They Bleed Pixels Review -- Digitally Downloaded

There is a certain “sweet spot” when it comes to difficulty in video games. If the game developer can make the player fail a-dozen-or-two times before succeeding, the game ultimately delivers a grand sense of accomplishment without severely punishing the player for attempting the challenge in the first place. Lots of old video games were very close to this sweet spot, but succumbed to unrefined mechanics that subtly wasted the players time. And with more modern games becoming multiplayer-focused, or easier in order to compliment more cinematic campaign modes, there have been very few games that hit the difficulty sweet spot. Thankfully, They Bleed Pixels is one of the few games that aims for that sweet spot and successfully nails it. (PC, They Bleed Pixels) 4/5
