Michael Falk knows you miss retro-style video games, so he comes up with an iOS game called Ms. Particle-Man.
To finish the game, one has to control Ms. Particle-Man and aid him/her in the search for Higgs boson, which proves to be very elusive, across three different worlds, so to speak. The way to the Higgs boson is plagued with challenges, so be ready to face elementary particles which may or may not be of help or to find the God Particle.
The gameplay is reminiscent of Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Asteroids, even Super Mario Bros. Thanks to Alverno Presents Sexy Results, a variety show centered on particle physics, Ms. Particle-Man was created. The game is available at the App Store for $0.99, but you can play it on Windows or on your browser for free, Microsoft Silverlight required. Also, the game can be played on your Xbox 360, but it has not yet been peer-reviewed, so better contact Falk and let him know that you want to play the game.
