a quiz-like game-like program featuring ONE HUNDRED columns of 16x16 sprites with VARIOUS AMOUNTS of alternate costumes/forms, culminating in TWO HUNDRED individual tiny guys.

They're all sourced from different games, anime, internet things, whatever. (mostly games)

I pixeled these over the span of almost exactly one year whenever I got felt like it and eventually wrote a little game to contain them.

Use the arrow keys to navigate the pixelchallenge, shift to move five spaces at a time, and home/end to skip to the front/back of everything you've unlocked.

To take a shot at guessing the pixeldude's name, just type something in! You don't have to be super specific with it. If you think it's not accepting something that it should, send me a message or mention it in a review.

Type "save" at any time to save, and "load" at any time to load. Saving automatically posts your score to the leaderboard. A green outline means that you've already got that pixel, and a star means that it's actually almost impossible. There are 15 of those, but they're extra.

Get a certain amount of pixels to unlock the next ten! Don't worry, you won't need them all to get to the end.

Feel free to share info in the reviews to help other pixelchallengers out!

Patch notes v1.1:

- no longer runs like balls if you have a lot of pixels

- some names added and 86's source fixed

- 100 can no longer be guessed infinitely

Many thanks to the people in the reviews who pointed out the bugs!

(oh yeah, and one of the secret achievements might unlock early if you save and load. fix coming eventually!)

omg is enter all and 4 medals dont unlocked

An Amazing submission

Now this was a different kind of pixel game I love all the pixel characters in this the game in complex and different Another amazing submission in the game world here but you have really gone one step further with the beautiful pixel details in the game and some good energy behind the game itself so nice pixel game here it's nice work


how and why do you know all this

Did all currently possible things and din't get the proper achievements, that's why its 0.5 stars off

Otherwise beautiful pixel art, could use some Rick and Morty and FNaF characters in the mix next update

came back after half a year to try clearing the game, but going off of medals it seems no one has been able to do it yet, so it looks like that's not happening anytime soon lol.
leaving my current progress for future reference: https://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/c57202bf1c8924f056e503075c27fa25

there's still some issues with how some of the medals are awarded:
- i somehow got the medals for guessing 5 and 10 impossible pixels without guessing any;
- i got the "black flame" medal while trying to get the "voices from outside" medal (by hearing all barrier conversations going forward. not sure which is the actual requirement);
- i got the full clear medal from guessing a few of the impossible pixels, while my guessed count was around 150.

because i managed to get an impossible pixel on my own i somehow found the cheat sheet.
best i could do without it was 134. sorry about that.
P.S. the creator of Lag Train is called Inabakumori, not Inubakumori
