About This Game

Adventures of Pip revitalizes the classic side-scrolling action platform genre. Pip -- the ultimate digital underdog – is a lowly single pixel in a 32-bit world who proves that you can’t judge a hero by the fidelity of his shaders. During the game, Pip gains the ability to evolve and grow by absorbing pixels from his fallen foes. Those same pixels can then be used to blast through environment puzzles and enemies, devolving Pip back to a single pixel. Players will explore five stylized worlds and experience up to 10 hours of epic adventure saving Pip’s village from the evil Queen DeRezzia.

Inspired by classic platformers, Adventures of Pip basks in a world where players can defeat a huge 32-bit boss as a single pixel or even as an 8-bit character.

With three different forms, evolve and devolve Pip to solve puzzles and defeat enemies; each with their own weakness and strength that must be unraveled throughout the campaign.

STORY
The Bit Stream is the life force that fuels Pixel Kingdom. The One who taps its power can forge the Kingdom's destiny.

Pip is only one pixel in a world full of 32-bit characters, yet he is the only one brave enough to face the Queen DeRezzia and rescue the kidnapped princess.

Moved by his plight, the ghost knight, Sir Elwyn, bestowed upon Pip the power to harness the Bit Stream. With the ability to absorb his enemy’s pixels, Pip can transform into a hi-fidelity hero! But be aware! With each evolution not only will you gain skills but some will be lost.

Adventures of Pip is an Action Adventure Platformer game set in a retro 32-bit world.

You're Pip a single pixel that, for whatever reason, choose to become a hero when Pixel Kingdom most needed one, you were bestowed by Sir Elwyn's ghost with the power of the Bit Stream, the life source of your world. Now, with your new powers you set on a quest to rescue the princess from the evil Queen DeRezzia, who wanted to end the rez-ism of Pixel Kingdom, by making everyone, but her, of a single pixel.

The Bit Stream, gave you the power to change your resolution from pixel to voxel and from voxel to 32-bits. Each form has pros and cons. But you'll always be a single pixel where it counts, on the inside ♥

Well made platformer. Nice graphics and interesting gameplay with the main character having different abilities depending on how 'pixelated' it is.

Entertaining in small doses and high production values are clearly seen. Devs put thought into the level design. Difficulty is easy to mediocre and game is thus suitable for smaller kids too. Getting 100% achievements will not be easy. Finding all the hiding villagers is no small feat to accomplish.

Cons? not really - Only real con i have seen this far is that the game sometimes violates the true and tested philosophy that SMB put forward clearly: Allow the player to get back in action as quick as possible. Now this is not common but in some levels it is possible that you die just before a checkpoint and then you have to go trough some hoops earlier in the level - including speaking to someone or something and pressing A key repeatedly to get going instead of having a checkpoint just before the actual action begins.

8 hour game if you're aiming for 100%. 100% completion poses a little bit of a challenge. Sweet and short, simple and fun. Unique Gameplay mechanics, Music and Graphics, humourous dialogue. However, a little bit frustrating at times due to the lack of certain save points, and the sound effects of the cable cars are incredibly annoying. Recommended to purchase during a sale. All in all, 7/10.

If you are into difficult games (like me), leave this page right now ! haha

This game makes me realise that there is no age rating in steam because it is clearly made for kids.
(If I had known I wouldn't have bought it.)

Beside that, Pip is a sweat game so lets make it simple :

+ nice graphics (but not awesome, let's face it)
+ nice game mecanics (not exploited at full potential mainly because of the lack of difficulty)

+/- nice music (the music is cool but does not fit the game at all in my opinion)
+/- basic story, sometime funny but not that interesting.

- no difficulty at all (I mean once you have a few hearts and items you can just run the hell out of all traps and finish the level whitout any worries... As for the villagers, there locations are so obvious...)
- character control is sometime a pain in the ♥♥♥ (mainly because the distinction between "corner grip" and "wall grip" is not well displayed)


So let's say that Pip is a good game per say but have some little issues.

I recommand if you have kids or just want to past time with a sweat simple game.

