Bit. Trip Runner
How challenging do you prefer your games to be? If you answered “maddeningly challenging to the point that I want to smash my controller and hunt down the families of the developers,” then Bit.Trip Runner is the game for you. Bit.Trip Runner is an on-rails platformer, meaning the world automatically scrolls by at a rapid pace and you have to jump over, slide under, and crash through the many, many obstacles that come flying at you.
It’s similar to the popular iPhone game Canabalt, except here the levels aren’t randomly generated and you can make your way through each stage by memorizing patterns. This is the fourth Bit.Trip game to arrive on WiiWare and while it shares some similarities with the others like its heavy focus on music, Runner is its own beast. I appreciate the presentation more than the previous Bit.Trips, but ultimately this one didn’t end up being as fun.
