    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.

    This game is exactly what it tells you it is. Watch the video before you buy.
    I picked it up for 1 dollar on Steam and am really glad I did.

    I picked it up for 1 dollar on Steam and am really glad I did. Though the game may not leave me with my sides splitting, it is packed with the most random and unpredictable humor ever. Trial and error point and click game. Just click on different combinations of people and objects until you finally figure out what saves they day.
    It is a humorous take on the old MacGuyver television series; the guy who will do things like use a toothpick, safety pin and stick of bubble gum to blow the 20,000 pound vault doors off an exitway.
    Due to the 5 dollar base price tag the game is slightly overpriced compared with content and playtime, so I hack a couple points off for that.

The once cool 8 bit music starts killing brain cells in a massacre of common sense and reason. You soon find yourself mindlessly clicking each individual pixel hoping one of them is right to get past the level. The only thing that will keep you sane is the onslaught of references and jokes.

    Only buy this if it's in a sale or if you have a brain and want to try this yourself to conclude your own opinion, I'm just some idiot on the internet.

Each level is a small scene with a few items to click on, you have to find the right item or combination of items to make sure the bomb doesn't explode. At first I thought this may be fun, but unfortunately it is not. Due to the horrible 'retro' graphics (aka graphics made by a lazy dev who lacks the skill to create good looking graphics and now pretends it is some kind of 'art') that would have been considered bad even on a C64 often you can't even see what exactly it is you click on. And even if you do, it doesn't matter. Because the levels are totally random and in almost all cases it's simply trial and error. You click on a trash can and a small goblin appears with a bomb on his head...*bam*, try again. Yeah...right. There is of course some humor in the game because of this silly randomness, but it's always the same idiocy and gets boring quick. Would have been ok for a quick laugh if it was a free Internet flash game, but I can't imagine how anyone would want to spend money for this, no matter how cheap the game is. Expand

I had to sit back an extra meter from my monitor to attempt to make out what in gods name was going on, it is was too f**king pixelated. Even after doing so I had absolutely no idea what the f**k was happening. There are no instructions. Nothing makes sense and a McPixel logo pops up every time after finishing a 3 second long level. When I say level I don't really mean level as what you do is click on an object, then click another object and some cr*p explodes. This game should die. Expand
