If you’re a bit of an iPhone gaming fiend, then we think we’ve found your perfect fix. If you haven’t already, head over to the app store and invest a mere 59p for a whole lot of retro gaming action in return.
Bulkypix are known for their highly addictive, colourful, cartoony games, and Pix n Rush love is no exception. What they seem to have done with this game is extract all of your favourite aspects from games of years gone by and regurgitate them into one beautifully made app. At first glance, you may be forgiven that this is merely a cliché remake of an 80’s Atari classic. Arguably, the classics are the best, but the app store has been inundated with poor remakes that just don’t do the originals justice. This however, is in a different league. Elements of retro graphics are updated with hypnotic colours and softened edges and with a soundtrack that will keep you hooked for hours.
But let’s not all get carried away by the fancy visuals and Space Invaders style musical scores. What about the gameplay? Well the good news is that gameplay far outweighs everything else. Simplicity is combined with fast-paced action; the perfect formula for addictive gaming. There are several different game modes to choose from and levels change in style and appearance frequently to keep you on your toes.
If you’re a fan of the old arcade and platform games, this game comes highly recommended. There are elements of early Mario with a touch of Pac Man thrown in for good measure. It’s also worth checking out Bulkypix’s other games available at the App Store.
