Pixel Ripped 1989 reviews and comments

I've been waiting for this Title for a long time and now it's finally here! Was it worth the Wait? Pixel Ripped by ARVORE Immersive is one noticing from the Start that it's a Tribute to the 1980s. In the crude Story, we must save the real World from the Enemies of the digital Pixel World. So far as good. One plays the little video Game-obsessed girl named Nicola, with her Gear Kid handheld console, reminiscent of her extremely "Gameboy" and "Gamegear," she has to play through several Levels to defeat an evil Goblin named Cyblin Lord who made it Has managed to figure out how to spread Chaos and Destruction outside the Video game in Reality. Pixel Ripped didn't appear by chance in VR, though, because instead of just looking boring at the Console and mastering a 2D pixel adventure, we're having a Journey through the Dimensions with Nicola ... Pixel Ripped 1989 is split into four Levels, each of which takes place in a different Location in Reality. There is a simple InGame tutorial. As is customary with Old-school video games, you have three Lives. These are not lost if you die in the 2D range-that is, on the Gear Kid, but if you don't keep an eye On the grumpy teacher and distract her from time to time with a Spit ball by shooting it at certain Objects in the Room. When "Mrs. Pay Attention" comes to the Desk, we are sobbed to evil by her, and with that you lose a Life. So always hellishly watch out in Class! Allegedly you can play the Game as a practiced 89s in about 2 Hours. Normal Players, like me, certainly need many times the Time. 7.5h, to be exact! :) If you're honest and remember how difficult some late 80s and 90s Jump ' N ' runs were, with Spots that often required "intense Reps" to master them, Pixel Ripped 1989 does that really well ... Sometimes you want to throw the Controller across the Room ... It helps the Immersion enormously NOT to play with VR controllers, but with the normal Gamepad; Xbox controllers or the like. The Controls are very simple and are limited to Jumping and shooting/running. In each Level there are the mandatory Coins to collect, which have two Effects. Once they transform the 2D character girl from a Pixel pile into a complete Sprite, reminiscent of Mega Drive and SNES titles, for example. In addition, the Coins allow the Character to shoot faster. If you get wounded, the Figure loses the Pixels it has collected as Coins and the 2D sprite begins to morph back to its blocky former Self. Cube! Should there be another Part in the End? And is this a Poll at the end of the Game? Who knows, who knows ... Even by the Way Pixel Ripped is told in 1989, it's a purely seated experience best played with a Game Controller. Pixel Ripped 1989 is already a special VR experience. A Game that takes you back to your Childhood, including the fantastic Ideas that were buzzing around in your Head at the time. As far as you got big in the late 80s. But also a Recommendation for all Nostalgia fans! More Reviews from the 80s: https://store.steampowered.com/curator/32170554/
