Atari’s Hot Pixel Lands on PSP
Hot Pixel’s Furious Rapid-Fire Gameplay Expected to Set Thumbs Atwitter
Atari, Inc. today announced that Hot Pixel for the PSP has shipped to retailers across North America. Hot Pixel is a fast-paced and frenetic portable game that challenges players to think on their feet as they are presented with a barrage of 130 diabolical mini-games played in quick succession over just a few scant, exciting, sweat-inducing seconds. Hot Pixel is rated T for Teen and is available for a suggested retail price of $29.95.
Tailor-made for gamers on the go, Hot Pixel provides players with bite-sized chunks of gaming; each mini-game offering cool tasks and goals which take no more than a few seconds to figure out and complete. These goals range from navigating through an old-school Zaxxon play-alike, busting out tricks on a skateboard, to crowd surfing at a pixilated concert. Each game is infused with a style that is inspired by early 80s Atari arcade classics, and modern-day street culture. Hot Pixel features 130 mini-games available throughout the game, in addition to a bundle of 70 all-new mini-games available to download for free on the official Hot Pixel website: http://www.hotpxl.com/.
“Hot Pixel is a hybrid of old-school retro and street smart cool, combining colorful and stylistic graphics with an electro-pop and hip-hop soundtrack,” said Donny Clay, Producer, Atari, Inc. “Players can even remix custom Smart Playlists full of their favorite mini-games. Hot Pixel is right at home on a system that boasts an impeccable style and a rich multimedia experience.”
Due to the pick-up-and-play nature of the gameplay, Hot Pixel can be enjoyed by gamers of all types. Hot Pixel also offers a variety of game modes for casual and hardcore players alike; with the Story Mode, players can unlock new game options and variations of the mini-games that encourage social play, while the wireless multiplayer mode allows gamers to vie against each other in heated head-to-head matches.
