5 Addicting Video Games Without Music

Published

 on

Name a successful video game without music. Put any video game on mute and that is an easy answer. Music is the key part of modern video games and without it, you are stuck with an awkward feeling, like something is missing.

Can you imagine playing a Call of Duty game, bringing havoc to the battlefield, without background music? Would not you adore playing Peter Jackson’s King Kong (2005), developed and published by Ubisoft, if it lacked background music?

While you desire to destroy megaprojects, the game will not allow such acts, but at least it can remind you of a silent film. Would you feel like you are watching paint dry or would you feel like it is an unfinished piece? Here is a list of 5 addicting video games without music. 

5. Bowling (1979):

This 1979 video game has the unoriginal name, Bowling, for Atari 2600. The graphics appear like they were developed by a preschooler (sketching stick figures), the game kills time. Even Superman (1979) for the Atari 2600 has no music. How many people are begging for Superman  (1979) to launch on modern consoles? We can deal with Bowling without music, but a quality Superman game has higher expectations. 

4. Asteroids: 

The space-themed, multidirectional shooter, arcade game, Asteroids (1979), will still give you a good time. Atari’s Asteroids was released in the golden age of arcade video games, so if you forgot that Asteroids lack music, you probably were experiencing an earworm (which is referred to as a brainworm, stuck song syndrome, sticky music, or Involuntary Music Imagery).

3. Solitaire: 

Microsoft Solitaire debuted on Windows 3.0 in 1990. What were you expecting to be on the top 5 list? Did you expect Frogger (1981) where you can hop across a busy, horizontal road, avoiding being roadkill (dodging speeding cars, trucks, and bulldozers) and navigating a hazardous river.

2. Super Breakout (1978): 

First, Breakout released in 1976 for Atari 2600, then Super Breakout released in 1978 for the Game Boy. Super Breakout is like Breakout, when you bounce a ball into destructible bricks, but it provides the gamer with three different game modes. The three game modes are Double, Cavity, and Progressive. Double gives the player control of two paddles with two balls, simultaneously. Cavity has two paddles, but one ball and progressive advanced the whole wall downward, gaining speed, the longer you play.

1. Amazing Maze (1983): 

Amazing Maze (1983) for the DOS can make you want to play Pac-Man. The goal of Amazing Maze is to find your destination in the maze.
