Gaijin Games' minimalistic BIT.TRIP series has alluded me during its run. Since it's on the Wii, and since I lack a Wii (the things that sound so strange when you say them aloud...) I hadn't had the opportunity to ever get a hold of them myself to see what all the fuss was about. Well now all of us in the Wii free zone can finally see for ourselves!
BIT.TRIP BEAT, the first of the series, has been released both on Steam and in the App Store. Now one can play it on a television, computer, or on the go! The experience is that of a pong rhythm/music game, an odd combination but full of energy and a lot of fun. Definitely check this out if you haven't been able to in the past.
It's $1.99 for the iPhone version and $9.99 (currently 10% off) for the Steam version.
