Commander Pixman is a retro-action platformer

Android is doing the dusting to old style pixelated arcade games when we thought that genre was dead. Commander Pixman is the proof that Atari-like games are livelier than ever.

You embody a space explorer (made up by, let's say 4 or 5 pixels) which mission is to advance through platforms full of obstacles and dangers while killing aliens on his way. There are over 135 levels to master, hundreds of aliens to kills and lots of handicaps to avoid (mines, prickles, cliffs, etc.). However, there are also gravitational platforms and other items that will help you to beat each level.

We forgot to say that times matter: your score (three-stars score system) will depend on how fast you're killing the enemies and reaching the goal. As its developers say: be ready to die, and die a lot. Lucky you: you're not in a real Arcade and you won't see "Insert coin" after got killed.

If you're fond of pixelated graphics, you'll love this game, otherwise, you eyes will bleed. Controls are intuitive due to a simple screenpad: left/right arrows to move on the left side, a button for jumping and another one to attack, both on the right side. Retro electro music is just lovely.

In a nutshell: lots of levels, retro-feeling and addictive gameplay. Recommendable.

    I can't play it without a touch screen. So this gets a higher rating on my phone then on my computer. If this worked with a keyboard or gamepad I'd rank it 5*.

    it brings back nostalgic 4-bit graphics, fun 2d shooter gameplay & fun challange. the enimies in this game are aliens. It's also fun to see how fast you can beat a level. but the things that lack are it's just singleplayer & there's not that many worlds in the game.

    This game is very addiciting, but I really would want to rate 5 if the controls for the jumping wouldn't lose balance.
