    The game is visually a treat when it isn't distracting and its individually separated level segments differentiate it from other endless platformers.

    Infused with equal doses of collection and avoidance mechanics, the quick bursts of a variety of game types will keep you on your toes and your fingers at the ready.

    Pix'n Love Rush is the perfect example of how classic gaming can be paired with modern casual gaming, creating a challenging and addictive title that's almost endlessly appealing.

    A short, budget shot of old-school gaming. [Sept 2010, p.100]

    Consider 3 retrogaming lovers (Pix'n Love Editions, PastaGames developers, and Bulky Pix publishers), cook them in the same pot, and the resulting delicacy will be Pix'n Love Rush on the iPhone. A true homage to oldschool platformers, the game has simple and diabolically precise controls. Heavily reliant on a carefully crafted level-design, its 2 modes (collect the bonuses, dodge the maluses in the first one, and a crazy time attack) may drive some players mad before they get to improve their skills, but its fun lies there. A pure game of scoring - still one of the best past-times ever invented.

    A scoring system that completely alters the visual style of the game adds to the unique flavor of Pix'n Love Rush, and the fast gameplay makes it a perfect "pick-up-and-play" sort of game.

    It's repetitive, but that too is true to the game's old school inspiration. [Oct 2010, p.84]

    For a buck, this is a quality purchase. The five minute mode is intense, fast and hard, and players will come back to it time and time again. That said, their stay in the game won't last very long. It really is a five-minute run, maybe once or twice a day.

    The rapid-fire stage shifts, the straightforward but challenging gameplay, and the ease at which you can bounce in and out of Pix'n Love Rush all contribute to this stellar score.

    Pix'n Love Rush is a delight for ears and eyes, a truly sensory experience. Unfortunately, the two current game modes are short and sleazy, unable to hold the player's attention. We miss the lack of a true Story Mode and the game doesn't succeed in recreating the same alchemy between audiovisual experience and addictive gameplay that we have seen in titles like Geometry Wars.

    Part Mario, part Space Invaders, part every 2D game you can think of, Pix'n Love Rush's complex set-up will likely charm just as many players as it bamboozles.

    Pix'n Love Rush is a surprisingly epic, retro-styled gem.

    Regardless of what it looks like, Pix'n is deep enough to drain hours on the couch, but also casual enough to distract throughout an entire commute.

    Comes together beautifully to create a game that's perfectly suited for long or short play sessions, and beckons to be played over and over as you work towards high score glory.

    To be honest, with a full story mode and an extra quickplay mode or two, Pix'n Love would be well worthy of a premium price, and is the kind of game I love to show off to my friends. Right now, it's definitely a must-have for any device, and will leave an 8-bit smile on your face.

    Amazing exhilirating game. I have it such a long time but I continue to play it. Updates are frequent with new game mode and replay value is great. I love this game like Jetpcak Joyride and Crazy Escape. Full Review »
