Developers: THQ Nordic, Slipgate Studios

Genres: Action, Platformer

Rad is a rambunctious but spirited young boy who maybe plays too many video games. After dozing off at the tail end of a long night of gaming, Rad awakens to find his dusty old console has turned itself back on. Suddenly a vortex emerges and he's sucked into his TV, where he finds himself the star in his very own video game adventure. The game brings back the 90's-era platformer with a game inspired by classics like Commander Keen, Conker, Ruff'n'Tumble & Jazz Jackrabbit. Features Weapons: Dusty arms Rad with seven radical weapons. Sounds & Music: Andrew Hulshult has created an amazing and authentic soundtrack for the game complete with MIDI-inspired music... And synthesizers! The Pixelverse: While Rad and Dusty are a great team, only Dusty can enter the electrified Pixelverse -- a dangerous spacetime-breaking region that exists beyond the game world. Classic Easter Eggs: The game features hard-to-find collectibles in sometimes even harder-to-find classic secret rooms.

The foundation for something better is still here, but Slipgate Studios has reworked Rad into something that isn't worth spending your cash on.

Rad Rodgers is a game with its ups and downs. It is entertaining, even though it does not take too much time to beat.

The crucial factor to take into account here is the sense of humour. Do you like silly, immature humour that has no respect for the fourth wall? If you don't, the gameplay probably isn't strong enough to maintain your interest, particularly in a crowded genre. If you do however, the gameplay is strong enough to maintain your interest for the length of the game, slightly short though it may be.

Rad Rodgers is a familiar yet satisfying platformer that doesn't always hit all the high notes, but it does so often enough to feel like a hit for anyone looking for a reminder of the way things were when it comes to these kinds of games.
