Retro City Rampage: DX is the updated version of Vblank Entertainment's 2012 open-world carjacking game inspired by '80s pop and gaming culture. In Retro City Rampage, players become a hired thug who gets thrown into the future thanks to a time-travelling phone booth. The booth is damaged in the process, and the player must help Doc Choc in order to repair it and return to their proper time, all while trying to survive his former employers as well as law enforcement.
The gameplay is reminiscent of Rockstar's classic Grand Theft Auto games, complete with the top-down viewpoint and mission-based structure in an open-world city. The DX re-release features rebalanced difficulty, missions, vehicles, weapons and new graphics modes. A new inventory system has been implemented, as well as a dynamic camera with better zooming options.
