Thanks killersquirel!
Yes BREAKANOID is available right now for $20 in many different flavours :)

BREAKANOID comes with an alternate levels version and a construction kit to design new game versions - the monochrome dreams version was built using the construction kit.

How is this a "pong" tribute exactly? Kinda hard to see anything pong related in the screenies. Besides one paddle and a ball that is.

Legend,
Excellent question! :)

Please travel back with me in time to 1969 to watch this short video from the dawn of pong straight from the man behind the curtain, Ralph Baer:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNRx5hc4gYc

If you watched carefully you were seeing some odd physics - yes it's the magnetic paddle! Baer created the magnetic paddle, not me! I thought I had added this innovation, everyone who tried it loved it and it was so cool, then one of the champions of pong sent me this video and showed me why.

The champions of pong are correct and I've only brought it back, but the magnetic paddle is the ultimate tribute to pong that's been missing for 40 years. Putting english on the ball to bend the laws of physics, dropping it up and around corners... this doesn't just add new dimensions of fun to the game, it puts the pong back in pong :)
