Gotta love when Indie devs are porting their titles to Windows Phones. Alawishus Pixel is a platform/puzzler where you need to push a block to open the door. Of course, the levels have challenges from bats, ogres, moving platforms, etc that challenge your dexterity. It’s a retro style game and the classics are often the best. The reviews of the Xbox title are seemingly all extremely positive. And it should take a good chunk out of your life as it has 40 levels. As an added bonus, it’s a free/ad supported title but if you pay the $.99 the ads go away. otherwise, it’s the same exact game, just with/without ads depending on if you pay. let’s get on to some footage from the XBLIG version:
Here’s the official description for WP7:
In the tradition of 8-bit NES and SEGA classics comes Alawishus Pixel for your Windows Phone! Note: Downloading the trial gives you the full game but displays ads. The ads will be removed if the game is purchased.
A port of the Xbox Live Indie Game favorite of which ExtraGuy.com says, "absolute proof that a dollar price is in no way a barometer for a game’s quality" and also featured on the popular Independent Charles Show. Now take Alawishus on the go as you move through the 40, old-school-tough levels of this single-screen platformer.
While wandering the high mountains in the west, Alawishus spots an opening to a cave to which he obviously decides to explore. To his surprise, the cave collapses behind him and suddenly, he finds himself trapped. The object then, is to push a block from the beginning of the cave to a switch on the other side of the cave, which will open the exit to the next level. Sounds easy right? Well you’ll have plenty of monsters, slugs and guns to stand in your way not to mention lava, moving platforms and switched platforms.
Along the way you’ll find signs written by another lost traveler left with the hope that you will be the one to save him. In exchange, the signs will offer tips and encouragement so you can reach the ultimate goal of rescuing him and escaping the caves.
Again, the trial contains the game in it’s entirety but shows ads. Purchasing the game will remove the ads. Thank you very much for supporting indie development!
