Description
Release date: Third quarter 2014
Life of Pixel is an epic platform adventure game, with amazing gameplay, fun characters, beautiful 8 & 16-bit aesthetics and a lot of heart.

A retro delicacy dedicated to the brilliance of classic gaming machines and ground-breaking game favourites. You play as Pixel, the inquisitive little green hero on a quest to explore where pixels began life. Follow his journey through video game history by collecting the bit-gems and unlocking each amazing game machine. Collect the 'Specials' and unlock more! Armed with awesome power-ups, Pixel must vanquish the enemy pixels and bosses who try to thwart him throughout his quest.

With over 100 fun packed levels of platforming goodness! Chock-full of tricks & traps, double jump challenges, gravity inversion, special power-ups, puzzles and loads of different enemies.

GAME FEATURES:

Inspired by the 8 & 16-bit Eras
Take a journey with the wizened Professor Pixel and revisit the golden age of gaming. Featuring a massive variety of beautiful pixel art from classic 8 & 16-bit game systems, such as Amiga, SNES, Mega Drive, Commodore 64, Apple II, Game Boy, NES, Atari 2600, ZX Spectrum & Master System!

Revisit Classic Games

Loads of Secrets!
Dozens of special secrets to uncover and experience. From silly little touches through to great big mega-epic secrets! Look out for jetpacks, bubbles to fly, trampolines, hidden rooms and maps, aeroplanes, skateboards and even a Sinclair C5!

Awesome Power-ups
