Pixel Ripped 1989 is a wacky multi-dimensional homage to the early days of gaming. The player embarks on a journey into the screen of a classic videogame and beyond. Set in the era of portable 8-bit consoles, this game-within- a-game follows the adventures of Dot, an in-game character who sees her world torn apart by the Cyblin Lord, a villain able to break through the video game screen and invade the real world. In the game, the player inhabits Nicola, a second-grade student who must help Dot save both realities from this menace by facing challenges in the retrogaming 2D world, all while distracting the cranky teacher and escaping from the furious headmaster in her own 3D world.

There aren't many games with such a surety of visual design as Pixel Ripped 1989, but while it's deeply referential it retains its own unique character and flavour. It's perhaps aggravatingly tough at times, and fundamentally you'll be playing a Game Boy game for a good portion of your time here, but it's undoubtedly a VR experience you won't have seen before.

A nostalgic trip to the 80s that will make the oldest players remember feelings from the past. An original concept (play a handheld inside a virtual game) that homages, with a great sense of humor, lots of clichés and games that grew with us. A little wonder that only last 2-3 hours, but it's so genius that you will remember it for a long time.

If you're an 80's or 90's kid like myself then I feel like you will absolutely enjoy Pixel Ripped 1989.

The amount of fun to be had traversing the excellently designed levels with almost telepathic control intuition would be more than enough to recommend this, but ARVORE has gone above and beyond to ensure this one sticks in the memory long after completion.
