6:00 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story
Mac software developer Ambrosia Software has just released an update for their online one-on-one arcade game pop-pop.
The update fixes some minor software bugs, as well as incorporating changes that support new technologies included in Jaguar:
-- Added support for Rendezvous. Other pop-pop players on your local network appear in a special section in the Network Lounge.In addition to the built-in game tracker and GameRanger support, the update also allows players to find competitors over the internet by using Ambrosia's new pop-pop Web Tracker.
-- Added support for HID on Mac OS X 10.2. This should resolve several outstanding bugs with mouse control as well as provide smoother mouse control.
-- Local 2-player games. Plug in a second mouse and have some fun.
For the uninitiated, pop-pop brings a new experience to breakout-style games:
pop-pop is a unique fusion of pulse-quickening arcade game action and Internetworkable combat that's more addictive (and more colorful) than a handful of JellyBelly jellybeans. Pick your character, then enter the bright happy world of fierce brick-bashing combat, where your paddle is your weapon, and your pop-fu must be strong to survive.Players wanting to get into the action can download the full game from IMG's sister site MacGameFiles; also hosted on the site is a 2 MB update for existing players.

pop-pop has over 100 built-in puzzle levels if you want to play solo to sharpen your pop-pop'ing skills, or you can play against the viciously aggressive computer AI pops for a test of your mettle. The real challenge of your pop-worth, however, is when you enter the Internet arena to play against other pop-pop players all over the world!
