This one is so cool. It's an excellent game!
It's a platformer, yes, but it still succeeds in being original. The game is beautiful to look at - escpecially the scenery - but it's the music that makes it such a fun game. The music is not only great, it is fully integrated in the game play. Beatbuddy needs to flow with the music, with the beat, in order to pass obstacles and beatread more enemies (get it? get it? "beat" enemies? erm...).
Fun detail, in Beatbuddy's world, the language is beatbox... Haha. :)

Beatbuddy's commitment to the melding, rhythm, music and gameplay is fantastic, and for the most part it gets it done very well. The art style is beautiful; lush diverse environments with deep colour palettes and and buttery smooth animation that brings everything to life.
The story is simple in the best way, with colourful and lively characters each with their own distinctread more voice (it becomes even more evident in the game!) The music itself is very addictive, and so well crafted and divided between different elements of the gameplay you find yourself getting into the swing of things without even noticing.
Gameplay-wise, the puzzle platformer's not too challenging, but the steady layering of new mechanics, enemies and obstacles keeps things interesting throughout the run. My only big fault with the game is at times the controls can be frustrating, which can really shock you out of the experience.
Outside of this however, Beatbuddy will keep lovers of 2D puzzle platformers and music well entertained over its run. A must play IMO

Some older cartoons lets the music play the main part, while the animation has been designed to match it. Examples are Disneys SILLY SYMPHONIES and GOOFY GOAT ANTICS (1933). They had some of the same qualites as does BEATBUDDY: the way visuals and rythm plays together creates a flow that few other games can match. This is one of the better games in the casual genre.
