    Pax Pix does a good job at making the DS technology important to gameplay, but in the end it still falls short of being a fully satisfying game. The repetitive formula feels more like a mini game that should be spaced out as an exercise within a full game, or else put in a mini game collection. The play did not intrigue me enough to give me any real desire to keep going through the levels, and I can't imagine this game being a more than a quick time waster for players.
    This is the kind of title that should be bought from the "bargain bin" if you don't want to feel cheated.

    It's by no means, a perfect game, but if you can get it for 10 - 20 dollars, it's worth it. There are times when it can be a bit frustrating, when your drawings don't register and you're running out of time on the level, and some of the music really isn't that good. However, for an early DS game, the graphics look really good, and the game itself is rather cute. Overall, recommended if you want a good distraction. Also, the game is, well, kind of repetitive. It DOES throw new things at you to not make you bored, but it's simply not enough. Okay game, overall. Expand

    It's a beautiful, magical experience, but at the same time it's one of the shortest console games we've ever seen - if you don't love it enough to play it to destruction, chances are it'll be back in the shop in a week. [JPN Import]
  2. The sheer originality and inventiveness of Pac-Pix inevitably wins through, making this one of the most memorable games you'll ever play. [NGC Pocket]
  3. An excellent example of a new form of gameplay unique to the DS. It’s pure fun and puts a smile on the face of anybody playing it. [Import]
