The Indie Game Magazine Mobile: 'Search for… is a new series which champions mobile hidden gems you may not be aware of. Regardless of platform, age, or popularity, if a mobile game is worth digging for we’ll feature it here.
As a younger gamer, Life of Pixel feels like a history lesson in game form. It is a quick platforming tour of 8-bit hardware, allowing people like myself to finally immerse themselves in the simplistic worlds that make our gaming elders all misty-eyed in reminiscence. Each batch of levels in Life of Pixel is designed in the style of classic gaming system — from the monochromatic visuals of the ZX81 to Nintendo’s all-conquering NES — and to see the graphics altering and evolving as the hardware progresses is a really compelling hook.'
