Bit.Trip Beat is yet another game in the "we can be retro, too" style of game development, and I welcome it with open arms. Impressions, coming up... now!
- Top-notch art style right down to the color scheme and the heavily pixelated backgrounds. It might be inspired by Pong and the Atari generation of games, but with a modern twist.
- Chiptunes... awesome!
- Simple, yet satisfying controls. All you do is twist, that's all. It totally works.
- Only 3 levels... yep, that's a bummer, but at least the levels clock in at a solid 15 minutes and range in difficulty. It will require some memorization, especially in the final level where it just goes completely insane.
All in all, it's a short, but fantastic first game in the series. You will want to come back to those same 3 levels more and more just to boost your high score.
