This game is some kind of pong mixed with acid, all you have to do is repel the little squares to get points and form a rhythm while you do so, there's also a boss fight in each one of the 3 stages. It's very relaxing at first, but it gets really hard and frustrating as you progress.
Grab it when it's on sale.

BIT.TRIP.BEAT is the offspring of one wild night between Pong and Super Breakout while they were both totally out of their minds on the wildest acid trip. Or at least that's how I imagine it, as I've never had a wild acid trip, and I'm not sure computer games can have sexual intercourse.

BIT.TRIP.BEAT is a rather simple idea, turned into chaos due to the frantic speeds and mindwarping backgrounds on the levels. It's simple - bat a pixel back from where it came from using your panel. Do it correctly and you'll add extra notes to the music. Miss too many times and you'll GAME OVER, YEAH!
Therein lies the appeal of the entire BIT.TRIP series; the concept is simple, but the frantic speeds and ramping difficulty can make for one of the most challenging, frustrating (and if you CAN succeed) rewarding experiences in gaming.

Coupled with a strangely cheerful 'chiptunes-esque' OST this game is a deceiving evil mastermind of pure puzzle pandomonium. If that's your thing, you're going to enjoy it big time.

It's a fun game which combines music and gameplay a lot better than other music games.
Sadly it's really, really short with only 3 levels (+1 bonus level). Also levels two and three require godlike reflexes and the ability to forsee the future (or you replay the level a 100 times until you memorize all those unpredictable bullet patterns)
