Shakedown Hawaii is an old-school action game with a sandbox world for 3DS, PSV and etc.. It is a sequel to Retro City Rampage. Both projects were developed by a team at Vblank Entertainment.
The action of Shakedown Hawaii takes place thirty years after Retro City Rampage. The protagonist of that story spent last several years enjoying retirement and basking his old bones under the Hawaiian sun. During these three decades, he has grown really old and got himself a large belly. The campaign starts when dramatic events force him to take up arms again in order to rebuild his crime empire. The plot of the campaign has a slightly absurd atmosphere and mocks the most hackneyed themes of modern games.
Gameplay mechanics improve on the solutions of Retro City Rampage. The action is observed from a camera placed high above the protagonistís head, and the city structure is open. We move between locations on foot or by one of many available vehicles.
Apart from primary missions that advance the main storyline, the world of Shakedown Hawaii for 3DS, PSV and etc. is densely filled with optional side quests. While playing, the player uses a rich arsenal of firearms. Combat is enriched by the fact that the majority of the environment is destructible. The game also features economic simulation elements that force the player to manage the business conducted by the protagonistís organization.
Shakedown Hawaii for 3DS, PSV and etc. features pixelated old-school graphics. Retro City Rampage was inspired by 8-bit platforms, while Shakedown Hawaii resembles 16-bit productions.
