"It's rare to find a game that does something so original so well, with every element of gameplay and design falling into place. Simogo has pulled it off with Beat Sneak Bandit. In my books it's a must buy, and such a shame it would be to miss out." - TouchArcade

"It's impossible not to fall in love with this funky little number." - Videogamer.com

"Beat Sneak Bandit is polished, challenging, wholly original and a heck of a lot of fun. Its a great example of how presentation, control and design can come together to create a cohesive and extremely fun package. Dont miss it!" - IGN

"Quick to get into but devilish in the detail, Beat Sneak Bandit makes all the right noises, and in what's already a strong year for mobile gaming, this is the best iPhone game I've played." - Eurogamer

"Every now and again though, a game comes along for iOS that knocks you for six, and re-ignites your passion for not just iOS gaming, but gaming in general. Well, Beat Sneak Bandit is one such game." - Touchgen

"It's an unlikely mix for sure, but Beat Sneak Bandit's smart blend of puzzling and beat-matching proves to be an ingeniously crafted delight." - Pocketgamer

"You'll be hard pressed to put this game down until you've 'clocked' it entirely - a must have for all iPhone gamers." - Appspy

"A true work of art, in so many ways. It's smart. It's challenging. It's gorgeous. But most importantly, it's fun - dizzying, dreamy, and delightful fun." - Gamezebo

I count 69! 68 if you don't count the finale, which I might add, was a definite increase in difficulty, but I got it

Yup, 69 levels in all. 40 normal stages, 16 shadow stages, 12 remix stages and 1 boss/finale.

The boss level was a pleasant increase in difficulty. After trying it for a few times, I slowed myself down and took the time to observe a couple times before attempting the section.

Has anyone gotten the "Beat Freak Bandit" achievement? It's the one for collecting all the small clocks.

I completed the game (including the remix levels) with all clocks in each (all the levels also show as starred) but this achievement did not unlock for me.

Also, anyone have any tips for beating the finale under 150 seconds?

Some say pleasant, others say frustrating... I found the game relatively easy, have four-clocked all the levels, but I'm totally stuck in the finale. Which wouldn't be that bad because I don't really care about officially finishing the game but I want to play the remix levels

I've noticed that Sanuku isn't very good at rhythm games.

Don't know if anyone else mentioned it so far, but this game brings a whole new meaning to "clocking" a game. :P

Need proofreading, editing or writing done for your game?

Game Impressions

I am rhythmically challenged, but I am still finding this fun and at about the right level of difficulty. I am partway through chapter 2. I like this much better then Bumpy Road.the graphics are great and the music is catchy. 5 of 5 stars!
