BLOmma is four player arcade game, heavily inspired by Pong and Breakout. You score by smashing the ball into into the bump bar guarded by either one of your (up to) three opponents.
Unlike Breakout and Pong BLOmma allows you to move your paddle over the entire game area, and even rotate it (this is why there’s two joysticks per player)! Obstacles spawn in the center of the playing field, which allow you to bounce the ball, catch powerups and set off chain reactions.
BLOmma was awarded “Best Arcade” at Gotland Game Awards 2007, and was nominated in the Swedish Game Awards 2007.
Shadow Waltz is an arcade beat-em-up with a physical interface.
