Life of Pixel is a 2D platformer with pixelart. Wait – where are you going? Okay, so heaps of platformers utilize the same aesthetic but there is a difference with this one. Developer Super Icon made this game to celebrate many classic gaming consoles, which means different levels represent one of 13 different machines.
Systems represented via Life of Pixel’s loving visual recreations include Atari 2600, SNES, and computers such as the ZX Spectrum. Even if you’ve never played some of these systems before you’ll get a nice taste of history while platforming through over 100 levels.
Super Icon have even included exclusive content for Life of Pixel’s Wii U version. If you can’t wait then you can grab the Steam release instead. The game is currently aiming for a Q1 2015 launch.
