I am Level

Hi Nitromians,

it's Monday so time for a new Pixel Love which marks the first since we launched the new Pixel Love site last Friday. I am level is a great little game with visuals inspired by the Spectrum era. The game play however is something much more modern with a tilt/pinball based mechanic mixed into a platform adventure. We had a lot of fun with this one and I'm sure you all will too!

pixellovegames.com is now live!

As you all know, we really love pixel art.

About 2 years ago, we decided to highlight the best pixel games from around the web made by other people every Monday. This formed the basis of what is now known as "Pixel Love".

We noticed some things that we wanted to change when we initially created Pixel Love.

Things we noticed and wanted to improve:

  • No list of games to choose from. You needed to use the search box/wiki
  • We could only support flash games which ruled out a lot of awesome pixel content made in other formats
  • After the games initial feature, it would be buried under blog posts and other content getting hidden from view.

We have now addressed these issues.

We are pleased to pre…

Hey Nitromians,

Phew... it’s Friday morning again and it’s been another very hot and busy week over at Nitrome Towers.

Firstly we thought we’d give you a quick update on Bump Battle Royale. In short it’s coming next week. We had lots of last minute tweaks to make and Touchy to integrate so there isn’t much more to do.

Although you can’t play Bump Battle quite yet, we have a nice surprise for you all later on today involving Pixelove. Come back later to find out what it is. ;)

Play Music for Decay!

Hi Nitromians!

Wow, there has been an influx of awesome in the pixel-sphere this week! With the Ghost Wheel Jam providing a great bundle of games for you all to play! From this bundle, we have picked Music for Decay by Folmer Kelly as our Pixel Love choice!

The premise is simple, you play as an orb avoiding spike blocks and nasty elements for as long as you can on this endless treadmill. The longer you last, the more points you gain. We really like the "window of invincibility" that you get when pressing the up arrow. Don't worry, it doesn't provide the player with an insta-win mechanic, it spices up the gameplay considerably.

The mechanic needs to be deployed at strategic moments whilst evading the onslaught of trap tiles. The window of safety that is provided to the player is brief enough to engage the players reaction speed and hazard perception.

Have fun everyone! We'll bring you another Pixel Love next week!

Web Hosting Tests!

Hi Everyone!

We are currently in talks with another cdn provider. After some local testing, it looks likely that they may well be faster than the provider that we're currently using, which is great news for all of you! (you'll get to access our games and site content faster than before).

With this proposed site improvement, we'll certainly need to test it live and that is exactly what we are doing this week!

We'll possibly be testing until next Monday. So, with this week being our testing period, if you notice any problems, like slowing down of the site, error messages etc, please get in touch with us and let us know what went wrong! ( bugs@nitrome.com ).

If you DO get in touch, please let us know of your rough location in the world (USA, UK etc). Providing us with a State / County / Province might be handy for us when we actually go in to diagnosing the issues too.

This shouldn't affect us in bringing you new content, like the upcoming Pixel Love etc.

Well, wish us luck! :D

Hey Nitromian’s,

Check out our latest Vine video of the Final Ninja arena on our upcoming game Bump Battle Royale!

As the game is nearing completion we thought it might be a good idea to fill you in on some more info about it.

This is a Single or Multiplayer game (1-4 players) on either Keyboard or Touchy!

What makes this game work with multiplayer so well is that you can control your character with the use of a single button.

So how does it work? You character spins on the spot until your acceleration key is held which propels the character forward. Let go of the key and you’ll skid to a halt and spin all over again. Now this may sound simple, but with power boosts, arena traps and an onslaught of players after your …

Mobile Page Update

Hi Nitromians!

Just a quick post to let you all know that we've just re-vamped our Mobile Page to better display our products available and coming soon for mobile devices.

The page will now better accommodate any future mobile game releases that we launch as the page is now scrollable.

Besides this quick page update, we've been working on other site improvements, so expect to see some cool new features and updates in the future!

Happy Gaming Everyone!

Play Glitch Lab!

Today's Pixel Love choice is Glitch Lab by Nazywam

Glitch Lab asks the player to complete the game by exploiting the various bugs which can be found throughout the levels. This mechanic forms the core base for the game's puzzle elements.

We found it really satisfying to pass levels using nothing but the game "bugs". Figuring out how to complete a level and finding out what each level was asking from us as the player was a very interesting interaction.

We hope you enjoy this Pixel Love game as much as we did.

We'll bring you another Pixel Love game next week!

Happy Friday =D

Hey Nitromian’s.

Phew... it’s been another busy week at Nitrome Towers. With lots of new and exciting game development happening.

Late last week we showed you all a quick glimpse at our upcoming multi/single player game Bump Battle Royale. It’s quite far into development now, so we can fill you in with some more details on the game next week. We don’t want to spoil too much about the game though, so just another small glimpse ;)

Until then have a great weekend and we will see you on Monday for another Pixelove.

Happy gaming =)

Hi Nitromians,

We've removed the video ads slot from our rotating animations section on the home page. This took place a while ago but we completely forgot to mention it. I think we just had so many things all going on at once.

We think that this is a big improvement in usability and decided to let you all know about the change in-case you hadn't noticed. We are also happy to say that, so far, we haven't felt the need to turn the video ads in the animations back on!

Enjoy, have a great day!

Hey Nitromians,

We have just had a really cool piece of fan art made for our upcoming game Bump Battle Royale. It was sent to use by Saugandh Nakkarike over on Facebook.

I think you'll all agree that it's not only great, but perhaps even cooler because the game isn't even out yet. A big thanks and congrats to Saugandh for sending this in.

If anyone has got any other fan art they would like to show off then please send them to us via homing pigeon email, Facebook or post. We would love to see them and will feature the best on our site.

Play Denudation!

Hi Nitromians!

Today's Pixel Love Choice is Denudation made by Zillix!

You may remember Zillix from a previous Pixel Love choice, Exposure.

This game is very intuitive in it's play style/controls and (although short) is a very satisfying game to play. As with Exposure, we really enjoyed the minimal approach in the art style, it really manages to denote everything you need to know with it's limited palette. It also has some great music and sound design.

Click to play Denudation!

Have fun! We'll bring you another Pixel Love game next week!
