Dead Pixels is another zombie game with dead rising style, the differential are the graphics, it shows how a game can be good without those revolutionary graphics, the gameplay is similar to old games. Even if the graphics are simple they are really nice and even in this style it is cool to be in a zombie apocalypse. This is the zombie game you were looking for when you are bored of other games and wants something more casual in a short time.
Dead Pixels is a 2D sidescroller where you control a survivor during a zombie apocalypse. The game uses 8-bits graphics and looks kinda cool that way. It’s pretty oldschool in the system. You run, you shoot things, you scavenge stuff that you will sell to buy supply in shops. You game can’t simplier than that but don’t think that it makes it bad. On the contrary, Dead Pixels is well made. Even better, the levels are randomly generated! Sure it’s just a side-scroller but it means that every time you play you will loot different things. It’s fun, fast and it’s even better with a friend! However, the multiplayer is local only. Too bad!
With its cute 8-bits graphics and simple gameplay, Dead Pixels is a game made to be sold at a low price, but don't consider it as some forgettable game. On the contrary, Dead Pixels is very fun. It's an old-school sidescrolling run and gun game (Minus the plaforming) where you must fight your way through legions of undead. There is also a bit of survival horror in there (You must collect items to sell them for money to buy your supply) It's simple but very fun and it's even better with a friend to play coop!
For the price, Dead Pixels is a great buy. It's fun, it's just long enough to not overstay its welcome but not feel too short, and it's got a fairly cute artstyle. The controls are respectably decent i suppose. They respond quickly enough, they aren't overcrowded, and the mappings make sense i guess. The gameplay is alright. You go from left to right, killing zombies and looting houses along the way. Occasionally you stop in to a shop and sell some of the loot you picked up for better loot. Sometimes you run into a special zombie, some have ranged attacks, some explode. The sound design is pretty good. The soundtrack is surprisingly ambiant for such a cute looking game, and the noises for the guns and zombies sound pretty decent and beefy most of the time. The graphics are extremely reminiscint of Megaman. I can appreciate that, since it's an 8 bit style that's actually a bit harder to copy than just being 8 bit, but they do a pretty decent job of it. Overall, while the game isn't amazing, for the price it's pretty good. I'd recommend it.
I bought three copies of this game because I liked it so much. My favorite type of game genre is surviving. I would give this a 8/10 on overall experience with this game. I enjoy the experience of having to explore the city for items. Its based on luck, but that's what makes it fun! There is nothing better than running on the road in a city mowing down zombies with a shotgun or machine gun! I would say this game is one of those games where if you don't have nothing better to do why not kill zombies. Nothing can go wrong with killing zombies. I would recommend that if you want a good game for a cheap price go ahead and buy this!
