  • Excerpt: Within the hallways of Lafcadio Academy for Trouble Young Girls dwells a mysterious teenager who's a frequents its library. There she discovers a peculiar text written in a cryptic language. Little does she suspect that the knowledge gained from this tome serves more to damn than to empower. For after reading passages of the hefty volume, she begins to have terrible lucid nightmares involving animate shadows, enormous saw blades, and gallons upon gallons of blood.

  • Excerpt: There’s a short period at the beginning of They Bleed Pixels , when the game’s teaching you the ropes, in which there’s a little bit of leeway to the difficult. It’s not easy, but it’s also not beating you down, punishing you for every second you wish to play the game. The pixelated art is fantastic and welcoming, the soundtrack groovy. Even the combat has more depth than expected from this kind of 2D platformer.

  • Excerpt: This is compounded by the minimal art-style, and it’s not minimal in a fresh or easy-on-the-eyes way, either. All enemies, and the girl you play (she has no name), are outlined in white and, after a while, it is uncomfortable to look at. I realize art is subjective; look at the game in action and try to imagine committing time to looking at it. The blood and gore seem needless, and the story is very short.
  • Pros: Unique and challenging combat mechanics, lots of cool ways to fight enemies, generally bugless and very easy to navigate, responsive controls
  • Cons: Ugly and distracting graphics, arbitrarily-frustrating challenge, limited freedom in save system, cheesy ’80s

They Bleed Pixels Review

10 September 2012
  • Excerpt: They Bleed Pixels wastes little time explaining its backstory: click Start, and you quickly find yourself in the shoes of a nameless, talons-for-fingers schoolgirl, jumping over spikes and tearing enemies to, well, pixels. Gameplay is a straightforward action-platforming experience, with some enemies placed at regular intervals for you to fight.
  • Pros: Cool aesthetic will appeal to horror and weird-fiction fans, Lots of levels, content, and extras, Solid platforming engine
  • Cons: Controls poorly with a keyboard, Fighting is overly complex

  • Conclusion: They Bleed Pixels mag "nur" ein Indie-Plattformer sein. Aber wie schon Super Meat Boy oder Dustforce schafft es auch TBP ein bekanntes Genre auf grundlegende Elemente herunterzubrechen und sie dann mit einem eigenen Stil in eine neue Richtung zu treiben.

  • Summary: They Bleed Pixels – это жестокая готическая сказка, с кровищей, монстрами и духом произведений ГФЛ, обёрнутых в обложку нетривиального, но вполне доступного и понятного платформера. При учащении пульса при прочтении хотя бы одного пункта в этом списке стоит непременно купить. А потом ещё и саундтрек где-нибудь найти – хороший чиптьюн всегда на вес золота.

  • Excerpt: Un temps prévu sur Xbox Live Arcade, They Bleed Pixels est finalement sorti sur Steam dans l'indifférence générale... C'est bien dommage, car ce jeu d'action / plates-formes est pétri de qualités. Tentons donc de le sortir de l'anonymat.

  • Conclusion: „Zdařilá obdoba hry Super Meat Boy, jež sice tolik nevyniká, přesto však nabízí hodiny povedené zábavy. Akorát se připravte, že budete umírat, umírat a... umírat!

  • Excerpt: They Bleed Pixels è un picchiaduro a piattaforme di Spooky Squid Games già uscito negli USA alla fine di agosto. Gli autori hanno scelto per la grafica un aspetto deliberatamente rétro, con ambientazioni buie, di sapore gotico e lovecraftiano. Sorge spontaneo il raffronto con titoli come N/N+ , The Dishwasher e Super Meat Boy , per il ritmo veloce e gli ambienti ricchi di pericoli.
