Pixel Soldier is a fast-paced game about fighting frantic bosses, while quickly dodging their attacks. Disregard gravity while walking on walls and jumping from one side of the room to another. With a minimalist yet dynamic 4-color aesthetic that doesn’t distract from the pure arcade action gameplay. Do you have what it takes to beat all stages?
Pixel Soldier started as an entry for the GBJAM 5 in October 2016, which required to make a game inspired by the GameBoy, with a limited screen resolution and using only 4 colors. It placed 12th out of 398 games in the category Overall Gameplay.
It has been in development ever since, and Early Access updates can be played for free on Itch.io.
