Inside Mac Games has posted a review of pop-pop, scheduled to be released tomorrow at Macworld Expo New York. pop-pop is the latest offering from Ambrosia Software, already famous for classic games like Escape Velocity. pop-pop pays tribute to Ambrosia's roots of reconceiving classic arcade games, combining elements of various Pong-based games with themes and ideas from more competitive, comat-style games.
Here's a snippet from the review:
Nothing you do in the single-player game can prepare you for the thrill of playing pop-pop against another player, even if that player is just another computerized pop, which are the characters that players choose to become when playing a match game. In fact, I found the single player a tad boring after about 15 minutes of play. True, the focus in puzzle mode is less on speed and ruthlessness and more on style and accuracy, but there just seemed to be something missing. That something just so happens to be a little unhealthy competition, which is exactly where pop-pop begins to flex its gaming muscle. Competitive pop-pop is another game altogether and is what really makes your registration fee seem trifling.Be sure to check out the rest of the review. pop-pop will be available for downlooad from our sister-site, Macgamefiles.com, tomorrow.
