I have the faintest of suspicions that I may be "getting old". The fact that this game is frankly too silly for even the immature likes of me seems to bear this out. That, and the fact that while I was fine with all the post, and indeed post-post, and probably even post-post-post, and maybe, just maybe, even all the post-post-post-post-modernist humour that has emerged during my lifetime, all this post-post-post-post-post-modernist humour that seems all the rage these days is just a bit beyond me, I'm afraid. Half the time, not only did I not find the "gags" of this game all that funny, but at least another quarter of the time I didn't even understand what had just transpired (though the insanely, even downright PERVERSELY pixelated nature of events may not have helped in these instances). The other quarter of the time, okay, I got myself a cheap chuckle - my personal favourite was trying to work out who the virgin was to throw in the volcano, and ultimately (and successfully) deciding on MYSELF - but the laughs really are too few and far between to put up with the eye-bleedingly awful graphics and incredibly limited gameplay. (Groovy music, though.)

Look, I will recommend it, but only just, and only to those who need a brief break from watching allegedly "funny ♥♥♥♥" all day, every day on ♥♥♥♥ing YOUTUBE. Yes, it's at roughly THAT level, I'm afraid. Enjoy your LOLs, kiddies...

Verdict: 6/10.

Short, trial and error, point and click puzzles in an old-school pixelated style. Reminds me of Wario Ware type games (although plays a bit different but same 20 second time frames). Works well if you understand it seems made for some chuckles. You will fail time and again (you actually have to fail to see all the possible results to open some bonus rounds) but not particularly frustrating as it is very quick paced but casual. A game that I recommend for short intervals. Lots of content expanded by user content as well. I haven't finished the game, but overall I feel good recommending it.

To understand this game, you need a decent sense of humor, because it is so random and so "WTFy" that it actually makes you laugh. Also, logic don't apply here, so it's just pure fun without unnecessary frustration - once you get to the (least logical and most unexpected) solution, most of the time you'll laugh because of how hilarious it was.

A surreel excercise in pixel hunting. The game is simple, plays quickly, with a lot of great movie, video-game, and pop-culture references.

It's just... weird. A full 100% playthough will only take a few hours, although like the disclaimer says, it's definitely better when taken in small chunks. Otherwise things start getting pretty repetitive.

Recommended and worth a pick-up though.

''Your choice, your opinion, your say. You have 30 seconds to stop the bomb the McPixel way.'' My quote was actually quite nice to think of it. Also, it is recommended for people who loves puzzles and to solve mouse-clicking games. There are DLCs that are free and that is a good present. You get the story with 4 chapters and in each chapter, there is 3 levels to complete and also a hidden level. I hope this helps your advantage of getting this game, it's great. (By the way, my quote just rhymed, I was saving this note for last).

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.

When you first think of a solution to the problem, forget that and do the opposite. Thats how you beat this game.
Plus you can make-out with Obama.

Playing McPixel is pretty much like being drunk. Everything seems like a good idea.

The wild gameplay, that awards not only the correct solutions but also failed attempts, requires a great deal of creativity. Creativity - not just random clicking on every single pixel on your screeen, as many have pointed out in their reviews. After a time, the game begins to draw you towards its twisted logic. The bumpy run you had the first time playing McPixel, turns out to be very addictive, definately re-playable and captivating long ride.

The humour used by the creators is a little bit foul, sure. You will feel it pays tribute to your inner 14-year-old. It fits, however, the randomness and roughness of the game, making you smirk at the most obscure gags. (And is still better than American Pie.) What is even more exciting, the game has been provided with themed levels, for example paying tribute to other famous video games.

Also, lots of explosions.

Very fun and interesting game!

You must use your brain to not blow yourself up.

I've played hours of this game on iOS.

Grab it at full price. You won't regret it.
