App description: Game producer Nekki, creator of hits like Shadow Fight 2 and Vector, presents you Beat Da Beat - a nail-biting action game to the rhythms of Dubstep tracks!

"Beat Da Beat, your new favourite rhythm action dubstep shmup"
- PocketGamer

"Super-exciting, super-cool shooter.
All of the gameplay is generated by the music. It feals really futuristic. A good shmup is much like this. The game comes really alive with its different aesthetics."
- AppSpy

"This is a music album and a complete scroll-shooter at the same time, which works excellently combined and makes a very rare phenomenon happen in the market - a creative product"
- App2Top.ru

"In Beat Da Beat you have not only to depend on skillful flight-action, but also on feeling the rhythm."
- iPlayApps

Everything that happens on the screen - movement, actions, shootings - are based on the musical composition. Can you imagine anything more awesome than dodging a rain of enemy bullets to a mighty Dubstep beat, turning the alien enemies into atoms, while dancing happily to this?
What? Punching the bad guy's face in close combat? No problem!

Wow, slow down! You wanna fight already?
Wait. You didn't think that we will let you go with this metallic lemon?
You have 10 unique spaceships at your service, with each an individual ability.
For some to unlock, you have to sweat pretty much - but it's totally worth it!
Besides this, if you're attached to your old ship already, you can upgrade it to turn it into a real machine of vengeance.

So far, we have:

- A deep written love-story, which will make you cry
- Pixelart style. You don't see this around often!
- Unbelievable musical levels
- 4 difficulty modes
- Great bosses
- Awesome music from awesome musicians
- A dancing guy in the corner. Wow!

Seriously?
You have read until the end and haven't started playing yet? So what if I tell you there are explosions? Lot's of explosions!

That trailer was INCREDIBLE.

Bought but there's something wrong with my internet. $1 with no IAPs.

I agree. In fact, I need detailed impressions for all my $.99 purchases. Won't buy a pack of gum till I hear from five guys who chewed it. Won't give a buck to a homeless guy till I get a background check.

Anyway, bought it, played it for 15 mins -- awesome so far. All bullet hells have a rhythmic component (that's one way to figure out the patterns), but this one does rhythm in a very deliberate way. There are two special abilities: screen-clearing bombs and slo-mo. They are both well implemented. More important, the controls are spot on. Plus, the game has a ton of personally -- and times, pretty darn funny.

Well worth a dollar. Unlike that piece of gum I bought.

My sarcasm detector was tingling, but, sadly, missed it. No offense intended.
