Default Life of Pixel by Super Icon Ltd

I've been speaking to the dev over at Super Icon as i've been dying to get an iOS version of this game. They're now working on it, ipad version first then iphone. Its a platformer with screens/areas based on various retro machines, the graphic style looks great

I'm a huge platform fan and i love the way this gives a nod back to the old retro consoles. I'm surprised how good the attention to detail is for the various machines. Eg ZX81, SNES, C64 and others. The full list is "ZX81, ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC, BBC Model B, Nintendo GameBoy, NES, Sega Master System, Apple II"

Looking forward to this !

Ha ha i'm the same ! The PC version has just come out so i'll give that a try but i must admit i cant wait for the iOS version.

I watched the trailer a few times and just love the way the other systems look, specially the very very basic ZX81 screens (Yes i am old enough to remember that). Should be great

Ya it's such a great idea for a game. I have not owned some of those consoles but I have played on them at a friends back in the day. I had the Atari, nes, sms. Super nes.
