Much like Pong, you still move your paddle around by tilting the Wii Remote, but in this unique WiiWare title you'll have to bounce the blocks off your paddle in rhythm with the pumping musical beats the game makes use of. The sound of the blocks bouncing off of your paddle will even give off musical notes that will blend in with the background music if you time it correctly.
The patterns of the blocks gets increasingly difficult throughout the game, especially during the game's boss battles, so you'll have your work cut out for you if you expect to play through the entire game.
Bit.Trip.Beat is where old school Pong meets modern day rhythm action. While the game was due to hit the WiiWare service in February, we've just received word from CommanderVideo that the game will make its WiiWare debut this coming Monday.
We'll have a full review of Bit.Trip.Beat once it hits the WiiWare service next week. In the meantime why not check out our exclusive interview with Gaijin Games?
