About the Game

BIT.TRIP VOID is the third installment in the retro-arcade BIT.TRIP saga.

In a control scheme brand new to the series, yet wholly familiar to gamers, the player is given complete freedom to move about the screen wherever they desire, interacting with the music in brand new ways. The classic gameplay aesthetic remains, as color—and the absence of color—are explored to the fullest.

Trip out and see if you can survive the onslaught of Beats and further your own BIT.TRIP.

A great game that, while short, managed to entertain me. It has lots of little subliminal messages everywhere, the gameplay is great with a gamepad, and the music is fabulous.

You should pick up this ULTRA cool game when it's on sale. 10 bucks is a bit too much, but I still would have paid that much for it anyway.

Void is possibly the oddest and hardest to classify of Gaijin Games Bit.Trip saga. Playing as what more or less amounts to an all consuming black hole, black and white blocks come at you from all sides of the screen in time with the beat of the track, and your job is to grab the former and dodge the latter. Every block you manage to catch increases your size a bit, which gives you more points but makes it harder to dodge obstacles and slower to move around, creating a game of give and take as you attempt to keep yourself as large as possible before having to shrink back down.

At its core, I think the ideas behind Void are really original and intriguing despite being incredible simple, but my issue with it is that Gaijin doesn't seem to have any idea what its doing with these mechanics. Through the games 3 levels I never felt particularly impressed with any of the patterns or sequences, they simply played out and I went through the motions to complete them, without so much as a small bit of satisfaction or enjoyment coming from it. Although it's a very short game (I finished it in under an hour), it drags its feet so much during levels that I found myself wishing it would end only halfway through a level. It fumbles over the line of acceptable repetition into monotony, and as a result I can't see myself wanting to ever replay it (which is definitely something the developers were hoping for, given its leaderboard centric design).

It's not that I think Bit.Trip Void is a bad game, it's just an unfocused one that attempts something neat but screws up the execution. The art design and soundtrack are as excellent as the series is known for, but where Gaijin's other games kept me glued to my screen for hours on end, this one made me want to abandon ship after only a handful of minutes with it. For as much as I love the rest of the series, there's no denying that that is a definite problem, and reason enough for me not to be able to recommend it.

A WARNING:
while the game is great fun(owned it on the wii), the port has a serious lag, making it no fun to play at all, at some points even impossible.
no recommendation till this is fixed.
