"Pourtant visuellement sympathique avec ses airs de dessin-animé fourre-tout, le jeu de Chainsawesome Games pêche toutefois à donner un peu de rythme à son aventure. La faute à des musiques vraiment bruyantes, énervantes, pas du tout intéressantes à jouer et qui en lasseront plus d’un.

So don't let the action platformery appearance fool you.
This is a very slow sluggish rythm game that revolves around rock paper scissoring the enviroment.

Levels consist of three elements.
SHoot the badguys
Shield the defense targets
And boost around to do both of those.

Its a neat concept, the visuals are nice. But honestly the controls felt way to sloppy and sluggish.

I'd wait till this became part of a bundle before picking it up.

I love music. It's always been a huge part of my life, whether that's listening to a fresh track or making my own, and I couldn't imagine a world without it. The citizens of BeatBlasters II aren't as big fans of it, in fact they've gone so far as to outlaw in and all music being played or listened to in their quaint little suburbia. Obviously this simply won't do, and thus you must liberate the town from itself...by escorting monkeys to choppers and protecting panda bears from giant gumdrops?

To try and make sense of BeatBlasters would be a foolish endeavor, as everything about it is as nonsensical and random as any game I've ever played. Putting you in the head bobbing, foot tapping shoes of the musically powered Gina and Joey, each level tasks you with a bizarre objective requiring you to utilize your three abilities: a shield, a plasma shot, and a hoverboot jump.

Where the musical aspect comes into play is recharging said abilities by tapping to the beat of the song. Keeping a steady rhythm forms combos which let you charge them faster, making getting into the groove a necessity as levels quickly become more challenging. It's a moderately interesting idea, but in practice only serves to frustrate.

Everything about BeatBlasters is slow and clunky, from your movements to character animations, to the awkward transitions between track layers which constantly skip and repeat themselves. It's frustrating to play even when it works, but during hectic moments requiring quick timing it's an abysmal mess of trying to charge your shots and complete your objective in time. The objectives themselves are of little consequence, as almost all fall into the same mold of protecting or escorting the dumbest NPCs to ever inhabit a game. You would be forgiven for mistaking them for being on deaths door for how sluggishly they move through levels, all but begging enemies to kill them and get it over with.

The artwork itself hovers from moderately interesting, too simplistic and unimaginative. Characters especially suffer from awkward transitions and an extremely limited move-set. I can appreciate the variety in locals, but even then there is little character in the backgrounds and no consistency with whatever theme the developers themed to be going for. As a musically themed game, the loop heavy tracks are uninspired and aggravating to hear continually repeat themselves off time as they unsuccessfully attempt to sync with your actions.

I'm not sure exactly what I expected from BeatBlasters III, but what I got was a dull, repetitive and unpolished experience that wouldn't cut it as a third-rate flash game. There's nothing I can recommend about it besides not being inherently broken from bugs, as the presentation, controls, and underlying mechanics all work against themselves to suck any fun that could have been had with the game.

And if King Banana wants anymore bananas he can bloody well get them himself!

Terrible game. You slog from one place to another trying to figure out what to do because the instructions are vague. In general you either shield something or destroy something. To "recharge" your powers you're supposed to hit the music to the beat but the noise you make while recharging is so loud you can't hear the music. Couldn't wait to get my trading cards, uninstall, and pretend this game never existed.

I don't know if it was the Ladybug Maid, the Terrorist Monkeys with Banana Bombs or the fact that the Goth/Punk/Alternative girl character was grooving to Electronic Dance Music...But this game had charm, and I liked it!

I can now be mistaken for a pigeon due to the constant head bobbing along to the game's music, which mind you is quite groovy.

If the sound of a music infused platformer sounds like fun to you, then I completely recommend giving BeatBlasters III a go.

Due to turning me into a raving Pigeon I have to take points off, but because of the EDM loving Goth/Punk/Alternative girl, it gains points back, leaving BeatBlasters III with a score of 7/10
