Beatbuddy... The title suggests this game is all about music and in a way it is, but don't expect something like Bit.Trip Runner, Symphony or Audiosurf here. Beatbuddy is an action adventure where your enemies produce the sounds resulting in a track for each of the six levels. The levels themselves are big and should take you around 30-45 minutes to finish. So completing the game will take you about 5-6 hours. I can tell you that that's more than enough because Beatbuddy just doesn't have enough variety to keep things interesting for much longer than that. True, it introduces new puzzles and enemies in every level that you play, like so many other games really, but for Beatbuddy is just isn't enough. Plus, the fact that I experienced 2 game breaking bugs made me realize that Beatbuddy is a good game, but nothing groundbreaking. I can understand that a game has bugs, as long as they don't break the game but for a game that's 2D and somewhat linear it's unforgiving. Especially if it's such a short experience. On the other hand; the levels are well made and have beautiful art so it's not all bad. My advice to you: grab it when it's on sale.


Pump it up as you go!

Now this is a fun game! By combining the flow and rhythm of the game to the music Beatbuddy gives a new feeling to playing. Elements like enemies and projectiles within the game all move in rhythm, making playing easier if you get into it as well. The colourful environments, the smooth aesthetics of the character and world design, the giddy soundtrack and wonderful animation all combine to a joyful experience. Pretty casual, sure, but sometimes that is not so bad. Recommended for some simple time waste when you want to take it easy and take in the beats. Gives you a happy feeling!

hypnotic entertaining nice feeling from controlling the movement. yes the beats your movements become some hypnotic art. not serious game fun game. Interesting and unique game. It's refreshing to have a game that is challenging and well thought out while being accessible to all. Worth playing and recommended

Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians is a very nice, little platformer game. The hand painted graphic is an added value, but the gameplay is simple and addicting. The game is not too long, but it's good if you have some spare time to kill.

Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians is a fun new approach for the action-platform genre. The amazing soundtrack is complimented by the gorgeous hand painted levels in a unique combination that will make you come back even after a full playthrough. Whether you just want to listen to some cool music or dive in to help our hero save the world of Symphonia, This game is a must-play for every fan of the genre.


I love it!

Beatbuddy succeeds at its attempt of harmonizing an underwater adventure with an interactive musical composition. The ocean full of puzzles and challenges that await are only held back by its inability to consistently evolve. Its visual presentation is one of the best in indie history, and some of the game's best moments of musical participation will have you bobbing your head and waving your hands in the air. It isn't a perfectly rounded adventure, but it's one that succeeds at it's premise.

This game is great, it's what I was expecting from Rush Bros (which was not what I expected). This game is a true music platformer game. The music is definitely the best part of this game and all the obstacles feel they are in like with the beat of the music. The keyboard controls are bad but if you have a controller, this is no problem. The story is simple and almost non existent but the gameplay and music is much more than enough to entertain you. The scenery is beautiful but some of the obstacles can get annoying sometimes. This game is great for casual platformer gamers, like trine.
