Pixel Ripped 1995 is a bigger, bolder, and even more nostalgic walk down memory lane that shifts the focus from the late 80s to the early 90s — perhaps the most iconic and formative decade of the video game industry to date. By mixing together riffs off of popular games such as Castlevania, The Legend of Zelda, Streets of Rage, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario, and more, Pixel Ripped is a sleek and powerful blast of nostalgia that brings back potent memories of hunching over CRT TVs in the dead of night playing games.
Pixel Ripped 1995 is a short game. I wouldn’t call it one of those stereotypical “VR experiences”, but the game is casually three hours in length, given how each of its six acts only last roughly thirty minutes, but the game isn’t about each short time spent inside its retro environments. Instead, the game IS its retro environments experienced as a whole. Even if you weren’t a 90’s kid, what Arvore has managed to create will still delight any gaming fan in general.
ARVORE has done the impossible here, and has taken one of the best VR experiences on the PSVR, and managed to make it even better in almost every respect. Full to the bring with nostalgia, and not resting on that simple premise to sell, Pixel Ripped 1995 races through the finishing line with tight gameplay, excellent use of the VR system, and fully developed characters framing the era perfectly with their dialogues and observations.
