Axel & Pixel is a truly beautiful game. The photo-realistic scenery is simply stunning, and the game is a joy to look at. Searching the incrediby detailed environments for random odd items that might help you is a lot more fun than it sounds, and figuring out exactly how to use those strange things can be wildly gratifying. For example, you may grow a plant until it yields a giant strawberry, then find a rock to squish that berry into juice, then toss the juice onto a monster that blocks your path. The game's only realy flaw is unfortunately a large one: The three vehicular levels—which seem completely out of place in a point-and-click logic adventure—are just too difficult and frustrating.

Online interaction: Scores can be posted to leaderboards.
