  • Summary: From the hypnotic neon landscape and constant barrage of spraying bullets to the way the playing field bends around at the edges of the screen to replicate the look of an old arcade cabinet monitor, everything about the latest entry in the ever-creative PixelJunk series from Q-Games seems designed to push your nostalgia button.
  • Pros: Gorgeous neon art style, Creative stage designs, Impressive boss fights
  • Cons: Short length and limited replay, Weapon button mapping is awkward, Multiplayer co-op isn't well implemented

PixelJunk SideScroller

  • Excerpt: Small, quiet PixelJunk SideScroller studio Q-Games is one of two prominent developers based in Kyoto. (The other is not-so-small-or-quiet Nintendo.) The ancient capital of Japan and a bastion of artisanal tradition, Kyoto suits Q-Games well. Its developers design their wares with the confident wisdom of old-world crafters, like the ones who forge blades in samurai flicks. They value patient simplicity over bombast, and that approach is evident in their PixelJunk series.

Pixeljunk Sidescroller

  • Conclusion: Pixeljunk Sidescroller on nimensä mukaisesti sivultapäin kuvattu räiskintäpeli. Pelaaja ohjastaa pientä avaruusalusta, joka kolmen eri aseensa turvin räjäyttelee vihollisia palasiksi pitkien pisteketjujen ja miljoonien pisteiden toivossa. Peli rakentuu nimenomaan pisteidenkeräämisen varaan, sillä erilaisia kenttiä on pelissä vain 13 kappaletta. Useimpien läpipelaamisessa menee maksimissaan noin 10 minuuttia, joten kovin pitkästä pelistä ei ole kysymys.
  • Pros: Taitoa ja tarkkuutta painottava pelimekaniikka, ulkoasu yhdistelee onnistuneesti uutta ja vanhaa
  • Cons: Todella vähän sisältöä, peli painottaa samojen kenttien jauhamista parempien pisteiden toivossa
