So, I bought the Humble Indie Bundle this year -- something I suggest everyone who likes video games do -- and I got into a game I never thought I would. Bit.Trip Runner is a game reminiscent of Rez and Vib Ribbon: an auto-moving platformer that "generates" music. It's a game that requires memorization and very strict reflexes, neither of which are my forte or even something I thought I would enjoy. But it somehow it all comes together. The controls are incredibly limited; you can jump, spring off platforms, slide and kick through obstacles. Each obstacle has only one way around it. Playing the game becomes something more akin to practicing a musical instrument than beating a stage in Super Mario Bros. The minimalist chiptune/synth tracks it creates are things of beauty. Here's a play-through of the stage I am currently stuck on:

  1. Undeniably consider that which you stated. Your favourite justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to
    take into accout of. I say to you, I definitely get
    irked at the same time as other folks think about worries that they
    plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined
    out the whole thing without having side-effects , people
    could take a signal. Will probably be again to get
    more. Thanks
