcore.

Love to see more from the dev!

Raid on the Zone

Raid on the Zone

Been playing this a couple of times now, and I’m very fond of it being so close to the original Raid on Bungeling Bay, even though it has been enhanced with more intelligent AI, which also makes it a bigger challenge. I haven’t beaten it yet, but I’m going to! Lots of good gameplay and replayability. Recommending this for everyone who likes to shoot stuff and have fun!

I really enjoyed this game as it resembles the old Raid on Bungeling Bay, which I have enjyoed a lot as a kid. The game is hard but loads of fun! :) Highly recommended for anyone with a trigger finger.
