…and the official page had this to say;
Originally inspired by the retro wonder days of 8-bit games, and now expanded to include the 16-bit era, Life of Pixel 2 is a traditional 2D platformer with plenty of modern gameplay elements.
Pixel 2 features a massive variety of pixel art, over 150 retro-inspired levels of platforming goodness. Chock-full of moving & destructible platforms, double jumps, gravity inversion, traps and lots of different enemies. Not forgetting the audio – Pixel 2 features an epic original chiptune soundtrack created using the original sound chips for each machine.
And Secrets! Dozens of special secrets to uncover and experience. From silly little touches through to great big mega-epic secrets!
Also of note is the fact that this will be a full version PSVita game, not a PSMobile or Mini title – it will include trophy support. You guys asked for it and it looks like they’re delivering.
There’s even more but it’s too much to list here, head to the source for your fix!
