The Christmas avatar for December 18th has now been fixed. Feel free to go and find it!
We will leave the xmas advent calendar on the avatars page for a little while longer so that you can see if you have unlocked it.
Today's Pixel Love game is Tightrope Theatre by Adventure Islands!
This game has a good amount of variety in the obstacles you face, ranging through barrels, cannons, fire and more.
We also really like how much can be conveyed in two frame animation and this game illustrates just that. The pixel art as we have come to expect from adventure islands looks great!
Have fun everyone, more Pixel Love next week!
We are thrilled to tell you all that Gunbrick has been featured by Apple and we have been selected as their "Editor's Choice!"

We are very pleased to announce that Gunbrick is OUT NOW!
We hope you all have fun rolling around the Gunbrick universe solving the huge amount of puzzles that we have on offer!
Happy Gaming Everyone!
Final blog post about Gunbrick before the big release tomorrow (we promise). We almost forgot that we haven’t even explained the controls to most of you and just how much of a good fit they are for a casually played but engaging mobile game.
It’s super simple really. Just swipe left or right to roll the gunbrick to either side. If you hold a swipe, it will continue to roll the way you started. Tap to shoot and hold your finger down to continuously fire. If you are facing sideways the recoil from your bullet will push you sideways. You’ll need this skill early on to traverse the landscape or dodge oncoming enemy fire . Fire against the ground to rocketjump and fly upwards. Useful to reach high ground and avoid lasers and mines.
It’s really as easy as that.
Check out the vine video for a super quick demo of the controls in action.
Until tomorrow, happy gaming. ;)
As Gunbrick is rolling out tomorrow for mobile, we wanted to give your ears a little treat with a snippet of the games music. There are 12(ish) tracks in total and we must say that in our humble opinion it is some of the best music we have ever had produced. It’s possibly even worth the price of the game just for the music alone!
Give it a listen here!
For those of you who don’t know, the music was produced by Eirik Suhrke producer of some of the most memorable tunes on mobile. Some of his works include Ridiculous Fishing, Spelunky and Super Crate Box. He also made a little tune for us in our latest game Platform Panic.
A neat little thing in Gunbrick is that the music starts after the protagonist has jumped into his brick and started the engine. It really makes it feel as though he has just switched the radio on and is thudding along to the music as he drives.
Keep your ears to the ground as Gunbrick heads your way tomorrow!
Our Rolling puzzle romper Gunbrick will be available to download on your devices at some point this Thursday (January 8th).
Get your pennies ready for nitrome’s next Premium game. Battle your way through the topsy turvy world of the Gunbrick. Featuring devious puzzles, nail biting boss-fights, multiple themes, crazed mutants, head bobbing chip tune music, Charismatic cut scenes, nerds, slick controls, frantic action and errm... bricks!
Today's Pixel Love choice is Pixel Quest!
This one is very addictive and boasts some very blocky chunky pixel designs that we thought looked stunning.
With all the news that we had to tell you all recently, we forgot to put up posts for the Pixel Love games!
If you have been playing on Pixel Love, you'd have noticed that we were still selecting and highlighting great pixel games over the Christmas holidays!
The games that you may have missed were:
We chose this one as we felt it was very fitting as an Christmas themed game. The game is wonderfully drawn and has some nice puzzle elements!
This one has some great isometric artwork and a lot of depth, we thought it would keep you all entertained for quite a while!
Have fun Nitromians, we'll bring you more Pixel Love next week!
Yep, we have another preview screenshot for you all to check out. This one has taken from an awesome title we are looking to release early in 2015!
This one is going to be another one of our mobile (and website) level based titles!
It's called Green Ninja: Year of the Frog! It's a puzzle game, and it is kick-ass! (literally)
What are your thoughts Nitromians? As always, we really appreciate feedback :)
We have been so hard at work here at Nitrome (even with the office move) that we literally have so much that we are excited about and want to show you!
Here is yet another teaser of an upcoming mobile game that you can also expect to play in the browser soon!
Any ideas as to what you have to do in this one? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
Welcome to 2015 Nitromians!
We are really excited about this one. Magic Touch is coming to mobile soon!
It's Magic Touch, but as you have never seen it before, completely revamped for mobile with loads of new backgrounds and new magic spells to unlock!
Everyone in the office that has played this game didn't want to put it down, so we can only imagine this is going to be just as fun for you Nitromians!
What do you think?
We hope you all have a great start to the year!
