"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 and 8 levels (more are included in the full version).

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.

    I haven't been able to fine a game as fun as this in a long time! I would buy the full version but all I can do now is give the rating it deserves! Great job!

    Tried based on high score, after 4 levels seems like just a boring low "collect the things" budget platformer with a placeholder plot. Do not see appeal.
