Review For Dead Pixels
Review by: DEHU

Pros :
- Good Gameplay
- Fully controller compatibility
- A fair challenge

Cons :
- Some zombie hordes are too hard to get past
- Each Story is a bit too short (about 10 stages)

Review :
Dead Pixels is a fun 8-bit zombie survival shoot 'em up.
The 8-bit graphics makes it fun to play and it gives a fair challenge, even on Easy.

There are lots of different zombies like, Spitters and Soldiers, and there are good amount of different weapons.
Some building have loot, can be junk that you can sell in a shop, guns and ammo.
Shops can have things the want under the tab "WANTED" and gives some good cash for the item(s).

In the shops you can buy Guns, healthpacks, Ammo, ect. and even upgrade your characters health, reload speed, ect.

There are a few stories/campaigns and other game modes like survival.
There are Local Co-op so you and your buddy can play together.

7.2/10 - Great 8bit. Exceeded my expectations

From the start, this 8bit game blew me away. Cheap and well done! From the start it detected my graphics and controller. I didn't expect that. The opening cut-scenes were good. The story is not original at all but the game is. You loot shops, kill zombies and progress the 10 streets to salvation.

Completed 2/10 streets. I will finish for sure!

Worth $5! A must buy if cheaper.

This game is absolutely great. What a blast~ It's quite simple and has very simple rpg elements such as buying and sellings goods as well as getting more money for selling something to a merchant that they really wanted. I have yet to try the local co-op unfortunately but the single player is simple blast your way through zombies goodness. It has a retro feel of course because of the graphics but I also felt nostalgia playing this game.
UPDATE: I finally played local co-op with a buddy of mine and it makes the game much more intense and fun. For the simplicity of the game it really is quite strategic. If a merchant only has 2 boxes of handgun rounds and 1 box of shells and one player buys it all, there is no ammo left for the other player to buy. You can enter the menu and discard items; however it wont discard them, it will give your partner the oppourtunity to take it. So if you want to lighten your load by all means discard. But if your partner has a more powerful shotgun and you a stronger pistol but you each have the opposite ammo, you can trade and the great thing about it is you can select the exact amount of bullets to give, or just give all with the push of one button. This really added depth that I didn't even know the game had because you won't experience that in single player. This also goes for items such as medipacks and throwable items such as grenades and flares. This game is retro in every way, even in the sense of game like Double Dragon and more modern Super Smash Bros in the sense that they're amazing games made 10X better with a partner. I recommend this game absolutely. Especially if you're a fan of pick up and play and/or retro style games. It may become tedious in single player if you don't really use all it has to offer but in multiplayer it is non-stop fun. I cannot wait for Dead Pixels 2 as it promises 4 player online co-op but it's been so long and no news. For a price of $3.99 you honestly can't go wrong and it supports developers like this who create great content for a reasonable price.

It has great achievments as well such as 1968 which you get when you kill that many zombies. A reference to Night of The Living Dead.

It has tons of zombie media references including tons of Resident Evil references. From the Burton Magnum to the Redfield Carbine Rifle and the Valentine Bold Action. There is also a Weker somthing but I can't quite remember it. The premise is also similar to Day of The Dead in which they have to get to a helicopter and escapre. Although in the movie it's not much to get to the chopper. In the game however you have 30 blocks to go through and keep an eye out for any doors on the upper part of the screen as you can enter them for loot and weapons. Also be mindful you can go into garages which many people may not realize unless by chance. When you clear a building out it'll have a red painted X over it so you know. Also traders tend to have a green arrow pointing towards their door.

Okay, ennough rambling about the game. Buy it and have a blast. I recommend using a gamepad however it isn't necessary. That will just be personal preference but it seems much better in my opinion with the gamepad. Right trigger shoot right. Left trigger, shoot left.
Top 10 Indie game for sure.
