Do you miss waking up early on a Saturday morning, pouring yourself a big bowl of sugary cereal, and settling in front of the television for hours of animated adventures? Look no further than Saturday Morning RPG, a game that will transport you back to those simpler times.
Saturday Morning RPG was released in 2012 by indie developer Mighty Rabbit Studios. It takes inspiration from classic 80s and 90s cartoons and video games, paying homage to beloved franchises like The Transformers, GI Joe, and The Legend of Zelda. The game follows the story of Marty, a high school student who gains the power to use everyday objects as weapons after being struck by a mysterious bolt of lightning.
As Marty, players must battle against his nemesis, Commander Hood, and his army of evil minions. Along the way, you’ll encounter familiar faces from your childhood, such as the Care Bears, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and even Mr. T. The game is separated into five episodes, each with its own unique storyline and references to popular culture.
Saturday Morning RPG is a turn-based role-playing game, with a combat system that will be familiar to fans of the genre. Each battle begins with a “Power Meter,” which determines the strength of your attacks. The meter fills as you take damage, or you can use items like breakfast cereal or action figures to charge it up. Once the meter is full, you can unleash a powerful attack on your enemies.
In addition to standard attacks, players can also equip “Totally Radical Badges” that give Marty special abilities. These badges can be obtained by completing side missions or purchasing them from vending machines scattered throughout the game. There are over 60 badges to collect, each with its own unique gameplay effects.
No Saturday morning experience would be complete without a killer soundtrack, and the team behind Saturday Morning RPG delivers on that front. The soundtrack is a perfect blend of 8-bit chiptune and synthwave, with catchy tunes that will immediately transport you back in time. The game features original compositions from Vince DiCola, best known for his work on iconic 80s films like Rocky IV and The Transformers: The Movie.
The Nostalgia Factor
Saturday Morning RPG is brimming with nostalgic references and Easter eggs that will delight fans of classic cartoons and video games. From the music to the character designs, the game oozes with 80s and 90s vibes. The developers even included a “Saturday Morning Cartoon” mode, which adds intentionally poor VHS tracking and commercial breaks between gameplay segments, further adding to the overall nostalgia factor.
Saturday Morning RPG is available on all major gaming platforms, including PC, Mac, Linux, and mobile devices. It’s the perfect game to pick up for a quick trip down memory lane while waiting for the bus or during your lunch break. And with each episode only taking a few hours to complete, it’s a perfect game for busy gamers.
Saturday Morning RPG is a gem for anyone wanting to relive the carefree Saturday mornings of their childhood. Its charming retro graphics, fun gameplay, and nostalgic soundtrack make it a must-play for fans of classic cartoons and video games. So grab your controller, pour yourself a bowl of cereal, and get ready for an epic adventure through time.
