Move, jump and shoot! Does it sound easy? Well, it is… at first. But then it gets much, much harder!

And for those willing to challenge their endurance, the game also features an infinite mode.

Packed with 125 levels popping up in varying sequences, PIX’N LOVE RUSH feels different every time you play. Its finely tuned level design offers a consistent progression of difficulty and will have you fervently come back to try and beat your score!

PIX’N LOVE RUSH revisits the history of vintage gaming systems through 7 refreshing visual styles offered as rewards as you score. If you were a gamer back in the 1980s, you will be in for a trip down memory lane! If not, you will get a sense of where the whole gaming culture comes from.

Initially released on iPhone, PIX’N LOVE RUSH received unanimous praise from reviewers, with a score of 91 on metacritic.com. Levi Buchanan of ign.com rated it 8.9/10, calling it a“retrogaming love letter”.  Andrew Nesvadba of appspy.com said it is“the perfect example of how classic gaming can be paired with modern casual gaming, creating a challenging and addictive title that's almost endlessly appealing.”

In the AppStore, the game was blessed with a large majority of 5-stars ratings and delighted comments such as“my hands hurt but I couldn’t stop playing!”

The release date and price of PIX’N LOVE RUSH on Playstation Minis will be announced shortly.
