  • Very entertaining but buggy at the end Nov 16, 2018

    By Sunbeam_9999
    I loved Atari’s Adventure and this game remains very faithful to the original. There are 24 worlds with various monsters and you collect coins to “level up”. You can hold onto more than one item, increase your speed and improve your sword skills. The storyline is interesting. I’m not a fan of the “wraparound effect “ especially in unlit screens. And you cannot see objects in the dark unless they are in the candlelit area (a la’ “Haunted House “ Atari game). I’m now up to level 60 and my biggest complaint is that there’s always two monsters on the screen. I wouldn’t really mind that IF I COULD FIND THE SWORD!! I’m not afraid of the monsters, but if I paid all that money for level 8 (max) sword ability, then for goodness sake give me a sword. The perk for paying for level 8 sword ability should be that I should be always outfitted with a sword at the beginning of the level, otherwise I feel cheated. I don’t mind fending off and fighting five, six, seven monsters on a screen at a time (it does get crazy at level 60), with monsters moving at super speed and continually bumping into gravestones, rocks, etc, and the sword slipping this way and that after every fight, but please change the program so at the very high levels where we’re fending off hordes of monsters. At level 8, it’s uncomfortable to play the coward and run from fights. Valor forever!

    I loved every second of this game! It was easy to pickup and play, and I loved listening to the music and dialogue from my mom. Super interesting twist on a classic concept
  • Great remake Apr 4, 2018

    By CrypticWizard
    I have always wanted a good remake of the classic Adventure and thus game delivers. My only problem is the lack of instruction. I don’t understand how the combat system works and usually end up running away from the because I cannot seem to defeat them. Give us some more instruction and i would give it a better rating
  • Feels like a modern sequel to Adventure Dec 19, 2018

    I have an affection for the Atari 2600. This game pays homage to one of the best games of the system. It adds complexity, problem solving, and infinite replayability.

    It’s neat at first. Not really like Adventure aside from the look. No explanation about anything, but you get most things by dying a few times and learning how to do whatever, like sword fighting. Later levels are just you avoiding enemy after enemy after enemy with no sword.
  • Thank you for making this game Aug 12, 2020

    It’s very much worth the .99¢ price tag.

    For .99 cents is amazing but I have a complaint,maybe I’m and idiot or something but I can’t manage to get past the 9th level
  • I love it!!! Oct 4, 2018

    The game is a riff/homage of the classic Atari 2600 game ADVENTURE but it’s so much more!!! I love it!
  • A Wonderful Update to Adventure May 6, 2014

    By EggplantWiz
    I had a real blast playing through this game. I used to play Adventure for the Atari 2600 for hours upon hours on end, and this is the first tribute game I've seen since that gets the simple yet elegant nature of the structure. The random dungeons makes the game go on as long as you want to keep playing. Two minor quibbles... One no cloud save so playing on multiple devices messes up Game Center tracking and acheivements. Second, the antagonistic comments from the "adults" in the game seem mean-spirited and without real context. The story isn't really the reason to play this game. Since you'll spend most of your time wandering the mazes and avoiding/slaying beasties, it's not enough to deduct from the rating or reduce the amount of fun you'll have playing this gem! Thank you to the two devs that made this wonderful treat!

  • Classic remake done right Jan 28, 2015

    By foxglove_9
    A modern look at the Atari 2600 Adventure. They kept the sound effects and look from the original but changed up the gameplay a bit. It’s still all about finding the color keys to the castles to get to the Trophy and exit the level. It’s very maze oriented and like the original the rooms warp you around so it isn’t a straightforward maze. There is usually a map somewhere on each level to help you out (and yes you can take it with you because these levels are complex!). Many of the stages are in the dark. There are a few new enemies, and a storyline. If you enjoy adventure don’t even hesitate to pick this up. Yes it’s a pain to swipe to everywhere (please add controller support) but if you can overlook that this is a brilliant effort by a 2 person team. Excellent.
  • Atari 2600 -- the way you remember it Mar 23, 2014

    By abuelito
    Most folks who grew up playing with their Atari 2600 tend it remember the games through the fog of nostalgia. Many of us who make the mistake of playing them as adults realize how limited and, well, awful they really were, especially compared to the NES classics that followed in the next decade. With pixa, the Electronic Toy Company has pulled off a small miracle: they've created an homage to 2600 games that plays the way you remember them, not the way they actually were. It's a witty game, full of clever nods to first-generation consoles, even as it delivers a thoroughly contemporary experience -- one that is well suited to the iOS platform, to boot. Did I mention that it's a blast? :-).
  • If you have fond memories of the Atari 2600... Mar 16, 2014

    By Pendemonium
    Less than 10 minutes in, and I'm loving it! I grew up with Atari 2600, and so far this has captured the feeling of it perfectly. You have the rounded corners of the TV, the faint scanlines of the CRT, and a slight fuzz to everything when the colors are bright. It controls well, and the humor is snarky but I like it. I'm only two trophies in so I can't say how long the game will last, but there are 24 cases for trophies, and at this point there's no telling how difficult some of them are going to be to get. If you have any fond memories of the 2600, or the Atari Adventure game, I highly recommend you spend the $.99 to get this.
  • A beautiful love letter to retro gaming Aug 13, 2015

    By Lawrence73
    When I was a kid I played my Atari 2600 for countless hours. Simply put I had a blast with that machine and I still enjoy playing those old school Atari games today. Adventure was one of those Atari games I played a lot and I lamented the fact that it never received a proper follow up. Until now. Pixa is THE follow up to Adventure that fans like myself have been waiting for. Graphics and music are superb and the quests have that "complex simplicity" that good Atari games would deliver. While updates or follow ups to Pixa would be nice I'm glad that the game exists in the first place. Buy it!!
