Exploration Focused Puzzle Game Beatbuddy Set to Make Transition from PC to iOS this September

Posted by Jennifer Allen on July 28th, 2014

Set for release on the App Store in September is Beatbuddy, previously a success story for the PC, Mac, and Linux.

Beatbuddy combines puzzle solving, enemy vanquishing, and plenty of exploration. Even better, it offers a fascinating story contributed to by Rhianna Pratchett of Tomb Raider and Mirror's Edge fame. There'll be six hand-drawn worlds to explore, each offering their own original soundtrack.

That's not all, though! Beatbuddy is also set to allow you to buy the game's tracks from iTunes without leaving the game. A feature that hasn't been available in a game for iOS before.

Developer, THREAKS, promise that there will be numerous free updates post-launch, ensuring that Beatbuddy sounds pretty cool to us.

Check out the gameplay trailer below for a sneak peek at what to expect, come September.
