When Joey and Gina arrive in the musically starved town that outlawed groovy tunes, a chance encounter with the music hating tyrannical ruler of the town (and local butcher) sends them flying. Now lost in the wilderness outside town, Joey and Gina have made it their mission to return to Accapella and put an end to The Butcher’s reign of silence. To make it back they’ll need to earn the trust and aid of the zany locals by helping them with all manner of chores and tasks. Armed only with the power of music and rhythm, Joey and Gina are in for the adventure of a lifetime!
BeatBlasters III is a combination action-platformer and rhythm game set in a strange world filled with fantastical, original, creatures. Joey and Gina each share 3 music powered abilities: An attack power, a shield, and a pair of rocket boots. Using these abilities consumes energy, which can be regained by taking a moment to tap your fingers to the groovy beat. While recharging Joey and Gina are pretty much helpless, and so BeatBlasters III, becomes as much about managing the timing of recharges as it does the accuracy of your rhythm and the jumping, shooting, and protecting that each level entails. Additionally Joey and Gina each have a completely unique super power and soundtrack, making each character a different auditory and gameplay experience. Master each level to earn star power, which can be used to modify the attacks of both characters, and then take on Insane Mode for the ultimate in rhythm challenge.
