You have a problem with joggers. They think they own the whole park. They talk about motivation, or reaching their goals. But in this action-packed throwback to early 80s console games, you'll show them. You'll stop them yourself...in the most effective way you know.

Joggers are happily trotting across the local park in an effort to reach their fitness goals. But--armed with the healthiest metabolism the world has ever seen--you're going to put a stop to that.

Make your way across the park and poop everywhere. Little poops will only slow the joggers down, but keep pooping to increase poop size. When a jogger hits a large poop, they'll be stopped for good and you'll score a point! If you run out of fuel, simply go back to the starting point alongside the taco restaurant and eat. Then you'll be ready for more!

In this love letter to old console games from the early 80s, you'll enjoy unique, one-button, fast-paced action that only gets faster! The action is paired with classic-style visuals and authentic sound effects created with Korg synthesizer software. With two difficulty levels, and Time Attack mode, you'll chase high scores across 4 Steam Leaderboards. There's a set of Achievements too!

The joggers will come faster and in greater numbers, but you'll be ready. This time is going to be different. Look out, joggers...you're going to have a crappy day.

Available "Unlock All Modes" DLC adds three unique new rulesets and 12 more Leaderboards! Try Remix, which switches things up in several new ways...Alternate, which allows you to creatively steer the joggers...and Simple, which simplifies the rules, making the game more accessible!

Or, enjoy all-new ports of the game to some not-so-new platforms! Pixel Poops 64 is available for Commodore 64! And the long-awaited sequel, Pixel Poops Number Two, is available for NES, developed by LOKI of Orange Lounge Radio, the podcast that inspired the original game! Each of these brand-new versions present all-new challenges and thrills! Don't miss them!

Finally, if you like Pixel Poops' sound effects, you can own them royalty-free for a low, low price!

Pixel Poops represents my first foray into recreating the look and feel of a second-generation video game, from the late seventies/early eighties. I feel like I did a decent job of it. Though there are probably some subtle ways that I could make it feel more authentic, the core gameplay feels almost exactly like much of what I experienced as a young child with a 2600. The silly concept isn't something you'll remember from back then, but I hope that when you play Pixel Poops, you can't help but smile...for multiple, and completely different reasons!

Five years after the first version of Pixel Poops, it's been reborn! As per usual, I've outfitted something pretty simple with more features than it probably ever should have had. But I'm absolutely dead set on giving you, the score-attack fan, the arcade-style gaming fan, something that you'll love, and if you can get past the ridiculous concept, I think you'll love this!

I must also give a special mention to Pixel Poops Number Two, the NES sequel developed by Techmaster Games. It is excellent...a worthy sequel, and an addictive and fun game in its own right. If you enjoy Pixel Poops even a little bit, it certainly belongs on your virtual shelf. It is my greatest pleasure to publish it for your enjoyment! I hope you'll check it out!
