Today we are finally getting our first look at Pixel Ripped 1995 the latest game from Developer Ana Ribeiro and Arvore. This latest release is the follow up the their successful first game Pixel Ripped 1989. I have to say it has been awesome watching this game franchise grow up over the years. I remember fondly the first time I saw the framework for Pixel Ripped 89 and that was from an old demo that was available on the now dead Oculus share site back in the developer kit days. Long gone are the days of Pixel Rift but it is truly amazing to see what that little demo has now grown into!
I have to say that I am loving this game so far… The combination of the 2D graphics and 3D environments is amazingly well done and coupled with the great animations and soundtrack complete with decent music and voice acting and I feel this game is a complete home run! Now with that said I will knock off a few points for the soundtrack getting somewhat repetitive. The background dialog tends to loop after a while and while it is very entertaining and sometimes downright LOL funny it can get annoying when you are stuck on a gameplay sequence and the mother keeps saying the same things over and over again.
Unlike its predecessor Pixel Ripped 1995 has different environments and gameplay styles mixed throughout the games 6 levels. Overall it took me around 4-5 hours to play through the entire game but I was taking my time to look at all the awesome Game Hero cards laying around with some of my favorite content creators on them and maybe if you look hard enough you might even find me in there too! -)
