The Gameplay

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.

The Graphics

All handcrafted pixel art.

The Music

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.

The Story

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

Quite entertaining

Not very difficult (a big plus for me), and it made me smile and even laugh out loud. Nice job

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!

Tiptup2 ,

Worst game ever.

When I see point and click adventure games, I think they are games where you go and explore and enjoy moving around, along with, well pointing and clicking. One good example is Mario and the music box. But this game is nothing like that, nor any other good point and click game. It is poorly made with bad controls, insanely slow dialog, and most importantly, an insanely long and boring tutorial. It took me half an hour just to get through, and that's not including the parts of the game I played. Maybe if it was free, I wouldn't be writing this review right now, but instead, it costs 2 dollars! In conclusion, I would not suggest buying this game if your a customer, and if you're a game developer, if you want people to like this, you better get a major update!!!

Developer Response ,

Did you even play the game? Which tutorial are you talking about? You probably only wanted to promote your own game, which by the way will never reach the App Store because of copyright infringement.
