P1XL Party – Retro Minigames! is a group of mini games released by P1XL.

This application is a collection of three mini games: Splatform, Wanderers and Marz. It also promises more to come with Bounced to follow shortly and slots for at least nine titles.

These three games are basically Commodore 64 remakes. I personally owned a C64, but do not recall any of these titles on their original release. 

  • Splatform – A tilt controlled platform jumping game – 60%
  • Wanderers – Enjoyable swipe/tap controlled rescue / rpg game, explore and find the seven missing princesses – 78%
  • Marz – Fun little bomber style game, tap the screen to drop the bombs on the city so you can land – 72%

All the game play well, but I preferred changing the control on Wanderer to swipe as they seemed to work a little better.

The graphics and sound are very retro in style, and feel like the Commodore 64.

On the upside:

  • Fun Retro action
  • Multi Pack

On the downside:

  • Wanderers controls could do with a little tweaking
  • Not a universal app (yet)

Overall, this is good title, it only has the three mini games at the moment, but with more promised this could become a great title for £0.59. At the moment, it is Wanderers that really sells the application for me and Marz is also enjoyable for casual play. I am looking forward to see what other titles are added.
