Bit.Trip Presents...Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien

 

Bit.Trip Presents… Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, also know simply as Bit.Trip Runner 2, is the newest instalment in Gaijin Game’s excellent Bit.Trip series.

On the surface, the concept of Bit.Trip Runner 2 may seem simple enough; avoid the obstacles  get as much gold as you can, and reach the end of the level. But dig a little deeper, and Bit.Trip Runner 2 becomes a magical, rhythmic adventure. All the gold and power-up pick ups are placed to fit within the music, as are the enemies and jumps. To master the levels, you must be as one with the soundtrack of the game.

If you’ve ever played the other Bit.Trip games, you’ll notice a radical change in visual style in Bit.Trip Runner 2. There are still throwbacks to it’s retro heritage, but Runner 2 is now a visual spectacle, as well as an audio one.

  • Available on: PC, PS3, X-Box 360, Wii U
  • Play it if you like: The rest of the Bit.Trip series, tight-controls, going for high-scores, a fresh spin on a popular indie series
  • Get it from: Steam (PC), eShop (Wii U), XBLA (X-Box 360) PSN (PS3)

The Bit.Trip series is one of my personal favourites  and Runner 2 just show’s the love that the guys at Gaijin put into their games. So, go and pick it up.
