    Dumb idea combined with retro outfitting is sure to meet it's goal. McPixel is a weird cross-over of WarioWare and point'n'click adventure. The game is so bizarre that you are bound to have some laughs. [Aug 2012]

    It's not a big or clever game, but there's value in the small and stupid too, and there's something truly wonderful about it being Steam Greenlight's first release. [Jan 2013, p.69]

    It forces you to switch off the cause and effect mode in your brain and try most insane solutions. Fun! [CD-Action 02/2013, p.65]

    As an indie title, it aims for a tiny audience, but even that audience its too large for the quality it offers. If you feel attracted by the concept and/or visuals go ahead –you'll love it or hate it– but don't expect a game everybody can enjoy. McPixel wants to cause a reaction, and it causes it.

    McPixel is like raw high fructose corn syrup for your brain. Some people will enjoy the sugar rush, but most people will be overpowered and nauseated by it. Levels in this game are 20 seconds long and completed by exhaustive point-and-click search. Full Review »

    I've enjoyed this game alot. Its darn funny! All these references and humor and great music make it a "must have" game. Main campaign is kinda short (about 2 hours) but i hope DLCs will fix that. Full Review »

    After playing through the story mode, I still don't quite understand what I just experienced. Nothing makes sense, and nothing is funny. In fact, there is no fun to be had at all while playing this game. It feels like something that was meant only for a very specific group. Full Review »
