DISTRAINT: Pocket Pixel Horror is a 2D psychological horror adventure game.

DISTRAINT was originally developed for PC and released on Steam 2015.

In DISTRAINT: Pocket Pixel Horror you step into the shoes of an ambitious young man named Price.

In order to forge a partnership from a famous company, Price seizes a property of an elderly woman.
In that very moment he finds out the price of his humanity.

This is his story and the tale of his regrets...



DISTRAINT: Pocket Pixel Horror is a horror story. It is dark and grim but also has its share of dark humor. 

The story progresses quickly which allows for several settings and scenarios.
Your journey will last around two hours! 

The gameplay is simple but effective: You move left and right and solve puzzles to progress through the story. 

* Side scrolling 2D with unique, hand drawn graphics 
* Atmospheric music and sound design 
* Minimalist interface so your focus never wavers from the experience 
* Delve into a unique story full of intriguing twists
* Refined controls - Super easy to play on mobile devices



Right, so you're thinking if you would enjoy this little horror story? What makes DISTRAINT: Pocket Pixel Horror different than other horror games out there?
That's a good question, I'd love to tell you more about the game and its atmosphere!

This is not your typical modern horror game, jump scares and loud noises? Nope! Other horror games might rely solely on those but not DISTRAINT: Pocket Pixel Horror.
DISTRAINT: Pocket Pixel Horror is a psychological horror game which means the horror comes from its oppressing atmosphere and story.

DISTRAINT: Pocket Pixel Horror is pretty subtle on its horror, it's suitable for both hardcore horror fans and people that hasn't played too many horror games in the past.

There are quite a few DISTRAINT (PC) reviews out there, check them out if you're still unsure whatever to buy this game!



In order to make the Android port as playable as possible I needed to make some small changes to the game.

In PC version you have a lantern, but porting this over to Android brought too many problems. I decided to leave the lantern out from the Android version and instead expand the environmental lighting. While doing so I also added more color which makes the Android port more pretty to look at.

To have as smooth experience as possible I capped the Android version to 30 frames per second. However, DISTRAINT has a very little motion so this is barely even noticeable.

App ChangeLog

  • Added translations for IAP texts.

Reviews From google play store

I'm having the same issue as a few others. At the very beginning after getting the key and unlocking the door, I enter the door, but the screen is just black. The controls are still there but nothing happens. If I close the game and reopen, it is just a black screen and nothing else. Can't even play. Boo. Edit - I reinstalled and gave it access to external storage and that fixed the issue! Now I can play! Seems super cool so far!

Distriant is a great Horror game made especially for pocket edition and does a great job of conveying that horror while keeping a good story and some sad and happy times too! I recommend you play it though it is up to YOU if you want to pay for no adds or keep them, but they are just adds for other Distriant games and are relatively well spaced out. Please download. P.S. it's short so you should be able to fit it in your schedule. Bye!πŸ˜„

Distraint is a game which teaches us about humanity . This game is not only a psychological horror game but also a adventurous game . It's music score is fantastic . It's graphics are sometimes creepy . Controls are easy . The story could not be more good . I think this is the best horror game in android that I've ever played . Thanks to it's creator .

It's a very nice game. Amazing sound effects and amazing storylines. I wish to continue this game, but the distraint 2 is paid. Distraint was very hard for Me the first time I played it, so I uninstalled it. But yesterday, I downloaded it again, and spent so much time on it. Today, I finished the game. Very nice beginning, very nice ending. I was able to convince my classmate and my sister to play, and my sister is also almost done.

It was emotional . Although this game has some really scary jump scares , the graphics soundtrack is just incredible and fitted perfectly with the story and plot , which is πŸ‘Œ it makes you think a lot about life , and what really matters , as a human

Goddamn. A Touching and meaningful story with horror elements. I loved the theme of losing your self mentally but gaining what you always wanted. The game also hints around how history is always repeting itself. The game asks "Are YOU willing to give your humanity?" SUPPORT THE DEV

This was definitely one of the best mobile games I've ever played. Apparently the creator of the game only spent like, three months on it, but I never would've known that if they hadn't put it in the credits. I had scrolled past this game far too many times before I decided to actually look at it. Look, I know no one looks at comments, but like, if you do, you should seriously give this game a chance.

