This game looks interesting; I enjoy the retro game style. Is there any kind of over-arching meta game to the whole thing? (I'm always seeking a game similar to one of my all-time favorites; Retro Game Challenge for the DS, which has a bit of a story/magazines/unlockables, etc.)

Also, how many games can be beaten? I'm not a big fan of score chasing/endless style games, so I'm curious how many of the included games have a win condition.

Thanks!

The only meta game (and it's a stretch) is getting all the achievements in each game - the main menu adds silver and gold stars to each game's icon as you complete the achievements, so there's a bit of a "collect all the gold stars" goal.

Wanderers (the mini action-RPG) can be beaten. Splatform (the platformer) also ends after you've finished all 9 levels. Bounced (the paddle/ball game) triggers an achievement after you've completed all the unique levels (23 of them I believe) but play does continue afterwards with slightly remixed variations. Marz and Bat Bite are truly endless. So, 2 or 3 out of 5 have an end, depending on how you count.

P1XL Party will be getting a much-needed update soon. The app is fully Universal now, and we pulled the last remnants of OpenFeint out, replacing it with Game Center.

And there's a new little game, called "SG13" - race your muscle car through 40 side-scrolling miles of alien robot apocalypse, to deliver the SG13 nanobots to the scientists that can save the world.

We sent the beta to our testers today, and should submit it to the App Store this week.

Also, if you're a fan of Splatform from P1XL Party, look our for our new app, Super Splatform, launching this Wednesday!

We submitted the big P1XL Party update tonight - now all four of our games have full Universal / iPhone 5 support. Also included is a new little alien robot apocalypse racing game called SG13.

Also, if you're a fan of P1XL Party's Splatform, we released a greatly expanded new version of it called Super Splatform (see my signature for the link).

The relaunch of P1XL Party is live! A new game, full Universal and iPhone 5 support, pulled OpenFeint completely out so it's 100% Game Center now.

And, we made a new trailer:

Yeah, previously the game was just iPhone 4, and we added both iPad and iPhone 5 support. It's sometimes tricky to do that with pixel games, but we found reasonable solutions for all 6 games included.

We've got a few unfinished games that should find their way into future updates:

-An Intellivision-styled ice hockey game.
-An original Game Boy-styled driving / exploration / combat game
-An 80s arcade-styled vertically scrolling racing game

Thanks for making this universal! It's great. My current favorite is SG13, it would be awesome if that got the Splatform treatment and be expanded into its own game
Really like the music in all the games. It shows the attention to detail that is not standard in retro games these days.

One wish I have is local high scores. I'm not ever going to get in the top 10 globally and it would be nice to see my own high score before I start a game and without having to go to Game Center (which is unworkably slow on my iPad 1, and also doesn't seem to update correctly for me because I only see a highscore for Bounced at the moment).

Thanks, glad you like it, and yeah, I'd love to see a bigger version of SG13 too.

Thanks, Sam does a great job on the music.

Great idea, I'll look into it.

Any chance of more games after the first 9?
