It’s a spooky world filled with bright lurking nasties. Armed with your ‘photon blast’ cannon it’s your job to destroy all enemies on stage.
Sounds simple doesn’t it...?
The main problem being that each monster can only be defeated by a certain colour of blast, assigned by reflecting blasts off of various surfaces.
The configuration of monsters and elements get more complicated as the stages progress leading the player to quite literally explore the game from every angle. With frequent new elements, climactic boss battles and a charming ending, it’s well worth the play through.
We loved the bright and chunky pixel style char…READ MORE

We have a brand new update about our awesome upcoming Ice Breaker iOS title!
In our first update leading up to the games big release we would like to explain what we meant by the term side quests, which we mentioned in the features list.
We have also taken the opportunity to spruce up the page a little bit. It has now got tabs for different sections. You can now also sign up to the Nitrome mailing list by clicking on the sign up tab and keep up to date with the latest information about the game.
We'll be adding more updates and design changes as the game progresses.

We have an interesting Pixel Love today for you to test your skills at in the name of Fracuum created by Tyler Glaiel in just 48 hours.
Can you guide your square bodied pixel hero to the centre of the known universe?
We were really impressed with the clever concept behind this one. The use of an almost infinite zoom feature to discover unexplored rooms was something am certain none of you will have played before.
Have fun playing this minimal pixel explorer and try not to squint to hard.

We’re sorry we didn't bring you the Ice Breaker iOS update this week. The game has been progressing at a good pace and we did have a plan for what we wanted to tell you about. Unfortunately our talented web developer Tom has been taking a well earned week off and as such it is a little hard for us to update the Ice Breaker page.
To give you a taste... we’re planning to add a series of updates to the Ice Breaker page between now and the games release. They will serve to highlight some of the interesting aspects of the game that you may not know about as well as show you all that we are actually still working away at the game and making good progress.
The first update is going to be about what we actually meant by 'Side Quests' which are not normal for a Physics puzzle game! We will do this by taking you through an example featuring the lovely looking goat in this week's Friday image!
So look forward to that and more next week, have a great Weekend!
This week's Pixel Love game is 'Escape From Puppy Death Factory'
brought to you by Aurthur Lee and the fine people over at Adult Swim.
You assume the role of an intergalactic canine avenger. Your mission, to save the kidnapped puppies from a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
It is not hard to see the amount of love injected into this clever Metroid style puzzler. We loved everything down from the the charming pixel graphics and Catchy puppy retro beats to the Head scratching teleporting puzzles.
Give it a try we think you will all agree.
Well, it's that time again!
We know it has been a little quiet in the blog this week, but feel free to join us next week as we'll be updating you with more on our forthcoming iPhone title Ice Breaker!
If you have any questions related to the upcoming game, you can post comments on the following page: Ice Breaker iOS
So stay tuned and have a great weekend!

This week's Pixel Love game is Gamma Bros!
This game was created by the Pixeljam team
We absolutely adore this gem of a game!
The artwork really is awesome. The scores of enemy that you have to defeat makes this a very challenging game, but it is simple to control with W,A,S,D and arrow keys.
