Pixel Heroes: Byte and Magic simply decides when it’s your time to die and doesn’t equip you with enough tools for a fair fight. The combat is not strategic enough to justify the difficulty. The characters fleeting charm doesn’t justify the headache.
Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic has more in common with the likes of Oregon Trail, albeit without the prospect of your disposable heroes expiring from some terrible disease (though having your wizard die of dysentery might at least serve to alleviate the boredom). Pixel Heroes may offer a marginally different experience every time you play, but in practice, each playthrough is about as pleasant as a poke in the eye. Random but ridiculously repetitive, this deadly dull dungeon hack gives little reason to recommend it.
Honestly, Darkest Dungeon seems to do everything you might want from Pixel Heroes, but it does it better. Sure, DD is three times the price, but do yourself a favor and fork over the extra cash for a simply better experience unless you’re instead purchasing Pixel Heroes on mobile. Unless you’re really looking for that blast from the past, stay away from Pixel Heroes on console. It offers all of the classic RPG tropes, but all of the problems that came with retro games so long ago as well.
