This is a indie game where you run and go along the rythm of a song.
It's a good indie game in the sense of it's well made and it's challenguing BUT, don't buy thing thing if you're not good at rythm games or precision botton pressing because I spend literally like 14 hours just trying to beat the last 3 levels. It's horrible difficult at least for me.. So Good luck and take that in mind.
But other than that it's quite good. I'm Glad I finish it.

As the name implies BIT.TRIP RUNNER belongs to the genre runner.
Your task: run forward, collect gold and powerups, but dodge the various obstacles of living and nonliving genesis.
BIT.TRIP RUNNER is in 8-bit retro style game. This graphics may cause dizziness and even epilepsy.
BIT.TRIP RUNNER has hardcore gameplay - stuck in any obstacle you come back to the beginning of the level.
Highly recommend to use a gamepad for playing, as well as stock up soothing. :)
For support gamepad you need to purchase additional software, example Pinnacle Game Profiler or Xpadder.

Как понятно из названия BIT.TRIP RUNNER относится к жанру runner.
Ваша задача: бежать вперед, собирать золото и поверапы, да уворачиваться от различных препятствий живого и неживого генеза.
BIT.TRIP RUNNER выполнен в 8-битном ретро стиле. Такая графика может вызвать головокружение и даже приступы эпилепсии.
BIT.TRIP RUNNER обладает хардкорным геймплеем - воткнувшись в любое препятствие вы возвращаетесь на начало уровня.
Очень рекомендую использовать геймпад для прохождения, а также запастись успокоительным. :)
Для поддержки геймпада потребуется приобрести дополнительный софт, например Pinnacle Game Profiler или Xpadder.

I genuinely wanted to like this game: it manages to make the unholy trinity of auto-scrolling/run, reaction times and collectibles into genuinely fun and compelling gameplay. I was thoroughly enjoying the game up until the last level of the first block of stages.

There are no checkpoints in these levels, once you die you go all the way back to the start. While this presents no issue for the standard shorter levels, this becomes something of a hindrance in the aforementioned one. At first you may trip up on early obstacles which doesn't matter too much, but when you find yourself three-quarters of the way through a level and mis-time a button press for the tenth time you start to get frustrated and worn out. You eventually start making stupid mistakes earlier in the level and then give up.

There are two schools of thought about this design choice:

1) I, the writer, am awful at video games and should be removed from the public and placed in a retirement home so that the mean games can no longer make me feel like a useless idiot.

2) Not having checkpoints is a ♥♥♥♥ move that artificially pads out the game time and gates it off to people who either don't possess the time, reactions or patience to endure this ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

Based on your preference you should know whether this game is for you or not.
