24 Caret Games
What happens when you a take side scrolling shooter, throw in a little Guitar Hero, and play it backwards? Well, you basically get Retro/Grade. Developed by 24 Caret Games, the premise behind Retro/Grade is that a temporal anomaly is tearing apart the space-time continuum after your pilot, Rick Rocket, defeated the the final Exnorian fleet boss, thanks, in part, to the destruction you caused. In order to save the universe, you have to go back in time and undo everything you did, from the aforementioned boss all the way back to chapter 1.
Basically, the game looks like a shooter, but it plays like a rhythm game. Everything is color coded, so if you’re good at hand and eye coordination or color association, you’ll likely be able to pick up and play this game relatively quick. What is really cool about it is that you aren’t confined to just using a regular controller, either. You know that old Rock Band or Guitar Hero controller you have sitting in the corner, collecting dust? You can use that, too.
