BeatBeat rhythm platformer game comes in hot with a launch for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to Janarik Games for their incredible creativity. Available now on Steam with 100% Positive reviews.

BeatBeat isn’t your typical digital title. It’s a unique blend of rhythm and platforming, drawing players into a symphony of well-timed movements and beats. At its core, BeatBeat revolves around an elegant system. While coordinating two types of gameplay with separate hands.

With your left hand, you’ll manage character movements. This isn’t as simple as just left or right; you’ll need to navigate a variety of challenges in BeatBeat. These are due to test your coordination and reflexes. Jumping, running, and other platforming elements are standard fare here. Similar to that of classic platformers we’ve seen over the years.

In BeatBeat you’re in a world that’s bursting with vibrant vaporwave visuals. Such as neon lights, digital art, and retro designs that give off a kind of ’90s internet nostalgia. And while the aesthetics alone are enough to captivate anyone, it’s the beats that truly make this game stand out on Linux.

BeatBeat – Launch Trailer

So here’s the deal in BeatBeat. Your left hand? That’s going to control your movement, making sure you’re dodging obstacles, making leaps, and nailing those landings. Your right hand? It’s all about feeling the groove. You’ll be tapping, holding, and just syncing up with the funky beats playing in the background.

The best part? You’re going to need to flex both the rhythm and platforming muscles in your brain simultaneously. Think of it as a wild dance-off between your brain’s left and right hemispheres. Sure, each part sounds good on its own, but combine them, and you’ve got a symphony of coordination and quick thinking.

In BeatBeat can swap out your keyboard for a gamepad. And speaking of tunes, there’s this stellar 15-song soundtrack. These aren’t just random tracks, they’re the kind of future funk, bleep bloops, and chill lofi hiphop vibes you might have playing in the background while you’re doing… well, anything! If you’re into streaming, these tracks are safe to play on Twitch, so no pesky copyright strikes.

Now, if that’s not good enough, there’s a feature to connect with other players. You can dive into levels crafted by other talented folks or put in your creativity by designing a challenge for others. Hence the Steam Workshop Integration.

Casual Minigame

Oh, and just when you think it’s all about the beats and jumps, there’s a surprise element – a fishing minigame! BeatBeat lets you relax after an intense rhythm-platforming session to fish.

There’s also a dog. And you can pet it. If that doesn’t seal the deal, I don’t know what will. So, dive into the world of BeatBeat and experience beats like never before.

BeatBeat rhythm platformer offers a fresh, engaging, and challenging game. While combining two beloved genres into a seamless blend. Its high-energy, coordination-heavy gameplay might not be for everyone, but for those seeking a unique challenge and a feast for both ears and eyes, it’s worth diving into. Available on Steam for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Priced at $12.74 USD / £10.87 / 12,57€ with the 15% launch discount, until September 19th.
