In recent years, it seems like the gaming industry has helped save the music industry. Games like Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero, and the Rock Band series have engaged users in a familiar sense of rhythm-based melodic gameplay that also caters to their own natural inclination to music.
Pong Beats takes the familiar gameplay of recent music games and combines it with the instinctive, classic gameplay of Pong. Users become pocket conductors by simple hitting the tiny, retro-pixel balls; each volley plays another note in the piano composition that you’re currently playing — choices include Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata,” Pachelbel’s ”Canon in D,” and even the Super Mario Bros. theme song!
Communal gaming functions via the ever-dependable OpenFeint give each Pong Beats song a great replay value as well. See if you can get thru every single song with missing a note, or maybe just hit a 50 or 100-note streak in one of them! The Pong Beats creators and user community have added numerous additional songs to the playlist, and hopefully will continue building it out and ensure its longevity.
As you can see in the video below, Pong Beats is beautiful and a joy to play. Go get in the App Store, and you’ll see exactly what we mean!
