About Retrowave

About this game

Neon lights, palm trees, synthwave, '80s supercars speeding down an endless highway... Welcome to the world of Retrowave!

Listening to Synthwave / Retrowave most people have had this feeling of nostalgia for an era they didn't know or that never existed.
The Retrowave is very much inspired by the '80s but is mostly an idealized futuristic version of the '80s.

This game offers the player the unique experience of being immersed in this wonderful world for at least a few moments...

In Retrowave you will first start with one car, then you will be able to upgrade it or buy other cars with the money earned at the end of each run.
Race your car through different unique worlds!
Watch out for other vehicles on the road (yes, even in the future there will be traffic).

Retrowave offers above all a visual and sound experience that will delight fans of the genre and will surely make those who don't know it yet discover this wonderful universe...

Features:

  • No less than 10 cars!
  • More than 5 different universes!
  • 4 different game modes!
  • A unique retro-futuristic atmosphere!
  • More than 45 different synthwave music!
  • Purchase system of car performance upgrades!

It's not special to me. Nothing new. Another game pretending to be retro

My inner 80's child is totally in love with this game. The colors, the aesthetic... the music! It even has music by Ninjacat <3 Go for a nostalgia ride. 10/10 worth it. And relaxing!

Retrowave is a simple game about driving cars and nearly avoiding them in a synthwave or 80's setting. The game has many modes that make the game more accessible and lets you play how you want with a fair amount of customizations. My gripe on this game is that the achievements are time wasteful and that to get them you might have to play through the game way more than the average player would want with the game.

This is the game for anyone who loves the vaporwave/retro-futuristic aesthetic and that's all you need. The gameplay is minimal in what you do, but I think that's the whole point of it. The soundtrack is phenomenal and it's a perfect game for late nights when you just want something to take your mind off things. It's super worth the price, even if you only ever play it once.

So simple and so addictive, it was love from the fist play. The only downside for me is that the game is playable with controller, but there's no settings for it in the menu. I hope they fix this with the next update and maybe new DLS's with more maps, cars and 80's music?

Nice game to spend a few minutes on here and there, nothing to capture your attention for longer though. The driving is okay but there are a few annoying decisions/ style choices that bug me. You can buy a police siren, in theory a nice touch but if you have to listen to the thing blase into your ears for the whole ride..? Ehhh no. Once you added the siren to a car there is also no way to remove it. The controls are often a bit janky and I cannot figure out why sometimes I crash when slightly touching a car, sometimes everything is fine, sometimes I start ramping over cars. There are also often situation where you HAVE TO crash because there are cars on all lanes and you can't get past them. Also a lot of gind for the better cars and some achievements.

So far, playing it has been really interesting. Although a simple game, the visuals and car selections are great. I went ahead and purchased the expansion pack as well. I love the retro 80's feel of this game.
