They Bleed Pixels is a fiendishly difficult action platformer inspired by H.P. Lovecraft and classic horror. Rendered in a distinct visual style that blends pixel art with paper and ink textures, They Bleed Pixels is a singular mix of intense platforming and fierce beat-em-up action.Read full description

If there wasn't a "novice" mode (that's still hard, but more reasonable) this would be harder to recommend. That mode was the most fun I had overall (at least at first), and I thought the difficulty there was just about perfect (at first). Regular difficulty can grow on you too, even though it can feel unreasonable at times. But that apparent unreasonableness I later realized it was often due to not knowing what to do to get past an area reliably. Once you know the levels and how to get through them. Once you come back to get the things you missed (all kills, all pages, A ranks, etc) with all the knowledge you learned as you struggled through the first time. That's when this game really shines.
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.
imagine super meat boy with more gore and actual combat and bam you've got TBP in a nutshell. i recommend this game at a discounted price because its been around to long for $10 not because its not worth $10.
Bear in mind that I've only yplayed 3 levels (+ the prologue) so take everything I say with a grain of salt. I feel like this game tried to be a little bit of Super Meat Boy but also simething else. The problem is that Super Meat Boy had absolutely perfect controlls. Every mistake you made was your own fault. And I definately don't fell like that here. Each time you take damage, you are flung in a direction which you can't controll. The levels which have "slippery floor" are a nightmare because you are simply unable to stand still. And attacking enemies flings you back uncontrollably. The combat is extremely unforgiving, where you need to press the button exactly right, and that timing seems really weird and hard to do acccurately.
It's kinda like Super Meat Boy, but with a lot of action, in the sense that it involves attacks and strategies to kill the monsters. The pixel style looks pretty cool too, and all in all, the game feels very fresh. It's really worth the money
