The answer depends on your own rhythm and smarts. Play it solo, team up with your friends, or play online to see who has the real Break Steady "skillz!" This original game combines the best of the music and puzzle game genres. The game features a unique visual style with characters break dancing to the beats of twenty new songs.

  1. What really makes this game stand out is its b-boy stylings. [Issue#36, p.115]

    Rookie developer Little Boy Games seems like a veteran with the release of Go! Go! Break Steady. Stylized graphics, smooth 2D character animations and a slick presentation make Go! Go! Break Steady an experience not quite like anything else out there.
  3. Go! Go! Break Steady is worth a spin if your into either rhythm or puzzle games just because of its blending of the two genres.
  4. It's all reasonably diverting, but the mix of genres never really gels and when things get frustrating the game lacks that basic addictive lure to keep you playing.
  5. Transition between puzzle and rhythm is bad, can get pretty tedious after a while.
  6. A breakdancing rhythm game without any gimmick to make it stand out from the Guitar Heroes and Rock Bands of this generation. The strange thing is, the button presses you have to perform are not in line with the rhythm at all! A low difficulty, even lower satisfaction level. Do yourself a favor and let this one pass.

    Having lots of fun playing. This game is a mix between a music rhythm game (along the lines of Parappa, Beat Elite Agents) and a match 3Having lots of fun playing. This game is a mix between a music rhythm game (along the lines of Parappa, Beat Elite Agents) and a match 3 puzzler (Zuma). It seems like a weird combination. Initially I thought I the alternating between rhythm play and puzzle play would throw me off the music but it didn't. This game really forces you to play to the rhythm which is great. At first it seems tough and unforgiving but once I got the hang of it I really dug it. Overall I think it is a solid and fun xbla game that doesn't take itself to seriously. New developers Little Boy Games has done an great job for their first game. Expand
