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.

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?
