BIT.TRIP RUNNER is music/rhythm-platformer game developed and published by Gaijin Games.

Unforgiving, Challenging, Frustrating but stupidly addictive are but a few words to sum up this game. BIT.TRIP RUNNER is a retro style game for the modern age, featuring retro graphics, retro music and let’s not forget a retro difficulty that modern (casual) games seem to lack.

If you fail a note you are taken back to the start of the level. This can be a pain on the larger levels that can be several minutes long.

Now the game is hard but thanks to the awesome catchy tunes and the responsive controls you’ll be jumping, sliding, kicking and bouncing again and again to inch closer to the end of each level.

You control CommanderVideo as he tries to reach the end of each 2D platformer level while avoiding the many obstacles in his way.
Obstacles can only be avoided in one way, so in essence every obstruction represents a key to press. Each time you successfully avoid an obstacle, a music note is played. On top of that there are also collectables that if collected play an extra note or add a whole extra layer to the music.

With many levels and addictive gameplay BIT.TRIP RUNNER is one game that will keep your feet tapping for a long time.
