Über dieses Spiel

They Bleed Pixels ist ein teuflisch schwerer Action-Plattformer, inspiriert von H.P. Lovecraft und klassischem Horror. In seinem unnachahmlichen Stil, der Pixelart mit handgezeichneten Texturen vereint, bietet They Bleed Pixels eine einmalige Mischung aus anspruchsvollen Plattformelementen und wilden Beat-em-up Gefechten. Das Kampfsystem ist mit nur einer Taste zwar einfach gehalten, überrascht aber dennoch mit Tiefe und Vielseitigkeit. Auf die Taste zu hämmern, bringt Ihnen keine Vorteile, die Schattenmonster in Sägen, Abgründe oder Stacheln zu treten, hingegen schon. Dank eines einzigartigen Systems, können Sie durch elegante Kills Ihre eigenen Checkpoints verdienen und setzen. Je ausgefallener die Kills, desto schneller können Sie einen neuen Checkpoint platzieren.

Geschichte:
Als ein junges Mädchen an der Lafcadio Akademie für verhaltensauffällige junge Damen ankommt, ist sie keinesfalls auf die grausamen Alpträume vorbereitet, die sie Nacht für Nacht heimsuchen und in fremde Welten schicken. Schlimmer noch, ihre Träume dringen in ihr richtiges Leben ein und verwandeln ihren Körper nach und nach in die dämonische Form ihres nächtlichen Schreckens. Wird sie es schaffen, das geheimnisvolle, blutbefleckte Buch zu zerstören, was der Ursprung all ihrer Probleme zu sein scheint oder wird die Verwandlung von Mädchen zu klauenschwingendem Ungeheuer letztendlich abgeschlossen?

Hauptmerkmale:

  • Extrem präzise Steuerung: Statt komplizierte Combos zu lernen und auf Tasten zu hämmern können Sie mit nur einer Taste geschickte Angriffskombinationen ausführen. Die exakte Kontrolle über Ihren Charakter erlaubt Ihnen, punktgenau zu manövrieren, während Sie mit Doppel- und Seitensprüngen der Gravitation trotzen.

  • Elf riesige Level zum Durchkämpfen und Erkunden, jedes mit eigenem Grafikstil und eigener Musik. Schalten Sie zusätzliche Gast-Level von Indie-Spieleentwicklern, basierend auf ihren eigenen Werken, frei: They Bleed Ponycorns, They Bleed Stardust.

  • Das einzigartige Checkpoint-System belohnt Sie für ausgefallene Kills mit einem tragbaren Speicherpunkt. Behalten Sie ihn, um mehr Punkte zu erhalten oder setzen Sie ihn, um Ihren Fortschritt zu sichern.

  • Werden Sie ein meisterhafter Monster-Schlächter mit individueller Level-Bewertung, Online-Ranglisten für Geschwindigkeit und Punktzahl, sowie über 100 fordernde Errungenschaften. Es gibt noch viel zu tun, nachdem Sie das Spiel beendet haben.

  • Großartige, bewegte Pixelart-Comics erzählen die Geschichte eines jungen Mädchens, das von unheimlichen Alpträumen heimgesucht wird.

  • Electronic-Soundtrack von DJ Finish Him (alias Shaun Hatton) zusammengesetzt aus Synthesizern, unkonventionellen Instrumenten und Dingen, die man normalerweise nicht für Musik benutzt.

They Bleed Pixels is a side-scrolling platformer with fighting elements, set in a creepy environment.

The platforming is great. Nothing too fancy, though. There are double jumps, wall jumps. A couple of fighting moves are reused as platforming moves. Some walls cannot be clinged onto. The platforming by itself cannot compete with something like Super Meat Boy, but doesn't fall too far either.
When getting hit, in most games the character typically gets a period of invulnerability. It's just a trick to simplify the programming of the game. They Bleed Pixels avoids this. For example, hitting a blade saw throws the character away.
Another thing to point out is spikes act like spikes. You can even walk in between them, as long as you aren't actually getting impaled.

The controls are impressively elegant. Directions + 2 buttons is all you need to perform about 20 different actions. They may have gone a bit overboard with this, though, because sometimes you will end up doing something different than you meant. But you have only yourself to blame.

The enemies are just so original, and their AI is flawless. They will always find ways to annoy you, especially when there is a saw moving towards you, or you're about to slide off to your death. The full arsenal of abilities will be needed to deal with them. Everything fits together perfectly. You can even block some attacks (of course, there is no separate block button).
An important part of the game is environmental damage. It is preferred to normal attacks, and is much more powerful. And there really are many ways to make enemies hit those spikes.

They Bleed Pixels is a difficult game for sure. But there is a slightly easier novice mode. And, of course, challenges and bonus levels of all kinds, with varying difficulty, up to extremely hardcore. There are achievements for collecting all the "books" on a level, each of which is a challenge by itself, no-death runs, speedruns and more. The game can be really competitive. Big replay value.

Graphically, the game looks great. Nice pixel art, especially the backgrounds. Not everything is perfect, but the animations make up for it. Cutting through the enemies feels great.
The soundtrack sure is strange, a bit morbid, based mostly on repeating catchy (chip)tunes. But it's fitting, and I really liked it. Sound effects are nice.

I encourage people who for some reason gave up on this game, to give it another try. It appears the entire game was rewritten at some point.

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.
