There’s a huge resurgence in retro gaming right now, partly because those old games with 8 and 16-bit graphics are a lot faster to reproduce now, compared to full 3D titles. Another reason is that classic platformer gameplay is just so simple to engage with, yet it has a lot of potential. New games like the free Get Me Outta Here use retro gameplay and graphics to make a quick, exciting experience on mobile.
Get free, blow up aliens, laugh along the way
Get Me Outta Here is an arena shooter, so you explore simple levels while fending off waves of enemies. You take the role of a farmer who is abducted by aliens and with only a stolen gun and a hospital gown, you need to survive and escape. The game relies on touch screen controls, but they are remarkably accurate and responsive. You can rack up big combos by dealing death to many aliens with various weaponry. What really makes this game shine is a silly, hilarious story which unfolds as you go, with all manner of crazy situations, like fighting your own cow! You can also download extra bonus weapons, skins and game modes.
A very funny and gripping shooter
There are two big selling points to Get Me Outta Here, the humour and the action. Both are executed very well, though the tap controls may be difficult for some users. If you like a tongue-in-cheek game which still has solid gameplay, this is a smart choice.
