I played this with my son, so I may have a bias here. This is a simple platforming action game. You are a robot in search of gold in different worlds. Your robot can fly temporarily and you must go through a few different worlds ranging from ice worlds, to desert worlds. The game doesn't necessarily stand out, however the tight controls and the cartonny graphics and animation make it a good play for young children. Definitely gets a thumbs up for its accessibility for my son.

Now THIS is a fun little platformer, adding little quirks to it that makes it just that little bit more unique.
Now I'm not a big fan of platformers (except for the good old original mario games and a few rayman games) but I absolutely loved this one.
I like how you can fly your ship around and choose where you want to do. Just everything about it feels fresh, like a whole new spin on how platforming games are made.

You play as a robot with a variety of abilities, you can jump around, grab items, drag them around and do all sorts of things with them. You can even shoot if you want. But I like defeating enemies with gravity, it's amusing.

It's hard to describe the game without showing it, so definitely check out video footage of the game and see if it's for you.
If you're a fan of platformers, you won't be disappointed with this game. If you're like me and you're not too much of a fan, give it a go if you can get this on the cheap, I was pleasantly surprised and you may be too.
I recommend this game.

It's a great game for those who love platformers, puzzle solving and little bit of action as well. The game is really fun and unique and you probably won't find a similar game to this one anywhere else.

The graphics are cartoony so they may or may not appeal to everyone. Storyline isn't too impresive, but at least it has some.
As written in description, there are 24 leves and each level should take you around 10 to 15 minutes to complete. That means the whole game should take you around 5 hours to complete.

Levels are pretty challenging and every level brings something new and interesting to the game. To get the most out of the game you should try to collect all the materials in every level. That way you won't rush through it and have more fun along the way. :D

The only thing I don't like is that there is a way to "fly" using a single object (by jumping from it and quickly pulling it back under the robot). Using this technique ruins third of the challenges and makes the game much easier.
I'm pretty sure this was not intended by the creators...

But other than that, it's an amazing game. And the fact, that this game was made by only 3 people impresses me even more.
I would definitely recommend it.

Pretty decent scroller. It doesn't have controller support(it uses the mouse to aim), but the style is pretty fun anyway.

BEEP is the first title out of BigFatAlien, and judging from the quality of this litle gem, BFA is someone to watch.

The core gameplay is always accessible. It is a physics enabled 2D platformer that harkens back to the days of Super Mario and the ilk. It feaures a nice overworld to let you choose levels, and has a simplicity about it that is charming.

The BEEP itself is a darned cute character that certainly has my vote for President when he decides to run.

Music is top notch, sound design is great, and visuals are styled well and look awesome.

Easily worth the money. Stop reading & go get it.

BEEP is a simple physics based puzzle platformer. No controller support that I could detect, but the WASD keyboard and mouse controls provide a good degree of control and feel right. You maneuver a little robot that is equipped with a cannon and a tractor beam which allows you to shoot enemies and manipulate objects in the environment in an effort to collect energy crystals. The game also has some fitting sound effects and music for the game's theme. Kind of average--nothing that hasn't been done before.

Really fun! The controls and physics puzzles are great. I love the graphics and sound too. My only complaint is that the mechanics remain very flat until the last 2 worlds. The difficulty feels just perfect.

It's a game where you play a little robot who I imagined is the love child of Wall-e and Eve. The game has puzzles that range from easy to agonizingly easy. It did however play on my love of throwing crap at other crap. If you are going to play it I recommend playing it carelessly (John Rambo style) otherwise there is no challenge, except for the last level which the horrible swinging physics will kill you. There's a hint that there will be a sequel, so hopefully they will ramp up the difficulty and give us a proper ending. Alright, could've been better.

This game really shows how we can make good 2D Platform/Action in our time.
It's the perfect exemple of a SuperMarioBrother-Like that evolved to the better.
It's not Super Meat Boy but...
The Gameplay is great, the sounds are good,
The Graphics are simply awesome, taking you where we couldn't before

Short and Sweet.
The New School of the Old School.
A must Play, A must Have.

Plus: Fun, casual little side scroller. Good physics, challenging gameplay. No annoying timers or limited lives.
Minus: Redundant graphics and music. Does not include many Boops, per capita of Beeps.

In BEEP, you are in control of a small robot that is used to explore other planets. It is mostly a platform game with slight action and puzzle elements. There are basically zero options provided to the player as far as graphics are concerned, and the game engine seems to have serious problems with frame drops and performance on a modern computer. The general presentation is basic, upbeat, lighthearted, adorable, and for all ages. The world map is amusing, as you are allowed to navigate through space with your ship and bounce off asteroids or space debris. Each planet looks different than the other, and the levels appear to have been designed well. The controls are implemented adequately, and are quite responsive even in the more dire platforming situations mixed in with some shooting or the tricky anti-gravity device. The robot's wheels also have an excellent grasp on terrain, which makes for some forgiving moments if you are new to the genre. All of this is not without some major problems related to performance. The game runs terribly on a modern computer that more than meets the minimum requirements. The massive frame drops, excessive lag, terrible slowdowns, and extreme choppiness make it unplayable. Others have experienced similar problems, and proof of it can be found in the game's Steam forum. This is actually quite unfortunate, as BEEP seems to be a good game at its core, if it weren't for the performance issues that break it. Perhaps with some developer tweaks and patches, BEEP will live up to its full potential and be enjoyable.

BEEP is mediocre.

I would recommend this game to a younger crowd, it works out and is kinda fun, but it would probally be more fun for a 8 year old instead of a 20 year old. My bad impulsive steam-purchase.
