Picture almost perfect

A splendid slice of silliness ; Like a childhood book in game form ; QTEs and minigames mix things up

Some unfairly obscure puzzles ; Quite short ; Will be too weird for some

Like many point and clickers its solutions range from the forehead-slappingly obvious to the unfairly obscure (such as coaxing a young bird into the mouth of a giant tortoise to use its head as a ladder). What is impressive, however, is its use of QTEs...

Axel & Pixel Review for the XBOX360

 

Crazy as a bat.

Well-inspired, crazy-looking levels; Occasionally funny moments; Combines various game genres

that are too convoluted and involve too much pixel-hunting; ...but more often fails at it; Awkward platforming and racing controls; It's over in a whim

Axel & Pixel is the story of an artist named Axel and his dog Pixel who live in a cozy little cottage in the mountains. In the intro, we see Axel fall asleep in his comfy chair. In his dream an evil rat traps them in this bizarre dream world and they...

I would definitely download the trial first before you buy this game!

Rising above its questionable parentage.

Beautiful backgrounds, charming vibe, easy on the brain without pandering

Vehicle sections seem out of place, short length

Axel and Pixel isn't breaking any new ground with its adventure puzzles but it does offer a fanciful and (mostly) low pressure gaming experience filled with plenty of delightful touches. Start to finish it takes about as long as a good afternoon nap,...

Axel is having a tragically awful dream. First his painting is interupted, then a large rat steals his keys and it's all capped by a large chunk of ice crash landing directly on the top of his house. Boy is Axel going to be angry when he wakes up. But...

With its unique art style and creative puzzles, there's a lot to like about Axel & Pixel. Unfortunately it's marred by a short run time and puzzles that can be easily solved without using any tips. Fans of graphic adventures will have a good time...

Axel & Pixel is an unusual point-and-click adventure that happens to be one of the more unique and charming titles on the Xbox Live Arcade. It's a rare but short experience that I would recommend to gamers looking to try out something different, even...

A fine but short-lived adventure that will capture the imaginations of anyone with an open mind and the will to give it a try.

Weird settings and a lack of actual gameplay make Axel & Pixel's first adventure an unfulfilling experience.

Likeable lead characters ; Surreal settings offer lots of surprises and weird backgrounds to gawk at

Puzzles are simple pixel hunts ; Levels are too surreal to allow any use of logic to figure out puzzles ; Button-pushing challenges aren't properly integrated into the game ; Boring minigames
