  • Summary: BEST MUSIC GAME 2009 - IGN Part beat machine, part rhythm (re)creation, totally addictive fun! Critics and players LOVE Beat It! EDITOR'S CHOICE AWARD - IGN BEST MUSIC GAME 2009 - IGN "Beat It! is my favorite iPhone music game of 2009....Beat It is fresh. It successfully combines elements of music games and puzzlers, which is quite a tight rope act. Add in Beat It’s over-the-top bit-art style with 8-bit bunny mermaids and candyland showdowns, and you have not only Glu’s best game, but also one of the best iPhone games of the year, too." - IGN (9/10) GOLD AWARD - Pocket Gamer “So much pleasure is to be had from just taking in the rhythms and exploring the spastic scenes of Career mode that pit walking toothpaste tubes against living candies and bear witness to flying burgers.” - Pocket Gamer (9/10) ”Beat it! is the most original music game to find it’s way to the App Store this year, and will certainly be a contender for musical game of the year in our upcoming awards show. It’s the perfect blend of absolutely zaney, animated isometric pixel art and clean hip hop, dance, and rock beats.” - TouchGen "This is probably the best looking pixel-art that I've ever seen, and I say that as a huge fan of retro consoles." - Touch Arcade ________________________________ Beat It! is a fresh take on music games.

    The marriage of pixel art and beat machine is a match made in heaven, and brings some welcome innovation to the rhythm game genre.

    A new approach to rhythmic gaming that marries substance with style, its unique gameplay proving you can provide a fresh experience in a saturated genre.

    This is one of those games that you absolutely have to play with using headphones. The beats are all super clean and catchy, and they sound crappy on the iPhone's speakers.

    Even if it doesn't have the same brain-stimulating effect on other people that it had on me, the game is a game worth playing for everyone, not just those who are already fans of music games like Guitar Hero. Beat It! is a delight to play, and a true brain-teasing, unique experience.