This game is awesome πŸ‘Œ The atmosphere of the game will give you the chills that you want: not too scary and not too boring , a perfect match of story adventure game and horror, and a great story line , I thought it will take me minutes to play it but I'm wrong, and I'm hoping that more version of this game will be released, great job developer Iove this game ❀️

Absolutely loved it. Fantastic psychological horror with twists akin to my own nightmares. Can't find anything like it, besides the sequel, which is also awesome. I highly recommend this game to anyone with an affinity for darkness with a touch of tragic afterthought. Well done Jesse! Keep up the good work!

A must play for story dwellers. Not much of a Chills-up-your-spine horror game, but an amazing psychological horror one. The ads are really not that offensive, and game play is really straightforward. The story is excellently crafted. Overall, a great game!

I was taken aback by having no dialogue in the dialogue boxes and gave it a harsh review, for which I apologize. After contacting the developer and redownloading the game, the issue was resolved. I haven't gotten far, but, so far, the game has a lot of good potential.

Loved this game so much I paid for the ads to be removed (not that they were too much a problem compared to other games)very cute yet dark little game. Just about to start Distraint 2. More games like this please!

This game was really awesome .....really a good story .......I really loved it ........got emotional at the ending........hope more games will be created by your family(related to same topic).πŸ˜˜πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Loved this game, also the ending is really depressing, try thus game and I think the " Distrain 2 " is awesome, cant wait to try it !!! And it has no bugs

The story of this game is amazing πŸ‘ the details are πŸ‘Œit is funny and sad at the same time one of the best games I have ever played you need to download it you will not regret it.

It was a really fun game to play!! Amazing story and twists it is probably the best story game I have played in forever!!!

What an amazing game. I loved every bit of it. Story, gameplay, music, sound effects everything is top notch

Been playing a couple hours now and I love it. I just paid for the ad-free version and I wish Google Play had the option to pay more if you want.

I love the story!!! The audio and other features are cool! Play distraint 2 when you finished it :)

To anyone that sees this review, stop reading the rest and just download the game. This masterpiece delivers a message the world needs to know. "What comes around, goes around."

This was the best Horror game I have played It has an amazing atmosphere and please support this developer

Its a decent game...I recommend it if want some calm with a little thrill puzzle game

The game is just right for adventure and horror (not that really horror)

For people who say game breaks you have to enable the storage permission and then it works fine

Its AMAZING, really breathtaking and i cant say anything else, keep it up developer!!

Even it is pixelated, the atmosphere makes it creepy.

Nice game and awesome story... I like it... It gives me chill and its a good gameπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

A MUST PLAY GAME keep it up best game full of puzzles and horror make more like this

I like the way of he game immerses u into a dark story that has a very unexpected twist at the end

Would love to play, but it keeps freezing after finding the key in the very beginning

Amazing horror game. Can't sleep anymore so if that doesn't prove how scary it is then idk what will

Wow! Thank you, dev, for this great game! I played it today until I finished it, yes, really! The story is truly amazing and the ending also. But the game screen seemed a bit narrow and dull while playing which made it difficult to see clearly. And the controls could have been made better by using joystick control, or by putting the LEFT-RIGHT buttons on one side of the screen and A-B-O buttons on the other side. But overall, one of the best games I've ever played! Thanks again!

Very good game. Usual wouldnt expect this type of game to be good, but it was amazing. Pretty creepy ,wierd ,and scary, almost made me throw up once. But really well made overall. The only time the scare really got me, like i jumped, was when i had to be each of his bosses,and pick up the phone. I hated that part. It I made it worse because I had my tablet connected to a speaker at the time. So it was like 3x as loud. I really wished you woudlve made the second one free sorry. But truelly great!!

