Pebbledash is an XBox Indie Arcade Game by developer Lutas Arts. The concept is primarily the same to similiar styles of retro puzzle games where the player must dig through levels of earth, avoiding any falling rocks and strange creatures that might be down there.
Often the puzzles become more than simply survival and keys must be collected from perilious locations and monsters must be dispatched to progress.
With a target audience primarily children, a lot of the early music had to be lightened to make it a little less sinister and gradually as the game took further shape the soundtrack itself took on a chiptune style in the form of multiple layered synthetic sounds and catchy, repetitive arpeggiated melodies.
You can download a free trial of Pebbledash from the XBox Live Marketplace however the full game can be downloaded for only a few XBox points. Click here to view the arcade puzzle game Pebbledash on the XBox Live Marketplace.
Originally there were plans to include a chiptune version of the Synoiz track Getting Safer as a hidden Easter Egg however this and another plan to include the soundtrack as part of the game download never came to fruition.
