This game doesn't have much lasting power, but the price point is just right for what it is.
It's a fun little diversion that never outstays its welcome. The game plays well, and the art, though pixellated, is nicely done and likely to bring a smile to your face.
A good value at the asking price.
ONE OF THE BEST SCROLLING-RETRO-KIND ZOMBIE GAMES OUT THEREUnbenannte | Jan. 5, 2014 | See all Unbenannte's reviews »
I bought another game and spent quite some money, so I had only 2.99 left and I started searching for a good co-op game (I have brothers) and we like to kill zombies, suddenly I find this title “Dead Pixels” and I start reading about it, I see it has co-op and the price is good so I decide to buy it. The game looked kind of old and I wasn’t expecting much of it, for my surprise we start playing and a few hours later we couldn’t stop it was just so nice, fun and smooth. I think the price is way too low for what it should be, I would pay 10$ for it definitely. I say if you like zombies and have little brothers, this title is a must buy, and paying 2.99 is not making justice to the game but its fine.
BTW Dead Pixels 2 is on its way, the developer is expecting to release the beta this year (2014), there is some exiting futures coming, like online multiplayer and up to 4 local co-op, plus another ton of stuff. So buy it and support DP2. Hope this review helps you.
Surprisingly enjoyable and very affordableJokin93 | Dec. 3, 2013 | See all Jokin93's reviews »
I got this game for free with the purchase of another and I must say that had it not been for that promotion I wouldn't have purchased it and I would have missed a ton of fun.
On one hand, this game looks like one that you would play in the 80s and its name isn't trying to hide that in any way, it's the pixels that make the game unique and enjoyable after all.
On the other hand, this game manages to surprise by adding the use of the mouse and combining it perfectly with the pixelated zombie survival 2D gameplay. Other great additions include upgrades, an inventory and the possibility of entering houses, for the rest you will have to see for yourself and considering the price, you won't regret it.

I originally gained Dead Pixels through a promotion on this site that gave me the game with the purchase of another. Normally, I am not a big fan of pixelated games, but this one had me addicted from the start. With fast pace action and somewhat limited ammo (depending on the level of difficulty you choose), Dead Pixels drags you straight into the zombie apocalypse. If you're looking for an epic storyline, you won't find it here. However, you will find your pulse racing as you run past zombie hordes in a desperate attempt to escape with little to no ammo and only a melee weapon to help you bash through the few stragglers in your way. Hordes can form suddenly and without warning, causing you to keep on your toes for fear of being devoured. This game is, without a doubt, worth the purchase.

Reminds me of River City Ransom + Left 4 Dead. This game has you fighting what amounts to a losing battle until you figure out when you should run and when you should stand and fight. It's 8-bit survival fun-horror like Left 4 Dead with less 'first time seeing a witch' scariness.
You'll find yourself shooting zombies for cash to spend on ammo and supplies, and optionally scavenging in abandoned buildings for more.
There are multiple zombie types, each with different strengths, weaknesses, and tactics. There are several boss types and rare spawns to be found. Many of these are tied to Steam achievements.
The game is very easy at its easiest, which serves as an effective tutorial.
Try beating it on the hardest setting without searching any buildings. It's rough that way. This extra self-imposed challenge makes the game "Nintendo Hard" if that means anything to you. Run out of ammo and you may as well just start over.
I'm still trying to finish it just on the most difficult setting, allowing myself to scavenge and farm each screen. And I still haven't earned every achievement.
It's easy to learn, but very hard at its best. And it stays fun for a long time.
I recommend a gamepad. Your wrists will hurt from spamming that spacebar.
