SUMMER SALE! Offer ends July 4
Xymjak has finally taken the title from JM Viking, a title JM Viking has held for about 7 months.
Well done Xymjak for this immense even more almost impossible achievement.
The lead may be less then a minute, but at these times it is still an amazing accomplishment. And there is even a video, check out Xymjak's post in General Discussions.
Congratulations again Xymjak
p.s. again I am late with this announcement, but this now happens so rarely.
“Life of Pixel oozes retro nostalgia at every turn.”

“I don’t mean to gush, but I cannot say enough good things about this great throwback title that nails neo-retro.”

|7/10||Pixel has your typical standard fare gameplay for a retro platformer. It works well on its own, but there does not seem to be much variety. It’s your typical collectathon on one hand, and a basic platformer with the usual hazards on the other. It’s clean in what it does, and the challenge is there, but I wish there was more variety.|
|9/10||This is one of the areas where Pixel shines. I mean my god, did they do a bang up job or what! If you’ve ever played any of the platforms that were used to inspire the worlds, you’ll feel right at home. Though I can’t give it a perfect score, because it’s not 100% perfect. Some obvious liberties had to be taken, as can be seen for example on the NES and Gameboy stages. But it still looks phenomenal all the same. And luckily, no character flickering!|
|10/10||If the graphics alone did not have me hooked, the music indeed helped. Every world has music and sound effects either created with the original systems, or with emulators of the original sound boards. And the music is just superb chiptune magic!|
|Medium||The levels themselves seem to be on the short side, though they get a little longer as you progress and are introduced into scrolling levels, they are still bite sized. And a level can be 100% completed in a matter of a minute or less on some stages, to just a few minutes on others. Easy stuff here, with no real need to go back, other than to reminisce. Still a good game to show off to your older friends. Or for you young’uns, your parents will get a kick out of you showing them this.|
|8/10||Life of Pixel is a great trip down memory lane, and one of the better games to take this idea and run with it. You usually see games try to mimic one platform or another. But this game does it with over a dozen platforms. And while it may be a simple platformer, it is indeed very fun to play.|
