PIZARRO isn't the first game to feature such a play mechanic, but the way it infuses jazz music and stylish black and white graphics into the mix sets it apart as something special. As players complete levels of ever-increasing difficulty, a bass thumps out a 12-bar blues in the background, and every action results in piano and trumpet flourishes that give the impression that the player is improvising jazz music while playing the game. It's a simple concept that shines thanks to solid gameplay and a cool aesthetic.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
