Review Beat da Beat

Brandon Girod
Beautifully done, lots of atmosphere, great music
Kind of grindy
Good music in a game is one of those things that most people don’t really think about. If music is done well, you might find yourself humming along to some of the music as you play, or just humming it when you’re not. Bad music is instantly recognizable in a game, but good music doesn’t always get the credit it deserves. Beat da Beat for Android is a really awesome shoot’em up that bases all of its gameplay on the game’s music. Every action you see is a direct result of the music.
The game is full of humor, which ads a lot of character to the game. When the game boots up, a little guy comes out and talks about how he’s going to go over the game’s mechanics. What occurs next can be succinctly described as word vomit on a the screen as a humorous way of saying, “hey, there’s a lot to this game, you should definitely check out the tutorial.” So I did. And for once, I wasn’t bothered. Again, it was done in an entertaining way that didn’t make me want to check out right after I was forced into it. Plus, you can skip it if you’d like.
Earlier I called this game a shoot’em up, which is an old genre that pits players in the cockpit and throws them in something called “bullet hell.” This is when the entire screen fills up with bullets and you’re left worrying about maneuvering between them rather than actually killing everything on the screen. This game does that exceedingly well since the music is thrown into. It’s perhaps one of the only games where moving to the beat actually helps you out rather than hurts you.
You can upgrade your ship as you play, but upgrading begins to get pretty expensive. It’s not one of those games that you’ll rush through level after level. Instead, you’ll actually be grinding away to beat the first level, and then you’ll continue on through the rest of them in the same way.
I really, really enjoyed this game for the music alone, and I’m not even a fan of dubstep. Beat da Beat is one of the best games that I’ve played in this genre on the mobile front, and I’m not hesitant to recommend it to any fans of the genre.
