Beat Your Music mode features a set of tools allowing players to use their own music to create custom KickBeat tracks. Experiment with different types of music to create different types of fights!

We got rid of the bars, arrows, button icons, etc. that other music games rely on as action cues and replaced them with fully 3D animated characters. Instead of just seeing characters in the background moving to a preset script as eye candy while the actual gameplay takes place in an abstract 2D interface, you actually control and react to those 3D characters. That means you actually get to focus your attention on what those characters are doing! As you play the game, you're creating your own fight sequence with your button presses. We also let you get rid of all the other interface parts (such as score) if you like, so that there are no distractions from the action.

KickBeat features a full length single player campaign with beautifully hand drawn animations and a unique art style.

Media Quotes

  • “Combining slick combat with finely tuned rhythm-action fare, KickBeat was so frenetic it even managed to stir me from my early-morning half-awake sate.” – Pocket Gamer
  • “The hand-drawn animation really stands out in this regard and I found myself getting absorbed by the hypnotic flow of the figures moving in and out of the combat area.” – Destructoid

Finally got 100% of the achievements on this game. It was so satisfying when I completed the 18th song on survival.
The choice of songs were pretty good, the story was generic but I didn't mind it too much as this wasn't the core of the game, just a side peice. The leaderboards were fun and enticed me to get better scores. Master difficulty is where you really feel like a badass, especially on the longer levels when you comlete them flawlessly.
Definitely worth your time and money, preferrably during a sale.
8/10

Overly simplistic QTE gameplay, 4 buttons, push the one that lights up, that's all the gameplay there is. The enviroment the gameplay is implemented in is what makes it interesting, because each succesful button hit equals to kicking a bad guy's ♥♥♥ in a cool way, or missing it causes them to hit you. The rythim changes based on the music playing, much like a Audiosurft of Guitar Hero titles work, and they have some really action pumping great stuff there to give your heart the bump-bump tempo while awesome (cartoonish) action is played on the screen.

However, being a low budget game, sadly it has some downsides. The campign is exactly the same levels twice from half of it, with the same music, just with a different character (=skin, nothing else), and I think I counted 2 max 3 bands playing all the music in the game, and that's a huge negative for a game that is based on music. The lacking variety of artists really makes the whole thing feel like you are listening to Blue Stahli's Kill Me Every Time, and then 20 times the slightly different remixes.

It's a pick it up once or twice and be done with it game, definitly worth picking up on a nice discount if you are looking for a relaxing yet at the same time adrenaline pumping simple game.

It's subpar compared to the other bigger titles that made this genre popular (Audisurf, whatever guitar controller game you can think of etc.), mostly due to the very-very low number of artists and tracks (24) that mostly all sound the same with one or two exceptionally good one. You can add your own songs however, but I got bored of it before I reached that point that I'd want to try. Doesn't means it's bad, it's just this long these type of games last for me.

Novo conceito, gameplay muito bem implementada e bem pensada. Se baseia nas 4 teclas de movimento, WASD, mas num layout em cruz, nisso existem varios tipos de inimigos que voce tem formas diferentes de matar, segura solta, um logo depois do outro, inimigo simples, dois ao mesmo tempo, ETC. Graficos são nada de especial, mas os levels são bem projetados bonitos e originais e os modelos de personagem também
jogo bem único expansível e bem pensado, facil de entender dificil de dominar, otima trilha sonora, suporta musicas externas (qualquer), dificuldade balanceada e reconpesadora. Super recomendo vale o preço!

Jogo até chega a ser divertido, tem um bom repertório e um bom conceito de jogabilidade, que inclusive traz um desafio superior para o gênero, mas ficou muito fraco no enredo e mediano no gráfico.

Apesar de ter uma boa coleção, o jogo traz a possibilidade de utilizar o MP3 do teu PC, porém o modo de "customizar" chega a ser frustrante, pois não permite que o jogador edite a sequencia, ou seja, ele gera uma sequencia aleatória. Pra piorar, a sua "calculadora" de BPM pede pro jogador seguir o ritmo da música, para depois ter que ajustar várias vezes o valor manualmente até conseguir um ritmo exato. São coisas assim, que tanto para forma manual, quanto para automático, que posso dizer: "Step Mania e Audio Surf mandam abraços".

É bom jogar com a coletânea inclusa, mas péssimo para jogar com suas músicas.
