A Pixel Story is a devious, old-school, 2D puzzle-platformer that charts the evolution of video games from the very beginning. You embark on an epic quest to the core of The System aided by the mystical powers unlocked by your Magical Teleportation Hat. As you progress through the four graphical generations your world becomes increasingly detailed and complicated, and your journey through video game history becomes ever more perilous.

You must explore a colourful and diverse world, unlock the awesome power of your snappy Magical Teleportation Hat, traverse 6 large free-form zones, interact with a diverse range of NPCs, stop the evil OS and, of course, save the world.

"A Pixel Story is a hugely fulfilling experience. Its perfectly pitched difficulty ensures that it's challenging but never frustratingly so, and above all, it has that elusive 'just one more go' quality that will keep you hooked."
8 / 10 - GameSpew

"I loved the graphical changes as I went through each zone. The gameplay may be a little simple for some and the puzzles may not be challenging for every gamer. It's a great indie game for any gamer who enjoys platforming, puzzles, and a walk through game development history."
B - GameOctane

"A Pixel Story is a fun stroll through a computer that can be quite challenging at times. The story is engaging and the different characters that you meet along the way are both interesting and original (even if they were inspired by past games)."
