A combination of Yoshi’s Island-style platforming with a gravity gun right out of Half-Life, BEEP is an amazing physics-platformer. Despite its friendly art style, this is a hardcore platformer in the truest sense.

About This Game

From the minds of former LucasArts and BioWare employees comes the critically-acclaimed BEEP.
Inspired by games such as Cave Story, Yoshi’s Island, Trine and Half-Life 2, BEEP is a challenging platformer powered by an amazing physics engine.

Use your gravity gun to explore a huge galaxy filled with dangerous enemies and treacherous hazards.

"BEEP delivers an authentic platformer experience with enthralling gameplay mechanics... Whether you’re swinging above a lava pit, moving blocks to solve various puzzles, or simply pelting enemies with the carcasses of their allies, the anti-gravity gun is what carries this game and makes it unique. It’s a must buy for any platform gamer..."

Poorly optimized side scroller. FPS drops to 20-30 fairly often on a decent computer that runs much more complex 3D titles. However, good trading cards if you get this on a sale.

Fantastic little platforming game. Does a pretty good job of mixing it up and introducing new mechanics at regular intervals: each world has a unique set of properties and hazards. Lovely art, along with an excellent and fitting soundtrack, make this a gem of a game.

Possibly the best dollar you'll ever spend; well worth the asking price.

Very nice game I just couldn't stop playing until it was over. It's pretty easy (except the last level which is a bit harder) and really cute.
Even for a higher price I would definetely recommand!

Basic Information
Title: BEEP
Developer: Big Fat Alien
Publisher: Sunken Treasure Games, Big Fat Alien
Genre: Physics-based platformer

General Impression
BEEP is a 2D platformer that features some very interesting physics-based gameplay mechanics via a gravity gun of sorts. The art style and stage diversity have made a good impression upon myself, since I’m already used to so many bland platfoming games out there. BEEP stands out from the crowd with the use of clever mechanics and pleasant 2D graphics. It contains a decent number of puzzles that encourage different approaches. The sounds are also without major complaint and the game’s only flaws remain the bane of many similar platformers: relative short experience and no multiplayer support.

Strong Points
+ Interesting gameplay and level design.
+ Steam Trading Cards.

Weak Points
- Short experience even if there is some replay value.
- No Steam Achievements.

Rating 7/10

To be honest, for a five hours to complete game its not that bad for a 2$ game, or 50 cents if you get this on sale.

Unfortunately, the description is kind of a lie.

I was not thinking at all about Yoshi's Island while playing this, granted there might be some similarities due to it being a 2D platformer, and the fact that you have to go through all the levels of the game.
The reason is because yoshi's Island was at best a platformer to anything else, and was loved by gamers because of its classic artstyle and the challenge that was always looming around.

Also, there were boss stages, which unlike in this game, where while it seemed to have built up to a boss it actually wasn't, and it just add more to how there is a lack of any tension to your journey.
Really you're just strolling about and at best nobody would ever need to even check a walkthrough because the game is too simple with how you collect items, as secrets are pretty obvious.

That being said I'll give to the devs credit that the physics are definetly impressive and at times I was genuinely impressed with the possiblities they made with them. Sadly, the said potential is kind of locked for the current stage, and the mechanics are different for each of the four stages, basically giving you something new to work with only to be quickly abandoned. It's quite pointless if you ask me.

As for the "hardcore", the only part that was a challenge was the last stage, only because there are no checkpoints where it feels like there should be, and I'm pretty sure its where you'd probably quit the game by that point, especially since up to this point the game was fair enough in its challenge, only to bombard you with tiny careful jumps along with deadly fall right at the end.

In addition, the only other difficult part is that sometimes puzzles become unbeatable because you might end up accidently throwing the blocks you essentialy need out of your reach, which I feel like they haven't thought it through, and it shows.

That being said, the story is not entirely bad (but sure as heck disappointing) and the graphics are fairly decent for an indie game...Too bad the game already crashed to me once (I think) and at some points did in fact got some major lag for such a minium req. game, and my PC isn't even high-end at best but can still run much bigger games which is why I assume the lag is on the dev's end, plus whenever a certain enemy explodes it seems to almost tear space and time as it glitches into black boxes everywhere...

But hey, if you want to waste 5 hours and dont mind wasting less than a dollar on sale go for it, although if you want to at least seem like you have a decent library of games on your steam account, then you should probably skip this, it's not really worth it.

On a quick note I checked one of the dev's blog. If you absolutely hate clifhangers then yeah stay away from this game. These guys ain't making a sequel, and sure as heck don't deserve any positive review just for that.

It's regularly on sale for $0.49 and while it's short it's worth way more than the asking price.

BEEP is a decent indie platformer with an interesting physics engine. Use your cannon, gravity gun and a number of other tools to defeat enemies, solve puzzles and unlock new areas.

The graphics are vibrant and the music is quite good. The level design requires the player to come up with different approaches to solving puzzles.

For the negatives, the game is quite short with little replay value. And while it offers Steam Trading Cards, it lacks Steam Achievements.

Overall, I'd recommend BEEP mainly to platformer enthusiasts who are looking for a new challenge.
