Defeat An Alien Army In New 8-Bit Platformer ReturnState
A new retro style platformer inspired by the genre’s 8-bit era named ReturnState has arrived on Android. Created by indie developer Jason Cecrle, ReturnState is a tongue-in-cheek action adventure sidescroller that looks like it would have been right at home on the NES where players must jump and slash their way through an army of deadly alien monsters. As a nonchalant hero for hire it’s up to players to put a stop to the aliens’ evil intergalactic General and his nefarious machinations before the wealthy planet that hired them runs out of treasure.
Players move and attack using a virtual two button controller scheme with gamepad support promised in a future update as they whip the crap out of any pixel boogeymen that stand in their way. The goal of each level is to reach the end of the stage intact which is easier said than done as ReturnState both looks and acts the part of a challenging NES sidescroller. If players want to stand a chance against the tougher levels they’ll need to gather as many gems as possible to rack up extra lives. Oldschool gaming fans will get a kick out of this Android exclusive platformer.
ReturnState is available for $4.99 on Google Play.
