Classic remake done right
A modern look at the Atari 2600 Adventure. They kept the sound effects and look from the original but changed up the gameplay a bit. It’s still all about finding the color keys to the castles to get to the Trophy and exit the level. It’s very maze oriented and like the original the rooms warp you around so it isn’t a straightforward maze. There is usually a map somewhere on each level to help you out (and yes you can take it with you because these levels are complex!). Many of the stages are in the dark. There are a few new enemies, and a storyline. If you enjoy adventure don’t even hesitate to pick this up. Yes it’s a pain to swipe to everywhere (please add controller support) but if you can overlook that this is a brilliant effort by a 2 person team. Excellent.
A beautiful love letter to retro gaming
When I was a kid I played my Atari 2600 for countless hours. Simply put I had a blast with that machine and I still enjoy playing those old school Atari games today. Adventure was one of those Atari games I played a lot and I lamented the fact that it never received a proper follow up. Until now. Pixa is THE follow up to Adventure that fans like myself have been waiting for. Graphics and music are superb and the quests have that "complex simplicity" that good Atari games would deliver. While updates or follow ups to Pixa would be nice I'm glad that the game exists in the first place. Buy it!!
This game is a great remake of Adventure. You get a mid game surprise once you collect all the trophys. STUCK on world 27 because the yellow key isn't anywhere! Otherwise great game.
Edit: I beat world 27 but right now the game will randomly stop letting me move or close the map. If i reset with the map on, the map is still there. All I can do @ that time is pick up and put down items.
