Headphones are definitely suggested for sessions with BIT.TRIP BEAT. Once you get into the rhythm of the music you’ll be able to predict when bricks will fly towards you. You’ll need the help, because basic pattern recognition skills and quick reflexes will be an absolute necessity once you make it to later stages, although you can ease the pressure by playing co-operatively with someone else. I love that owners of both the iPad and iPhone version can play together regardless of which device they’re using, and I think that the game’s mix of old and new will make this a game that plenty of people will be able to get into.

Bit.Trip Beat then is a great game and one that I think all iDevice owners should experience. It’s challenging, original and addictive, despite sending you back to the beginning when you fail. It’s up there with Taito’s Infinity Gene where a game can transcend into a work of art.

Più che un semplice videogame, BIT.TRIP BEAT è un'esperienza che fonde immagini e suoni in un'unica soluzione, coinvolgendo il giocatore e spronandolo a migliorare le proprie prestazioni anche attraverso una serie di prove ed errori. I quattro scenari disponibili nella versione base (ma è possibile acquistarne altrettanti per raddoppiare la durata) vantano un grado di difficoltà crescente e ben bilanciato, ma si basano su sequenze predeterminate che appunto possono essere memorizzate e che non ci offrono qualcosa di differente a ogni partita, anzi. Ciò nonostante BIT.TRIP BEAT che svolge alla perfezione il proprio compito fra luci, suoni e colori, includendo peraltro una interessante modalità multiplayer online per sfidare gli amici. L'ideale per chi è alla ricerca di qualcosa di diverso dal solito.

Bit.Trip Beat is a good game. But it could have been an excellent game. If the three stages were broken up into several smaller ones, Bit.Trip Beat would be nothing but a great challenge. Instead, it sometimes causes teeth-gnashing… and not the fun kind. But I still recommend it to fans of neo-retro games and to anybody that would like to see what a real-deal Pong sequel would look like.

A colourful iteration on Pong, Bit.Trip Beat is to be enjoyed in spite of its structural shortcomings.

If you can overcome these issues, then a great game awaits; and with the benefit of multiplayer and exclusive levels, this is an essential purchase at its current price.

Fans of the WiiWare original that aren't already tired of BEAT will definitely find this App to be a boon, but the crazy speed and lengthy levels may prove tiresome to most casual gamers.
