You play Pip, who starts as a lowly single red pixel. But when his realm is attacked he sets out to become the hero and discovers as he kills monsters he can grow in pixels - from 1-bit to an 8-bit, then a 16-bit character. Aside from the visual differences, each version has a unique set of skills that prove helpful in different environments.
The 1-bit pixel form of Pip is small enough to fit through tight gaps and is light enough to ride on enemies over huge chasms unnoticed. The 8-bit Pip is quick and can hang from walls. The 16-bit version wields a sword, allowing you to defeat enemies more easily.
Although you can transform back to less advanced versions at any point but can only transform up by killing specific enemies. This means you need to be mindful of when you manually transform back down to ensure you don't get stuck. As you progress you unlock new abilities and upgrades that help you fight the ever harder bosses and allow you to traverse the harder levels, as well as return to the earlier ones to find alternate paths and secrets.
The result is a game with familiar platforming challenge and fast-paced action, but with an additional level of thought and strategy in knowing when to change your form and which form to take.

Rated 12+ on the Apple App Store for Infrequent/Mild Alcohol, Tobacco, or Drug Use or References and Frequent/Intense Cartoon or Fantasy Violence
8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. You quickly attack and dodge enemy attacks. Sometimes the path forward requires simple problem solving to discern.
The game's backgrounds, while being mostly static, do have some moving elements that cannot be disabled that some players may find distracting, such as a plume of lava from a distant volcano. They are occasionally fairly similar n colour to the platforms you move about on, but these platforms are, in these cases, generally outlined by high-contrast borders. The enemies that transform you are very visually distinct from other enemies and glow in a bright blue.
Navigation through the levels is always straightforward as there is only one path to take (aside from optional secret areas). However, following the path can be more tricky (by design) and often requires problem-solving and concentration.
