 - Retro City Rampage, Nintendo Wii, WiiWare, Grand Theftendo, NES

Originally starting out as an indie experiment to see if a GTA-like open-world game could be brought to a platform as old and nadgery as the NES, Grand Theftendo won the PAX 2010 award for best indie game.

Now the game's coming to WiiWare and it's had a slightly less Rockstar-baiting name attached to it. Retro City Rampage is a glorious piss-take of just about any NES era game you can think of, and more than a few pokes at everything from Grand Theft Auto (obviously) to, oddly, the Beastie Boys' excellent "Sabotage" video.

It looks absolutely superb so if you're one of those weirdos who uses their Wii for gaming instead of sweating profusely in front of it in the name of fitness, it might be worth checking out. Screenshots below.

Yeah, it's a good laugh. Give the demo a try.

I think Gremmi reviewed it on this very site!
