Om dette spil

They Bleed Pixels is a fiendishly difficult action platformer inspired by H.P. Lovecraft and classic horror. Rendered in a distinct visual style that blends pixel art with paper and ink textures, They Bleed Pixels is a singular mix of intense platforming and fierce beat-em-up action. At the core of its fighting system is a simple one-button combat scheme with surprising depth and versatility. Button mashing is discouraged while kicking shadowy monsters into saws, pits and spikes is rewarded, thanks to a unique system that lets you earn and place your own checkpoints through stylish kills. The fancier your kills, the faster you fill the checkpoint meter.

Story:
When a young girl arrives at the Lafcadio Academy for Troubled Young Ladies, she's unprepared for the violent nightmares that plague her dreams and transport her to other worlds. Worse yet, her dreams are intruding into her waking life, slowly altering her flesh into the demonic form of her night terrors. Can she destroy the mysterious blood-soaked book that appears to be the root of her troubles or will her transmutation from girl to clawed horror become complete?

Key Features:

  • Extra tight controls: One-button attack system favors skilled combat over complicated combos and button-mashing. Super precise platforming controls let you stop and start on a dime while pulling off gravity-defying dashes and double jumps.

  • Eleven massive levels to fight through and explore, each with unique visuals and music. Unlock additional bonus levels and guest levels from indie game developers based on their own creations: They Bleed Ponycorns, They Bleed Stardust, exp.

  • Unique checkpoint system rewards fancy kills with a save spot you can carry with you. Hold on to it for extra points or drop it right away to preserve your progress.

  • Becoming a monster stabbing master with individual level rankings as well as 150 skill-based achievements. There's lots to aim for after you've completed the game.

  • Standard and Novice difficulty to match your skill level.

  • Record, playback and share your best playthroughs with online leaderboards for speed and high score!

  • Lush pixel art motion comics tell the story a young girl haunted by eldritch nightmares.

  • Original electronic soundtrack by DJ Finish Him (aka Shaun Hatton) composed with synthesizers, unconventional instruments and gadgets often not meant for musical use.

An atmospheric fighting platformer inspired by Lovecraft. They've divided the game into two modes, Standard and Novice. There are also bonus levels. If you aren't too good at Super Meat Boy (like me), you should start with Novice. The controls are awesome, especially with a gamepad. The soundtrack is marvellous. The graphics are crisp. The combos are fun. The gameplay and replayability are top-notch. You're still asking me whether I'd recommend this game?

Little Girl Death Simulator

They Bleed Pixels is basically what would you would get if you took Super Meat Boy then added checkpoints, some combat, and longer levels. It is hard. Really hard. And if you dont know of any obcinities, dont fret. You will learn new ones. You will probably make up new ones.

The levels are well designed and varied. It is a bit of a shame there is no level editor because this game is basically begging for steam workshop integration.

All in all a great platformer if you like tough games and have patience for a lot of failure,

They Bleed Pixels is a challenging wall jump platformer, with a satisfying unique premise, quality combat and engaging mechanics.

You control a presumably troubled student at the Lafcadio Academy for troubled girls. She stumbles across a magical book that makes you have wild dreams involving a few strangely horrific creatures, several bloody spikes, and an ever present number of saws. The book also has glowing bits and pages that not only are missing, but found inside said dreams. Take heed of any such events that occur in reality, as these are not normal behaviors for books or their pages.

Through mysterious circumstance you have grown claws, which is so awesome that we will refer to this character as clawgirl. Also you become purple, which is a color associated with royalty, Roman Emperors, plums, and according to the Simpsons is itself a fruit. Clawgirl now likes to claw and kick levers and assorted Eldritch horrors, as she navigate your fun dream world with silky mechanics and enough cool moves to enjoyably and reliably get the job done. These moves include the downward thrusting fall, the slide on the floor, and the rat-a-tat-tat hit-you-in-the-air maneuvre. A clever mechanic in this game is the check point system, as a new checkpoint can be placed down whenever a sufficient amount of combo bar has been activated, where combo can be gained by elegantly and rhythmically dismantling opponents, or picking up little globules of blood that are scattered around the world as if left by a crime spree in space. On occasion this has led to taking perhaps a more difficult path to simply save earlier to avoid redoing portions of a level.

The levels involve clawgirl moving from the beginning to the end in what is often a circuitous and meandering path. You accumulate pints, in opposition to the classic of points and referencing the games appreciation of blood. There's a fair amount of pixely blood in this game, and it's always fun. Most of it will be spilled by you of course, especially if you intend to complete the challenges for each level of gathering the grim harvest of all the blood pickups, or the 6 book pages on each level. The blood pickups mostly involve a finesse of controls to navigate while collecting them all, serving to increase the overall number of jumps, and occasionally up the difficulty of those jumps. The pages are of significantly higher challenge for the level, serving to provide interesting navigations that can intrigue or frustrate, depending on your underlying psychological dispositions.

