    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.

    More than just a game, BIT.TRIP BEAT is an enjoyable experience that combines sounds and images, encouraging the players to improve their performance through a series of trials. The four stages available in the basic version are well balanced, nice to see and full of sounds and colors.

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

    During hectic moments, the friction of the screen tends to work against you, while the tilt controls are simply too sensitive to be usable.

    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.

    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.
