[Review] Get nostalgic with Pixel Ripped 1995

Keyword trending analysis

This topic in a nutshell - what you need to know

Pixel Ripped 1995 takes everything that made its predecessor, Pixel Ripped 1989, and cranks the nostalgia up to 11 without missing a beat. Instead of putting you in the shoes of game characters you don’t know and trying and fabricate a sense of familiarity while being inside the game, Pixel Ripped has you reminisce about what it was like to be the kid in front of the screen that’s playing the game. But can that same recipe work again whilst offering a fresh experience? Just like the video games the title is paying homage to, Pixel Ripped 1995 can be a frantic arcade experience, albeit a somewhat watered-down version. This can become a little repetitive if you’re not careful yet this is also where Pixel Ripped 1995’s charm lays.
