Out of AlcatrazIs there any doubt that pixel graphics are cherished the world over as the best looking graphics for games? Well, probably not cherished, and probably not the world over either. Still, you can't deny their elegance and beauty. In fact, just the other day I was thinking that there should be a world holiday dedicated to pixel graphics. Ok, so I wasn't really thinking that either.

Out of Alcatraz screenshotContinuing my pixelhugging courtship with pixel graphics, I offer up yet another pixel Flash game from Charles Forman, of SetPixel. This game, Out of Alcatraz, demonstrates Charles' amazing talent with game engine design. It features smooth map scrolling by clicking and dragging the mouse, and a spectacular particle engine for a fog effect. Based on a simple game of Cat & Mouse, the gameplay is turn-based where for each move you make, the guard (or dog) also makes a move towards you. The objective is to make it to the goal before you are caught. There are rules of movement you will need to exploit if you are to escape the later levels. Everything about this game reeks of quality.
