Hold on to your hats, Pix the Cat is here and he’s threatening to tear it up on Xbox One!
Available to download right now, Pix the Cat is a modern day mash up between those old favourites; Pac-man and the king of mobile, Snake. Coming complete with super bright visuals, plenty of neon glow, some super fast, fluid gameplay and enough content to keep you going for months on end, Pix the Cat should be right up at the top of your wishlist.
It’s priced at just £7.99, but with competitive leaderboards in place and allowing for all manner of bragging rights, three pretty unique game modes and plenty of joy, frustration, despair and happiness to be found within its walls, we don’t think Pix the Cat will ever disappoint.
