Please advise on how to promote retro style pixel game

Hey everybody,
Our small, yet super enthusiastic team has been working on a big project for the last 18 months. We are independent developers who try give this world something memorable. Unfortunately, we are constantly lacking budget and in order to keep our company alive, we made retro style game called Be Like Jack with a hope to make some money for our main project. It's a kind of a game you would play on NES in 80-90s.
We have some really small tiny budget for marketing and I'm here to ask you for help.

What you think is the best way to attract traffic and of course have ROI.
Thank you very much

I can advise you this is not the area to ask this question. Do you see any other posts like this in this section?

You could send a message to @PixelProspector , he always post about cool pixel art games on his Twitter including iOS games.

A little harsh maybe? The guy is clearly new to the forums and just posted in the best section he could find. Try being a little more helpful. In response to the question, I would say ask around in the game developer sub-forum. I don't have any experience in game marketing, so I'm afraid I can't help you myself.
