    Do you like games that shame your reflexes? If so, this Bit.Trip title may be just what you're looking for!

    Bit.Trip RUNNER seems to be a pretty standard platformer at first glance. You run, you jump over things, you slide under other things, and generally avoid all the ways the environment is trying to jac...

    Rated on June 12, 2010 by Pierst179

    Ever since the early days of the platforming genre, those games – with the addition of winding down timers - have always been pushing players to try their best in going as fast as possible through sta...

    The most recent entry in the Bit.Trip series is difficult, frustrating and unforgiving; it is also brilliant

    Rated on July 08, 2010 by manticora_2k

    Mixing platforming and rhythm to create a strange hybrid genre, Bit.Trip Runner, like its predecessors is heavily centered around its music. Players take control of Commander Video as he frantically c...

    No one can stop Mr. Video!

    Rated on October 03, 2010 by c_rakestraw

    I'll be honest with ya: I don't understand much of what's going on in Bit.Trip Runner. I have no idea why CommanderVideo (the series protagonist) is running or where he's going; I don't know why he ha...

    Bit.Trip Runner will please old school gamers while at the same time creating a unique rhythm game.

    Rated on November 01, 2010 by IslandBros15

    Bit.Trip Runner was an interesting game for me to play. It combines elements of a 2D platformer while at the same time creating a rhythm game. You play as CommanderVideo. There is no story at all ...

    Platforming bliss!

    Rated on March 09, 2011 by Lord_Larsa

    Great game! Even though the music isn't really my cup of tea, I found the whole experience to be completely addictive. Once you've started a level it's practically impossible to stop until you've beat...
