PixelJunk SideScroller review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Attempting to capture old-fashioned, challenging gameplay in this day and age hasn’t been easy for a lot of small developers working on downloadable nostalgia games. Simply making your game difficult isn’t enough – a game can be difficult for the wrong reasons, like bad controls, unintuitive dangers, and unnecessarily punishing checkpoints.
  • Pros: Luminescent visuals and thumping music, Beautifully balanced challenge, Great weapons
  • Cons: Can be difficult to see bullets, Game doesn't even tell you it has co-op, Having only yourself to blame for playing Brutal

PixelJunk Sidescroller

Thunderbolt Games
8 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Q Games and its PixelJunk franchise has made a name for itself by taking existing genres and finding subtle ways to leave its own indelible mark. PixelJunk Sidescroller , their latest work, is sort of a departure for the series because it doesn’t only aim to reinvent the scrolling shooter, but also to painstakingly recreate the venue we grew up playing them in: the 80s’ arcade.

PixelJunk SideScroller Review: Classic Shooting With Style

Game Informer
4 November 2011
  • Conclusion: Concept: A traditional shooter made over in PixelJunk’s high-style visuals and sound Graphics: Designed to look like an old-school arcade cabinet game, the graphics are nonetheless crisp and attractive Sound: Excellent trance-like music will keep you tapping your feet as you play Playability: Once you get a handle on changing weapons, the controls are tight and responsive, if a little touchy Entertainment: Fun for an afternoon, but lacks some of the remarkable innovation...

  • Excerpt: After pulling the trigger on two well-received PixelJunk Shooter games, the series fires again with the bullet-ridden PixelJunk SideScroller. It certainly looks like a blast from the past, but does this style of game still fly? PixelJunk Sidescroller displays convincing artistic aptitude with its vector-style graphics and infectious audio loops.

Pixeljunk Sidescroller (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
31 October 2011
  • Excerpt: What was promising to be an amazing season for PSN, while filled with good games, hasn’t been able to capture that lightning-in-a-bottle - a surprisingly phenomenal downloadable title (the sort that XBLA events always seem to get). This season needs its Flower , Dead Nation , Shatter , or WipEout HD . In steps Q Games with their Pixeljunk series to save us all, or so I’d hoped.
