    "Punch Quest is a 2D action game which integrates both modern mobile runner-type play with classic arcade games. I enjoy the fun when I played it. One thing I like very much is the literal Easter eggs the game provides. It is unique to my opinion."

    "Again an action game. There is no fun in this game. The visualization is somehow ok at least as it doesn't depict like real human being. It looks like lego characters of early 2000s. Even though it is ok, I still wouldn't prefer playing action oriented video games nor would like my child to play."

    "Love the concept of sword and sworcery. However, the graphics on the google play page seemed very plain. There are so many games out in the market with incredibly awesome graphics, sword and sworcery doesn't appear to be one of them. If you're into a blend of retro grahics maybe this is the game for you, it does allow you to interact with friends via twitter -I want to interact on real time, not through twitter."

    "I really like the retro look of pixel art games, so I grabbed Hide and Seek. Instead of being true pixel art like something I would find on the Super Nintendo, I found something that appeared to be a mobile clone of Minecraft, which is not really my thing. I was pretty disappointed."

    "I must tell you that "pixel art Android games" is not a genre I think a lot about in this day of more and more stuningly powerful smartphones with amazing displays. But should a wave of nostalgia break over me, Fist Puncher looks like a decent bet, though the number of reviews are too small to take it to the bank. "

    "I installed this game (Kung Fury: Street Rage) on my Android phone because I liked the movie and wanted something fun to play in my spare time. It is a pretty fun little game that is free, but offers in-app purchases. I would suggest checking out the movie first to see if you would appreciate the humor in the game."

    "This game definitely solved my problems with finding a game in this particular art style I enjoy. It's not quite as good as the original game, but is still well-above average. I like the retro feel, the music, and the general over-the-top attitude of the entire game. One of my favorite mobile games."
