Classic gaming has gotten so many love letters these past few years that its getting close to filing a restraining order. Retro City Rampage is another mash note to days of yore, but a new trailer and screens show it's more than a dated-looking game with a chiptune soundtrack.

Vblank's game has more than 50 vehicles, 25 powerups, and more than 200 ways to customize your character. In addition to loads of old-school references, there are also cameos and levels based on Splosion Man, Meat Boy, and the Bit.Trip series.

Look for it this summer for about $15 on Xbox Live Arcade, the PSN, WiiWare, and PC.
