Build your corporate empire and destroy the competition. Shakedown: Hawaii follows three protagonists through a 16-bit open world. Build your own "legitimate" corporation by completing missions, acquiring businesses, sabotaging competitors, "re-zoning" land, and shaking down shops for protection money. Explore the island by foot, by car, or by boat. It's filled with arcade challenges, sidequests, stores to shop at, houses to burgle, civilians to interact with, and secrets to discover.

If you really like the open-world, GTA-style games and haven’t grown tired of really old graphics technology, there is some fun to be had with Shakedown: Hawaii. Otherwise, you might want to look for a more robust game to squeeze some more life out of your Nintendo 3DS.
We love the presentation and the satire in Shakedown: Hawaii. The humour is incredible, the pixel graphics are superb, and the music is truly fantastic. We also really enjoyed the setting, the in-game mechanics and the characters within. Sure, the economy-system could have been expanded upon, but there's something very unique about this particular game. If you enjoyed Vblank Entertainments' last game (Retro City Rampage) or if you loved Grand Theft Auto and GTA2 then this is definitely a game for you.
Stilistisch trifft Shakedown: Hawaii mit seinem 16-Bit-Look und seinem tollen Soundtrack zwar voll ins Schwarze. Einen ähnlichen Mix bekommen Retro-GTA-Fans aber auch mit dem Vorgänger Retro City Rampage in der DX-Version - ohne aufgepfropfte, letztlich unnötige Wirtschaftssimulations-Elemente.
