Hot Pixel review

Not so much "hot" as "tepid"


  • Loads of games
  • WarioWare in comparison
  • Turning off our PSP


  • Most games are tedious
  • Games repeat endlessly
  • Not funny or cool

Oct 2, 2007

It had to happen. PSP has finally got its Wario Ware. Sadly, this is a charmless version of the Nintendo favorite. Following the quick-fire nature of WW, Hot Pixel is broken up into a succession of quick fire minigames. While certain games are temporarily diverting and show some character - drawing a line for a stock market crash while businessmen cry in the background - most are tedious affairs that show little imagination and repeat too often.

The "urban" flavour falls flat and some games are just in bad taste - a peeping tom mission, anyone? The rapid succession of games may be suited for handheld play, but they lack the variety to remain compelling.