Warning: the app NEEDS permission to your phones storage to work properly! Hence my old 2star rating. It seems like a decent game, although I'm having trouble figuring out whats going on. I spent way too much time at the first puzzle. (dev, expect your users to be dumb like me and add instructions all the way to the first door unlock, please) the game itself is not really scary, more of a puzzle solver app. Not what I expected from reading the description in app store, hence the 4 star rating.

This underrated horror game is the best android horror game there is right now. The game does not use cheap jumpscares and stealth chases, it is a puzzle side scroller, with a great story. The ending is dark, and i think that Price has started an endless loop, or at least is a part of it. I am saving up some money to buy the sequel, thank you devs for giving is this masterpiece!

I loved this game! It is a lot of fun, challenging at times, doesn't take up too much space, and was a very immersive experience. I was hooked! any time I got a little free time I'd play. I'll definiteky be downloading the second one ! it's hard for me to find good games, I won't forget this one any time soon. I also love the controls and the fact that it really does seem the creator thought of everything as far as different objects, possible player choices/actions, and responses ! Extremely good

The game is so much fun. But I played like first 10 minutes and I got the ice cube in the oven. I unlocked the locked door and the game crashed. My screen went black, I couldn't move or do anything. I play on android so it may be something wrong then. If any of creators sees this, I'd like the glitch to get fixed, if any way possible. I don't force anyone to do anything about this, but I can't play the game because of it. Just wanna say good job. The game is amazing and all.

Bug, cant move and go to the dog, at the forest after finding the glove

First of all, I thought that "What is so special about a 2D pixel game?" But when I downloaded and installed this game,I was speachless!! It's pleased my mind. Good storyline with great ideas!! Just #WoW!! Thanks for making this game guys!πŸ‘ Please make more and more game like this. πŸ‘‰"All The Best"πŸ‘ˆ

This is one of the scariest pixel games I have played besides Doom.This one is more scary than the deluxe because there are some brighter colors than in the deluxe version. There are some super hard puzzles, but I do like a challenge in games sometimes. Plus the storyline kept me interested.

I previously rated this one star as a glitch made the game not free as advertised, or even playable. After a response from the developer and an update, I've decided to change my rating to 4 stars. The game is good, but not quite my thing. My only real complaint is how dark it is at times.

Really good horror/puzzle game with fun twists and game play, I love the concept and this is a 5/5 game, no ads except for ads about distraint 2 or destraint deluxe which I don't mind because of how well thought out and good this game is, keep up the good work.

I had passed this game over for a long time and by chance downloaded it by accident. It was best mistake I ever made. Right away I fell in love with the game and became invested in the characters . Enjoyed it very much look forward to buying the new one!!

This is a really good game. I enjoyed it very much. Wishing you all the best in the future :)


This is actually a 3 stars game. But because of deluxe edition I will leave a 5 star review. Great game. Try this and if you like it you will probably love the deluxe edition.

Great story with good gameplay

All i havr yo say about this game is wow. Its sooo good amd I almost cried at the ending. K wish there were more like this. I think you should get the game but the level with the flamrs is the hardest but don't give up.

Game goes to a black screen aftee using the key at the beginning of the game. Controls are still there. After restarting and pressing continue the screen is completely black and nothing can be interacted with. Could you please have a look?

man you really did good im 14 and if i had money id put it into this game its super creepy definitley not playing this in bed! but thanks for the game and all the thought that went in it. Thankyou appeciate it! keep it up!

this is an amazing game however after completing the 4th part when you are making coffee it stopped working :( i dont know what to do!

Thank you Developer! This is the first game that touches my heart.. I am thankful to stumble across this game.. Please if you are into games with story.. Highly recommend this game!

this game is excellent, dripping with atmosphere, great sound design and character art as well, very creepy

Its a lovely game, sad and depressing but amazingly made, especially the ambience πŸ‘

I just saw your game on the PSN store! Congrats! I'll buy it again on PS4

NEEDS CONTROLLER SUPPORT. Other than that, it's an overall cool game.

5 stars its amazing and who made this game I dont now who made this game but your game is cool the only thing that its confusing.........

I like how the story of the game were plotted.

