8-Bit Rebellion! is a massively multiplayer online, and single player, video game released and based on the American rock band, Linkin Park for iOS.


The game stages a plot in which players aim to defeat PixxelKorp, an "evil HD empire that has taken over the 8-bit world". Players take on missions that lead them through several levels called "dicts", each one based on one of the band's members. The game features Linkin Park promotional art as the basis of the game, including posters on the walls, paintings by Mike Shinoda himself, and all six band members drawn as 8-bit styled characters.


The game includes 8-bit and original versions of their major songs:[1]

  1. One Step Closer (8-bit)
  2. Crawling (8-bit)
  3. In the End (8-bit)
  4. Faint (8-bit)
  5. Qwerty (8-bit)
  6. Hands Held High (8-bit)
  7. No More Sorrow (8-bit)
  8. New Divide (8-bit)

  10. Boss theme (bonus)
  11. Mall theme (bonus)
  12. Preboss theme (bonus)
  13. Blackbirds
  14. Blackbirds (music video)

After beating the game and stopping PixxelKorp, the player unlocks a previously unreleased song, titled "Blackbirds" along with a video. It can be listened to in the game.[1][2] This song is also available on the A Thousand Suns iTunes Deluxe Edition.
