Bit.Trip Beat developer Gaijin Games has told Pocket Gamer it hopes to bring the rest of its retro, chip-tune rhythm-action games to iPhone and iPad.

The developer already has four games out on Nintendo’s WiiWare, and has since ported the first game, Bit.Trip Beat, to PC, Mac and iOS.

“We will hopefully be bringing the rest of the series to the iOS devices,” studio CEO Alex Neuse told us. “Mind you, nothing is set in stone yet, but we definitely hope to.”

In Bit.Trip Core, you fire laser beams out of a 'plus' symbol in the middle of the screen, blasting patterns of blocks. The game’s vintage graphics and music changes depending on how well you’re doing. In Bit.Trip Void, you’re a circle avoiding increasingly-challenging waves of evil white dots.

Bit.Trip Runner is more like Canabalt: Commander Video is constantly running, and you simply make him jump, slide, and kick to avoid various obstacles, all to the beat of catchy backdrop tunes. Special guest band Anamanaguchi provides the menu music. Finally, Bit.Trip Fate is a rhythm-based space shooter, with Commander Video.

The team has also announced the sixth and final game in the series: Bit.Trip Flux. Nothing has been revealed about the game yet.

“As for Windows Phone 7 and Android, I'm not too sure.” Neuse said. “Maybe.”
