A retro 2D Halo tribute

Pixel Force: Halo is a retro 'demake' of the iconic Xbox series, re-imagined as an 80s Nintendo Entertainment System game.

Same story, one less dimension

Following the story of the first game in the series, in Pixel Force: Halo you play Master Chief, the human soldier who has to prevent the alien Covenent from discovering the location of Earth. The bright colors of this 8-bit version actually look really good, and reminiscent of the 3D original. As well as the side scrolling platform-shooting element, there are top-down vehicle segments to break up the gameplay.

Yesterday's gameplay, today's difficulty

Pixel Force: Halo is a fun concept, and if you enjoy platform shooters like the classic Commando, you'll enjoy this. The main criticism of Pixel Force: Halo is that it's a little easy, although if you complete the game you unlock a much harder 'Legendary' mode.

Conclusion

Developer Eric Ruth has again created a fun and loving demake of a classic title. If Halo came out in 1986, it might have looked just like Pixel Force: Halo.
