BIT.TRIP CORE

The Gamers Temple
23 June 2013
  • Excerpt: The short description of Bit.Trip Core is that it is retro 8-bit shooter meets techno rhythm game. It's one of those games with the kind of basic and simple gameplay that takes a lot longer to describe than it does to simply sit down and start playing. You control a little plus sign placed in the middle of the screen that can project a beam in one of the four basic directions.

  • Pros: The better you get, the better it looks, Finger dexterity is pushed to the max, Learning blip timings is strangely hypnotic
  • Cons: May be too mechanical for some, Bit of a one-trick pony, Doesn't reward experimenting

BIT.TRIP CORE Review

  • Conclusion: BIT.TRIP CORE was the 100th WiiWare title released and clocks in at 600 Wii Points as of this writing. The gameplay style is simple and so are the graphics, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t fun. Having to start over if you mess up after playing for ten minutes or more got annoying, but besides that BIT.TRIP CORE is a solid game.

  • Conclusion: This isn’t an easy feat for a developer to accomplish. Many games that attempt this sort of gameplay fall short, or have to compensate with so many tracks of music that the player can just pick and choose what works for them. Bit.Trip Core brazenly offers only three choices of music, and I wouldn’t change any of them.

BIT.TRIP CORE Review

GamerNode
13 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Rhythm games and I usually get along. Dance Dance Revolution , Guitar Hero / Rock Band , you name it, I can usually handle it. BIT.TRIP CORE , however, is a different story. It starts out simple enough: you have four directions – up, down, left, and right – using the Wiimote control pad on its side. A dot appears and floats towards one of the directions, and when you press it, a line appears, breaks the dot, and you get a point. Simple, right?

  • Summary: Bit.Trip Core is the kind of game that you get if you would imagine what would happen if someone heavily into the trance scene were to have made a rhythm game for the Atari era. Simplistic in both its presentation as well as its controls, the games relatively short amount of content is packed with gameplay that you can’t help but begin to bob along to the beat with.

Bit.Trip Core Review

GameSpot
9 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Bit.Trip Beat was a retro take on the rhythm genre that utilized the Nintendo Wii's motion controls in a Pong-meets-Rez experience. Though it adheres to the same basic design aesthetic and Technicolor palette as its predecessor, Bit.Trip Core plays remarkably different thanks to a radically new control scheme and added shooter elements.
  • Pros: Pleasing retro aesthetic, Striving for the next high score is fun and addictive, Challenging but rewarding gameplay
  • Cons: Still no online leaderboards, Still short at only three levels.

Bit.Trip.Core - Anmeldelse

  • Excerpt: Det er sjovt, hvordan innovation og originalitet altid fremhæves som to grunddyder inden for indie-spillenes verden, men alligevel er der ingen ende på den bagudskuende fascination af gulalderen med 8bit-konsoller og chiptune-soundtrack. BIT.TRIP CORE er tydeligt forelsket i fortiden, og faktisk er det allerede selv blevet en del af den, da det er tre år siden, at spillet oprindeligt udkom på Wii’en.
