Dame Isolde Minor and her evil Cacophony corporation has Beat City off tune! It's up to you to restore the town back into a rhythm heaven, but is your elite beat enough?

Beat City is a rhythm game filled with multiple music-based mini-games. The evil Dame Isolde Minor and her Cacophony Corporation has robbed Beat City of its rhythm and energy and turned its citizens into a bunch of Depressos. Now it is up to you and your speaker head alien companion to restore Beat City and bring back its vibrant quality.

Tapping to the Beat

Beat City will have you holding the DS sideways, like a book, similar to how Brain Age does it. On the touch screen, you will play mini-games that will have you tapping, sliding and holding your stylus while following visual and musical cues. Headphones are vital!

You will encounter different people and places in Beat City and help them regain their tempo. For exaple, in one mission you will help bees with their honey gathering pace. In another mission, you will help an elephant give out ice cream to kids. There are good tutorials for each mini-game to make sure that the game is not too hard. Also, there are difficulty settings for the mini-games just in case you find it too easy.

Beat This City

The gameplay is very familiar to Elite Beat Agents and Rhythm Heaven, which are also Nintendo DS games. However, the mini-games make it feel quite different and the explosion of color as you succeed in the game is strangely satisfying.

The graphics are simple, but it works well for the game. The music, which is very important to a rhythm game, is catchy and decent. The adventure mode of the game has a good amount of length with lots of unlock and you can always go back and improve on the mini-games or try a harder difficulty. The animation and storyline is again simple, but very fun and appropriate for all ages. This game can definitely keep anyone occupied for awhile!

Price: $19.99
ESRB Rating: E for Everyone
