    In a genre that's held hostage by insipid mechanics and decaying conventions, Mobile Pie have created a game that feels fresh, but at the same time familiar in all the right places.

    There are some things that I would like to see added on in the future, such as multiplayer and more bonuses, but the game is quite good as-is.

    While mastering B-Boy Beats is not without its annoyances, the sheer level of polish and an excellent soundtrack ensure that feet and fingers alike will be itching to face off against the next challenge.

    As an entry into the rhythm genre, B-boy Beats is indeed fresh, but its perfectionist style of gameplay may ruin your experience.

    The developers should find the time to fiddle around with the difficulty, as that's the part that's holding this game back. Everything else, though, was definitely impressive.
