Review Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic

Jay Feldman
Interesting plot, decent game play, simple controls
Very common, bad detalization, slow animation
Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic for Android is a classic RPG quest that aims for old school pixel territory. Search the kingdom, battle monsters and all that good stuff. The play is a little slow and plodding by design, yet is sure to be a big hit with retro gaming fans
Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic starts you off in a medieval village with various buildings to enter and explore. There's several people to speak with before beginning your quest, a few of whom can actually offer assistance and tell the tale that expounds upon the journey you are about to embark upon. From there, it's off to the wilds of this mythic land in search of heroic deeds to do and menacing beast to conquer. You will encounter many a pixel ghoul, a few monstrosities, and yes, some terrifying pixel big bosses. The play employs turn by turn mechanics, pitting your ragtag band of heroes against the enemy. The play is belabored at times, but modestly engaging.
The controls are just basic screen taps, with each hero displaying a set of possible weapons to use for each round; just tap your weapon of choice, then tap the beast you want to battle, and watch the hit points fly. The graphics are, naturally, heavily pixelated, looking like 8 bit territory. The visuals are actually pretty small, placing your heroes and the landscape they traverse on the top third of your screen, with the remainder displaying inventory and other feedback. The animation is rudimentary at best, while the sounds feature repetitive MIDI music that drones on and on and on.
Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic is very slow moving and crude, but if retro pixel games are your jam, this one is sure to please.
