After three hours of screaming at my computer, I finally beat the first boss, at which point I jumped out my chair and danced around my house... but then I realized that there were still two more bosses.......

TURN V-SYNC off. simply doesn't do any good for the game other than messing up your timing that you'll find was spot on when you turn it off.

Its the LAWNMOWER MAN virtual world in 8 bit !!!
A great improvement over the BIT.TRIP.BEAT. franchise! If you had to only choose one bit.trip. series, go with Runner.
Here's why.
Difficult but not sadistic.
Faster interface. Get in and play, and quit. While it's still an 8 bit mess, at least you don't have that silly delay waiting for the game to bounce your choice off your paddle...

Achievements that can actually be 100%'d.
(however there are A+ perfect related ones so prepare yourself..)
So much more user imput. With bit.trip.beat. you adjust your paddle with UP or DOWN. that's it. Got real boring real fast. Here you gotta dodge and it requires several buttons. Therefore the gameplay, is much more satisfying compared to .beat

Tough to perfect, very very tough. Several achievements are pretty trying but i WILL 100 percent this game legit one day!

The beautiful graphics and soundtrack really make this a worthwhile game to add to your library even if the game can get annoyingly hard by silly mistakes it can work well in short bursts but will forever grab you with that "one more time" factor. Again unfortunately the game is let down by a lack of content.
