Turbo Kid: Gameplay, Features, and More

Turbo Kid is an exciting entry to the side-scroller and pixel art genre. Despite its simplistic old-school looks, the game is action-packed matched with colorful and immersive graphics. The best part of it all is that players have lots of features to toy around with.

Players can pedal their way around the wasteland to their heart’s content. While the goal is to defeat the evil Preacher, players aren’t bound to linear gameplay. Players have the freedom to take on the challenges that await them in any order. With that said, every decision you make will change the outcome of the game.

Aside from the gory adventure, players can take on side quests such as collecting cassette tapes and comic book pages. Doing so will unlock additional features in Turbo Kid such as the cassette player and taking on new quests in a different art style.

Once players have collected at least one cassette tape, they can then use the cassette player to listen to the head-bopping music in the background. Then when players collect all the pages in-game, they’ll gain access to a brand-new story drawn by Jeik Dion.

Outerminds also made Turbo Kid a speedrunner-friendly game. Given the game’s fast-paced thrilling nature, speedrunners will likely find it difficult to resist the temptation of beating the game as quickly as possible. However, it’ll be best for them to familiarize themselves with the game first considering there are five worlds to take on.
