    Lilt Line feels like the finished article on Wii, and for those of you seeking purist pursuits to a backdrop of neighbour-troubling tunes, £3.50 is a small price to pay.

    A promising rhythm action game is reduced to a curiosity for dubstep fans only - and all thanks to an unnecessarily high difficultly level.

    Those who have tried and enjoyed the games from the Bit.Trip series should go for this Lilt Line. It is not as great as those games, but its formula is addictive and challenging.

    lilt line is an awesome little proof of concept that justifies its $5 cost with around an hour of bangin' beats. Jaded and retro gamers will enjoy the minimalist design, while dubstep fans will enjoy the fresh tracks and representation of one of electronica's up and coming genres.

    With a fantastic soundtrack and great rhythm-based gameplay this release lives up to the pedigree of Gaijin Games' growing library of fantastic Wii-Ware releases.

    I'd love to see a sequel to this game that's fully fleshed out, with more elaborate levels, multi-player mode, boss fights, and other trappings of the modern videogame. Until that time, we has Lilt Line as it is, in all it's simple, abstract glory.

    The gameplay is as sparse as the presentation, but lilt line performs its one trick well.

    Apart from some mind-boggling decisions in terms of difficulty, lilt line is a pretty smart buy. Just don't expect to return to it as frequently as you do the adventures of Commander Video.

    Stupidly steep difficulty spikes will upset all but the most unfeeling robo-brains out there. A shame. [June 2011, p.85]
  10. Disappointingly short but it's still one of the most refreshing experiences of 2011. [May 2011, p.90]

    The creators of the Bit Trip-games haven't really put in all their effort in their new title, but it's decent enough.

    All in all lilt line is a challenging musicg ame, with oldschool retro graphics, blinking animations and nice sounds, but there is not that much variety in the game. For 500 Nintendo Points the game is absolutely ok, but don't expect too much.

    A slight game, but novel and satisfying. However, it's not for those with a limited supply of patience. [Jan 2011, p.73]

    Its stripped-back beat-matching will leave you tapping your foot - but out of impatience as much as approval of its grimy dubstep. [Feb 2011, p.103]

    This is a must have if you like rhythm game . Actually I think this is better than any bit trip games and it really tests your tilting skills with the remote. The graphics are simple and colourful and quite relaxing. The music is superb. Full Review »

    Lots and lots and lots of fun for the price it costs. If you like Dubstep, if you like electronic music in general, if you like Gaijin games, if you like "retro"/"oldschool" type games, or any combination of the above, you will love this game, and play it for many hours. Full Review »
