Description

Hit the Retro Highway and return to the days of blast processing and pure arcade fun! Retro Highway is a throwback game aiming to combine the accessibility of modern titles with the high-skill challenge and charming aesthetics of old.

History

Retro Highway was developed by Gearhead Games, a tiny international company by Nicolai Danielsen in collaboration with Constantine Berg. They met on TIGForums and teamed up for a ‘quick collab’ which subsequently turned into their longest development endeavor so far. Even though some people may tell them that they’re doing a good job, they actually have absolutely no idea what they’re doing.

Features

  • Experience high octane old school action on your phone, tablet or console
  • Complete daring challenges and compete with your friends or the whole world for the highest scores
  • Explore six unique environments ranging from a hot desert to a futuristic moon base
  • Customize your playstyle by choosing from a diverse garage of 10+ bikes and by upgrading various powerups
  • Embrace the nostalgia rush caused by stylish pixel art visuals and chiptune soundtrack
