When playing 8Days, you are punched in the face with a fist full of nostalgia. The 8-Bit style pairs perfectly with the dual-stick control and make you feel like you are a back in the retro days. The visuals are very similar to the style of Party Hard or Hotline Miami and similar titles, it works perfectly. The soundtrack is rather good as well. There is not a bunch of dialogue in the game, but the sounds and music that play during cutscenes or throughout gameplay are rather good. Not my favorite, but still good nonetheless; however, the visuals are most certainly the better of the two features.
8Days is a fun game that has a difficult side to it. It is priced at $10 USD and I could not imagine it being priced any lower, there is a full package in this indie game and I feel like it deserves that much. The difficulty adds to its retro feel and makes this title a great game for anyone wanting a modern game with a retro-inspired aspect.
