The 1980s just has something so special that the “80s or 90s kids” just seem to love. Objectively speaking it was ... terrible. The hairstyles were ridiculous, the fashion was awful, and the music was questionable. Yet everything just has a certain kind of charm that is indescribable. Now, Indie developer Tap Tap Good wants to pay homage to this glorious period with their upcoming Super 80s World. Check out its trailer below.

Now let’s make it clear: Since the 80s are full of bizarre stuff, Super 80s World is also not going to take itself seriously, and neither should you. In this game, you will be Dan Camaro, who is trying to stop the nerdy Dr. Noid Wormser from using his invention to wipe out the 80s – his most hated decade – from existence.  Yes, the “rocker vs nerd" stereotype is present here too.

In term of gameplay, Super 80s World is a runner/platformer in which you’ll traverse five levels, each of which is themed after a year of the first half of the 1980s. In the process, you must collect data containers such as audio cassettes, VHS tapes, and video game cartridges so as to prevent that year from getting deleted. All of the items you collect are references to many popular ’80s movies, games, and songs from the real world. To make things even more entertaining, Camaro will give some humorous comments on them as well. Here’s another trailer for you to see the gameplay in action.

As you can see, the game gives you a wide variety of moves to unlock and perform, such as dive bombing, double jumping,  and even teleporting. Whether you’re a fan of the 80s entertainment content or not, Super 80s World seems like a really cool title that you should not miss out on.

The developer is planning to run a beta test for the game in the coming weeks. Right now, the game is scheduled to come first to iOS on April 18, but Android and PC versions are also being worked on and will probably come out sometime after that.
