Description

Beat Attack has players tapping their fingers to a procedural beat (with one-button controls), matching blocks, making combos, battling against friends on a mobile device. You're also either a dancing bear or a poppin' shark.

History

Ever played a good one-button versus match making rhythm puzzle game? Not ever, right? Beat Attack is the answer to the question - "Why haven't I been able to play Super Puzzle Fighter and Tetris Attack with my friends on iPad yet?". It was a superb design question that was a great puzzle in and of itself. The first prototype of Beat Attack was shown at the 2014 rAge Expo 2014. Still under development.

Features

  • Simple, one-tap controls.
  • Easy to grasp match-making mechanics.
  • Deep combos, patterns and methods to discover and master.
  • Rhythm-based gameplay that rewards timing.
  • Gorgeous retro characters.
  • More to come as it gets developed further!
