A must for lovers of EDM, determined little squares and shiny graphics
Beat Stomper is an endless runner about jumping to the beat. It features an energetic little square that is quite a fan of EDM and wants nothing more than to jive to its own beat. Now that we have successfully established character motivation for a geometric shape, it is time to look at how difficult the game is to play. Not very, if you have a sense of rhythm and can keep track of a beat.
Your aim is to time the jumps at the right moments to make the square bounce up to the next platform. Here, the platform moves according to the pulsating music and you have to make sure to land on this piece of musically-inclined rectangle. As the square edges closer towards its destiny of rising ever upwards, the beat speeds up and the game become more difficult. Each landing is punctuated with a resounding thud which shakes up the entire screen. There are a number of levels that you can unlock depending on certain milestones, like a certain number of plays or a score. Each new level features a different soundtrack, making them worth the trouble undertaken in unlocking them.
Beat Stomper has one-touch controls which make it quite easy to play. However, one wonders what the game would have been like with two controls in order to maneuver the square while it was still in the air. The graphics are stellar, with neon colours and flashing lights keeping time with the music and really making the game one big party. Ads pop up after a few replays and are quite irritating especially in the beginning when you are trying to get a hang of the game. But once you’re in the flow, you’ll hardly notice them (not entirely true but you do notice them a little less). The game is a must for lovers of EDM, determined little squares and shiny graphics.
