Rise and Shine is a Shooter Stuffed With Easter Eggs
Taking the pistol
Rise and Shine is a retro-themed 2D shooter from Adult Swim, but don't be fooled by its cutesy cartoon graphics. It's a challenging retro-styled game in the Contra mould. See how many sneaky videogame easter eggs you can spot in this Rise and Shine footage while we play.
The game is absolutely stuffed with nods to classic videogames like Space Invaders, Half-Life and, um, Flappy Bird. It's also retro themed in that it features insta-death traps and enormous, screen-filling bosses that require precision skills to take down. Precision skills that we have clearly long since forgotten.
