pop-pop Contest: 'Beat Ambrosia'
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Mac gamers currently enjoying Ambrosia Software's latest title, pop-pop, may be interested in a little challenge recently proposed in IMG's forums from the company president himself, Andrew Welch. Tentatively titled the "beat Ambrosia" competition, it basically involves players challenging Ambrosia employees to see how many can be toppled:

Basically, we'd set aside a day where during normal business hours (9-5 EDT), every Ambrosia employee would have a game of pop-pop up. We'd note down everyone that our staff lost to, and award prizes based on how many Ambrosia staff you can beat.
More discussion on the topic is currently taking place in Ambrosia's own forums.

For those unfamiliar with the title, pop-pop is an Arkanoid-style game that not only allows two players to compete against each other over the internet, but also gives a choice of several unique characters to play as, each with their own special attack. More information can be found at IMG's recent review.

pop-pop experts, Ambrosia has thrown down the gauntlet - it's up to you to pick it up and throw it right back at them.
