I've currently got all the top scores ːvː

Feedback welcome.

Don't mess with Beat Hazard 2's new Ultra Beam. Buuuuuurn! I always thought the old one was a bit under powered.

Back in 2010, Beat Hazard riffed on the ‘feed the game music to become levels to play through’ Audiosurf idea to turn MP3s into twin-stick shooter arena battles.

I blasted through a few albums back in the day myself, enjoying the colours and, y’know, the explosions. Creator Steve Hunt has been working on a sequel for a while, and is now starting to talk more about Beat Hazard 2 as he aims to release a beta version this summer. (more…)
