These were simpler times when all a kid needed was a CRT television and video games to get lost in. Pixel Ripped 1995 is about a boy named David. All he wants to do is play an action-adventure game known as Pixel Ripped.
Now, dive into the universe of Pixel Ripped, a fantasy adventure game. In this game, the evil Cyblin Lord threatens to take over the world. You are Dot, the hero tasked with defeating Cyblin Lord before it is too late.
Well the games are designed well, you can learn how to play the game without a lengthy tutorial or text overlays. In some of the best games out there, like Super Mario, you learn as you go along through trial and error. Pixel Ripped 1995 is no exception. The game had maybe two lines of explanatory dialogue at the very beginning; the rest you were left to learn on your own. Interestingly, the gameplay mechanics change in every level. However, the game design is so good that you can learn all the gameplay mechanics on your own.
The unique thing about VR is that you aren’t just playing games, you are experiencing a new medium of entertainment altogether. Pixel Ripped 1995 shows the true creative power of the virtual reality medium and I can’t say enough good things about it. I’ve reviewed over 20 games on the Oculus Quest and this is by far the best, most complete, and most unique game in the Quest’s library. The art style is nostalgic and inventive and the gameplay mechanics are unlike any other game before. The game is short and sweet and will leave you wanting more. If you’re a retro gamer that has been on the fence about buying a VR headset, trust me, this game alone is worth the purchase.
