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..."

Considering how cheap this game is, I'd definitely say it's worth a go. The graphics (and art style in general, as well as some of the programming) seem to be pretty sloppy at times, but it has a unique charm to it! The level design is consistently "pretty good," with occasional memorable moments.

You play as a BEEP robot, exploring a system to collect antimatter. Gameplay consists of mostly platforming puzzles utilizing moving, jumping, shooting, and, more often than not, the Zero Point Energy Field manipulator (read: gravity gun) which you control with the right mouse button. The game takes place in an unnamed star system with three planets. Each of the two hemispheres on each planet has its own environments, music, and introduces one or two game mechanics that for the most part are used exclusively for that hemisphere. Each hemisphere has 4 levels, which each have 3 anti-matter nuggets to find, as well as a bonus fourth one which is rewarded upon collecting ~20 smaller pellets scattered around the level. This leaves 96 antimatter parts to collect. In order to unlock the next hemisphere, you must find a minimum amount of antimatter nuggets in the previous levels, as well as getting to the end of all the previous levels.

While this game is certainly charming, it's not without its flaws. It is very possible to use the antimatter to grab an item and use it to propel yourself upwards before grabbing it and using it again, and, if you're good enough at it, can be used to get over almost any obstacle. While the game never requires you to do this, it is tempting to do it to get just a little more air to climb a wall. On quite a few walls, it is possible to simply drive straight up them by moving towards them, as one of BEEP's wheels seems to clip into the wall. The difficulty curve is somewhat predictable up until the last planet, where both hemispheres present environmental hazards that make the game much more difficult (though not frustratingly so). Completing levels honestly felt a little unrewarding, and I was consistently able to 100% complete levels my first time visiting, never having to backtrack. Additionally, there is no reward for collecting all 96 nuggets of anti-matter. This may be an issue for people who invest more time to collect everything. I managed to beat the game and collect everything without backtracking in under 4 hours.

As a snobby musician, I thought the music was pretty forgettable, However, it had themes that appeared multiple times in the game, which is always interesting to discover, and the music never feels out of place. The art style feels very much like that of a decent flash game, using basic shapes and characters with cartoony eyes and solid colors. While this isn't necessarily a bad thing, it feels hastily done to me.

At the time that I'm writing this, it's on sale for $0.49. I can definitely recommend it at that price, at least. It's a cute little game, but don't expect hardcore gameplay or mindblowing game design.

BEEP is just not vey interesting and feels very much like a flash game. I didn't find it too bad at first considering the 19 cents I paid, but after an hour or so I was already bored. The gravity gun is not very fun to use and a lot of the game seems to be just stacking stuff so that you can get up. I wouldn't compare it to Yoshi's Island at all.

The most annoyng thing about this game is the very robot you play as. It babbles and screeches in a high, annoying voice, and you get to hear gems like "♥♥♥♥ you" over and over again when you shoot enemies. But unlike some reviews claim you can disable the sounds and music.

If you combine platforming from the Mario games, and mix it with the half-life gravity gun and physics, you have BEEP.

BEEP is a colorful game about physics and platforming.

Pros:
Colorful and bright graphics.
Amazing puzzles and physics.
Picking up random crap and throwing it to kill enemies is the funniest thing ever.
Many different levels and worlds, each with their own enviroment.
Cons:
The physics can be broken very easily.
Not a very good storyline.
A few bugs I've ran into, but not very many.
There should be a 1-2 second delay between reloading your gun.


I would recommend buying this game on a sale (I got it for around 0.20$ on a sale) because the game goes on sale often.


Now, for the rating: I'm giving this game a recommended 6.0 rating, but that's just my personal opinion. I love these types of platformer games, so if you don't like platformers, don't take this rating to heart.

Anyway, that's my review.

I'm out. ~Darkel

Tab and Click for Beep

BEEP is cute style platformer with puzzle solving and action shooting, but pity that it's Keyboard and Mouse control only.

Good:
- Cute character and world design
- Nice Happy mood music
- Stage select by spaceship is funny
- It's cheap and with cards

Bad:
- No controller support
- Step on damaged evil robot as platform sometimes tideous
- Stage and enemies type is few

Verdict:
Only recommend to get it on big sales

Score:
5/10
