UFO Interactive Games today announced that Retro Pocket for the Nintendo DSiWare service, is scheduled for release September 20th on the Nintendo DSi Shop and Nintendo eShop.
Designed and developed internally by UFO Interactive, Retro Pocket travels back in time, to an era when handheld LCD games were all the rage. Portable LCD games were simplistic, challenging and fun, and presented gamers with an ideal way to game on the go. Retro Pocket revives this era of portable gaming by delivering eight all-original retro-style games packed into one downloadable title.
In Retro Pocket players are be called upon to rescue the lovely, damsel in distress from evil bottle-hurling thugs in Kung Fu Hero, save eggs from being scrambled on the jungle floor and fend off sneaky snakes in Egg Drop, strap on a hardhat and sort a seemingly endless supply of steel girders in Watch Your Head, and more! Staying true to its roots, each game in Retro Pocket features two gameplay modes (Game A and Game B) that present players new and challenging ways to play each game, for a total of 16 game types in all!

Retro Pocket will be available on September 20th, 2012 on the Nintendo DSi Shop for 500 DSi Points, and the Nintendo eShop for $4.99.
