App description: An ordinary guy forced to defend the world from an alien invasion of infectious zombies. A point-and-click adventure with beautiful pixel art and bombastic retro sound.

"It looks great, it controls wonderfully, and it's got a cheeky sense of humor" - Pocket Gamer: 8/10

Featured in App Store section "New Games We Love".

The Gameplay

Gameplay is similar to old games like Maniac Mansion, Zac McKraken, Beneath A Steel Sky and Monkey Island, but the game has a unique interface that is optimized for touch. Unlike most other point-and-click adventures the player actually holds the current item in his hand.


The Graphics

All handcrafted pixel art.


The Music

All game music only uses original Commodore C64 SID chip sounds, but polyphonic and with professional effects. The main theme of the Paul Pixel game was composed by the Pixel Lover Orchestra and is called "They Want To Get Us". Other chiptune highlights are "The Awakening" by the underground duo Retro Arcade Boys and "The Giant Meteor" by 8-Bit Factory.


The Story

An average guy called Paul Pixel discovers that the part of the city where he lives was put in quarantine. Apparently there has been a zombie outbreak. He needs to get out...

Of course, a short time later he needs to save the whole earth from this zombie apocalypse.

Playtime: 2.5 - 3 hours

Supported Languages

English, German

*** Does not work on old iPod Touch 5th Generation ***

Grabbed this even though I'm not the biggest fan of the pixel art. Story seems fun so far. Some aspects are annoying me a little like his walking speed and that if I tap on something and change my mind, I can't stop him from walking there. There are achievements for finishing each area, and I'm on the beach right now. So I think I'm a little under halfway through? Just based on the achievements, though. So I could be wrong.
