The Jolly Holiday Update has arrived!

​A new update for ​Spin the Beat​ is here, just (barely) in time for Christmas!

The Jolly Holiday Update introduces a brand-new stage, titled "Festive." This stage features a calming holiday setting with six Christmas-centric scenes, one on each side of the cube. Enjoy the soothing scenery, but don't get too comfortable - the set pieces on the stage can easily fling you into the abyss if you aren't paying attention!

Enjoy the Festive stage, and have a very happy holiday season and New Year, which ever days you may or may not celebrate!

The Spooky Update is Live!

It's the spookiest day of the year, and Spin the Beat's Spooky Update has arrived just in time!

This update brings with it a brand-new stage full of tricks and treats. The player avatars from the Neon stage have donned their Halloween costumes and been spirited away to an eerie cemetery amidst mysterious towers, where just about anything can happen! Try not to get too spooked...

Features of the new "Spooky" stage:

- Watch out for the headstones as the stage spins - they might just catch you off-guard and fling you to your doom!

- Both the players and enemies have received a total Halloween makeover.

- Unique music in the ever-bizarre time signature of 5/4.

- No indication whatsoever of which way the stage is about to turn - it's always a surprise!

- A special "Trick-Or-Treat" event that may occur in place of regular events. During this event, treat bags will spawn on the stage. Pick one up and you might get a treat ... or a nasty trick! How will you know which you'll get? The only way to find out is to pick it up...
--- As this event involves power-ups, it will not occur if you turn off power-ups on the game menu.

As always, please report any unexpected issues you encounter. Happy Halloween!

About This Game

Jump-n-dodge couch-multiplayer arcade action to the beat of the music!


Spin the Beat is a game designed to bring friends together for some good-old-fashioned couch-multiplayer fun. With simple controls and simple objectives, it's a game that anyone can pick up and play.

You and up to three friends are dropped into a small environment which quickly comes to life in bright colors and intense sounds as simple but devious enemies do everything in their power to knock you and your friends off the edge. You can work together to keep the game going for as long as possible … or knock each other around to try to earn the highest score! Rack up points by surviving consecutive waves, defeating enemies, and defeating each other. Watch out for sudden events that can mix up gameplay, including power-ups and wild changes in the world's behavior!

Spin the Beat can be played with 1 to 4 simultaneous players on a single screen.



- Rapid-fire gameplay that keeps you guessing
- Random events which mix up gameplay as soon as you think you've seen every trick the world can throw your way
- One simple objective: Don't fall off!
- Six color-coded enemies with wildly varying behaviors, but who share the common goal of knocking you off the tiny world
- Simple, intuitive controls that make it easy to pick up and play
- Play how you want - go for points in Party Mode or compete to be the last one standing in Survival Mode
- Semi-procedural music – no two play sessions will have exactly the same soundtrack!
- Multiple environments, each with their own distinct visual style, soundscape, and gameplay twists
