このゲームについて

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.

通称"蟹娘","カニちゃん"などと呼ばれるいわゆる"死にゲー"アクション.

見た目は美少女ヒロインとレトロテイストのドット絵をウリにしたキャッチーな印象の2D横スクロールアクション,しかしその中身は猛烈に難しい鬼畜難易度の脱毛促進ゲーム!!
…ですがインディーズに数多くある死にゲーの中でもレベルデザインやトラップ・ギミック配置についてはよく考え抜かれ作りこまれており,一見理不尽で突破不可能に思える箇所もトライ&エラーを繰り返すうちに自然と突破口が見えてきてクリアできるようになる絶妙な難易度を保っています.
文字通り血反吐を吐きながらの苦労の末クリアできた時の達成感の高さはひとしお!

この手のゲームでは割と珍しいライフ制の導入と,こまめに入るチェックポイントのおかげでモチベを維持しやすく,可愛らしい蟹娘の行く末の見たさもあってついつい頑張って最後までプレイしてしまう魔力があります.

また直接的な攻撃手段が用意されているのもこの手の死に覚えゲーでは案外珍しい点.
コンボを叩き込んだり敵をトラップに押し込んでミンチにしたりと大量の血しぶきとともにボーナスゲットできて非常に爽快感が高いです.

セール時には非常に安くなるため手に取りやすいタイトルとしてもオススメの一本です.


レビュー投稿直前頃のアップデートで初心者向けの"Novice"モードが追加されましたが,最終面がプレイできないなど制限がいくつかあるようなのでやはりSTANDARDでのクリアを目指して欲しいものです.
発売からそれなりの年月が経っても定期的にアップデートやEXステージなどのコンテンツ追加が行われている点も好感持てます.

1つ難点を挙げるとしたら操作性でしょうか.
基本のレスポンス自体は問題ないものの、通常攻撃とダッシュ攻撃に同じボタンで似た操作を使うためここぞというタイミングで暴発を招くことがあります.シビアな操作を要求されるゲームだけにここは残念.
シンプルな操作を目指しての設計だと思うのですが切り分け可能になれば更に良くなるはず...
あとコントローラ必須レベルなのでキーボードやレースハンドルしかないという方は要注意.

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.

★★★★★★★★★☆

They Bleed Pixels perfectly combines precision platforming with intense fast paced hack and slash combat. This gorgeously gore-filled 2D platformer will push you to your breaking point with its incredibly challenging level design and merciless enemies.

The game places you in control of a young school girl who stumbles across a mystical book that places a curse upon her that causes her to morph into a mutant purple demon with “Edward Scissor-hand”-esque blades for hands when she falls asleep. She then enters a beautifully animated horror filled nightmare that is filled with monsters and creatures of the night. She is then put in the unfortunate dilemma of fighting her way out of these nightmares before she’s sucked into them permanently.

The artwork is very well done and beautifully blends pixel art with paper and ink textures, the game looks especially stunning when you brutally kill an enemy by pushing them into a saw blade and have their bloody pixels sparkle and decorate your screen. The dark atmospheric environments help set the gothic tone of the game. The game also features a dark groovy electronic music soundtrack that pairs perfectly with the artwork and helps sets the games tone.

The games combat system is incredibly simplistic, yet at the same time very deep. While there aren’t any long lengthy combos to chain together or memorize, there are plenty of ways to kill enemies. All attacks are executed by clicking one mouse button, but the timing, direction, and ways you interact with the environment provide an ample amount of ways to brutally vanquish the enemies. One of the most interesting aspects of the game is the way that the checkpoint system works; Instead of having set predetermined checkpoints laid out in the levels, you have to earn your checkpoints by filling the meter at the top of the screen by collecting orbs and killing enemies. The more brutally you kill an enemy, the more points you get towards your checkpoint meter, so creativity is certainly rewarded. This checkpoint system helps take away from some of the difficulty related frustration associated with precision platformers of having to replay the same sections of levels over and over, but the game still offers a great level of difficulty.

They Bleed Pixels is undoubtedly one of the finer platforming experiences you will find on PC. Offering a gorgeous art style, incredibly challenging level design, fast paced combat system, innovative checkpoint system, and dark and adorable story and characters. While you will die repeatedly and be forced to play levels over and over, you will feel incredibly satisfied with yourself when you manage to overcome the games challenging difficulty.
