In this non-shooting shoot 'em up, you are a single white pixel who can collect other pixels to create a powerful ship. You absorb the bodies, abilities, and weapons of every enemy you collect, so it's up to you to stay either small and nimble, or turn large and powerful. Protect your core white pixel, because every mistake could be your last. Each difficulty has new enemies, weapons, and BOSSES! Change your strategies and push your limits in each mode. See how you match up against friends and other players in the online leaderboard.

Pixel Galaxy Critic Reviews

The fantastic pulsating soundtrack kept me hooked for a little while, but eventually Pixel Galaxy repetition sets in. The lack of meaningful content holds the game back, which is a shame because the idea itself creates a foundation for something more. I still had fun forming ships out of enemies and the boss fights in particular provided a welcome challenge, but that only remains fun for so long. At least I see myself going back to the soundtrack on occasion.

This game isn't for everybody, and even fans of the genre won't find a hell of a lot of depth to the game.

Pixel Galaxy is a clever little non-shooter where your only ability is to move and convert enemies into helpers, and as simple as the endless squares that make up its art are, they look great in motion.  There are a lot of creative weapons and bullet patterns to dodge through, and constant tug-of-war with the enemy swarms is a lot of fun until it becomes a constant beatdown.

Pixel Galaxy is a fun game with dynamic gameplay and a solid design. It's almost impossible for colorblind players though.
