NPPD Rush tries too hard to be an "old school" retro arcade game. The game explains nothing. There is little to no user interface.
Pretty much the only thing going for it is the controls. The mouse and keyboard controls are at least responsive. PS: there is no controller support.
What it really reminds me of is Hotline Miami. Why? The 1980s~ theme, top down shooter and the graphics. But does it play like it? No.
Basically there is one repetitive music track that plays and it's not very good. The gameplay is boring. There are no in-game options despite being developed for PC. No volume control, no resolution options, no window/fullscreen changes and etc. The graphics are very nauseating.
