Bit.Trip Beat on sale for iPhone and iPad
Namco Networks offers introductory price for colourful arcade hit
To celebrate the release of arcade game Bit.Trip Beat for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, publisher Namco Networks is offering a reduced introductory price.
You can pick up the iPhone and iPod touch version for £1.19/$1.99, whereas the high definition iPad version will cost you slightly more at £2.39/$3.99.
That's a significant drop from the full price, which will go into effect October 8. On that date, the iPhone version will be £2.99/$4.99 and the iPad edition £3.99/$6.99.
If you dig retro-style games, then you're sure to get into the Pong-inspired gameplay of Bit.Trip Beat as described fully in our review. Even if you've played the WiiWare original, three new levels designed specifically for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad offer a reason to revisit.
These levels do require additional in-app purchase, though. Thankfully the asking price is reasonable at £1.19/$1.99. That makes the iPhone version cheaper than the Wii original, even when including in-app purchase of the new levels.
Namco Networks has also put Ace Combat Xi: Skies of Incursion and Pac-Man Championship Edition on sale until October 8.
