What’s a kid in the 80s to do when he’s short on cash but hooked on love? Deliver video tapes to his neighbors, of course! You play as Marty McFly The VideoKid, a righteously cool kid looking make some extra dough so he can treat his girlfriend Jessica to a nice dinner. With a bag full of bootleg movies recorded onto VHS tapes, you’ll dodge the cars, dodge the townspeople, and most importantly, evade the police, as you fill everyone’s mailboxes with those Blockbuster hits!
This game is very similar to Paperboy for the NES, except it takes you on a wild ride down memory lane as you pass all your favorite movie and TV characters along your journey. Grind on the hood of the Mystery Machine or even take out the aliens from Space Invaders with a few extra tapes. The references and homages to the 80s are countless and if you’re a product of that generation, you are sure to find yourself trying to name them all.
Switch Lanes: or (whichever is easier for you, but the latter is recommended)
Step 1: Complete the course while delivering 30 Tapes
There are more than 30 tapes available through the course so you’ll need to count these as you go. See 3rd Time’s a Charm for tips on actually completing the course. When you’ve done so, you’ll get a bonus of 1000 points per tape delivered, putting you well over 20,000. Save any money you earn (the costumes don’t have any benefits tied to them, they’re just cosmetic).
After you’re done with this run, you will have earned:
YOU SCORED 1000 points!
YOU SCORED 10000 points!
YOU REACHED 500 metres!
YOU DELIVERED 30 VIDEO TAPES
YOU SCORED 20000 points!
Better Late Than Never
Step 2: Complete the course 2 more times
You can ignore the mailboxes in this step if you want. Doing so will allow you to focus solely on dodging the cars and obstacles throughout the course. Your score doesn’t matter, you just need to make it to the end. As with Step 1, save any money you earn as you’ll need it to buy everything from the store.
When you’ve completed your last two course runs, you’ll earn:
3rd Time’s a Charm
Step 3: Grind money and buy all the moves / clothing options
Now that you don’t have to worry about getting to the end, you can focus on collecting all the money come across. In total, you’ll need $2487 to purchase everything. The time this will take will vary from person to person and relies on your reflexes and skills. There are multiple ways to earn money, all of which are listed under Fashionista.
When you’ve bought everything available, you’ll earn the following trophies:
You ARE The Videokid!
