Good grief! First we get two Breakout clones and now someone's harking back all the way to Pong! (Pong? Ed) Yes, Pong, the first ever arcade game, invented by Someone Whose Name I've Forgotten in about 1902 This is the old bat and ball game tennis, football, squash and sundry other variations which are nearly as bewhiskered. Not surprisingly, Blip has been neatly programmed and it looks lovely, but the basic game is terribly old. and unlike Arkanoid and co. there's been no attempt to update the formula. Blip is just Pong with pretty backgrounds, and it's really rather dull.
