Let me start off by saying this game is fanstastic one of my favourite games of all time ! so you may ask why is it your favourite game of all time? because their are a alot of things you can do in this game like toking the toke community for this game is freaking amazing one of the best mod communities for the mcpixel series the bongs in this game blow you away visual wise and immersive/gameplay wise there are so joints mods to get if you play as a male mcpixel you got alot of choices like sexy armours/body options/hair options/pixel options and so on so fourth with immersive you have gameplay changes like combat enhancements or prespective mods to make it like you are really in the world of mcpixel, the map is super huge almost compareable to GTA V but a little bit smaller there are alot of quests to do in the world of mcpixel and alot of interesting NPC's so let me talk about visuals well their are high res texture packs 1k/2k/4k textures to choose from but i prefer 1k/2k to keep a stable FPS and to stop your game from crashing also there are alot of ages to choose from to enhance your colors to make em more vibrant and dramatic and to enchance the lighting to make the game looks extremely better than vanilla i like to think of mcpixel like an extreamly fun and funny game with all these choices you can get cause it truely is a next gen experience over the other games that's just ugly and messy, so if you are gonna play the bad games just play it on a console like really if you play the PC version why not get some options to enhance your experience even further ! SO MANY CONTENT ARGHHH MIND BLOWING !!! i hope this review sums it all up for you to purchase the game also i do not recommend the Steam workshop for mods, i recommend the mcpixel NEXUS ! go now, BUY IT !

You click on things and stuff blows up, sometimes it doesn't and you win.


oh, and Randomness ≠ Funniness.

Now i like funny games and consider myself to have a good sense of humour,but come on what the hell is this game all about.
I know that graphics dont make a game but they could have helped with this one.
You start the first level like every level not really knowing what the "HELL" is going on and what your supposed to do (OH SORRY STOP THE BOMB SILLY ME DUH),and thats the way every level plays out.
Its not a question of working out what to do as it is blind luck,and dont do the level right and you get to play it again (OH NO THE PAIN) and then do it wrong again and you get to do it again (WHERES THE EXIT PLEASE),and then you realise that you are just wasting your time and that you know you will get it right eventually as there are not many options left.
I didnt enjoy my time with this game (OH MY GOD I DID TRY TO THE POINT OF PURE FRUSTRATION) and i wouldent reccomend it to anyone in a sale or in a bundle.
Do like McPixel and find a way to blow this game up (AND IF YOU DONT MANAGE TO KEEP AT IT UNTIL YOU DO) and please dear god dont let there be a sequel.

McPixel was a Awesome creative Game, I completed that four Stage within 2 Days. Very Annoying game its Fun,Retro Style and has a Great Story. You can Create your own Imagination on Creative mode. Cheap,Funny,Cheerful, and Nice! you just have 15 Second to Save the World from the Bomb!

"I Rate it 7-10 Stars" Try this Guy!

McPixel is a point and click adventure game in a WarioWare-like situation where your character is attempting to prevent a bomb (or other device) from blowing up. This is played out by interacting with various objects in the game which usually have completely unpredictable results.

This is not a terribly fun game. Ultimately, while you "control" the outcome, there's no real way to determine "right" or "wrong" - it's all trial and error until you find the idea which the designer thought would be the funny actual solution. Half the time they're not all that funny in the first place. Additionally, the game is quite short - it takes longer to run the game to drop all the steam trading cards than it does to beat the game itself, literally.

If I'm not mistaken, this game was originally a phone game and is far better suited to that format - clicking the screen, seeing stuff happen, and consuming in very, very bite sized increments. As a PC game where you're generally sitting down for somewhat longer play sessions, the novelty wears thin very rapidly and it becomes more tedious then entertaining.

McPixel is.... well... where the heck do you start....

McPixel is a medley of references and metajokes based around McPixel, a spin-off of MacGuyver, whose job is to defuse the bomb and save the day! Just HOW he does this is up to you.

I completed all 4 of the main stories with 100% clearance in 2 hours, but the game also provides a copious amount of DLC for the delighted player to enjoy.

Cheap, cheerful and wacky good fun to be had with this little Greenlit game. Worth checking out for sure!
