8 Bit Brilliance!

This game really hits the spot for me. It fills the 8 bit sized hole in my heart, it is beyond amazing! I reccomend this game to anyone looking for a tough game with brilliant replay value, AND its super cheap, AND AND, its cheaper on the mac appstore than on steam. only one bug that i have found, when i am connected to steam, it wont let me click and anything in the pause menu, meaning i cannot un-pause the game, but this isnt much of a problem seeing as steam annoys me anyway and i rarely open it. Still a truley incredible experience. If your still confused, think of classic pong, but extreme, innovative and exciting! one more thing, why are you still reading this review? you should be playing it by now!

A good game

This game is good, it plays well and is fun (assuming you don't miss too many of the blocks). The gameplay is slick, and works well with the trackpad. The visuals are really lovely, and very reminiscent of a time long since gone in video gaming. One issue I had was that the game actually change the sensitivity of my trackpad after quitting; I left the game and found my trackpad to be very sluggish. I obviously wasn't happy with this, but that is my only complaint thus far.

Overall, a good and enjoyable game, with a fantastic, and building, techno beat. The fifth star would've been there, if the game did not change my mac's settings.


This game is awesome. It brought a smile to my face on many an occasion while palying. The best way I can describe it is that it is like encountering playful alien life forms with a mind of their own.

The more you interact, the more the music reaches a crescendo. The most innovative game I've seen for years.
