Today we have chosen a very interesting pixel love game called Next Please created by Vyacheslav Stepanov.
We thought that the core game mechanic was very clever in this puzzle platformer.
You are playing as both the hero and the environment. Turn your character into solid platforms to reach out to higher places and destroy them again when they get in your way.
There is a lot of fun to be had in this little gem!

Hey loyal Nitrome fans,
It’s been another extremely cold and hectic week here at Nitrome Towers. For those of you who like to be kept informed of the latest gossip, we thought you might like to hear the progress of our Flightless Greenlight campaign over on Steam.
It’s both 'good' news and 'bad' really. The good being that it’s FINALLY smashed through the top 100 leader board barrier, currently being placed at spot 89 in the charts. The bad news is that we were at place 85 and have continued to drop further down :(
It’s a harsh place out in the Greenlight marketplace. So this means we need your help now more than ever. If you want to see our game Flightless be made into a full game, then you can help by clicking on the big vote button over on the Steam Greenlight Page via this link: Click Here
Also if you could all possibly share this message with all of your friends on Facebook it would really help the campaign.
Have a great weekend and enjoy our latest winter game Icebeak.=)

Now that we are in the Christmas period we felt that it was time to release the first of our two winter games.
Ice Beak is the latest in our icon game series. It's a puzzle shooting game which oddly, for a winter game, features just as much hot as it does cold!
Use our snow firing hero to figure out temperature and weight based puzzles!
What are you waiting for? Go and play now!
We were recently interviewed by Mochi Media's Colin Cupp about our ventures into the Mobile gaming space in the article titled Flash Meets Mobile with Nitrome Touchy.
We give pretty detailed insights into our Touchy app, flash games and what you can expect in the future from Nitrome!

Well hello again Nitromian’s and welcome back to another addition of Mondays Pixelove. Today’s nostalgic pixel feast goes by the name of Enough Plumbers a somewhat eerily familiar plumber platformer by Glen Forrester and Arthur Lee.
Hang on a minute...Isn’t that??? I hear you cry as you glance at the screen shots.
Well both yes and no... Although this may seem like a simple clone of everybody’s favourite fat plumber platformer at first glance. Appearances can be deceiving; there is a neat little twist!
...Every time you pick up a coin a brand new plumber is thrown into the mix. The upside to this is that you now control a small army of Mario’s and now have multiple hits at your disposal. Unfortunately the downside to all that is that all of the plumbers move in unison to the same key commands. And with plenty of challenges scattered throughout the game controlling all of them at once can be both a challenging and dangerous feat indeed.
Be prepared to be both amused and enraged at this cleverly crafted little timewaster.
Until next week Nitromeians Enjoy. =0)
Well Nitromians, it's that time of the week again.
We know it has been a little light in terms of news in our blog this week, although you will be happy to hear that we have all been very busy with current projects.
We'll try and bring you more Nitrome goodness next week, so until then, have a great weekend everyone! :)
Hey Nitromians it’s another busy Monday morning over at the Nitrome towers HQ. It’s a good job that our next showcase pixel love game is all about Multitasking then is it?
You take control of pixel robot, who’s task is to collect all the coins on stage whist avoiding anything red. However (and here is the cleaver bit) not only do you control the platform robot, but a big red laser at the same time....Wait, WHAT?!?
As you move the robot from left to right, your laser will move from top to bottom. Both of them are vulnerable to damage, and the robot even is killed by your lasers which makes for some interesting duel action puzzles.
For all you Multitasking experts out there, who feel like they can juggle more things at once. there is a ‘hard’ mode for you to try If you want to ramp up the difficulty even further.

Enjoy and we’ll see you next week for some more Pixel Love.
Swindler is back in a brand new drop and roll adventure Swindler 2!
Take control of our sneaky little green dangler in this rotating action puzzler.
Bouncing back onto your screens, fresh from the hugely successful early 2012 title Swindler. This brand new game is the first Nitrome Touchy enabled title from launch. So if you want the full immersive experience, get Touchy and get rolling!
Whilst we’re on the subject, for you android users out there, the wait is over! Touchy is now available to download on the Google Play Store. Just in time for Thanks Giving! Phew….! :0)
If you don’t have a smartphone, don’t worry you can still enjoy Swindler 2 using your keyboard just like all the other Nitrome games. The world of Nitrome just got that little bit better! We hope you enjoy Swindler 2, we really enjoyed making it!

Now we know there are a few games like this out there but One Button Bob deserves recognition due to it’s slick execution.
Easy to pick up and play, each challenge is different enough to keep you interested. With the difficulty level set to “fun” rather than “rock hard and frustrating!” we wanted to shine our weekly light of love on Tom “Ninjadoodle” Vencel’s pixelated adventure.
Oh and we love the Commodore 64 reference at the start… extra kudos for that!
It looks good, sounds good and plays well. So go on give it ten minutes of your time and enjoy :0)
It’s another Friday evening here in the UK, and that means it’s time to update you all on what is happening at Nitrome HQ.
Firstly our Icebreaker iOS title is coming along well and is looking great and even more importantly playing brilliantly. It’s now over 90% complete so the finish line is within sight. At the moment we are thinking about starting to film the big reveal trailer which will show you all just how awesome and varied our first iOS title is.
In game there are still a handful of levels to create for the second pack, some story to be written, a few more sound FX and some more graphics polish to be added.
Next week you should have another update on Icebreaker and fingers crossed a brand new Flash game release for our site.
For those of you who haven’t yet, you are missing out on some truly awesome Nitrome gaming and can try it out for ‘free’ from the iOS store now (Android version coming soon-so hold tight!).

Enjoy your weekend. Happy gaming =0)
Today we have launched a teaser video for our soon to be released addition to the Nitrome game catalogue. Swindler 2 is the sequel to one of this year’s greatest hits.
This new game introduces mechanics that turn our little green dangler on it’s head… literally! This is our first brand new game that will launch with Touchy as a controller option. This is by far the best way to enjoy this rolling action puzzler.
We’ll keep you updated on all things Swindler related but for now check out the video to see what it’s all about!

Winter has officially arrived and it’s another gloomy looking Monday over the Nitrome HQ in London. Lucky for all you gamers out there we have found another awesome Pixel Love for you all to try which we are sure will brighten up your day.
You play as a plucky astro explorer who is on a mission to find his lost feline companion after crash landing on an alien planet.
Players will most likely recognize the “familiar” handheld game console that the game is successfully mimicking. The green tinged retro styled art looks super stylish and manages to bring back memories of the good old days of classic handheld gaming. And the music is a true masterpiece in its own right composed by Rich Vreeland (which you can buy in-game if you are a fan of great retro beats like we are).
So if you are a fan of retro platformers, puzzles, pixels, cats (or just the colour green) then you're in for a gaming treat.
We hope you enjoy Cat Astro Phi and we’ll see you next week for some more Nitrome Pixel Love. ;0)
