In what is considered a really odd decision, Retro City Rampage’s official Facebook page announced that they will be releasing Retro City Rampage 486 and while it will be available for free, it will only run on computers still running MS-DOS. Also released is this picture..
Below is the official post…
I’m proud to announce ‘Retro City Rampage 486’, an MS-DOS port of RCR:DX.
It will be free for all of you which own the PC+Mac version.
It runs on old 486 PCs and requires 4MB of RAM, 3.7MB of HDD space.
While ROM City Rampage was a fun *prototype* for the NES, this is a full on Retro City Rampage DX port with Story Mode, the Arcade Challenges and Free Roaming. It proudly demonstrates once again that RCR isn’t yet-another-retro-styled game, but something that could’ve actually been released in 1989 ( this time, on PC smile emoticon )
More details to come, but I couldn’t hold the excitement any longer.
