FLIX THE FLEA is the high flying platformer from one-man game studio, Psychotic Psoftware.
Flix is a flea who lives on a Dog, who lives on a space-exploring rocket-ship. While exploring a new planetoid, Flix takes an unfortunate nosedive into a chasm. It's your mission to guide Flix up and out of monster infested caves in the hopes of getting him back to his rocket-ship and the sanctuary of his cozy doggie home.
Highly inspired by the wonderful 8-bit classics, Flix The Flea returns to an almost forgotten sub-genre of cutesome high-jumping platform games. With a host of challenging environments and features, Flix creates just the right balance of fun and frustration for a very entertaining & addictive gaming experience!
Wow, this game is a major blast from the past. Back in the late 80's, I had a game on my Commodore 64 called Boogaboo. Basically, you had to help a grasshopper jump up a series of cliffs to try and escape before a mean old Pterodactyl grabbed you. About the only controls you used were the left and right arrows, and by holding down the arrow you could control the amount of force you jumped with. Well, guess what, Flix the Flea is basically the reincarnation of that great old game. The same story (only now you have a flea) the same basic movements (left and right using controlled jumps), and the same enemy (a Pterodactyl). There have been a few extra features added (like stars and bugs to eat, and a few smaller pterodactyls) but this is pretty much the same game. Now, will you like it? Well, that depends on what you want. If you want a game with great graphics, this isn't it. If you want a game with complex gameplay, this isn't it. If you want a game with a great story, this isn't it. However, if you want a simple game that's both fun and challenging (especially when the cliffs get smaller and closer together? this is it. If you want a fun game that you can kill a few minutes with? this is it. If you want a game that reminds you of gaming in the old days? This is it. I for one am loving this game!!!
Flix The Flea is a game where you control a flea who is lost on an uncharted planet (You were living on the back of a dog who was sent to space until you got lost). It's a platforming game with a very disturbing gameplay. See, you don't control Flix just like any other character. All you can do is jumping to left or the right. You can adjust the power of your leap and that's all. It's like playing moving in Worms but worse. The visuals are not great and the game can be frustrating because of its jump mechanic. Don't play this game if you can get mad easily...
