Who doesn’t love the simpler 8-bit days? Donkey Kong, Centipede, Super Mario Brothers… you remember the classics. Well dust your thumbs off because there’s a new classic that just hit the internet. Introducing True Romance, a side-scrolling action game for Minnesota rock band Motion City Soundtrack.

Battle robots and dodge deadly rats. Slam an energy drink or power down to a cold beer. Capture True Romance and get some action. Beat the game and unlock an 8-bit version of the song, and if you collect all the clothing items you can enter to win some sweet swag.

The game is built entirely in HTML5 and rendered in canvas using the Impact JS framework. And because pride matters we added a Twitter powered leaderboard. Do you have what it takes to make the board?
