    Great great retro game, lots of customization. Make no misstake, the gameplay is unforgiving. you really have to be smart to survive past the streets. Give it a try, its worth the good price

    So I got this game because of the super low price tag and the fact that I love retro indie games. That being said I was very surprised at how much I've enjoyed the game. There are 3 game types, 2 are basically a story mode from different perspectives and one is a last stand mode where you see how long you can last while fighting endless waves of zombies. The game randomly generates things like weapon placement and what stores have for sale so you can play the campaigns multiple times and still have an enjoyable experience. The campaigns are not super long but they are enjoyable non the less and the game is very re playable. It has local coop for 2 people and the only reason I ding a point is that this would have been amazing with online coop. I would have gladly spent a few extra bucks to be able to play this without having someone at my house. Even without that though this is a bargain at the price and if you're looking for a several hours worth of fun and you enjoy these retro type games you will love this one. Expand

    I am a sucker for retro pixel games, and this is a good one.

    Excellent game, highly addictive game play. Challenging, fair and fun. Lots of content for a very low price.

    What can i say. It is a winner.

    Got this for 1€ on XBLA. This game is really great I had a blast playing it all the way through. There's is a nice Weapon trading system that reminds me of Resident Evil 4. You can also play it with a Friend in local co-op mode. I reccomend it. And I'm hoping that Dead Pixels 2 will be at least as good as this.

    For only 1.99, it's a trip back in time worth taking. [March 2013, p.95]

    Modest hack'n'slash with undead hordes hides a longer and better playtime then you would expect. [Jan 2013]
