Rad Rodgers for PC, PS4 and XONE is a classic arcade platform game with 2.5D visuals. It was developed by Slipgate (previously known as Interceptor Entertainment). The developers used the Kickstarter website in 2016 and thus managed to gather enough money to finish the PC version of the game. In 2017, thanks to the cooperation with THQ Nordic, the console editions were also released.
The game tells the story of the adventures of a twelve-year-old boy named Rad Rodgers. In the middle of the night, after a long videogame session, he notices that his console seems to spontaneously turn on. Seconds later he finds himself sucked in by and odd energy vortex and transported to another world, where he becomes the protagonist of his own game. He is accompanied by his old console, which has come to life and calls itself Dusty.
Rad Rodgers is a classic arcade platform game inspired by such series as Commander Keen, Jazz Jackrabbit or Ruff 'n' Tumble, all of which utilize the 2.5D visuals. During the story campaign you have to travel through seven worlds. The game focuses on fighting varied and dangerous enemies, which you can defeat using a wide range of firearms.
There are also other features, such as journeys to another dimension called Pixelverse, which change the gameplay mechanics. During those levels you control the protagonist's companion. Dusty's task is to eliminate the opponents, which are the represent the glitches in the game. After defeating them, new paths become available and previously invincible obstacles, which prevented you from progressing, disappear.
