The lights are on
Thank you. All the Bit.Trip games bring me happiness.
Bit.Trip Beat: This game which somehow resembles pong... I don't know how. It started off the whole series, it's challenging and fun, + it has music. You tilt the Wii remote up and down to bounce these little pong objects into space. It only supports Wii remote controllers, no multiplayer.
Bit.Trip Core: This rather different entry resembles what could have been an old school version of those puzzle games where you shoot balls to match a color. If only Nintendo had thought of this in the NES time. It resembles Zuma to me. Very challenging but after losing a 100 times you will start to get better. It only supports Wii remote and has a great multiplayer.
Bit.Trip Void: You are a never ending growing Void. You want to absorb the black dots, and avoid the white dots. You will slow down as you grow, and this game is the simplest, yet hardest to master. It requires the Wii remote and nunchuk, or the Classic Controller which works even better. It has a fun multiplayer as well.
Bit.Trip Runner: My personal favorite. This game changed the whole series. It's sort of as different from the other Bit.Trip games than Ocarina of Time on the N64 and the original Zelda. For one you are finally able to see the main character of the series. You may have briefly glimpsed him in the first 3 games, but here you play as him. It's a fast paced platform game and, unlike the first 3, it does not confine you to one single space. You are runnung, kicking, jumping, and sliding your way to the goal. Unfortunately there is no multiplayer. It only supports the Wii remote.
Bit Trip Fate: Another very different entry, this musical shooter once again allows you to play as the main character, Commander Video. Also it does not confine you to a single space. Not one of my favorite entries but still good. It can support just the Wii remote, but it works a 100 times better with the Classic Controller. Once again, no multiplayer.
Bit.Trip Flux: Ah. The final entry. It goes back to the style of the first, and adds multiplayer.
This series looks like it's confusing to play judging from the screenshots and the videos I've seen. I hope that isn't the case since I want to try playing all of these games sometime in the future.