It actually cost money I get that they have to make money but it's a scummy things to do. They should just say that it cost money from the start instead of making you download the app and click on it to find out

So misleading...This game shouldn't be free on play store cuz once u install it it'll ask you to pay before u play..I mean why?

after unlocking the first door Game went to black screen! pls fix and I will give 5 stars ....thank you.....

I cant walk past the red elephant thing to get to any doors.....anyone else have this problem?

Wow, I want to deeply apologize for coming off way too hard on you with my previous rude comment. I still would very much like to give your game a chance since I did see a lot of great reviews on it. It looks promising, so I did go ahead and download it again. I didn't get far because like I said, I wanted to fix my review with a sincere apology. I'm very sorry for acting out horribly, and didn't mean to discourage you on your hard earned work. Thank you for replying kindly and fixing the issue.

Very good game. Its depressing as all hell but, I love it. The story is interesting and captivating, the controls are simple, the puzzles aren't hard to understand and the gameplay is smooth and nice to look at. There were a couple of minor annoyances though. One was the unnecessarily long fadeouts and some sounds were a bit too loud, such as the saving. Still, great game, good job guys.

A different take to horror... Sometimes, the truth can be so horrific, you don't need jumpscares, though some are cleverly placed in the game. It easily gets you immersed into the story of Price and all that happens in his life. Definitely finish the game whatever you do.

Just finished it... did it as a one-time thing (couple hours... haha!) Was skeptical at first... But these devs are really smart!!! They proved that simplistic gameplay and pixelated graphics can become a fantastic game when combined to a great soundtrack and awesome storyline. Don't want to spoil anything, but that game is probably the creepiest one I played since Silent Hill 2: Restless dreams edition... I feel so bad I can't afford to pay for Deluxe edition and for Distraint 2... :-(

I can't described how amazing this was,to the music to the meaning..and even the end, I wish it never ended but when it did my heart shattered and my mind was in awe..I wish I could type more there's so much I wanna say about the game but I don't know how to word it.....I F**KING LOVE THIS GAME...jess don't you dare stop making games...please?

Its not important to write reviews for simply the best story-based games.

I love the game i played it before but that are bugs in it but its a cooooooooooooooooooooooool game

Best horror story game I played in my entire life

This game was absolutely beautiful. The graphics are simple but the story line is very gripping and the puzzles are simple but fun to solve. WONDERFUL game! Very well done. I made sure to remove the ads to support the creator because this was so beautifully done.

i don't understand how to play this game but it's look like this game try to make my mind openπŸ‘€

Really game didn't even opened also and it asking to pay money

UGH EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING. I have zero complaints. This game is just straight out awesome. If anyone is looking for a really good game, with a well thought out storyline, then this game is for you. Love this 😭😍

Perfect indie game that can be finished in one sitting, almost as if it were watching a movie. Womderful story line with amazing puzzles it will surely leave you at the edge of your seat

I loved this game. I'm a huge fan of pixel horror, I prefer it better than clear graphics. There's something so vintage about it. But anyway, the puzzles aren't too easy or too hard. The scares are subtle and have a good effect.

I had this game on another device for a while and I remember it being very fun (and terrifying!!! That's a good thing lol) On a personal note I may not reinstall it because I'm not all that good with horror but it really was enjoyable! Thx

Fantastic horror game, had a good level of a challenge element, ambient music and overall soundtrack was well thought out. Graphics were fantastic. It's very rare for me to give very good ratings for games, but I appreciated this game's unpredictability and the aversion to having a 'fairy tale happy ending'. I have recommended this game to other people, and would tell pixel-horror-game creators to look to this game for examples in creating a good, unpredictable storyline for a game.

Regrettably non functional with LG Q60 2019. All that loaded was a screen inviting me to spend Β£1.29 and no option to skip or bypass for now. Likely a compatability issue with the Q60. Shame.

I remember playing this game on my channel. It was free then. I have no problem with the game costing money. But it is a little cheap that the play store is selling this game as free to play, but when you download it you are forced to pay to even see the game. Why not just make the game itself cost money. This 8s cheap and underhanded.

