Hot shots from HOT PXL

Wednesday 4 October 2006
A new set of screens have escaped from the style labs of upcoming PSP minigame collection HOT PXL - for the full effect, make sure you flick between them every five seconds or so.

If Nintendo's Wario Ware was a celebration of gaming being gloriously geeky, HOT PXL wants it to be so cool it hurts, mixing modern-day street art and culture with flashbacks to the shaky lines and, yes, hot pixels of '70s Atari arcade games.

From what we've played it actually works far better than it should - it's fun, and has a style (well, about a hundred of them) of its own - when it's not trying too hard to be too cool for school.
