Target Acquired: 198X

198X, from Hi-Bit Studios (game site), is a coming-of-age tale set in the 1980's and tied to the arcade games of that era. You take on the role of a teenager who finds herself drawn to the pixellated glory of arcade games but discovers the line blurring between gaming and reality. 198X actually includes five separate arcade-style games, each in a different genre, including a beat 'em up, a shmup, a racing game, a ninja actioner, and an RPG, and each of these games is realized with stunning pixel art.

The game is now available for PC via Steam and GOG, PS4 via PSN, and is also planned for release on Xbox One and Switch. Check our coverage here.
