Have you ever been playing Dead Island and thought “yeah, this game’s okay, but it’d be better if it was a 2D, sidescrolling beatemup”? Neither have I, but Deep Silver made Dead Island Retro Revenge anyway. Say hello to Max, who sounds a hell of a lot like Black Jack. His kitteh has been kidnapped because…just go with it. This simply will not stand. So he’s going to massacre his way through all the dead corpses of California because…just go with it. It’s Jack Black versus zombies, in 2D, with leaderboards. Check out the trailer, it’s exactly what it says on the tin.

Official Press Release

Deep Silver has released today the first trailer for the all-new 16-bit side-scrolling action game Dead Island Retro Revenge.

Hell-bent on saving his cat, Max must carve a bloody path through a zombie-infested California, tearing his way through hordes of the undead, battalions of corrupt soldiers, and a slew of evil-minded ex-cons. Pull off crazy combos, collect power-ups, wield super weapons, and unleash insane magic attacks as you fight to become the amazing 16-bit side-scrolling hero you’ve always believed yourself to be!

Features at a glance:

  •        Retro look meets melee-based combat
