    A classic arcade puzzler with gameplay compounded by a tremendous amount of scope for mastery and blistering retro aesthetics, Pix the Cat is one of the most essential pressure-puzzlers that you can buy on PlayStation right now.

    Pix the Cat looks looks like a familiar animal born of the arcade room, but this kitten is trickier to domesticate than expected, its wild gameplay being revealed through the neat modes cooked by Pastagames.

    Pix the Cat continues PastaGames’ reputation for making incredible bite-sized gaming experiences. There’s even a surprising amount of depth here thanks to its multiplier and variety of game modes.

    PIX THE CAT is a great little game that can be played in short sessions or it can keep you entertained for several hours.

    It's all a bit shallow for anything long-term. [Christmas 2014, p.78]

    This game is just amazing Its like playing snake and pac-man the arcade mode is really fun but there are other game modes such as nostalgiaThis game is just amazing Its like playing snake and pac-man the arcade mode is really fun but there are other game modes such as nostalgia where it looks like a 1940s cartoon and you have to figure out the puzzles and there's the laboratory where you have to solve puzzles with certain patterns. Overall the Game is awesome but I feel like the response time is a little bit late on the PS4 version. Also the game is free for PS plus members so if you're a PS plus member you have no excuse not to get this. Expand

    Все тут пишут одно и тоже, но так и есть. Змейка и Пэкмэн в одном флаконе, приятный дизайн, хороший саундтрек.

    Очень понравился локальный мультиплеер, динамичная заруба получается. Обычно жену заманить сложно за консоль, а тут прямо сама просится ))

    Pix the Cat is a good arcade game with varied modes (arcade, nostalgia, puzzle) that could be a GREAT game if the controls were more precise.Pix the Cat is a good arcade game with varied modes (arcade, nostalgia, puzzle) that could be a GREAT game if the controls were more precise.

    I learned early on that the thumbstick was not going to be reliable. The d-pad is better, but some turns feel off. It's like I have to start them a bit earlier than I should. This becomes a real issue when you're going very fast an need to execute a few swift turns in series.

    I also wish there was an option to pick up at the last board/level you completed (or even perfected), albeit with a score reset. There are a few boards that I can't seem to get the hang of and it really sucks to have to play through 15 levels just to practice one time.

    The daily mode is a fantastic feature that helps to keep the game fresh. It definitely works in coaxing me back on days when I would otherwise not play. The mission gallery is amazingly helpful. It keeps me motivated and helps me decide what to aim for next.

    I'm still not sure how I feel about the slight randomization. The level structure is always the same, but the eggs and drop points shift a little bit from one run to the next. I get what they were going for here, but at the same time I wish the stages were static so I don't feel shafted by unfavorable placement on an otherwise good run.

    Overall, I'm satisfied with this game. It's a good addition to the PS+ library and will continue to see a 2-4 hours of playtime from me for at least the next few weeks.

It is a lot of memorization and is hampered by controls that just don't work with a PS4 controller. The constant speed changes do not help. I just wish it was a little more constant and not too slow or too fast at times. Not a bad game for PS Plus, but it's a hard game to give a very high or low score to. Expand

    This is a very special kind of indie **** It's just like Inception, we have to go deeper; it's a **** within a **** within a **** genre. NowThis is a very special kind of indie **** It's just like Inception, we have to go deeper; it's a **** within a **** within a **** genre. Now tell me how many seconds we have to come out of purgatory before we die and my dead wife keeps telling me how she is going to screw all my plans. The rea question I pose is, was he still dreaming?

    Avoid. Buy Resogun if you want a good indie title.
