Video Review: ‘Life of Pixel’ is a Hands-on History Lesson in Retro Gaming

Life of Pixel, developed by Super Icon Limited, takes players on a platforming journey through more than ten classic gaming systems, from the Atari 2600 to the ZX Spectrum, paying homage to the 8 and 16-bit console years. Of course, that also means that the era’s notorious difficulty, lack of checkpoints, and need for trial and error return, so remember to take a deep breath and count to whatever number makes you feel better. Featuring beautiful pixel art, lovingly reproduced chip music, and a plethora of secrets and items to collect, and hardcore challenge.

Life of Pixel is available now on the Wii U eShop. For more of a look at the game, check out our video review above.
