    Review The VideoKid

    Gotta get back in time

    You don’t have to have lived through the ‘80s or the ‘90s to enjoy the familiar faces you’ll encounter in the star-filled suburbs of The VideoKid - after all, most people are going to know the Ghostbusters or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when they see them - but there’s a palpable thrill to playing a...

About The Game

Skate your way to Jessica with just one life - but don't forget to deliver those videos!

It's the 1980's. The Kid needed to earn some cash to take his girlfriend out. So by delivering pirate video tapes to his customers and staying one step in front of the cops, he quickly became... The VideoKid.

Running the gauntlet of his bogusly dangerous delivery route, The VideoKid must survive against all the odds to reach his beloved Jessica. Is today the day he'll finally reach her in time?

The VideoKid pays homage to the 1980s, and the classic videogames of that era. Harking back to a simpler time of pure gameplay, take control of The VideoKid as he hurls videos through the mailboxes, or windows, of his customers to earn cash. Dodge civilians, jump and grind cars and avoid the neighbourhood cops to stay alive. But this is no ordinary street... you may also encounter strangely-familiar characters from your past. How many will you spot?
