Bit.Trip Beat Is A Blast Of 80’s Game Design

Aksys has a new WiiWare game and it doesn’t have anything do with Arc System Works. Bit.Trip Beat is developed by US located Gaijin Games. At a first glance Bit.Trip Beat looks like Pong 2.0. You control a paddle and the goal of the game is to repel dots. When you deflect a bit it makes a beat so in a Rez-like way you contribute to the soundtrack. As seen in this video the bit patterns get more complicated and require precise paddle placement when trying to deflect three bits in a row.
