Now that the hotly anticipated sequel is almost upon us (less than 2 weeks away apparently), I thought it high time I paid tribute to Commander Video's first on-foot adventure, Bit.Trip Runner. A rhythm based platformer that combines great visuals and a catchy chiptune soundtrack with some of the most hair-pullingly difficult, yet addictive gameplay around. It is a game that epitomises the tag of 'modern retro' game, and a title that easily deserves classic status.

Bit.Trip Runner is glorious to behold and hear, but when it comes time to play it is often a frustrating experience. A musical on-rails platformer with old school graphics is a fantastic idea, but the design trips over its own merciless difficulty. I want to love you, Bit.Trip Runner -- why won't you let me love you?!

Und wenn er nicht gestorben ist, dann rennt er gar noch heute - über Wälder und Flure, die an jeder Ecke gleich aussehen und selbst spielerisch kaum zu unterscheiden sind. Kleine Geschicklichkeitstests sind klasse! Retro ist super! Aber wenn das Spiel eine einfallslose Aneinanderreihung dröger Reaktionstests ist, dann rettet weder der gelungene Ansatz noch der schicke Aufzug. Schade, dass es nichts zu entdecken gibt. Schlimm, dass man sich entweder langweilt oder an unfairen Barrieren vor den Kopf gestoßen und auf Start zurückgesetzt wird. Manchmal kann Bit.Trip Runner die bunte Flucht aus einem drögen Alltag sein. Meistens ist Bit.Trip Runner aber stures Auswendiglernen des ewig Gleichen statt spannender Geschicklichkeitstest. Irgendwo zwischen Zeitgeist und Nostalgie hat dieses Spiel leider den Anschluss verpasst.
