I don’t often play games, but I vividly remember the hours I put into Smash Hit, a beautiful arcade game for iOS and Android. It quickly became one of the App Store most-downloaded games, and rightfully so.
“It's both terrifyingly interesting and interestingly terrifying”
According to VICE, TNW Conference is quite the event
It takes classic pinball mechanics and turns them into something completely new, by lining up a seemingly endless array of levels. By using the flippers, you need to get the ball as high up as possible before time runs out. Luckily, there are a multitude of power-ups and minigames to gain extra seconds.
All of this takes place in a gorgeous neon-lit world accompanied by throbbing 80s beats, heavily inspired by the aesthetics of movies like TRON.
The game is a lot of fun to play, thanks to the great combination of simple but exciting gameplay and flashy graphics. Even though it starts off pretty easy, the difficulty quickly ramps up — I’m currently totally stuck on level 3.
It’s available right now for both iOS and Android for the unbeatable price of free, with the option to shell out $1,99 for extra features like the option to start from saved checkpoints.
