Critic Reviews for Beat The Game

It's just somewhat obvious that this was meant to be a longer game.

Beat The Game does not feel like a complete game. You scour a tiny area and collect a bunch of unusual sounds for limited mixing purposes. A few well animated cutscenes are not enough reason to experience this extremely brief adventure. Aspiring DJs may be able to create something pleasing to the ear, but others will prefer the sounds of silence.

Beat the Game is the living embodiment of style over substance. A colourful sandbox with wacky characters and quirky music can only take a game so far when it lacks in every other regard. Gameplay consists entirely of finding sounds for a live concert with little payoff due in large part to the static premise and short play time. Cutscenes are well presented when they occur, but the absurdist approach to storytelling is pure nonsense, devoid of any actual meaning. Beat the Game fails as a video game, as a work of art, and as a demonstration of what can be done in the medium. It's little more than a glorified tech demo for a far better game.

If Tim Burton decided to make a music game, this would be it. Prepare yourself for a trippy and introspective adventure.

"Beat the Game is a very short-lived, artistically driven music adventure. While there isn't much in terms of length, the game drives unique gameplay with creative artistic design"
