PIXEL! is the third, and final, game in the Arkedo project series. An undertaking in which the studio had attempted to develop and release on game per month.

As Pixel the cat, you have grand adventures when everyone else in the house is asleep. Battling fruit, walking trees, and more as you traverse each level looking for the exit. This game is a beautiful game, which is primarily presented in shades of blue and white.

One interesting addition to the normal platforming gameplay, is that of the puzzle element. At various points in the stages, you are tasked with searching out a hint in the level. Once these hints are located, you have to make your way through a maze mini-game to advance further. These puzzles are presented in a super-zoomed in view, which adds a nice mix of color to the otherwise monochrome pallet.

Arkedo Series - 03 PIXEL! is more expensive than some other indie titles at 240 MSP, but the excellent visuals make up for the premium price.

If you have an Xbox Live Indie Game that you feel should be featured in an edition of the Indie Games Spotlight, please PM your suggestions to mancide.

When not enjoying video games, our fearless newshound enjoys an nice pint of fermented barley and hops in a variety of styles. India Pale Ales, Stouts, Porters, Witbiers, Saisons, Gose, Lambics, Barleywine, you name it. If it has water, malted barley, hops and yeast in it, I'll consume it. I also enjoy all things technological, Doctor Who, wrasslin, traveling, and spending time with my family.
