Insane and Zen Update!

Hey Nitromians,

WAHOO! We have just released a brand new update to our super popular Magic Touch!

This update brings you two brand new modes INSANE and ZEN! Both bringing separate spellbinding challenges. 

Insane mode is exactly what it says on the tin. SUPER HARD and LOTS of fun. With some brand new shapes to master, the speed cranked up to 11 and purple knights and the king are more EVIL than ever. Perfect for short bursts of play and people who like a challenge and to brag about there impressively low high scores.

Zen mode is built for those who just want to play the game without any of the added distractions. Gone are the purple knights and collectable spells slots that take way to much brainpower. Start off at a reasona…


Hey Nitromians,

I have had a MEGA list of things to catch up on since returning from my holiday, meaning Mondays Pixelove slightly later than usual, apologies.

This week’s Pixelove shunts us WAAAY back to 2006, ah those were the good old days of Browser gaming.

Acid Factory by Miniclip. There has been a huge chemical leak at the factory and its up to our hero Harry to clean it up. Unfortunately for him there is a whole bunch of traps, mutants and well... ACID to deal with in the process!

Fun fact! the artwork for this game was commissioned by Miniclip from the ever so talented artist Gary J Lucken (aka Army of Trolls). Back in the day I really used to stare at his art and drool. Anyway, let me know what you think of Acid Factory in the comments below.

Happy Gaming Everyone!

P.S Next week’s Pixelove shouldn’t be late as I've already picked on out. ;)

Beneath the Lighthouse

Hi Nitromians, 

so as a final post for the week I thought I would share a bit of promo art we created recently for the game. The game itself is getting close to complete now so we should be ready to submit to the stores pretty soon. We will have more news to share about the game between submitting and release.

Have a great weekend everyone! Right now back to the game!

Super Late Pixel Love!

With Jon on holiday and a busy week finishing off things for Beneath the Lighthouse I totally forgot it was my responcibility to make sure we had a Pixel Love game launched! Doh! Ohe well better late than never!

Today/Mondays pixel love is/was supposed to be 'Tap Heros'. TBH I have no idea what it is about as Jon picked it before he left for holiday. I'm sure it's very good though so do click the link and give it a play!

It is by a studio called Varagtp so props to them if you like it!

Vault! Now on the web!

Hi Nitromians,

as promised last week when we launched Green Ninja we have launched Vault! on the website too so were now up to date with the mobile releases. From here on out were going to try and make them happen a similar time.

As a word of warning the game will not work in Chrome sadly as a they switched off Unity support earlier in the year. We would recommend using Firefox to play our games at the moment.

WebGL should eventually fix this issue but it seems to be a future fix at the moment sadly.

Next week we'll have another pixel love for you and should be able to give you more info on upcoming games. Some of them are getting quite close to completion now!


you can play vault here

Have a great weekend everyone!

Puppy Racing

Todays Pixel Love pick is Puppy Racing and there is an interesting Nitrome related link to this game. The game is more than a bit old and back when it was made Nitrome was still relatively new so we often did some bits of work on the side of the games we did at Nitrome. One of those bits of work was for this game. Mat and Jon worked on the rotations for some of the racers in the game. To be clear we did not design the game...that was someone else...just a little sprite work. Still it's an interesting fact that we thougth you might like to know :)

The game itself is a Mario Kart clone that uses the Mode 7 type effect that so many games addopted at one point in flash before full 3d became possible at realistic speeds. It's no Mar…


Hi Nitromians,

we realise it has been a frustrating wait for this but Green Ninja: Year of the Frog is now live on the website. This is just the Unity build so if your using Chrome which turned off Unity a few months back your going to have to swap browser I'm afraid. We would suggest Firefox.

We are hoping to put Vault live next week and then launch Beneath the Lighthouse as close to the mobile release as we can manage...ideally the same day. We then hope to stick with this on releases going forward.

We hate to over promise as things usually go wrong but this is our intent at this moment in time.

