Hot Pixel





Hot Pixel 


Hot Pixel is one of the strangest games I have ever played. This Playstation Portable (PSP) video game is a huge mini game compilation. Players need to quickly learn how to play the mini games. Most of them are pretty simple and easy. The other thing of note is all of the descriptors from the ESRB. I have to admit I thought Hot Pixel would be an instant failure. Thankfully I spent a lot of time with this game, and realized it is not as bad as the sounds. With that said, it is not upper echelon either. Young adults may find some value in spending their time with Hot Pixel.

Hot Pixel has an eclectic visual style that is changing all the time. There are real world images used in some areas, and some very old look block graphics used in others. There is some blood, and gore in Hot Pixel, and I honestly can see no reason for any of it. On top of that there is some enticement to lust issues. Some of the rewards are peeking through a window at women. I found those things disappointing personally.

Players are encouraged to vandalize in some mini games, as well as some off color humor. Hot Pixel tries very hard to be funny, and sadly it falls flat on its face. I wish Atari had kept the humor family friendly, but they shot for the ‘T’ rating. The main character in Hot Pixel is goofy beyond belief. The language issues are also present, and detract from what could have been a great game. The enticement to lust is also in the audio department.

Hot Pixel has a lot of replay value if you can survive all of the moral and ethical issues. There are multiple episodes, and unlockable content in this PSP game. If that were not enough Atari included multiple difficulty settings. Those settings are mainly less mistakes, and more levels. I found Hot Pixel for under ten dollars, but have to admit it is not worth the money.

Hot Pixel really shakes up the controls and keeps the player on their toes. I had a lot of fun playing the various mini games. There is an Ad Hoc mode so two players can enjoy this hand held video game at the same time. I would advise you to obey the ESRB rating at a minimum. Usually they miss content, but they hit the mark with Hot Pixel.

Hot Pixel shows women to be sexual objects for men to drool over. This game also teaches fast reaction to changing environments. If Atari cleans up the moral and ethical issues I would love to see a sequel. This style of game is really good. Hot Pixel is not safe for the entire family.
