App description: Hipster City Cycle is a pixel-art bike race adventure set on the iconic streets of Philadelphia.

Its a love letter to Philadelphia written on the stationery of retro gaming.

Pure awesomesauce.

It's like a Farmville for the barely-employed set!
-The Awl

A very cool game thats reminiscent of NES Paperboy with a nice mix of mustaches and skinny jeans...

NEVER PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN

Your mission is to liberate hipster Binky McKee from the shackles of employment, and help him achieve his humble dream of becoming a penniless cycling legend.

Nearly two years in the making, Hipster City Cycle is a labor of love featuring four unique hand pixeld neighborhoods and an original chiptune soundtrack by Patrick Todd and Joey Mariano of Cheap Dinosaurs.

They could use a better icon. And would have had much more attention if it were released in NZ on Wednesday like the other big games.

I really like this game. Wonderful retro graphics and what appears to be a lot of content.

I do wish there was an option for touch controls but I am not sure how they would work in this game.
