What happens when you cross a shoot-em-up with a rhythm game? You get Beat the Beat by Nekki, creators of Shadow Fight 2 and Vector.
You'll be dodging alien gunfire while being bombarded with dub-step beats. The game lets you upgrade your ships to get the firepower you need to defeat the giant bosses. The action in the preview video looks rather frantic and exciting.
Beat the Beat is bringing the beatdown to iOS this summer.
Shadow Fight 2, by Nekki, is the popular sequel to Facebook-based game, Shadow Fight. Nekki reports that Shadow Fight 2 has reached the #1 position on the App Store and has received 35 million downloads to date over various platforms. The game combines RPG elements with martial arts action as you send your ninja against skilled fighters, demon bosses, and eventually try to close the Gate of Shadows.
“We are thrilled to see such an enthusiastic reception for Shadow Fight 2, allowing us to reach 35 million downloads in under four months,” said Nekki Co-founder and CEO Dmitry Terekhin. “Our goal is to always create games that we want to play, and we know we’ve gotten it right when our community of loyal and vocal fans use the power of word-of-mouth to propel our games to the top of the charts.”
Shadow Fight 2 is available for free on the App Store.
