"Mad about pixels"

Reviewed by / Nov 12, 2012

Pixel Twist is highly original puzzle game

Pixels are trend, didn't you know it? Smartphones are re-raising both 80's gameplay and graphics. However, although this game is about pixels, it isn't what you expect.

Pixel Twist is an original puzzle game in which you have to rotate a handful of shuffled pixels until recreating the image in the upper right corner. In other words, that pixels do form a specific shape if you look at it from the right angle. Thus, the goal is to rotate the playing field with your finger until finding the right position. As it couldn't be otherwise: time matters. The more shapes you produce before the time runs out, the higher you'll score.

The one that I described above is the "main game" mode. You can also play "ten on time", the goal is to recreate 10 images in 90 seconds. As if it wasn't challenging enough, each image done is unlocked on a "gallery" which is like a Hall of Fame. Try to unlock all of them to beat the game.

The game is set in a well-crafted, clear and smoothly interface. Actually, more than expected for a puzzle game. Screentouch response is accurate and twist are physics-natural.

Highly recommendable.

    It's a great game to test your eye for 3d pixelation, but after a while it gets prrdictible because of almost every picture having a black outlining. The game is all a matter of color grouping and twisting the image within the lines. Overall it's a good game

    This is a fun browser game that made a great transition to mobile. Coign of Vantage is great and soothing, and Pixel Twist is as well.

    It would be a sweet game if the solution wasn't immediately given away... Hopefully an update will include an option to turn that off.
