DNF: McPixel


The DNF tag is where I dump all games that I stopped playing for whatever reason. Sometimes, I come back to them. Sometimes, I don't.

McPixel is an action puzzle game. You have twenty seconds to stop a bomb from blowing up in various situations. This game was part of the weekly Humble Bundle that included Botanicula, Thomas Was Alone, Amnesia : The Dark Descent, and The Showdown Effect. There was an option to download and play this game on Android devices, so given what I already knew about the game, I thought this would be great to play on my phone when I was short on time.

As much as I tried to like this, I just couldn't. I was so annoyed with it after about 10 levels that I wanted to throw my phone phone somewhere and forget that I'd ever heard of a McPixel. What did I hate? I don't know. It wasn't the graphics since I'm not a graphics snob, and it definitely had nothing to do with how crude it is. I'm just not sure what's to blame for this lack of interest in this game. I was just annoyed with it.

This will probably also go on my DNR list as well. DNR stands for "Do Not Resuscitate." It's where some of my unfinished games go to die.


This blog is a mishmash of thoughts, pictures, and rantings among other things about games I've played, games I will play, and games I am currently playing. From time to time, I may post book reviews that I've written that are about different games and/or game worlds. Feel free to recommend games or add me on the platforms I've listed. I don't do competitive multiplayer much anymore, but I'm always down for some co-op these days. I'm usually DigitalTempest everywhere unless otherwise specified.