Count 7-8h for a 100% playthrough.

I encountered this game at PAX East 2014 and talked with some of the people at the booth there while browsing, and I was pretty impressed. Now, 2 years later, I bought it when I saw it on sale. It is a good game, despite it not being what I expected.
It takes a lot of themes from Mario (saving the princess, map layouts, etc) but it improves on almost everything, including the difficulty. You will find yourself staring at the level sometimes trying to formulate some way out.There are also a few texture glitches and the like but nothing that will prevent you from playing levels.
It is hard for me to recommend this at $15, because there ARE better $15 games out there, but I would definitely recommend getting this when it is on sale for 10 dollars or less.

Adventures of Pip is a 2D platformer in which you play as Pip, a single pixel who is tasked with saving his kingdom from the evil Queen DeRezzia. Armed with the ability to switch between pixel, 8 bit, and 16 bit forms, Pip must make his way through a world of peril to save the princess and restore order.

At heart, the game itself has a cute and consistent art style, good music, tight controls, and an interesting premise. While all of these qualities work wonderously, the game becomes rather tedious in it's later half due to both the primary mechanic of form switching and saving the villagers. Form switching is presented far too quickly without much buildup, leading to a rather lackluster experience without much surprise or intrigue. While each form provides their own functions, more abilities for each or perhaps multiple ways to tackle a level would have broken things up in a more interesting way. As for the villagers, there's not much incentive to rescue them as they themselves, or any items or upgrades(in the case of the vendor and blacksmith respectively) are not required to complete the game. Furthermore, upon completing the game there aren't any objectives or bonuses aside from the ones presented in the main game(finding villagers)

At the end of the day, AoP has a lot of unique ideas going for it that will hopefully be expanded upon in a possible sequel. While far from perfect, if you're a fan of pixelated platformers and have a few hours to spare, you may very well enjoy it.

Early Access Review
Posted: March 18, 2015
The evil skeleton queen has turned the royals into pixels, kidnapped the princess and is wreaking havoc on the Pixel Kingdom. Meet pip, a singular pixel that again shows you should never judge a book by it's cover, or density.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeiwGBlBKPs
Upon embarking on your journey a ghost appears, an old knight named Sir Elwyn. Knowing Pip is the only character capable of saving the day the knight grants Pip great powers, the ability to tap into the Bit Stream the very lifeblood of the kingdom. Using the Bit Stream Pip is able to evolve into 3 distinct forms, all with there own pros and cons. A singular pixel that can't attack but fits into small spaces, 8bit Pip, able to climb and bounce of vertical walls while moving faster and 16bit pip, full knight with attack moves, sword and shield.

Process through the game is done on the world map, which consists of 6 zones all with alternate themes. Zones contain 8 levels and finish with a boss fight. Design was intelligent and had plenty of secret stashes and areas to uncover for replayability or 100% runs. First world started off easy don't let that fool you as the difficulty does ramp up, you will soon be swapping between forms multiple times to pass one puzzle or trap. Killing enemies and opening chests during levels will drop gems but to use them will require rescuing of townfolk. Each level contains 3 npcs to find, gradually they will report back for work duties giving you access to new upgrades.

The pixel art is beautiful and a very nice combination of old and new. Soundtrack could use a little more variation but I think more tracks will come with future updates. Did not attempt to use keyboard and mouse controls but gamepad was tight and responsive.

Overall if you are a fan of games like Kirby and Super Mario Brothers or just looking for a decent sidescrolling platformer with some meat on the bones, this is one early access game worth taking a look at. Successful Kickstarter campaign and content is all in place, just doing some spit shining. Cheers. :)

As a supporter of this game since its first Kickstarter with high hopes and standards for the game, I'm thoroughly glad to be able to finally recommend this game to everyone!

tl;dr: The Adventures of Pip offers a tight and well-balanced puzzle platforming experience bolstered by its strong soundtrack, visuals, and mechanics but marred by a slightly weak story!

