Just because a game is simple, that doesn't mean it's casual. Indie Pixel is a game about making shapes that you control with a single finger. It never gets more complex than moving a square across a tightly spaced grid.
And yet this miniature take on the MMO is a tough nut to crack. It explains little, leaving you to work out the vagaries of your task through trial and error, and shedding light only in small bursts.
It's fun and infuriating in equal measure, but it doesn't quite have enough gameplay to keep you engaged for more than a couple of hours.
An intriguing experiment in play and social interaction, Indie Pixel might get a little repetitive, but it's an interesting game all the same
