Ms. Particle-Man is a retro-style arcade game for the browser, iOS, arcade, Windows, and Xbox 360.
The gameplay, graphics, and audio recall classics of yore from the arcade, Atari, Commodore 64, and NES eras. The game is influenced by a variety of games, including (but not limited to) Pong, Breakout, Asteroids, Ms. Pac-Man, Frogger, Donkey Kong, Pitfall!, and even Super Mario Bros.
The goal is simple: Discover the Higgs boson. The player controls Ms. Particle-Man in his/her search for the Higgs across three different collider worlds. Each collider ends with a showdown against an elementary particle; in video game terms, the particle is that world's boss. Collide with each boss to discover new worlds, abilities, and eventually possibly even the Higgs boson itself.
Please note that the graphics are slightly simplified in the iOS and browser versions of the game. The footage presented in this trailer is from the Windows version of the game.
