"One might think, as inclined as I might be to mix the scrutiny of game design with affectionately-intended trash pop, that Beatbuddy: Tale Of The Guardians is the crux of musicality, ingenuity and design I’d write scads of lovelorn poetry for." - Rockpapershotgun.com
"Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians is a digital love letter to music, merging rhythmic undertones with a 2D action-adventure game." - Digitalspy.com

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!

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.
