"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.

    The gameplay is ok, although you should just have the upgrades from the start, its not fun without them. The art is nice at first but becomes simply bland. The boss fights are bullish*t and not even fun.

    Tough, interesting story, fun to explore. One of the best side scrollers on Android.
