Ever wonder what a city built on rock and roll
would actually look like? Find out this spring when THQ releases Beat City
for the DS. Beat City
, developed by THQ Wireless developer Universomo
, is a series of 20 rhythm-based minigames in which players "tap, swipe, or hold" to the beat, while the city transforms. Success in minigames will help drive Dame Isolde Minor and her Cacophony Corporation, who presumably dislike music, out of the city.
While Universomo isn't quite as glamorous a developer as the Nintendo R&D1 team that created Rhythm Heaven
, we're delighted to see someone else taking on the idea of rhythm-based minigames. That enthusiasm may diminish when we see actual screens or footage, but why not
enjoy the moment?
Three screens of some "funky mannequins" are now in our gallery.
