    McPixel - Sos - 48 Hour Competition Entry

    McPixel is a minimalistic point'n'click adventure.

    There are 6 puzzles to solve, and you have 20 seconds to complete each. If you fail, instead of retrying, you are taken to nearest unsolved puzzle, unless it's the last one.

    Different actions trigger different gags, and one of these allows McPixel to save the day.

    Made using FlashPunk (highfive Draknek & ChevyRay & Rolpege)

    Amazing fun - nice that there are plenty of alternative endings.

    Hahah, hilarious game, and great pixel art! The special ending was full of win. Well done!

    Top notch as usual. "Loved" the special ending.

    The first game to actually get a humor score from me.

    The amount of content in here is great!

    Some solutions took quite a while to find though.

    Ok, this is one of my favorites so far. I'm a sucker for point'n'click adventures.

    Really cool game, and 6 levels are enough as the multiple endings are awesome \o/ ! Nice pixel art, and nice music! I laughed a lot, and the final ending is... well... surprising ! :P

    Absolutely hilarious, I'd say some puzzles don't really make sense but I've played enough point and click games to know better. :D

    Wow. This is great. Too bad I can't rate games. This would get a full 10/5 for humor.

    You definitely put in a lot of effort :) One of very few games (including games outside of this competition) where I had to get 100% completion.

    Very nice!

    Great one :)

    I didn't figure out a couple of the puzzles, but started to understand after a few runs through. :) Excellent art, funny results (albiet sometimes unpredictable, but McPixel does what McPixel does...).

    Well done!

    100% completed and liked it! :) Good humor and big thumbs up for music.

    Special ending is super hot hot hot

    Took me a minute to figure some of it out, I guess I'm out of practice when it comes to adventure games! Funny game!

    Awesome.

    ratking says ...
    Aug 24, 2011 @ 9:23pm

    I can't stop giggling! Of course, this is the funniest entry I played so far.
    Main criticism of course is the theme (rescuing the situation is NOT escape :-P), but, who the fuck cares?

    8bitmuse says ...
    Aug 25, 2011 @ 8:19am

    haha excellent, graphics are great, audio matches them very well. I think it could have followed the theme more closely but beyond that it's real fun to play. Awesome!

    This game was amazingly good and fun! The puzzles were interesting and hilariously fast-paced! It definitely solves a problem that some people have with puzzles games... that they take too long. Having the scenes all end in explosions is hilarious and keeps things moving fast, along with the great music. 5 stars for sure!

    I only deducted one point for the loose interpretation of theme but otherwise an amazing piece of work. The secret ending is too fun to describe. Well worth the extra effort.

    The twenty second solve or die mechanic was great and well worth using again.

    Aug 25, 2011 @ 7:06pm

    You actually made a point and click adveture fun WTF! I loved it.

    Shadow says ...
    Aug 26, 2011 @ 12:46am

    Loved the audio, the humor and the graphics, although I think the link with the theme is kinda weak. I had lot of fun discovering the gags and special endings. A quite good entry indeed.

    This was great!

    The special ending was nice, but the unexpected gags themselves are more than enough reward. Truly a good feeling to "figure it out".

    It did take me a while to understand that choosing an action ends the scene, even if 20 seconds is not up. Once I caught on, it was extremely fun.

    Neilo says ...
    Aug 27, 2011 @ 11:11am

    Awesome AWESOME game! Gags were funny, loved the ending too! I like how it's not immediately obvious, forcing you to just be a bit random and try out things!

    EPIC

    Too bad I missed some scenes because I mouseclicked too much...

    Doft says ...
    Aug 27, 2011 @ 9:28pm

    One of the bests!

    Orz says ...
    Aug 28, 2011 @ 6:06pm

    A little bit like Myst where the only strategy is clicking every single pixel on the screen. But at least, unlike Myst, it's designed for short attention spans. I thought this was one of the funniest entries.

    Brilliant. Ha.

    johanp says ...
    Aug 30, 2011 @ 7:03pm

    While it is hilarious to watch, I don't understand much and can't really deduct what to do to succeed in each scene.

    Very silly. I liked it.

    krangGAMES says ...
    Sep 3, 2011 @ 2:01am

    Ahhh, WUT!
    That's quite the special ending. Entertaining, certainly nailed the WTF aspect. Nice one, good humor :)

    Short and easy to solve by just clicking around, but I definitely liked it a lot.
