Pixel 8 is out now!


We’ve been excited about this one for quite some time, and now Pixel 8 is now available in the Apple AppStore.

It’s here and it looks a bit like this!


“Pixel 8 is an easy-to-play but hard-to-master test of your artistic observation and digital dexterity! Can you beat the clock as you re-create our pixelated masterpieces in record time and unlock all the Galleries?”

Pixel 8 is a free-with-ads game. Any IAP purchase will also remove ads,  which we felt seemed like a decent approach to it.

The three galleries available now are;

The Main Gallery - 250 images to play through

The first person to tweet a score higher than ours in each of the difficulties will win one of these swanky posters, signed by Power-Up artist and original creator Mike Hanson.
