“Retro visuals have become such a staple they're beginning to feel like they're modern again, but Shaun Inman's The Last Rocket proves it's not just about the look, it's about the entire aesthetic of the game, from the simple and easy to pick up gameplay to the sounds coming out it — retro is a design principle, not just a pair of pixilated pants.” —Touch Arcade
