Retro City Rampage first appears to be just like a retro Grand Theft Auto game, what with the car stealing, bank heists and pedestrians to run over. Then a thinly disguised version of The A-Team start attacking you, a bunch of mutant turtles jump out of a sewer and Bill and Ted's time machine drops out of the sky.

This top-down nostalgia mash-up is packed with pop culture references, taking in games, movies, comic books, TV shows and even videogame websites, and a lot of the game's fun is in figuring out what you're currently in a parody of. For the lazy but curious, it's almost as fun if we tell you. Hit play above for 12 of the wryest references in Retro City Rampage.
