Paul Pixel - The Awakening
By Xoron GmbH
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
An ordinary guy forced to defend the world from an alien invasion of infectious zombies. A point-and-click adventure with beautiful pixel art and bombastic retro sound.
"It looks great, it controls wonderfully, and it's got a cheeky sense of humor" - Pocket Gamer: 8/10
Featured in App Store section "New Games We Love".
Gameplay is similar to old games like Maniac Mansion, Zac McKraken, Beneath A Steel Sky and Monkey Island, but the game has a unique interface that is optimized for touch. Unlike most other point-and-click adventures the player actually holds the current item in his hand.
All handcrafted pixel art.
All game music only uses original Commodore C64 SID chip sounds, but polyphonic and with professional effects. The main theme of the Paul Pixel game was composed by the Pixel Lover Orchestra and is called "They Want To Get Us". Other chiptune highlights are "The Awakening" by the underground duo Retro Arcade Boys and "The Giant Meteor" by 8-Bit Factory.
An average guy called Paul Pixel discovers that the part of the city where he lives was put in quarantine. Apparently there has been a zombie outbreak. He needs to get out...
Of course, a short time later he needs to save the whole earth from this zombie apocalypse.
Playtime: 2.5 - 3 hours

What's New in Version 2.0
Only minor changes.
Loved it! A nice blast from the past in old school adventure games
A few tweaks would make it perfect. I often talk to the Sam person until they repeat. If you could move or tap to cancel a repeat conversation.
Also if tapping the edge of the screen it would be nice that you can change direction instead going to the next screen and coming back if you change your mind half way across the screen.
Wonderful old school adventure a little short but worth the price of admission. I really enjoyed it. Keep up the great work!
Fills the p&c adventure hunger
Good, fun, monkey islandish.
