They Bleed Pixels Review

They Bleed Pixels, one word, … beat your face in .. (ok, maybe more than one). This is a pixelized platformer by Spooky Squid Games. Controls are pretty simple but take a little to perfect. And the graphics are pretty good for pixel art. Now about what the game is... a platformer with some crazy jumps and obstacles that require precise timing. Creatively killing enemies and finding hidden items and power ups. You get graded at the end of each dream sequence for the amount of blood you spilt and how creative your kill combos were. The check pint system is also very unique in that you collect blood from your kills and after you have collected so much you can then stand in place to cast your check point.

Gameplay : 9 – A jump and an attack button that uses some good directional combos to perform different moves. Simple but takes a little to get used to.
Graphics : 8 – A mix between pixel art and paper and ink styles. A very neat blend.
Sound : 6 – Nothing special to help make game darker but then again the specialness of this game is the unique gameplay and visuals.
Length : A lot of time. A single stage can take between 20 – 40 minutes. Has about 40 stages or so.
Price : $9.99
Recommendation : If you like good challenging platformers then this is for you. If you get nerd rage easy, this game is not recommended.
