Sounds like something I'll have to try out soon, maybe buy if I ever get the funds.

Wow, the game isn't half that bad. Judging by the gamplay I've seen so far. It looks pretty fun to play but all the bright colors the screen may make it a bit too difficult too see. But besides that, it appears to be as fun as Audio surfer.

Downloaded the demo and noticed that too. Great game, really fun and shiny, but certain things need to be a little more prevalent. Dying from something hidden behind the massive amounts of bloom is never any fun.

You kinda get used to it, then it's not a problem anymore. But there's probably a bit of room for improvement. No doubt there'll be some solid patches.

Got on Vent, made a mental note out loud that nobody had really donated money to help me pay for the server in a few months, and then mentioned that I had found this really awesome game on Steam for only $10. Five minutes later Beat Hazard was downloading. Life is good.

Found out the odd death cause, it's those tiny, fast, chunks of junk that fly around sometimes. I have a song that starts out by spawning a billion and a half of them.

Lol, I got this game the day it came out on Steam. It was great, I made a thread about it in the Steam forum pointing out the Beat Hazard Forums (which I submitted BTW).

Fun game. I play it with the 360 controller. It was originally an XBL Indie game, so yeah, it was designed with the 360 controller in mind, and works brilliantly with it.

Even did a video of my playing:


Youtube HD (1080p)

Totally worth the price, and it was on sale for a while after it came out. Small DL too, even with the music it was only like 40MB.

3min download here.

I play Keyboard+Mouse style, feels really clean to control. My ship doesn't spin off in a random direction or jostle about like it had a bit too much to drink the night before. That alone makes me happy.

I would have to agree with Tallteen. It seems to be a bit easier to play with an X-Box controller. But that just may be because I've adapted to play the X-Box more easily than on the PC.
