Pixel Heroes is an RPG videogame which uses roguelike mechanics. This means that the game follows some rules that set it apart from other regular RPGs. I’ll explain better: a roguelike game is just like a regular RPG except for the fact that when you die, it’s all over. There are no checkpoints or save slots. This said, everything in a roguelike is random, so you won’t play the same level twice, which extends its life a lot. In Pixel Heroes you have to choose three heroes from a roster of 30, which is a nice amount. Once you have assembled your party, you will start the adventure and level up your characters. Every hero has different slots to equip them with better weapons and gear and they will improve their skills as you progress. You will have to engage in turn based combats and make decisions that will change the course of events, so be wise and fight well!


  • Pixel retro style makes things always better
  • There are 30 playable heroes. Quite a lot!


  • I don´t see any major con

Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic is a RPG roguelike game developed by The Bir Father and edited by Headup Games. If you like the role-playing and adventure games, you will probably like Pixel Heroes. However, I have to warn you, this game has no mercy with beginners; behind its simple appearance, you will find a beast that will not doubt in smashing you at the first chance.

Dialogues are very important

Once you download and start playing Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic, you will be in a bar, in which you will be free to choose your group. Once you have your pixel heroes, a man whose appearance is not very trustworthy will enter the bar and will claim that the end is nigh, and that the next time you see him, it will be the end. After those creepy words, your heroic group will exit the bar to start their adventure.

In regards to the graphics and sound, the title is quite simple. The graphics are pixel style and the interface is very well designed. It is clear, intuitive, and very easy to play with the mouse. The screen will be displayed in a 4:3 format, and the rest to complete the 16:9 is just a gray screen. The music is correct and with a retro style. It helps introduce the player into the retro medieval atmosphere, even though it is a bit annoying sometimes.

Meet your Heroes

As I already mentioned, you will choose your group in the bar. This group must be formed by three heroes you can choose from among the heroes that are in the bar. At first, the choice will be a bit trivial, based on your intuition and logic, but as you play, you will notice that the choice is very important.

Each hero is different, and you will start with eight different ones to choose between. As you advance in the game, you will unlock up to 30 heroes such as the Barbarian, the Enchantress, the Wolfrider, the Ronin, the Rogue, the Warrior, the Adventurer, the Wizard, etc. These heroes have their own race, their class, their biography, etc. In addition, all of them have two different skills to use in combat, and five different stats to improve at your will. You are free to improve your stats with the points you win when you level up.

These stats have different uses, for example, the health and life will affect your combats, and the handiness will be very useful to open a chest or to avoid traps. Apart from that, each character has five different equipment slots that you can modify with the items you find or you buy. In the slots you can place two weapons or spells, or one of each, an item for the torso, an amulet for the neck, and a helmet or hat for the head. The items can give you new movements, more defensive skills, or attack ones, you can be immune to some spells, etc.
