Publisher/Developer: Super Icon
What they say: Life of Pixel – a platform adventure.
Pixel was a little green pixel who was tired of being part of the crowd. Pixel wanted to see more…

A time when the humble Pixel ruled!
What I say: Life of Pixel got kind of a bad rap when it was first released. Apparently there were a few issues with the game but developer Super Icon released a patch that addressed those issues. Life of Pixel is an old skool platformer at heart but with a cool twist; each set of levels is based off of an old game system or computer. A lot of classic systems are represented. Everything from the Atari 2600 to the Commodore to the original Game Boy. Each set of levels goes out of its way to emulate the system they are representing. Even the music does a pretty good job of invoking the style of the system being emulated.
Fortunately the game play shines as well as the art style. It takes its cues straight from the best platformers of the respective systems and the game is challenging…very challenging. This will be no easy trek. Add in a hidden gem on each level and you will certainly keep yourself busy for a while trying to master this challenging yet rewarding game. It is a great deal of fun and for its price, it can’t be beat.
Life of Pixel is playable on PS VIta and Playstation Mobile devices.
