PIXEL! PS3 Has A European Release Date

News Platformer Playstation 3 Sony

PIXEL!, the third entry of the excellent Arkedo Series, will grace the Playstation Store on the 28th of September. The game, however, isn’t being developed by Arkedo alone. This time around, they have co-developed the game with fellow French developer PastaGames, who developed Maestro Jump In Music, a rhythm/platformer hybrid. Staying the same is the publisher, which is Sanuk Games. Expect to pay €1.99 / £1.59.

PIXEL! follows Pix The Cat in a world of white squares and a blue background. Even though there are the usual platformer mechanics, the game has some unique features, the big feature being the use of a magnifying glass to investigate some pixelated blocks. You may already have met Pix the Cat in PIX’N LOVE RUSH, a game released to much critical and public praise on PlayStation Minis, iPhone and iPad.

While PIX’N LOVE RUSH was built around short scoring-oriented sessions, “PIXEL!” is a more traditional platform adventure. And while PIX’N LOVE RUSH was constrained to tiny handheld screens, “PIXEL!” takes full advantage of your expensive HDTV: the blue halo surrounding big fat pixels had never looked so good!

Check out some screenshots below and have your say on the game.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
