Oh boy! Happy happy joy joy. Who has the best high score in Panic in Detroit?
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
A puzzle/action arcade extravaganza!
Pila is a top-down view puzzle/action game with an abundance of diverse gameplay elements and great level designs.
You - a terribly cute and innocent alien - must steer your high-tech Pila™ ball suit through labyrinthine courses in an elimination race with other aliens for the grand prize: a lifelong place in the Emperor's sulfur mines.
Smooth physics and precise controls make for an amazing gameplay, that you will learn to master as you progress through the many levels.
It starts out nice and easy, but ends in an inferno of fast-paced action with the bullet hell style challenges of the final Hardcore Labyrinths being likely the hardest arcade gaming you've ever faced!
The discovery of the long-lost game
Pila is a jewel from the golden age of home arcade gaming.
It was created by childhood friends Kasper Kabell and Jon Auring Grimm in 1996-99 during their high school years. The two had collaborated for years on game development and animations on the Amiga and PC before starting the work on Pila.
In 2016 Pila was discovered and brought to glory by renowned retro gaming guru Bobby, who owns the combined retro gaming and toy store, barber shop and arcade in Copenhagen, Ruben og Bobby.
Pila was developed for MS-DOS in Turbo Pascal and Assembly Language using no game development tools. All graphics were done in amazing Deluxe Paint. Thanks to DOSBox (the open source DOS emulator), the game now runs smoothly on Windows and Mac.
