Bit.Trip Beat

Bit.Trip Beat is an action game developed for WiiWare™ by Gaijin Games and published by Aksys Games. It allows up to 4 players simultaneously, and marks the first adventure of Commander Video. Utilizing the Wii Remote™, players will control their paddle and bounce back to a formidable foe, “the beat”.

Features

Gaijin develops Bit.Trip Beat, a Pong-inspired music game where players deflect the “beat” with music. It also involves pattern recognition and a tiered, exponential multiplier system. The controller is held sideways in NES style, and players tilt forward or backwards to move the paddle up and down. The game includes three levels, each a composition of sounds from the oldest era in gaming, and the music in turn spawns levels made of pixels to hit back. The goal of the game is to get the highest score. It also features arcade-style gameplay with a retro-inspired art style, old-school 8-bit music and allows up to 4 player in co-op multiplayer mode. Gameplay becomes more challenging as the player survives each level, through a multiplier system, which is based entirely on miss-free playing. The higher up the combo, the faster a player build a meter at the top of the screen. By filling it all the way, another multiplier number is added to the overall score (which is also increasing with each additional hit). If a player loses, they will have to start from scratch. The game also features a co-op where high scores goes into the same leaderboards as single play.
