In fiction, New York City’s been invaded in film by nearly every alien force imaginable, but Patrick Jean has thrown us a loop with Pixels. The battle strategy for the invaders is in the title. Pixels arrive and slowly begin taking apart pieces of Manhattan with 8-bit throwbacks. Pac-Man gobbles up subway stations. Tetris cubes fall from the sky, combining with skyscrapers to delete them row by row. Donkey Kong throws barrels from the Empire State Building. Then there’s Bomberman… Just wait to see what he does.
