Now tthat Steam for Linux has hit open beta, I'd love to see the Bit.Trip games on Linux. I know that there are already Linux builds of Beat and Runner (I'm assuming it wouldn't be too hard to put the Steamworks features removed for those builds back in),...
Can't get that last tricky achievement? Commander Video's moves lacking rhythmic finesse? No worries: Included in this guide are instructions on the subtler achieves, and some useful pointers on how to dance Commander Video all the way to each finish li...
I suppose this is a rhythm platformer, although you don't need to know the rhythm to accomplish the goals. Don't let that dissuade you from trying this out. A timing platformer that creates a beat/rhythm to correctly timed actions is more or less what this is. There is some artificial difficulty mixed into the levels that irked me the wrong way at times, especially some that are late into the final levels. These points are rare, if frustrating, but shouldn't have any real bearing on the overall experience at the end.
This game is fun, and it is solid on its mechanics and its gameplay. The additional extras at the end of levels add a certain competitive spirit to get all the gold you can. If greed hasn't done that already. The graphics are good enough and have a retro feel to it. The image blur can have some negative effects, but the representation of speed gives it a faster pace that is worth the tradeoff.
The way the music stems from your actions, hit or miss, is where this game really shines. The music is awesome to listen to, and coincides with correctly timed maneuvers. The gameplay offers tight and responsive controls that make this a delight to play and except for the few artificial points in the game offers a well thought out level design that offers plenty of challenge. The end levels offer a very specific set of challenges that will require all the previous skills learnt through the course of the game, as it should be.
All-in-all, besides for a few spots this is a solid platformer that is sure to offer plenty of fun with plenty of the wackiness that is a welcome distraction from the main game. With a difficulty that impresses at nearly every level to go with strong gameplay, music, and controls, this is one you should check out.
I got gifted this game by a friend and I really enjoy games where you can "master" and "perfect" every level. I'm a collectionist.
So I have three questions that I hope someone could answer to.
What are those "rewards" that are being listed in the achi...
