Default Beat Runner - NEW rhythm based action game



We are happy to announce that our latest iOS game, Beat Runner is now available in the App store:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/beat-runner/id585698701?ls=1&mt=8

Beat Runner is an exciting rhythm based, action packed game.
With its strong beat and rhythmic melody, it gives you a fantastic experience.

Jump to the rhythm, avoid obstacles, try to play through the entire song.
The beat tells you when to jump. Trust the music.

The game has simple one touch control yet addictive gameplay and it is suitable for both experienced and new players.
Easy to play, hard to master. Some might say it cannot be completely beaten. Especially on Extreme mode. Patience and practice will be your friends.

The levels (music tracks) are split into short parts. Practice on the individual parts. When you have mastered the individual parts then comes the FINALE (the full song) with all parts together.

18 amazing stages ( including 3 extreme and challenging "Finale" levels) with increasing difficulty and speed.
At the "Finale" levels you can choose between Extreme (no extra life) and Normal mode (3 lives).

Packed with beautiful visual effects and amazing music tracks.

The game rewards you with stars. Try to beat each level in one attempt and collect 3 stars. You can improve your attempt number by restarting the levels.

The flow of the game is perfectly in sync with the music's rhythm and melody.
If you like music, rhythm and addictive runner games, you have it all in Beat Runner, and more...

Try it, beat it and enjoy it!

I'm intrigued by this game, but concerned that it seems to contain the equivalent of three songs. Will more be added in the future?

Hi Mr. Grizzly,

Yes there are 3 main music tracks. But 18 stages. The full song is cut into shorts parts. The 15 short parts basically sound as different music tracks because they are individual sections of the full songs. First you have to complete and unlock the individual parts and then advance to the finale. Basically in the individual parts you are training for the Finale. The full long songs are played in the 3 FINALES. The game starts easy and progressively gets harder.
As you play the game it feels great in your heart and mind. Our testers played for days or weeks. It's fun, entertaining and addictive. You will always come back for more. It has a great replayable value as well, as you want to hear and play through the songs again and again.

We are already working on new levels with new music tracks. It will be added in future updates.

Thanks for looking.

Develop a music rhythm game where the levels are dynamically generated by user selected tracks from ones own ipod music library and than I will buy it.

Hi morgantj,

Beat Runner was in development for more than a year. We were planning it to be a dynamically generated level system. But when we hand built our first level realized that a robotic-generated level is never a match to a human creativity. Our levels are custom built not just the beat but to the flow of the music. Special effects and the route of the levels are completely in sync with the flow of the music. When you play the game correctly with sync to the music it feels awesome. When the player is off the beat, he/she dies quickly and the level starts over instantly. We need the human touch.

Hope our explanation helps a little.

Thanks for looking and for the feedback,

RK Games team.

There is one iAP in it (for unlocking all levels) and we are planning to add new levels and songs in the future updates.

The main full songs are split into short parts. The 15 parts basically sound as different music tracks because they are individual sections of the full songs.

Thanks for the reply. I would assume you can unlock the levels manually?

I just noticed, by the way, that this is iPhone only. Any plan for an iPad version?
