What is even happening in this Beat Bros video?


8:00 AM on 03.23.2014



I have watched the video above a couple of times now, but I still do not think I could describe Beat Bros accurately. It looks like developer Ultimate Walrus (of #Snake2 infamy) started making a rhythm-based Bomberman clone, but then went off the deep end somewhere between floating doughnuts and giant snakes. Bonus points for the playable moai head statue.

It actually reminds me most of Spelunky's multiplayer mode, in that things happen too quickly to react, and everybody dies within seconds. I get the feeling the "Nobody Wins" message shows up more often than not.

Beat Bros is available now for PC and Ouya.

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
