I’m pretty sure McPixel is a point-and-click adventure. Kind of? I mean, there’s definitely pointing, and clicking typically follows – as is its tradition – but events from level-to-level make almost no coherent sense. As a result, it seems less like an adventure and more like a series of incredibly silly, largely unrelated events. Oh, also, you have 20 seconds to finish each level before it, well, explodes.