It's something that Markiplier would play.There are only 3 controls(L,R,item select).The dim lamps and pix. creates the whole atmosphere.It's not extremely frightening, but something that you would know but then doesn't want it to happen(oh no, please, can I go back,I don't want the poor granny to die).One best point about this game are the speechesβ˜†β˜† Sense of humour. Credits were funny too(his brother as a test rat and his sons for giving him peace).One downside is 1/2 places need directions.

its a very very good game its actually my favorite but like I'm at the painting part and everytime I breathe the green stuff and go to the painting for the red peice right when I'm a few steps back it goes off, during it my charater speeds up and slows down and so does the time so it would be great if you help me figure out whats happening this has also happened to a few people

A cool lil App!! - a big notification to the developer. For the time it took to make this game it was well an truly worth it. shame about the ads but dont blame you as you can see the admiration youve put in. To anyone downloading then I say give it a go. shame I cant fork out for his next installment but it had me hooked from the off go. Many thanks Dev. Enjoyed

One of the best mobile games I've ever played. Simple, but at the same time challenging, nice plot. The environment has some ressemblance to Silent Hill, which makes it even better. 5 stars, easy. And thanks for the bands recommendation in the credits! I'm listening to all of them. \m/

Nice game so perfect make another one sir your a true artist😍 i love your work .. it just the thing about the ending a terrific ending for mr price ... But its still ok .. i love the game..😍

I cried, not just because of the story but to the fact that it was the end already. I hope more games like this to be released! Superb! I'll rate this with five stars! Excellent! P.S. my suggestion is to make it as colorful and clear on mobile phones. Thank you!

OMG!!!OMG!!! THAT WAS FANTASTIC!!! I have never cried in a game before and i did a couple times while playing this. I loved mrs Goodwin and her relationship and impact on price was awesome. This by far the best most emotional game I have ever played. Thank you!!! Thank You!!! What is more amazing is this was done in 90 days.

Wow wow wow what a game man such an an Amazing storyline and better than all such games in playstore and i played ditraint 2 Too and i just finished it now and it was also amazing more than distraint 1.i appreciate your hard work .I dont have any words to say thanks for making this game i really really enjoyed it and............... I salute u😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘

I really wanted to enjoy this game. But after I unlocked the first door, in the room where there was a corpse, the screen goes to black. The controls are still there, but my character is nowhere to be found. I tried to start a new game, but it was still there. I even reinstalled it. It was still there. I don't know if this was a problem only I had, but please fix it!

I dont usually play horror games, but this is the perfect game for me. It's so minimalistic, the artstyle looks so cool, and the controls feel really good.

Awesome Mobile Horror Game. Check it out, it has much to experience, I played this a year back but I'm gonna try it again. Concept is amazing.

I downloaded it, denied it access to my media and photos, then it showed me an image of some headphones and then "-$1.49" on the screen in pink. Don't know what that was about so I got it of there immediately and uninstalled it. Too sketchy to continue.

It is really a shame when this game didnt get any popular. The story is quiet amazing. the control kinda slow but im fine with it. it make my emotions grewing stronger after each puzzles. This game not only focusing on puzzles. you must try this, it wont waste your time. no ads

I love the game its so exciting for whats gonna happen next like the situation of both the protagonist and the people who you interact with. And especially the sfx of the game its perfectly fit of the situation where an event is happening thats all. I love the game, I love all of it 10/10 great job.

Very well made game, reminds me of old flash games that were done with a lot of love.

one of the best horror game.

love this game its easy and simple the graphics are great and the story is beautiful its just can you guys please make distraint 2 free i havent gotten to play it because it costs money

One if the best games ove ever played! The suspense is well done and the story is well paced making you play till the very end in one sitting!! I wish there was a sequel or prequel! Also the attention to detail is astonishing

I really, really love games like this. Everything was perfect! The ambiance, the music, just basically everything. I barely write reviews but you deserved the whole 5 star rating.

Such an amazing game I love everything about it! You are a legend.
