Pixel Force: DJ Hero is an 8-bit remake of the popular console game. How could the game function in 1989? Developer Eric Ruth answers with this fun bleeping NES-style game.
Chip tune mashups
With nine chip tune mashups, Pixel Force: DJ Hero has enough music to keep you occupied for a while. The 8-bit sounds are surprisingly good, and the mechanics of the game, where you have to tap in time with the approaching symbols works really well. It's not quite as cool as using the official peripheral, but your keyboard will still do the job!
Graphically, Pixel Force: DJ Hero is what you would expect: colorful and blocky. The atmosphere is totally retro, and impressive that the game is actually more fun than many of the original Nintendo titles of the late 80s!
Fun but lightweight
As a high score chasing game, Pixel Force: DJ Hero is pretty compelling, although the bleepy chip tunes mean you won't be likely to invite friends round and hook your PC up to some big speakers!