Adventures of Pip showcases, well, Pip's adventure as he seeks to save the land from the evil Skeleton Queen!
The Bit Stream allows him to transform between 3 different forms/resolutions, from a one-bit boxel to a sword-wielding 16-bit warrior. Each form has its own benefits and drawbacks (as a boxel, Pip is slow, weak, but can float and greatly decrease the speed of his fall), allowing for many variations in gameplay as you evolve and devolve Pip to solve the many puzzles in the game! It's an awesome concept utilized very well in conjunction with the tight controls and varying game mechanics!

The game may look like your typical x-bit platformer, but the graphics actually combine both classic and modern looks. It results in a very eye-pleasing combination that could only have been made better with some more shaders/particle effects etc.. Jake Kaufman (AKA virt) procures another amazing orchestral soundtrack in this game, with a pretty good variance in soundtrack style throughout the game.

I do wish that there was more of a story. It's definitely more than the generic Mario "save the princess" story, but there are still characters with little backstory! Pip lives in an epic world that deserves more explaination! There's also been some confusing dialogue changes between Early Access and full release that both add to the experience and take away from it due to some dry humor.

Overall, Adventures of Pip is a great twist on the usual platforming fare! Tic Toc Games has recently been pushing the fact that this game's a great introduction to gaming for newer gamers, and I couldn't agree more. It's simple and fun to play, and offers a wide but steady degree of difficulty!

With control over a single pixel with the power to absorb pixels from certain enemies Pip battles the hoards of enemies from the evil Queen DeRezzia.
While the Level design stands out as amazing from my perspective and the bosses stand out for their graphical neatness, I would say that the music of the game really draws you into the game.

After completing the game in 4,7hours I would say that it didnt stop me cause I was done with the game, I was really yearning for more, so right now I'm going for the 100% completion and I'm still enjoying Pip to the fullest!

Adventures of Pip is a platforming game with unique twist.
At first, I though Pip was only one small pixel that's red square but after that Pip got an unique power to turn into 8-bit then 16-bit.
The puzzles can only be solved by a combination of the 3 different forms that Pip has manifested.
Pretty good idea from the dev.

If you love retro platformer, this game is yours to be picked.

This key was obtained from the developer for formal review at TechRaptor.net

Gameplay Footage and Video Review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKxhR6nu3W0

Summary:
Pixel Platformers are a dime a dozen lately, but Adventures of Pip does do enough to help stand out from the rest of the crowd despite it being a common genre. Great level design in most cases to really take advantage of the player reacting and thinking out the situation they've been put in, and the game has that charm that you'd expect of a game like this, but with a pretty satisfying story even if it's inconsistent. It's not all great, as certain elements of the game do fall flat on their face, and the games difficulty when it comes down to it is very inconsistent. In the end, for the price, it's definitely worth a look when it's on sale, and especially if you want need a platforming experience right now. But strongest element is probably the music, which does well of playing to each level's strength.

Formal Score: 7.5/10

Lists:

+:
  • Evolution/De-evolution Mechanic works well with all forms of Pip having their own unique strength.
  • Rewards a player who pays attention and looks for detail, which I really appreciate.
  • The change up in aesthetic between the forms is done well, they all are unique and stand out
  • Fantastic lineup of music here, which should be familiar to those who've played games like Shovel Knight.
  • Worlds feel pretty unique between them in terms of art style. Good design elements here all around.
  • Controls are exactly what they need to be, and what's even more interesting is that it feels natural to change between forms despite them acting differently in terms of jumping/running, which I wasn't expecting.

-:
  • Length will be an issue for some, even with the collectables.
  • Certain levels and bosses don't work in terms of gameplay. In particular, an inconsistent difficulty curve that spikes at times can really lead to frustration.
  • On that note however, most of the game plays rather easily.

Similar Games of note:
  • Bit Evolution
  • Super Win The Game

A very fun platformer where you have to evolve and devolve the main character from 8-bit to 16-bit and to 32-bit. Each form has different abilities and advantages which you use to solve puzzles and reach the end of the stage. Gameplay is solid, graphics are nice, and music is beautiful.

Get this game if you are a fan of platformers!
