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.
Dusty is Rad's good-hearted but foul-mouthed, now-sentient game console. His clock speed isn't what it used to be, but what he lacks for in megahertz he makes up for with experience and attitude!
Rad & Dusty's adventure begins in the First World, taking them through seven dangerous stages of action-packed, humor-filled, hardcore platforming fun. This decaying jungle world has been infected by a fierce corruption, and it's up to the unlikely buddy-duo Rad and Dusty to save the jungle's inhabitants and restore the Elder Tree as guardian of the land.
Weapons: Dusty arms Rad with a variety of radical bad-ass weaponry. The Bolt Blaster has unlimited ammo, is easy to use, and more than enough firepower to get the job done. The Phoenix Cannon shoots out a fiery bird whose wingspan lights enemies ablaze as it flies by. There are 5+ weapons in this first chapter, with more to come.
Sounds & Music: Our composer Andrew Hulshult combined his years of musical experience (both performing and writing) with his passion for retro-style gaming to create 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 behind the game world. Dusty enters the Pixelverse when necessary to repair glitches in the running game world, allowing both Rad & Dusty to continue their journey.
Classic Easter Eggs: The game features hard-to-find collectibles in sometimes even harder-to-find classic secret rooms. Use your precision platforming skills to collect 'em all.

Rad Rodgers is a surprising fun console-style platformer that is very reminiscent of the Super Nintendo era. I grew up with games like Super Mario World and Duke Nukem 3D and anyone else who did will feel right at home here. I was hesitant to purchase given the somewhat mixed reviews but I am definitely glad I decided to try it out despite that fact. My initial impression after starting the first stage on beginner was that the game felt slightly stale, at which point I decided to try it on Normal and it became a different game entirely; far more to the likes of Nintendo style platformers in difficulty and game mechanics. I would definitely recommend for anyone interested in playing to start the game on Normal difficulty because it is my assumption that the beginner mode is intended for children. This is my assumption based on the fact that the game also features a kid-friendly content option that removes the adult humor and blood for parental control (a nice feature to have nonetheless). In layman's terms, Normal is closer to SNES difficulty levels while Hard is closer to NES.
Rad Rodgers World One is a nostalgia aimed side scrolling shooter and platformer, where you can either aim in any direction or limit yourself to the eight arcs of fire of older titles, that stars a kid who has just been sucked into his TV, a premise also seen in a few older titles. You will collect items and fight through enemies with different guns and a melee attack while trying to get to the stage exit. There aren't many levels and the game can be fished quickly, while it is a decent title it doesn't do anything particularly interesting or memorable making it more of a title you would want to buy for a low price if you have some nostalgia for old DOS style side scrollers but with more modern graphics.
