Lococycle gets a permanent price reduction


Less than three months after release
Feb 04
Twisted Pixel's Lococycle is a rather polarizing game. Chris seemed to enjoy it. I, on the other hand, did not. Judging by the treatment that Microsoft's giving it, the general public appears to be just as divided. Major... read

LocoCycle will feature live action scenes in its story


New trailer teases the talent
Nov 06
Twisted Pixel's launch title for Xbox One, LocoCycle, already stands out by way of its premise alone, in which an unfortunate mechanic is literally dragged into a conflict involving sentient motorcycles. Today, they've annou... read

LocoCycle is more fun than it might initially look


Silly, straightforward arcade action
Sep 04
For a while now, I've had the urge to play a Spy Hunter-like game. (But not, oddly enough, an honest-to-goodness, actual Spy Hunter -- trust me, I've tried.) I'm starting to look toward Twisted Pixel for a helping hand. Loco... read

LocoCyle is like Arkham meets Spy Hunter meets acid


Another gem from Twisted Pixel
Jun 11
After seeing Twisted Pixel's LocoCycle at multiple trade shows in the past, we were finally able to go hands-on with the game on the Xbox One. It's going to be a downloadable launch title when Microsoft's new console is released, with an Xbox 360 release to follow some time later. So how's the game? Fun! It's got the charm that makes all Twisted Pixel games enjoyable.  read

A faithful port with one major flaw
Ms. Splosion Man is one of my favorite platformers to date. Like the original, it's charming, engaging challenging, and really put Twisted Pixel on the map for me. The mobile version translates most of the magic of the original to iOS in favor of serviceable touch controls, and a smoother graphical output. But it also shows the darker side of mobile gaming quite well. read feature

Leave it to Twisted Pixel to make me wet with excitement with just one teaser. LocoCycle will see you playing as a motorcycle that graduated valedictorian from assassination school. Knowing the beards at Twisted Pixel, the game will feature their wonderful sense of humor and great characterization.  Hopefully there's something a bit more substantial on the show floor. read
