Retro PC RPG Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic Journeys Onto Android
After launching on Steam to popular acclaim Headup Games’ quirky retro style RPG Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic has arrived on Android in all its campy majesty. This ambitious ode to MS-DOS era roguelikes is fraught with perma-death, a staggering amount of procedurally generated content, and a charming sense of humor that toys with players expectations by subverting the nature of typical NPC archetypes. While Pixel Heroes is a grand retro inspired role playing game that legitimately does its forebears justice it also doesn’t forget when not to take itself too seriously.
In this charming new roguelike it’s up to players to form a diverse party of badasses as they travel around the land laying the hurt down on a mysterious cult that has taken hold of the citizenry. With an impressive 30 different heroes to choose from and a randomized engine ensuring that no two playthroughs are the same, Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic offers a ton of replay value to go along with all its sardonic wit.
Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic is a great new retro RPG with a heart of pixelated gold. You can pick it up now for $6.99 on Google Play.
