"Pixelated story"

Reviewed by / Nov 30, 2012

Rico is a pixelated platformer an interesting plot

Rico and Nameless are brothers representing Evil and Good, as a pixelated version of Cain and Abel. An eternal struggle that got unbalanced when Rico (the black evil brother) took Nameless' powers away. You embody Nameless (the white good brother) in the crusade to recover his powers.

Thus, you will have to run across the levels, jump over obstacles, climb mountains, explore caves, swim through water... and many more. Depending on the difficulty level you choose, falling will hurt or not, you'll have endless lives or not. Select the one you think you're able to beat and be ready to fly with a jetpack, hop on moving platforms and jump over acid pits.

Game's difficulty increases after each level, so you better find upgrades to boost your skills or there'll be no way to surpass new challenges. There are four difficulty levels in this full version as well as 4 different worlds and up to 32 levels.

If you're a pixels lover, you're going to freak out with this game. You can even count them on your fingers. Controls are basic: two direction arrows and a button for jumping. That's it. Good game.

    Easily the best platformer for mobile OSes out there. I would like for kit Kat full screen mode. Also toast notifications unnecessarily, abruptly, and annoyingly pause the game. Especially bothersome when downloading lots of updates in the background. Please fix?

    It's a very great game. Only thing I don't like is that the buttons are a little tiny. Sometimes you accidently push left instead of right and you die.
