The sequel to the very fun (yet, very punishing
) Bit.Trip: Beat
has been revealed in Bit.Trip: Core, GameSpot reports
. If you thought it was tough keeping track of rogue pixels assaulting you from one direction, then you're going to have an even tougher time with Core
, as the player must now defend against attacking pixels from four different directions
Another big change comes in the controls department. The first game featured motion-based controls, but in Core
you're stuck in the middle of the screen, pushing directions on the d-pad to shine a beam of light toward rushing pixels. It's essentially the same type of gameplay, combining rhythm and shmup elements, so if you liked Bit.Trip: Beat
, then you'll likely find value in this. The game also adds a progress meter showing you how far you've made it into a stage, as well as a screen clearing ability that will hopefully ease the experience up a bit.
is due for release on WiiWare sometime this summer.
