I usually don't like timing based games. Unfortunately this game is using that mechanic in a far to simplistic way. On top of that the game seems pretty simple to me in terms of what you can do. Graphics are very pretty but I feel the actors don't work well together with the background art. And the actual game just feels too rushed.

I'll say yes because I think it's a complete game. But in all fairness it's likely you'll want to skip this edition.

Nicely done soundtrack and art style... but there it stopped for me. Animations are done poorly, the character moves like a snail which doesn't help the poor and repetitive gameplay.

It had a lot of promise, but it turned out to be just the same as one of those poorly done: 'get 3 stars every level' flash game.

So nope wouldn't recommend it, let's hope they can improve on this and the next game will be better.

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 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
