Pixelate is a puzzle game that was released on 30 July 2008.
Pixelate is a falling block game - with a twist! Each coloured piece falls on to the grid, changing the colours of the four cells where it lands. You have to change the colour of the grid's tiles to match the target picture as fast as you can. Have you got what it takes to conquer Challenge Mode, Puzzle Mode and head-to-head multiplayer?
The Buffer Zone
The buffer zone is the dark, semi-transparent area around the edge of the screen in some puzzles. Any pieces that are in this area do not count as part of the puzzle.
The following are the different game modes available in Pixelate:
You and your opponent are both given the same pieces in the same order, and you compete to make the same pictures as quickly as possible. There is a marker at the bottom of the screen which will slide towards the player who is doing the best. Once all puzzles are complete, the person whom the slider is closest to wins. Each match will have 5, 10 or 20 pictures depending on what was chosen before it began.
In Challenge Mode, the skin will change from time to time to distract the player.
|No.||Skin||Block 1 Design||Block 2 Design|
|1||Green Grow the Rushes O|
|3||A Night to Remember|
|5||Let's Go Fly a Kite|
|8||Blast From The Past|

- When Pixelate was first released, Achievements online displayed "The Very Difficult" as hidden achievement, but all 6 hidden achievements were displayed (including their orb points). Also requirements and rewards for "Perfection" were visible both on website and in game. The next day everything was fixed.
- "Perfection" is the first achievement to have hidden requirements, but visible rewards. All of Pool's secret achievements are like this.
- In Pixelate, when one has reached level 2, the background may begin to change and the blocks will have different pictures on them. Some of the pictures represent different games, such as Bouncedown.
- Pixelate is the first game to be both single-player and multiplayer when released (not including hotseat multiplayer games), the first real-time multiplayer game to be released, and the first non - strategy multiplayer to be released.
- Moving the cursor over the word "opponent" on the last page of the Pixelate instructions reveals the name "Mod Zeph", who is the main developer of the game.
- The 'Blast from the Past' background music and sound effects is similar to those found in Mario games.
- Puzzle level 19 looks like "=)" smiley, level 24 like ":P" and levels 33 to 38 look like letters F, U, N, O, R and B (FunOrb).
- The logo for this game uses the same font as Virogrid.
