What people are saying about 4NR:
"Gorgeously low-res in its intentionally restricted pixel-art style." - IGN

"The first thing that 4NR got right is authenticity. Like all P1XL games so far, it either was, or could be, a game on a C64 or other early console. This one shoots for art house, atmospheric LCD/Gameboy in its presentation, and I like it." - Matt Turpin

"Please, insert coin(s) and try 4NR! Cool retro game LCD style." - Zaxxon_1(Stefano Ferrari)

Scanlines OPTION Please!

Great game, great feel, great chip music, great theme. Just want to say, that ANYONE who makes this type of retro Game MUST always add a Scanlines and Video filter option (Dot Emu games here in the App store is a great example) although if its a Gameboy type game it only needs Scanlines...why???? Because every 8bit game looks stupid on a VGA type screen, hence it must emulate the lines of the old type Monitors, TV's and CRT screens. PLEASE add the Option to add Scanlines to this and any 8bit or 16bit type game. Also iCade and other controller support...Always! This should be standard.
Awesome Game! get it folks.....

Fun but flawed

I keep coming back to this game. Is it fun? Yes. The graphics are simple but have character, and overall the presentation does create a sense of urgency. However! The controls need work. Too often will I jump instead of move, or stand in place instead of move in the desired direction. When the movement is as simple as it is, it shouldn't take more than a few minutes to get the controls down but unfortunately I still find my progress stalled by mis-jumps. That is certainly a source of frustration, but the rest is still fun enough to make me come back and try again.

The most allegorical Gameboy homage of all time

4NR is a good game to play--actually two games in one. But it's the kind of game you'll want to play now, so that in five years, when TED talks are being given about its deep allegorical message and the sneaky way games tell stories that are much larger than the (blocky) pixels on the screen, you'll be able to say that you were a 4NR fan before it went mainstream.
