Hyper Pixel Ten Thousand is a Metroidvania-style platformer for desktop Web browsers. At the start of the game, you control a yellow pixel that can simply move left, move right, and jump. Soon, you'll find your way to a weapon, and then a double jump, and then a speed boost, and so on. The game is relatively short, but challenging, replayable, and much more complex than the first few rooms suggest. If you would prefer not to play in the browser, a downloadable Windows port is also available.

One thing I don't like about the game is that when a teleprojector leaves the area, it disappears, and you can't use it.

I am currently stuck on trying to get to a new area. I have just gotten the -hover move.

The place you need to go next is very close to where you got *-hover. Remember that you can throw the teleprojector in midair!

Thanks, I was able to get into the new area. Great job making the game difficult.

Good Game. Last two hearts are hard to get. ( In the green area and in the cookie area.) Still working on finishing it.

good game but even on easy, I already fail on the section from savepoint to the first star ability. got star ability after te third try, died the next screen. all the way back to savepoint without any star ability and stuff :-/

I think you're slightly mistaken there; on easy, you should still have the ability if you died after getting it.

hm  okay, at least the coin was back at its place and had to be collected again

Fantastic game! I finished every challenge! Thank you for this!

Wow, that's the first time I've heard of anyone even _unlocking_ the last challenge. That message about a sequel refers to a long-past failed Kickstarter; I think about revisiting this game concept now and then but I have no concrete plans about it.


i don't really write comments but i wanted to say that i've been having a ton of fun with this.  i'm at 90%, i think i need one more star to get further. thank you for making this!


Great game.
I spent 4 hours nonstop to beat it on easy level.
I really liked it.

Thanks! Stay tuned for a followup this summer, in a similar style but different game genre.


I'm raped right now I guess.
or at least stuck.
Cause I just got the upgrade for the triple jump that should be somehow activated by pressing d or something. dont get it to work.
didn't read the instruction properly and there's no way to reread it, so I am essentially raped.
cause I dont lknow how to use that new star power and cant read it up again, so I'm stuck forever :-(

okay never mind you can reread messages in the menu.
still doesn't work though.

i press y for the first jump, then press and hold y for the second jump.

now according to the message some third jump or hovering or whatever should happen.
but nothing happens, same result as If i had just tapped y twice for double jump.

so how do i do this? O_o

also your "z" is the "y" key for me (aka the key next to x and c)

nevermind 2.0
one needs to be ins tar mode for it to work.

but a really complicated setup O_o

Thanks for playing! Regarding the QWERTY-US key names, there's no way to reliably detect the real keyboard names in the browser version, and the Windows version was just a quick hack I threw together and I didn't look into keyboard layout detection for it. I might look into it more on the Windows version in the future. Regarding the complexity of hover mode, I'm glad it was something you were able to figure out, and I'm glad you were enjoying the game enough to stick with it. In a larger-scale, more commercially oriented game, I would definitely have some sort of tutorial room for a technique like that instead of just a few text popups.

this really is a cool game, got all the coins and am at the end boss.

but holy shit, that last boss has many forms! :O

Would have been nice if the savepoint wasn't 3 rooms away from the boss though.

got it down to the last form with him only 2 hearts left.
gonna beat him any time soon :-)

Okay, just beat him.
Nice game!

Love metroidvanias like these! :-)
