London, UK– Glu Mobile Inc. (Nasdaq: GLUU), a leading global publisher of mobile games, today announced the worldwide availability of the Beat It! App on the App Store. Beat It! is a Glu original title for iPhone and iPod touch where players get to move and groove their way through musical euphoria. Part beat machine, part rhythm (re)creation, players listen to a beat and attempt to lay down the track on their musical game board. The game encompasses a variety of unique instrumentation and musical styles including Electro, Hip-Hop, House and Rock.
Unlike the typical rhythm-matching game mechanic, in Beat It! players use musical sounds creatively to solve beat puzzles and advance through the game. Adding to the fun, Beat It! immerses players into a frenetic animated wonderland. With each completed level, the animated worlds explode with new fantastical energy. In the creative Freestyle Mode, players can tap into their own musical talents. Choose from a variety of instruments and experiment with different beats to develop original grooves.
“Glu is excited to add yet another fun and highly creative game to our original portfolio of apps for iPhone and iPod touch. Beat It! brings a unique game mechanic to the App Store,” said Alex Galvagni, CTO&SVP Global Product Development, Glu.“This head bopping game is a perfect fit for the iPhone and iPod touch, as its intriguing animated pixel art and its engaging gameplay take full advantage of the devices’ revolutionary technology.”
Andrew Podolsky from Slide To Play said,“This is one of the most creative game concepts we've seen in a long time. A music game that's not about tapping out notes that flash onto the screen, Beat It! utilizes a sense that's not used enough by most gamers: listening.”
