Retro Brutal

Hella gory but its all small pixels so younger players will be ok. Brief; but brisk, visceral, challenging, and varied.
age 18+

Awesome but, incredibly violent and disturbing.

okay, let me start off by saying I know this is backwards. The game itself is extremely fun, the gameplay is great, and you can run it on just about anything. With that being said; this game is excruciatingly brutal in every aspect. If this could have earned an Adult Only rating, I would have given it to this game, just because of the level of extreme brutality. If you haven't played this game, and you are over 18 (or proper state of mind viewing age/playing age), you should. It is definitely an experience you won't forget. Back to the brutality thing... when you kill any kind of enemy on this game, they don't just fall over and die. The NPC's corpses are instead torn apart with banners of insides everywhere (85% of the time). And after this occurs, the NPC's just lie there screaming in agony. It's a fun game no matter, but what I discussed is what and how I feel. Proud daddy of a 4 month old. Career:Professional Caregiver.
