Pixelle is a simple, wonderfully robust arcade-style game for Android devices.
Developed by CS27 Studios, pixelle is a remarkably fun and simple game that is a mix of Pong and side-scrolling retro arcade games.
Pixelle is one of those addictive games that seems so simple at first yet takes a certain level of skill to master, and it’s perfect for players of all ages.
In pixelle, your task is to keep the pixelle from hitting any of the blocks that constantly arrive on screen (so instead of bouncing off of them like in Pong, players try to avoid them).
What makes pixelle so unique is that the only way to avoid those blocks, earn points, and collect the pulsar is by tilting your Android device and dodging those chunky lines.
The unique gameplay controls and the endless map make pixelle a blast to play. Pixelle’s level of replayability is great, and it can become slightly addictive (not in a bad way) as players try to beat their last high score and collect the pulsar.
Pixelle also has over 15 achievements that will keep players coming back to try to earn them. With maps constantly changing, pixelle definitely requires a level of concentration that other similar Android games simply don’t offer.
One of the things we liked about pixelle was how there is a small learning curve at the beginning related to how the player physically controls his or her device (e.g. tilting it too fast will make the pixelle hard to control), and that pixelle wasn’t just a tap-and-play type of game.
Instead, pixelle is more like the classic real world Wood Labyrinth game mixed with Pong and arcade scrollers.
Overall, we enjoyed playing pixelle and marveled at how such a simple game can be so fun and exciting.
Appearance and Layout
The appearance of pixelle is simple, minimalist, and subdued. Salmon-colored menu icons with dark blue and light blue hues make for a pleasant appearance.
The layout is easy to use with only three options to select from the main menu (Play, Stats, and How To Play) and four small social media icons at the top (website, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for CS27). Simply tap on Play and start tilting your device to get a feel for it.
Pixelle is $0.99 to buy and only 1.5 MB to download. The replayability is incredible and the gameplay is smooth and well-designed.
Overall, we felt that pixelle was worth the cost and the download, especially since it offers hours of fun playtime. Check it out and let us know if you agree.
pixelle requires Android 4.3 and up. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
