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.
Summary: BIT.TRIP RUNNER epitomises the best qualities of the BIT.TRIP series in terms of being a fun game to play as well as honouring the pioneers of console gaming. The simple platforming mechanics are cleverly fused with the catchy and uplifting soundtrack into an addictive experience that's been designed to be hard to put down. It cements Gaijin's reputation as a developer that has repeatedly shown it has a firm grasp on the craft of gaming.
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.
