  • Conclusion: What else can be said about Axel & Pixel that needs to be said? Axel & Pixel is an enjoyable experience through the brief moments that players are able to experience. Visually, it’s a wonderful addition to the Xbox Live Arcade. Though, in the long run, Axel & Pixel doesn’t have enough appeal to keep the interest levels at an all-time high. It wades back and forth between being worth and not worth the 800 MSP price tag.

Axel & Pixel Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Just about every frame of animation in Axel & Pixel is charismatic and humorous making the game an utter joy, even before you solve a puzzle. The dream world setting is another thing that reels you in before you’ve even interacted with it. Painter Axel and his loyal dog Pixel have been trapped within this dream world by, of all things, a big rat.

Axel and Pixel Review

Cheat Code Central
28 May 2010

Absurdly Delightful

26 April 2010
  • Excerpt: HIGH The surreal, abstract nature of the adventure. LOW Putting important collectibles in action sequences without checkpoints. WTF Pretty much everything you see on-screen. As a reviewer who spends a significant amount of time checking out smaller offerings from the various online console services, coming across a title like Axel & Pixel makes the many hours spent downloading, wincing at, and deleting other, lesser titles well worth it.

Fun brainteaser art romp, with unexpected driving levels.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this humorous, logic-based adventure can put brainy kids through a real mental workout. The puzzles are challenging, but all ultimately solvable. Which is why the three vehicle-based levels are such a disappointment. They take the focus away from brainwork and put it on eye-hand coordination—incredibly skillful eye-hand coordination. Unfortunately, there's no way to skip these levels. They put a real damper on an otherwise great game.

  • Summary: I approached " Axel and Pixel " not knowing what to expect but soon found that the presentation and gameplay really drew me in to the game which could be seen as a real sleeper hit on the XBLA service.

  • Summary: With its unique art style and creative puzzles, there's a lot to like about Axel & Pixel. Unfortunately it's marred by a short run time and puzzles that can be easily solved without using any tips. Fans of graphic adventures will have a good time journeying through this exciting dreamscape, but be warned: Axel & Pixel is not for everybody!
