Fast, faster, Speed Limit

Speed Limit is a super-fast-paced genre-morphing arcade-style action game with beautifully animated pixel art. When a disheveled stranger hands you a gun during your daily commute, everything goes horribly wrong, fast. Speed Limit is an old-school action extravaganza that will raise adrenaline levels, and test all reflexes to the max.

The gameplay and perspective change radically every two stages as you jump into ever faster modes of transport; starting with a commuter train, through a convertible sports car and all the way to a fighter jet. As the speed of the vehicles ramps up, so too does the intensity of the action. Speed Limit is fast, and it is hard. You will certainly die a few too many times but the excitement constantly mounts as you progress further into what is a game that has already garnered many awards for the development team.

Speed Limit is a must-play for all retro gamers:

A thrilling genre-switching rollercoaster that will test your reflexes
The gameplay transitions seamlessly between six different retro genres
Unlockable endless mode
Race against the clock in time trial mode
All graphics are hand-drawn frame-by-frame

Speed Limit dev on the difference between retro and vintage

Old school cool

Speed Limit is an upcoming Switch title that definitely takes an old-school approach to video games, but with some modern sensibilities. While retro-looking games might have a nostalgic appeal, they offer brand-new experiences. They also often push games far beyond what was possible on the NES.

In a new feature, dev Igor Kolar talked about how Speed Limit embraces the retro style over the vintage approach. Check out his comments below.

I try to make the distinction between vintage and retro. Vintage is something genuinely old, for example, the games we’ve been inspired by are vintage, while Speed Limit a retro game, because it should remind you of those old games. Would that alone make it an homage though? It does in our press releases because it’s what people recognize and if it comes down to one word, that’s the best way to describe it.
