Glitches

Pixel Pop glitch00:19

Pixel Pop glitch

The freezing screen glitch

  • On the fifth level of Pixel Pop (level one on medium mode), if the player loses the level the game will sometimes freeze the screen, but the sound in the background will keep playing as if they are playing the level over.
  • Also on the fifth level, occasionally some of the lids from the coffins will be gone. They return when the vampire comes out of the coffin, or if the player refreshes the tab.
  • On level 11 of Pixel Pop (level 1 on hard mode), the player will lose automatically at either one or two hearts even if they do not do anything.
  • If player quits during the game, he/she will lose two or three hearts with one miss. Sometimes all hearts will be lost, which will freeze the game, but the music will still continue to play.

Trivia

  • Two of the characters in Pixel Pop are two movie characters, the superhero being Ultraman and the dinosaur being Godzilla.
  • Pixel Pop is actually a type of music, similar to the music used in-game.
  • In level 2 of Rubble Trouble Tokyo, a building has the male superhero dancing and another building with the dinosaur dancing as well. The other building has a pixelated gorilla beating his chest.
  • The Nitrome.com 2.0 icon of Pixel Pop has the exact cartridge appearance of a Nitrome.com 2.0 NES game, even though this game is not an NES game as it has a start-up that parodies the startup Commodore 64, while the NES's startup is different. Furthermore, the graphics are different than regular NES games.
  • Pixel Pop is the only game to not allow any mute audio configurations within the game itself.
  • The game is similar to the Rhythm Heaven series.
  • Unlike most Nitrome games that show fake blood (such as green blood), Pixel Pop is the first and only game to show actual blood. On the vampire level (first level of the second set), when the player misses a vampire, a vampire will appear on the screen with red blood around the edges of the screen.
