Overview:

Introducing Arkedo Series - 03 PIXEL!, a joint labor of love by Pastagames and Arkedo. Mummy gave the beauty and the blue backgrounds, Daddy gave the wits and the smooth controls. The result is an easy-to-pick 2D platformer where you can zoom into some pixels to do nice things.

Features:

• One adorable blue digital kitten,

• Many adorable yet deadly foes,

• 7 Worlds to explore. With checkpoints.

• Amazing dot-matrix visuals, only made possible by current-gen HD consoles.

Price and availability

All Arkedo Series cost 240 MS points, so approx. the asking price for a nice Latte. They can be found on the XBL Indie. Huge difference with the Latte. (XBL Indie Channel is a section of the XBOX 360 Marketplace.)

About the Arkedo Series:

The Series are a little experiment Arkedo always wanted to make: is it possible to release a game a month on the Indie section of the XBL Marketplace? The idea is to make simple games, a lot of them, and hopefully have many people enjoying them. As already stated, the games will be priced 240 MS points, even the good ones.
