Description: Pixel Ripped is back with a brand new nostalgia-fueled virtual reality game-within-a-game, this time in the year 1995! To restore balance to multiple dimensions, our videogame hero Dot recruits the help of the best gamer from 1995, an unassuming 9-year-old boy named David. Join this unlikely duo through challenging throwbacks to all your favourite classics from the late 16-bit and early 32-bit era of games inside a virtual reality world.
Review: ‘Pixel Ripped 1995’ is of course the follow-on from ‘Pixel Ripped 1989‘ which was a pretty great game anyway. The games you get to play are of course more 16-bit with some side-scrollers and platformers to be enjoyed. With 6 levels to be enjoyed which are all pretty long and that of course also means 6 little games to play the environment in which you play them is great and the storyline is sure to make most people smile at least once or twice. Sure, it doesn’t bring much new over the original (other than a new time-frame) but it didn’t need to. For £14.99 you get a well-made game that should last most people more than long enough to justify its own asking price.
