Game description

They Bleed Pixels ist ein teuflisch schwerer Action-Plattformer, inspiriert von H.P. Lovecraft und klassischem Horror. In seinem unnachahmlichen Stil, der Pixelart mit handgezeichneten Texturen vereint, bietet They Bleed Pixels eine einmalige Mischung aus anspruchsvollen Plattformelementen und wilden Beat-em-up Gefechten. Das Kampfsystem ist mit nur einer Taste zwar einfach gehalten, überrascht aber dennoch mit Tiefe und Vielseitigkeit. Auf die Taste zu hämmern, bringt Ihnen keine Vorteile, die Schattenmonster in Sägen, Abgründe oder Stacheln zu treten, hingegen schon. Dank eines einzigartigen Systems, können Sie durch elegante Kills Ihre eigenen Checkpoints verdienen und setzen. Je ausgefallener die Kills, desto schneller können Sie einen neuen Checkpoint platzieren.

Geschichte:
Als ein junges Mädchen an der Lafcadio Akademie für verhaltensauffällige junge Damen ankommt, ist sie keinesfalls auf die grausamen Alpträume vorbereitet, die sie Nacht für Nacht heimsuchen und in fremde Welten schicken. Schlimmer noch, ihre Träume dringen in ihr richtiges Leben ein und verwandeln ihren Körper nach und nach in die dämonische Form ihres nächtlichen Schreckens. Wird sie es schaffen, das geheimnisvolle, blutbefleckte Buch zu zerstören, was der Ursprung all ihrer Probleme zu sein scheint oder wird die Verwandlung von Mädchen zu klauenschwingendem Ungeheuer letztendlich abgeschlossen?

Hauptmerkmale:

    Extrem präzise Steuerung: Statt komplizierte Combos zu lernen und auf Tasten zu hämmern können Sie mit nur einer Taste geschickte Angriffskombinationen ausführen. Die exakte Kontrolle über Ihren Charakter erlaubt Ihnen, punktgenau zu manövrieren, während Sie mit Doppel- und Seitensprüngen der Gravitation trotzen.

    Elf riesige Level zum Durchkämpfen und Erkunden, jedes mit eigenem Grafikstil und eigener Musik. Schalten Sie zusätzliche Gast-Level von Indie-Spieleentwicklern, basierend auf ihren eigenen Werken, frei: They Bleed Ponycorns, They Bleed Stardust.

    Das einzigartige Checkpoint-System belohnt Sie für ausgefallene Kills mit einem tragbaren Speicherpunkt. Behalten Sie ihn, um mehr Punkte zu erhalten oder setzen Sie ihn, um Ihren Fortschritt zu sichern.

    Werden Sie ein meisterhafter Monster-Schlächter mit individueller Level-Bewertung, Online-Ranglisten für Geschwindigkeit und Punktzahl, sowie über 100 fordernde Errungenschaften. Es gibt noch viel zu tun, nachdem Sie das Spiel beendet haben.

    Großartige, bewegte Pixelart-Comics erzählen die Geschichte eines jungen Mädchens, das von unheimlichen Alpträumen heimgesucht wird.

    Electronic-Soundtrack von DJ Finish Him (alias Shaun Hatton) zusammengesetzt aus Synthesizern, unkonventionellen Instrumenten und Dingen, die man normalerweise nicht für Musik benutzt.

Good and challenging platformer with combat

They Bleed Pixels is a challenging platformer that adds the additional obstacle of enemies that you will need to fight on top of the spikes and traps everywhere. You can build up an ability that allows you to set your own checkpoints. Like all games like this it is best played with a controller. It's a fun, challenging, and good looking game that is worth trying out for fans of difficult platformers. For the low additional price the soundtrack version can be worth buying if you want to further support the developers, it's good in game though it probably isn't likely to be something you will listen to outside of it much.

Fantastic presentation, cheap deaths

When I started They Bleed Pixels, I was amazed that the game hadn't received more attention. The combat is fun, the platforming flows incredibly well, and the blend of retro-style pixel art and Lovecraft-inspired designs hooked me the moment I reached the title screen. The checkpoint system seemed innovative, as well, and I really enjoyed collecting all the pages in each level. It took me a few hours of gameplay to see any flaws. And really, They Bleed Pixels only -has- two problems: the checkpoint system, and the floaty, slightly unresponsive feeling of playing the game with a controller. Unfortunately, as the game's difficulty rises, it's harder and harder to ignore these problems, which were responsible for more deaths and frustration than the enemies and the levels themselves. This game is often compared to Super Meat Boy, and for good reason--the tough-as-nails platforming, the gore, and the retro aesthetic are all very reminiscent of SMB. The problem is that Super Meat Boy's short levels, incredibly tight controls, and instant respawn work quite well to make the difficulty genuine! You learn from your deaths, and you can use that information right away. They Bleed Pixels' weak point is the combination of its long levels, and the checkpoint system that is intended to make those levels possible to play and complete. Giving the player the ability to place their own checkpoints after they collect enough blood is an interesting idea, and I could see it working well in other games with different playstyles. The problem with this system is that the player doesn't have the same information as the developers--we cannot consider the entirety of a level without first playing it, so we couldn't possibly know the best places to put a checkpoint. This leads to sections that were intended to be short and difficult becoming long, drawn-out, and full of repetition. The player learns how to complete a section, but has to successfully finish it every time we want to learn about the next. If the game had a traditional checkpoint system, a less floaty game feel, and possibly a camera that was spaced further away from the character, it would be an instant classic, and easily one of my favorites. Though I would still recommend getting it on sale, They Bleed Pixels falls just short of being a hidden gem.

Bloody, Grusesome, and Fun!

Lets start of by saying one thing, the soundtrack for this game is great! Now, the game itself is not too easy, and gets increasingly more difficult. For those old-school gamers that like the challenge, this is an instant recommendation. And with 120+ Steam achievements, this will definitely keep you hooked for hours. Not only that, it has a few extra in-game unlockables such as more levels and artwork, which are always a nice little addition.

Great Game

They Bleed Pixels is a great 2D platformer for those of you who like their games challenging. There are nit that many levels in it, even moreso when compared to, say, Super Meat Boy, but they are also longer than those of the meat. Graphics are not jaw-dropping, but they are certainly stylish. The music is also very good. The gameplay, aside from the jump-and-run mechanics, also has some beat-them-up elements, which are not really complex. I am not sure if it would have worked if they had went for something more complex. You start each level with three hearts and if you lose them, you die. The game also has a checkpoint mechanic, which allows you to replenish your hearts and not start form the beginning when you die. On that note, it is a lot easier than Super Meat Boy, but it is still a formidable challenge to beat.

Awesome platformer

They Bleed Pixels is a marvelous, solid hidden gem. It's like Super Meat Boy: beautiful, excruciatingly hard yet very satisfying. If you appreciate pixel-art you'll love the graphics and the animations are really well done. The music is also amazing, the soundtrack is worth the extra money. The core gameplay and design is really similar to Super Meat Boy's even though the levels are much longer (there are checkpoints) and you can actually fight your enemies. The combat is fun and it's a good addition to the platforming gameplay. The environment is really diverse, so you won't get bored fast. Overall the game is a bit unfair sometimes, but other than that I can't really hold anything against it. A must for old-school gamers!
