Simple but funSantaSteamKeys | July 27, 2014 | See all SantaSteamKeys's reviews »
In the last few years, pixel graphics have become a pretty big thing and Dead Pixels is one of the games that helped make the style so popular. It's quite a simple game so there isn't very much to say about it, but it's a good game simply because it's fun. It's fun because everyone enjoys shooting zomies all day - if you say you don't, you're probably a liar!
Overall, Dead Pixels is a very good game and it can even cause some nostalgia for older gamers. The game features some of the nicest pixel graphics I've seen so far, and it's very possible to spend hours playing it. Oh, and it's current price, you have NO excuse not to try it out!
Retro Design Not Always = GoodDodec1 | May 5, 2014 | See all Dodec1's reviews »
First things first, the art style. This is one of the only things that I like about this game, I find that the way it shows it characters and enemies very cool and appealing. But playing to nostalgia won't alone make a game good. I have played this game for about 5 hours or so about 3 on the XBOX and 2 on the PC. I find that this game lacks variety and it gets stale very quickly, it does however have quite a few weapons and weapon types. But I found that it din't matter they all fell the same! When I shoot a shotgun in a game I want to fell that it would do more damage and sound much more devastating, than the default pistol! But they just feel like re textures, one of its only 2 redeeming qualities is its price 3$. Only buy this if you have some money left over to burn or just want a laugh for a bit, otherwise. Don't buy this game!

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.
