80’s Overdrive harkens back to an era where neon colors, synth music, and fast cars were all the rage. Players can make their way through a 37 race Career Mode while purchasing new cars and upgrades along the way or hop into the Time Attack mode for a race against the clock. Unfortunately, the track editor is a little lacking, but tweaking all the variables does result in some interest tracks. While the game can be a bit of a grind and has its fair share of frustrating moments, it’s still a blast to play, and something fans of the genre will enjoy.
Gameplay: Race as fast as possible while dodging traffic, cops, and obstacles.
Graphics: The pixel art is vibrant and detailed, and there are plenty of track themes.
Sound: Sound effects are a little harsh, but the soundtrack is great