For those interested we are still intending to persue WebGL versions of all the Unity games. We have been trying to do this for a…


Upcoming: Rust Bucket

Hi Nitromians,

we have a brand new game in the works called Rust Bucket...Yay! But first some bad news...

The game we were working on called Plod is no more…Booo! What happened? Some projects just don’t turn out as fun as you expect them to be and that was the case with plod. It was fun to move around but though we kept trying we could not make very many things that were fun as a challenge to move past.

The upside of this is that we started a new project which is a refresh of our old icon game Turnament! It’s a game that we really wanted to go back to and flesh out much as we did with Gunbrick. The Plod game even helped us in making this as it was at the same viewpoint with the same depth sorting  issues so a lot of that engi…


Hey nitromians, 

Today's Pixelove game is called A Stroll in Space

by Big Dino games.

In it you play as a cute lil astro dude/dudette who is rudely awoken by a HUGE space squid... sounds like our type of game already!

You explore the space station avoiding its many hazards and space nasties until you unlock 'the monkey' (yes that's right, I said monkey!). After which you will have use of the awe defying red button which does some rather neat things to gravity. 

This game has lots of lovely touches (especially the mid-ground and foreground animations). It fits in with the types of browser games we love to look at and play. So much so infact that you might even be mistaken at first glance that its one of our very own.

What do you guys think of A Stroll in Space?

Happy gaming.

Ultimate Briefcase

Hi Nitromians,

we have been making and publishing it’s own titles on the App Stores now with increasing success and we have now decided to branch out and develop a publishing program!

The first title under Nitromes publishing wing will be 'Ultimate Briefcase'. It is being developed by a very talented developer named Stefan Åhlin and his new studio ‘Quite Fresh’. Stefan actually worked at Nitrome in the past on many of our hit web games before leaving to pursue other things. We remained in contact since then and were thrilled to see us be able to team up again!

In 'Ultimate Briefcase' your tasked with surviving an onslaught of bombs with nothing to protect you but your trusty briefcase. There are many bomb types and power ups …


Hey nitromians,

Todays pixelove is Birdy fruit by the talented pixelpushing team Fliptic.

It's a relatively simple concept in which you must flap your avian friends wings to guide him to safety. The catch is that you only have control of the altitude but not the direction making the game a whole lot trickier. oh yeah and theres a whole buch of traps, enemies and fruit in there too!

If anybody's got a cool game recommendation for a future Pixelove feature then please shout it out in the comments below. (preferably a Flash based pixelart based game)

Happy gaming ;)

Hey Nitromians,

Beneath the lighthouse has lots of cool features that work with the touch and rotate mechanic icluding the rather cool SPONGES!. As you can see the sponges react to the players touch making them inflate when your finger or mouse is pressed down.

We'll be filling you in with some of the other cool features soon so keep your eyes and ears peeled (not literally, that'd be gross!)

Check back for lots more gaming news next week.

Hey Nitromians,

It's Friday again after another busy week at Nitrome towers,

What nicer way to round off the week with another cool little teaser of our next game Beneath the Lighthouse!

As you can see it's a little reminiscent of our old classic Roly Poly and Ditto combined. This time though we have really went to town on the game and taken the game to brand new heights.

We really are super pleased with how this one is turning out, so expect lots of news on some of the cool new mechanics and traps soon.

Until then happy gaming and have a great weekend.

p.s Remember to check back soon as we have plenty of gaming news coming your way. =)

Great news, Nitrome is part of Amazons new gaming service Amazon Underground - "what's that?" I hear you say!

Well in a nutshell it's a brand new gaming service that lets players download games (many of them pay for titles or Freemium with nasty pestering In App purchases) for FREE! with absolutely no catches whatsoever. 

We got on board with the launch of this service and at this very moment you can get Gunbrick and 8Bit Doves at zero cost. All you need is an Android phone and the Amazon Underground App! 

There is more info via the link provided where you can download the Underground App via your Android devices or FireHD and Fire HDX Tablets. 

Happy Gaming =)