The game plays out over a prologue, three chapters with three levels each, and an ending sequence. These will take a fair amount of time to beat for players of most skill levels, with a significant ramp up in difficulty over the course of the game. There are also a number of created levels for those with more voracious appetite for content.

The graphics of this game involve a pleasant pixelated layer upon which the game mechanics plays out, and a fascinating background layer that is often quite a surreal, tesselated treat. The music is of a high bit-sound quality, fitting the grim aesthetic of the game and is sufficiently varied that it never wears on your soul with repetition.

This is a well made platformer that will entertain grizzled veterans of the genre with its challenging, engaging dynamics and delightful Lovecraft inspired aesthetic. Non-afficianados may find themselves frustrated with the difficulty, and leaving after a few levels, but not after spending sufficient time with the game to justify its purchase.

Alright, so, They Bleed Pixels came out about the right time before the Super Meat Boy craze died down and held itself as a solid, hardcore platformer. Controls are tight, well tuned, and of course rebindable.

They Bleed Pixels is a harcore platformer which meets the requirements for making it stand out from the current 6,000 titles on steam which include:

1. great art style - the asthetic for this takes a strong Lovecraftian tone to the enviroment and with the 'Crimon Update' everything runs exceptionally well with the pixelated blood bouncing all over with each stab. And the cutscenes included while maintaining an appealing pixel graphic detail and everyone seems to love the main character

2. appreciable soundtrack - I'd say most of the songs in this game are notable and interesting, however there are a few here and there that can come of as a regular chip-tune but nothing to really sneeze about.

3. straight-forward controls - like I recently stated controls work fine with minimal button functions being left, right, jump, duck, and attack. the attack button can be used in multple fashion.

They Bleed Pixels is about a girl who goes to a school for troubled young girls run by an eerie headmaster. She finds a book and is suddenly taken to a strange world and her hands are replaced with sharp red claws. You start out with the tutorial but are quickly taken into combat where you conflict with 5 different enemy types. There's a score system that earns you 'pints' once you get enough you'll be able to cast a save sigil and this is how you'll be able to save and regain your health as long as your on stable ground and there are no obstructions nearby. getting pints depends on your combo meter and how you kill enemies, there's a large variety of combos giving plenty of grueseome death to your foes.

Now this is still a hardcore platformer and you can not only wall jump but you'll also be able to stick to solid walls. there's plenty more score as well base on how many kills you got, how fast it was done, whether you died or took damage, and how many pages you got that are scattered through each level.

Now one of the obstacles that may end some people's games are the sawblades, these things are your true enemy as when you hit one of them you'll bounce off in any random direction almost ensuring instant death in the proccess. This I'm sure is what some people get upset about when playing through. The levels themselves are individually unique, very long, and quickly ramp up in difficulty in each one adding more obscatcles and enemies. There's a good amount of content including well over 150 in game achievements that unlock extra levels and artwork made by the community.

The devs themselves for this game know what their doing and have always been able to respond to any questions I've seen pop up in the discussion thread, I haven't seen many game devs reach over to their fanbase before as much as the two who built this title before even while their finnished working on this one.

Overall it's a good experience if you're in to the SMB level and stlye of gaming, it's not something for everyone of course and does require a lot of patience but has a fantastic sense of gratitude when you complete that one section or level that isn't quite common, and that is why I feel confident enough to reccomend this game.

Ah, after screaming at my monitor for 6 hours I've managed to beat the first playtrough on normal. Then to go for the speedruns, obscenely difficult extra stages and next-to-impossible achievements.. I can hardly wait..

The game features brilliant art and soundtrack, Movement and controllability are quite fantastic, although there might be a few issues regarding controller support and adjusting to the character movement (especially wall jumps) might take some time.

The difficulty ramps up really quickly, you will die hundreds of times and some stages can take well more than an hour to finish during first playtrhough, certainly if you want to kill every monster, collect all the hidden pages or obtain a high rank by collecting as much blood as possible. I haven't tried the novice difficulty setting, but I imagine it's not quite for a casual player either.

All in all the game is very well polished, background music drives you to try harder even when you feel like quitting.. And the violence.. oh, all the ways to dismantle your enemies and make them pay for BLOCKING YOU ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ PATH AGAIN in excitingly innovative and brutal ways.. really helps relief stress you may have acquired while playing.

You will probably find yourself coming back to this game time after time you close it and swear to not take another step within that girl's terrible nightmares.
