Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians

Destructoid
15 December 2013
  • Summary: Genre blending is becoming more and more common as developers explore different gameplay styles. As with puzzle and role-playing, rhythm elements are often folded into otherwise unrelated games to various degrees. BeatBuddy: Tale of the Guardians puts quite a bit of focus on the musical gameplay. It is sometimes about exploration, sometimes features puzzles, sometimes requires combat action, but is always considering how those affect the overall audio character.

  • Conclusion: Beatbuddy makes an amazing first impression with its unique world, beautiful graphics, and great soundtrack. Sadly this impression fades away as the gameplay and lackluster story start to lose a hold of what made those first moments so unique. Handling Beat never feels quite right and when the world obstructs your view of what needs to be seen things become frustrating. If you’re looking for a game with good music and not much else than Beatbuddy is your jam.

  • Excerpt: Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians is an odd and endearing little rhythm platformer. It takes place on the planet Symphonia, where you play as the eponymous protagonist who has suddenly been cast into the role of the hero. Symphonia is strange aquatic planet, that is – as the intro states – sustained by “harmony, melody and beat”. In other words, there are underwater plants that, somehow, produce catchy music.

  • Excerpt: Beatbuddy Tale of the Guardians is one of the most unique games I have played on the Personal Computer. In fact it is one of the most unique games I have played all year long. The inclusion of music with this action adventure puzzle game is more than cosmetic. It is deep man.

Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians Review

GameSpot
14 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Music is condemned to play a bit role in most platformers: no matter how good the composer is, and no matter how moving the score, this entire element of a game's development can often be tuned out with little to no impact on the gameplay. Not so with Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians.
  • Pros: Appealing blend of music and gameplay, Outstanding musical tracks, Timing movements with rhythm is fun, Attractive art style
  • Cons: Not enough variety to puzzles or creatures in the world, Some bugs

Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians (PC) - Review

VGChartz
6 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I love the indie scene. I really do. There will always be a place in every gamer's living room for the AAA classics like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and The Last of Us , but there's something special about the smaller games crafted with originality and more love by a minute team of tightly knit friends that just can't be beaten. One of my favorite games of 2013 to date was Guacamelee!
