HUNT

Playing as Destructo you will be hunting down Retronauts and eventually destroy the entire space station. Although you are stronger than those Retronauts, you will have to be mindful of their traps and gadgets. More challenging are the Securobots that spawn after killing a Retronaut. You will have to utilize your weapons, gadgets and abilities in order to be victorious.

SURVIVE

As a Retronaut you will have to work together and rely on your abilities and equipment. Even though you may be fragile, utilizing these will help you survive and complete your objective of rebooting the station. Rebooting the station will enable the security system, which will make short work of Destructo.

AVENGE

Avenge your fallen comrades, and yourself! Your game is not over if you get killed while playing as a Retronaut! You will return as a formidable Securobot. Able to protect your surviving team mates and dealing serious damage to Destructo, you can aid your team towards victory. Either try to  destroy Destructo with your weapons or aid any surviving Retronauts in completing their objective.

Customization

In Retro Rockets you are able to customize your character’s appearance, by changing colours, patterns and by swapping out parts/helmets. Customize your character to be the most awesome, bad ass or groovy!

Besides visual appearance you will also be able to change your loadout. Experiment with different gadgets weapons and abilities. This allows for strategy variations. How about a Retronaut that is less vulnerable and more beefy, a.k.a. Rambonaut. Weigh in the pro’s and con’s to create interesting playstyles.

Soundtrack

Our composer Sjoerd Limberger has done a tremendous job at creating an awesome and diverse soundtrack. The soundtrack in our game is heavily inspired by 70s disco, funk and epic, orchestral scores. Our orchestral pieces are even recorded at the Abbey Road recording studios. Music and sound effects are integral to our game and Sjoerd is the right person to get this done.
