RIP Ralph Baer
I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...
Breakbeat Alley a music-driven reimagination of the brick breaker genre for touchscreen devices where your fingertips are the paddles. Turn out the lights, put on your favorite pair of headphones and lose yourself in trance-inducing gameplay and mesmerizing visual effects choreographed to over 50 minutes of electronic music. Use multitouch to juggle limitless balls at once and aim each one with laser precision. Bank impossible shots and score huge color-matching combos amidst a frenzied tapfest of light and sound, and reach blissful, brick-breaking nirvana.
