"A very out of the box point and click. You are tasked to solve a problem, but the solution is not exactly obvious, but the outcome is always hilarious."

AUDIO: Cute                                                  AESTHETIC: Retro
MEMORABILITY: Hilarious                            WORTH: Full Price

PROS: A parody of MacGyver where you are put into a time-crunched scenario that you need to quickly solve. The game is structured very creatively to keep you on your toes the whole way through. Lots of levels and easter eggs. Legitimately funny, laugh-out-loud humor that ranges from subtle to asinine.

CONS: Disappointed by the lack of achievements, but that's a very small gripe in the grand scheme of things.

OVERALL: Gaming is riddled with failed attempts at comedy. I'm glad to see there is a game out there that can actually make me laugh very hard.

McPixel
This game is just an very accurate representation of our era, which is "The Era Of The Internet". I am saying that only because nowadays everything has the WTF factor in it, and on, this game was created only with from that material. Don't get me wrong, it is a great game if you have an updated sense of humor and a lot of patience.

Ratting: 10/10

Short, twenty-second puzzles in which you try to help McPixel save the world... or at least, the world he's in... with a couple of well-placed clicks. If those clicks are anything but well-placed, well... you get the picture. Sometimes just the ensuing hilarity may be what you're after.

The visuals may seem a little cheesy to some, but it doesn't need to be sophisticated in that category. Heck, even the humor can be a bit lowbrow. If anything, the cheesy visuals and sometimes-ribald humor are part of the overall charm. Besides, "McTexel" just doesn't have quite the same ring to it.

Now, go forth and save the world! Or at least, the world McPixel's in.

McPixel is not exactly a puzzle game. It's more of a humourus take on the genre. You are McPixel, a guy who finds himself in the strangest scenarios (a train about to explode, a pyramid about to explode, an iceberg about to explode, a tower about to explode... you get the idea) and needs to save the day with the few objects he can use. Initially you may think that you can use logic for that, but... nope! Everything is absurd. First, the fun lies in trying to save the day, then you replay trying to see all the possible endings (mostly: explosions), or, as the game says, "find all the gags".

I played the four chapter of the basic game and had enough fun, then got bored and didn't even try the numerous DLCs freely available. It's so cheap that it is hard not to recommend it, you will laugh several times playing it!

My favourite levels were those based on famous movies and videogames. And you can also kick Batman and Darth Vader in the nuts!
