Now that I think about it, if I said "Pixelapse" out loud, I bet most people would hear it as something like "pixel apps" or "pixie laps".

My informal testing reveals people think it’s “pixel apps” or “pick slaps”. I’m guessing the creators don’t have “dark” (velarised) L in their dialect, because it’s a lot clearer when pronounced with a non-velarised L.
