Want to interact with your music?

Want to fly around and shoot things in space?

Want to get a seizure and/or a migraine in just thirty seconds or less?

Look no further.

"Bullet Hell" themes are heavily layered on top of this shoot-em-up game, so if you are into constant panic and you have quick reflexes and good observation skills, this game will be just perfect for you.

I will be blunt with this next part. If you are epileptic or if bright and rapidly-flashing lights have any sort of negative effect on you, for the love of all that is pure, PLEASE stay the ♥♥♥♥ away from this game. There is almost never a single moment in the gameplay where some part of the screen is not rapidly flashing and changing colors. Luckily, I am not sensitive to rapid flashes or anything like that. But, seeing as how this explosion of lights and color was enough to make my left eye burn to the point of watering over and hurting really badly after playing through just two different songs, it will tear a [flashing] light-sensitive person to shreds in just a matter of seconds. Play carefully, people.

I give this fever dream a 10/10.

[WARNING]

NOT FOR PEOPLE WITH EPILEPSY CONDITIONS NOR THOSE SENSITIVE TO STROBBING AND FLASHING LIGHTS! WHILE YOU CAN REDUCE THE INTENSITY IN THE SETTINGS IT IS STILL WAY LARGER THAN THE NORMAL AMOUNT!

[WARNING]

TL;DR: Spaceship, meets star arena meet asteroid with your music providing the tempo for the weapons and enemies! Enjoyable for those who like to challenge themselves since the INSANE difficiulity is definitely insane!


Review Starts Here
What is Beat Hazard?
Beat hazard is a 2D top down space shooter game in the veins of asteroid except you have enemies and boss fights. Pretty darn awesome. You have to supply it with your music though.

1:Graphics
Notice the [WARNING] thing above? well not kidding. Each effects is the same as a single flashbang and every shots and explosion from either you or the enemy will sear the screen as bright as the sun causing temperorary blindness and mania in the affected gamers. God forbid you crank up the effect to 200% like i did and played for 30 min straight.

The actual graphics themselves are very good as far as 2D spaceshooting game is concern. Sprite move, shoot and explode brilliantly when they die. Meanwhile the 3D effects zoom across the screen blinding you with their colourful effects. And they are bright.

2: Sound
Shooting sounds good, explosive sounds good.
For anything else music, you supply it yourself.

3:Gameplay
You get 2 meter, power and volume meter, collecting powerup increases either the bar game which in turn either increases your shot power or shot intensity respectively. Mostly you want the intensity though because depending on the music the AI can really prove to be a challenge with them swarming you on all side so breaking through will definitely help more.

At the start of the game you are provided with 3 bombs that clear HALF the map of enemies and not the whole map. If you die a bomb would automatically be used should one be in your possesion.

Perks can be purchase with cash you collect as you destroy craft but only a limited number can be activated at time, they provide in game benefits when you activate them.

As you play along the game sometimes boss can appear, these hulking monstrosity often has a gimmick behind thier sleeves that can prove to be rather challenging if you are terrible with them but killing them often provides money and powerups.

The game will continue till the song ends so if you pick a long and beaty song at hard or above, prepare for a beating.

4:Beat Hazard Ultra DLC
Currently there are 2 version on sale on steam, the normal edition and the one bundled with the DLC Beat Hazard Ultra. Genrally speaking, get the bundle. it includes even more bosses, more enemy types, more perk and generally more of everything that the classic beat hazard doesnt have! Also the effects are shinier in the DLC so yeah, poor retina.

Conclusion.
Great game with friends or by yourself. hopefully drunken friends that way you can play those super weird music as you blast spaceship in tune to the beat. Definitely a thumbs up.

[TIPS]
Cant find a hard enough music? Insane too easy? Go use white noises as the music. Dont say i didnt warn you.

One of my favorite games, quite simply. Combines your own music with amazing visuals and excellent and repeatable gameplay. The Ultra addon somehow made the game even better, once I got used to it, and I would so highly recommend this game to anyone who is a fan of music games.

Awesome game. many adjustments, smooth controls, very satisfying gameplay and best of all, enjoying to play with your own music! Completely focussed on the music, the game can be easy or harder depending on what song you pick. And ofcourse there's a difficulty selection as well

Really just a nice little casual game where you can easily control the feel and mood of each individual play.

A 2D shoot ’em up game set in space. Choosing different tracks from your mp3 collection, you can decide how long you play, how intense the battle is and what is most important, the track you listen to (sorry for repeating that twice, but it’s kinda awesome). There is also some level-up aspect for this game where you gain ranks for score and upgrades for money. And visuals that can be tweaked from “shiny” to “my eyes are bleeding out!” is also a distinguishing feature.

So if you are looking for a shorter or longer decompressing play, you as well can take “Beat Hazard”.
