Retro to a new level.

If you thought Mega Man 9 was crazy retro, Aksys is going a step further with Bit.Trip Beat, a game that I guess has paddles and balls, typical Atari 2600 stuff.  And to think I thought it was going to called Commander or something like that.  I was too young to really appreciate the Atari generation of games, but this looks like a WiiWare title I'll have a blast playing.

Yeah, keeping it short and simple again today... hooray for lack of free time!

edit:

I am only a man


Bit. Trip: Beat is a rhythm game that will come out for Wiiware. The game could the best be described as a version of pong in which the ball is a not, different patterns of notes (aka a song) will come in the direction of the players paddle and it is up to the player to reflect them, the more he reflects the crazier the visuals of the game become and vice verca.

You control the paddle by turning the wii remote (which to reassure those who might be skeptic about motion controls in music games is really accurate)

The website just launched and there is a video of the game play on it and i must say it looks pretty neat.

  


On the site you can also find a wall paper and some more info about the game in general. You can also download one of the tracks that will feature in the game: Desention

It seemed pretty cool at first, but the latter part of the video just got on my nerves.

Looks hard...
