Konami’s Beat Square Wins Best Slot Product in 17th Annual Gaming & Technology Awards
“Beat Square offers a totally unique type of engagement unlike anything else available in the market and is designed to drive untapped audiences. Konami is committed to supporting the industry with innovative productions that provide new entertainment options to reach expanding demographics, so this recognition reinforces our key efforts,” said Steve Walther, senior director, marketing & product management. “Beat Square is not only the industry’s first rhythmic dexterity skill-based experience, it is also the first skill-based game with built-in, comprehensive tournament functionality—allowing operators to launch synchronized competitions across eight machines with live scorekeeping, multi-player teams, and selectable song sets.”
When the player selects a song and the game begins, different squares illuminate in rhythmic patterns, which the player taps in tempo to achieve higher points and credit awards. Tall overhead LCD displays indicate a player’s progress and upcoming motions for the song. Machines can also feature a live video feed of the player’s hands as they navigate across the dashboard in real time.
“As the industry explores new creative forms of gaming entertainment, Konami’s Beat Square is leaping ahead with bold, high-energy play experiences that socially-minded gamers can enjoy while showcasing their skills and competing with friends for cash prizes,” said Walther. “We’re thrilled to celebrate this milestone accomplishment and will continue innovating through fun and exciting game technology.”
