PixelJunk SideScroller Review

 

A neon retro sheen doesn't mask the flaws in this short and basic shooter.

Gorgeous neon art style ; Creative stage designs ; Impressive boss fights

Short length and limited replay ; Weapon button mapping is awkward ; Multiplayer co-op isn't well implemented

PixelJunk Sidescroller - PS3 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Q Games and its PixelJunk franchise has made a name for itself by taking existing genres and finding subtle ways to leave its own indelible mark. PixelJunk Sidescroller, their latest work, is sort of a departure for the series because it doesn't only...

A throwback game doesn't stir much nostalgia.

This is the type of game that nostalgists always characterize as a “love letter to the genre.” Putting aside the necessity of writing that letter in the first place—surely the NES era’s post-office box is full by now—it’s evident that Q-Games’ passions...

I want to be clear on a few points from the beginning. First, just so everybody can relax, I played through the game on Normal. Second, I am absolutely sure there are people out there that will love this game.

Awesome music ; Vibrant colors make for interesting visuals

Cheap level design ; Frustrating boss fights

PixelJunk Sidescroller Playtest: Retro Futuristic Shooting

 

Pixeljunk Sidescroller opens on a prompt to “insert coin” on a display designed to replicate arcade cabinets of old, complete with a bowed screen and scan lines.

3. Given that the game is so arcade inspired, it’s kind of a shame that there’s no way to reconfigure the controls to make it more playable on an arcade stick. The fire button is R1 and the weapon switches are square and circle, which makes arcade...

Review: PixelJunk SideScroller is a Sublime "Shooter" From Another Time

 

The latest PixelJunk game breaks up the 360's monopoly on arcade shmups.

Being a fan of the PixelJunk Shooter games, I found it an odd but mostly pleasant surprise that developer Q-Games was branching out with PixelJunk SideScroller -- it's definitely not the free-moving planetary spelunking game that Shooter is, but...

This arcade shooter nails the arcade experience perhaps too well.

Based on an unlockable mini-game in PixelJunk Shooter 2, PixelJunk SideScroller is unfortunately not much more than a mini-game itself. While a perfectly competent arcade shooter, it nails the arcade experience perhaps too well. This short, elementary...

The PixelJunk series has become a staple of the Playstation network. From the tower defense game PixelJunk Monsters to the abstract puzzler PixelJunk Eden, the series has consistently tried to change formulas. In 2009, Q Games released PixelJunk...
