It is the year 198X. Big hair is hot, and the war with the Soviets is colder than a refreshing glass of New Coke. RAD RAYGUN must travel the world fighting communist robots, and save the 1980′s by shooting his way through the decade in a totally fresh, expanded version of the original XBLIG game.
SUPER RAD RAYGUN pits Rad against a whole new wave of deadly enemies and locations – from the Communist strongholds of the Far East to strategically insignificant islands off the South American coast. But chill out, because Rad has gnarly new weapons, upgrades, and a revamped gameplay engine to help him out.
Ultra sharp 144p resolution graphics and 4 unique shades of monochrome off-green bring Rad Raygun to life, as only 80′s mobile technology can.
Super Rad Raygun is a nod to video games and pop culture of the 1980s and pokes fun at the politics of that era. It is a trip down memory lane for retro enthusiasts, while also incorporating modern systems and play mechanics familiar to today’s gamer.
Super Rad Raygun is a follow-up to the Xbox Live Indie Game, Rad Raygun. Led by Ronald Reagan and Dr. Yokoi (Dr. Y), Rad Raygun must save the 1980s from communist robots! While the original Rad Raygun had only five levels and limited upgrades, Super Rad Raygun includes over twenty levels, 3 modes of play, a new upgrade system, and a limited-energy mechanic.
As a play portable gaming’s limited battery life, Super Rad has a limited amount of energy to perform certain abilities, such as jumping, shooting, and dashing. When Rad depletes his energy, he must rest for a few seconds.
Throughout the game, Rad collects “bits” — these are a form a currency used to buy upgrades from Dr. Y. As Rad becomes more and more powerful, he consumes more and more energy, but thankfully Rad can upgrade his battery life (amount of energy) and his agility (time it takes to recover).
