BIT.TRIP RUNNER - Game of the Week
The auto-runner genre is one that’s filled with all sorted of titles so to really stand out you’ve got to create something special
BIT.TRIP RUNNER is a rhythm / music platformer with a fully character-based adventure that’s the latest chapter in the award-winning critically acclaimed BIT.TRIP series.
Run, jump, slide, and kick!
Another fun well paced game that's only challenge is you get into the rhythm of the level! As with many auto-runners, the pace picks up as you progress and the challenges become more complex.
What’s rather nice about this game is the cameos from other Indie Game characters such as Super Meat Boy, these pop up in all sorts of places so you’ll have to keep your eyes glued if you wish to spot them all!
Sometimes we don’t often talk about when highlighting features of a game is the soundtrack and really it’s one of the most important parts of a game. It keeps you immersed, add to the emotion of the game and even makes you jump from time to time. BIT.TRIP RUNNER has one of the best soundtracks from the Indie Game Genre it’s simply perfect for the gameplay.
A rainbow of colour delivered in well crafted blocks, whilst side-loaded it still creates enough depth that the story can interact with the landscapes in ways that help to make this game feel very modern even when it reflects a retro feel.
Speaking of retro, one of our favourite features about this game is if you perfectly finish a level you get to go on a bonus retro adventure, it’s like having two games in one!
With more than 50 levels, new easy and hard modes plus leaderboards and achievements you will find yourself not only challenge your friends but yourself in your quest to be on top with the perfect score!
