by Rainier on April 27, 2006 @ 1:21 p.m. PDT

HOT PXL is a collection of micro-games themed around street culture and the digital lifestyle. The rapid fire game play requires players to draw on their old-school arcade prowess to get through hundreds of inspired scenarios ? whether it’s blasting through an old-school, Zaxxon-inspired game, busting tricks on a massive skateboarding half pipe, stage-diving at a pixellated concert or simply trying to cross the street. By playing through the regular game (Story Mode), players unlock new options and alternate versions of the micro-games that encourage social play. HOT PXL will take full advantage of the PSP system's unique capabilities, including the ability to download new content through a PC interface, ensuring hardcore and newbie gamers alike receive the most colourful and original gaming experience around.

In Hot PXL the player is charged with guiding the central character, a half-skater, half-nerd named Djon, through a typical day in his pixellated digital world. The world of Hot PXL features fast paced and varied micro-games ranging from the eccentrically outrageous, through to the subtle and cool, dipping into Atari’s rich video game history for inspiration along the way.

The rapid fire gameplay requires players to draw on their reflexes and 2D gaming prowess to get through hundreds of inspired scenarios – whether it’s blasting through an old-school style video game, busting tricks on a skateboard or a BMX, stage-diving at a pixellated concert, or just trying to cross a busy digital street.

Hot PXL will take full advantage of PSP’s unique capabilities, including the ability to download new content through an online interface, ensuring gamers receive the most evolutionary and fresh gaming experience on the scene.

Hot PXL is scheduled for release on PSP Christmas 2006.
