BIT.TRIP RUNNER

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I have friends who like to call themselves hardcore gamers. They like to make the wild claim that the Wii does not have games for them. BIT.TRIP RUNNER is a video game for the hardcore gamer. This WiiWare title is amazingly difficult. I do not care how good you think you are. BIT.TRIP RUNNER will humble you in a heartbeat. Oh sure you will breeze through the first few levels. Trust me this game will illicit an emotional response, and most likely not a good one.

  • Excerpt: Bit.Trip Runner dons a sweet disguise. Your senses detect a platformer, what with constantly leaping over obstacles and deftly dodging perils all to collect massive sums of gold. Even the retro graphics belie that of an old school side-scroller. But somewhere in the back of your head, you realize what's going on. The way you press buttons to a beastly rhythm and nod your head to sick beats while carefully snagging the gold... it's a musical game, baby.

  • Conclusion: In all seriousness, I do hope this isn't the end for the Bit.Trip series. These guys are onto something special, and I hope their ideas can eventually reach full bloom. Until that time, Bit.Trip Runner pulls out ahead of the competition to give fans more great gameplay at a ridiculously low price.

  • Excerpt: Nowhere to hide, just keep on runnin'. The bit.Trip series is one of the few reasons it's still worth browsing games on Wiiware. Way above all the crap we are guaranteed to get every week, Gaijin Games has been on the rise. Their fourth game bit.Trip Runner is their best yet, though it's not devoid of a few issues.
  • Pros: Cool mix of gameplay and music, Sharp presentation, Starts off easy..., Lots of variety in levels, Background and foreground gets confusing, Pace can get tiring

  • Excerpt: Have you ever played a side-scrolling platform game and tried to plough through a level as quickly as possible? Have you ever felt the satisfaction of getting from start to finish without stopping, getting past every obstacle without it slowing you down? This is the satisfaction that Bit.Trip Runner recreates over and over again.
