In this non-shooting shoot 'em up, you are a single white pixel who can absorb the bodies, abilities, and weapons of every enemy pixel you collect. It's up to you to stay either a small and nimble ship, or turn large and powerful. Just remember: protect your core white pixel, because every mistake could be your last.

Every single enemy wave is randomized, and your size and power changes for every pixel you collect and destroy. There's never one strategy that works for very long, because every playthrough is an entirely new experience.

Each difficulty has new enemies, weapons, and bosses! Change your strategies and push your limits in each mode. See how you match up against friends and other players in the online leaderboards.

Two pixels are better than one. In local co-op mode, you and a friend can both collect enemy pixels independently. When one of you dies, the other can revive you simply by touching your pixel.

For an unforgettable challenge, Boss Rush mode will bombard you with all the bosses you've encountered throughout the game. How many can you survive?

Pixel Galaxy reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
I Catch, Catch!.../Ame Over/It's just a paradise Bullet Hell. Of course, I expected that the game would be something close to the retro style, pixel, etc., but the key chip flips the game and the idea of the genre as a whole. What's The point, Carl? When any opponent appears you have 3 options for action: A.) Avoid it b.) Try to shoot at.) Grab!! Have You ever seen Danmacu (| | Bullet Hell), where your power is increased directly in proportion to the importance of greed, agility and tactics? And What else and getting the enemy power is exactly for yourself? If you show unimaginable skill, you can easily claim "Who is The Boss Now?". The Truth of the game you oh how will not let it do so easy. Easy-Busy In the Game 6 modes of difficulty: Easiest (the Super), Easier (Easy), Easy (easily), Normal (normal), Normaler (normal:D), Normalest (normal! xD). And to postpone burning bricks you will be already on Easy. About what is going on better not to speak, but to put a candle for all the merged ships. Now imagine the gameplay. Your ship is 1 pixel. You RAM Dock to yourself at once several blocks-engines (white-starting), and then begins to start. Do you Like opponents with fan-round shooting? Try to get close without dying, and maybe you will take it, docking and starting to attack all around exactly as well. You Liked the Flying Jedi sword? Even a few? Okay, take it. And try not to about @ the time received a second earlier fan. The whole game is built on such mechanics. Try to get more and lose less. And there's a ton of bosses in the game. And They BOSSES with the whole big letters. What they are doing often is going on sadism. Do you Have a long boat? Okay, now the boss is just going to pick him up. Exactly in half, with its laser. Maybe the game seemed easy to you? Try this boss, who switches the keys right after his appearance. Why "Shut Up and take My Money"?: Fresh, cool ideas for the genre in spite of the fact that everything is beautiful here. Flickers, etc., in all this chaos you don't feel like an escalating epilepsy. Yes, it is colorful, but it is in moderation, and the colors are always contrasted in the right places. The graphics are fine. The Madness of minimalism. The main roles are pixels. And here is music that resembles something from the period of 8-bit consoles:) Hardcore. But Despite the fact that the game is EXTREMELY difficult, you will not tear your hair (in fact, from the Happening hell on Earth you have time to accept that you Khan faster than it comes:D) Even If you feel sorry for the full cost of taking, on a discount is 60r +. This price game pays off easily. There is a co-op for two on one screen! (Need Klava PS\2, the USB limit on pressing problems will give) Search for disadvantages: Cons? It's a Rare case where I don't see them. And all the subjective-it's my claws, not able to pass on Normal D: Score: 6.5 is a Great indie game, with a fresh idea and classroom implementation. * I am not a fan of this genre, but it is this game can make you feel the craving for it, because it is very nice to play * * The game takes under 250MB from the operative, no 4GB nafig It do not need, as indicated in the Minimalki * Your Humble Servant-Curator
