It’s another gloomy looking Monday over here in London UK, so we thought we would try and brighten things up a bit with today’s Pixelove ‘Llama in your face’ a zany defence game from Big Dino developed by Simon Parzer and Peter Sperl.
This game is every bit as crazy as it’s title sound’s; you take control of a Llama who must drive away the hordes of visitors before they reach his cage. Your only defence is to spit at them and send them away in a slime filled rage.
It’s a game that is built on a simple premise of point, aim and click but it builds upon this over its 18 rounds to become something which is both engrossing and bags of fun.
Quickly collect money with your mouse and upgrade your defences such as multi-target, spi…READ MORE

Well, it's Friday, and what a week it has been!
You'll notice that we lived up to our promise of bringing you everything we said we'd bring this week.
We've brought you a pixel love game, an update that introduces you to the Ice Breaker Characters, an update for touchy telling you about more games and, if that wasn't enough, we have also brought you our Flightless Demo!
We think you'll agree that we have been very busy this week!
Don't forget to vote for us over at Steam Greenlight for Flightless!
Thanks, have a great weekend!
There are now over 150,000 Nitromians on our Facebook page, thank you all so much for your support!

Thanks, and keep being awesome everyone!
We have just updated our Flightless page with some cool new surround artwork!
Thanks for your support!
There has been a little gap in updates as we wanted to announce what we have been up to with our Touchy and Greenlight projects but that does not mean we have not been beavering away on Icebreaker at the same time….nobody sleeps here don’t you know!
This update covers a little about the characters in the game. Because our web games have a short turnaround time we rarely get to explore the characters in the game world so we made sure to make the most of it this time.
We explore the characters mainly through in game conversations they have. It is quite like how we did it in our Rubble Trouble games but we have made more tools to explore this further than we did in those games.

It's the start of another brand new week here at Nitrome HQ and it just wouldn't be the same without some more Pixeloving.
This week we would like to highlight the game ‘Magnet Kid’ a hard as nails puzzle platformer by ‘Strange studios’.
It’s your task to guide your magnet marching robot to the end of each stage. The trick here is that you can switch your characters polarity and use this to avoid the many dangers in your path. Why not use your powers to stick and hitch a ride on a moving platform? or use it as a shield to protect from enemy fire and lazers?...The list goes on for some really interesting (and uhmmm very difficult) magnet mechanics.
Magnet kid is both pretty to look at and easy on the ears, and earns a well p…READ MORE
Ok so hopefully we managed to surprise you with this!
Flightless will be, with your help, our first full PC download game available through Steam!
The game is an epic puzzle metrovania platform game for one or two players drop in drop out co-op split screen! You play as ducks that have had their wings clipped for stealing and to pay it back you must search for gems to pay back your debt in a huge dungeon full of monsters and traps.
With clipped wings flying and even jumping are not possible but luckily you have a magic ladder to help you out. Press the action key and it will cast a ladder upwards or downwards until it hits something.
Use this to climb round the levels, take out enemies, trigger switches, weigh down pressure …READ MORE
Hi Nitromians it’s Friday again and wasn’t it a great week!!
WHAAA... what do you mean we posted next to nothing all week? Ok we admit it we didn’t give you much of anything this week and were sorry about that. The truth is we have been so busy with exciting stuff this week that we just didn’t have time to tell you about it ... but next week... next week we will reveal all (well lots anyway).
Next week we WILL have lots more Touchy info, we will have more Icebreaker info and we will let you in on a top secret project we have been working on that should get you all pretty excited!
Have a great weekend and we will see you all next week!
Hello Nitromians, once again it’s time for us to give out some Pixel Love.
The run, jump, shoot control method will feel very familiar, and this isn’t a bad thing. With such an enjoyable formula you’ll be snowballing through the levels in no time. However there is more to this game than meets the eye. Popping in and out of houses and getting loads of enemies with the shoot-freeze-kick mechanic is very satisfying. Combine this with the ground pound and end level bosses, makes this a great little platformer.
With lovingly created characters and parallax scrolling l…READ MORE
Today we thought we would show you another cool piece of fanart that we have received. We think that this is some really eye-catching Ice Breaker fanart!

We forgot to get another Ice Breaker update ready for you all to check out, sorry about that! We'll try to bring you more on Ice Breaker for iphone as soon as we can!
Have a great weekend everyone and we'll see you next week!
Wow… we’re super busy here at Nitrome towers! Lots going on at the moment… we thought now would be a good time to give you more details on the Nitrome Touchy app. You may have read the teaser blog we posted previously, well today is another red letter day in the development of this brand new venture.
We have launched a new section to our website dedicated to Nitrome Touchy. This gives you more information about this up and coming release. So if you fancy it, check it out.
As always we will be releasing more information regarding the development and games over the coming days. There is an FAQ section on the home page but if you have any questions please feel free to ask away in the comments section and we will answer them as quickly as we can.
Have a good day y’all!
The aim of the game is to climb the company’s office floor by floor, slowly working your way up through the ranks until you reach the top of the corporate ladder.
This has been a huge office favourite for some time now, as there is just so much to like about it. From the clever pixelated office environments to the humorous and dark depiction of a huge corporate company. If you haven’t tried this game then it’s well worth the 20 mins or so it will take you to reach the end.
For those of you who are faint of heart there are several instances of pixelated deaths (…
