Gameplay

Beatstar Review
Hit the tiles in time with the music!

The aim of Beatstar is to tap the tiles in time with the music. The idea is to hit them in the perfect box every time but if you don’t, don’t worry, you’ll still get points. However, if you completely miss a tile, the level will end and you can only continue by spending gems.

At the beginning of the game, you have to pick between 4 songs for your tutorial:

  • Wake Me Up – Avicii 
  • No tears left to cry – Ariana Grande
  • All the Small Things – Blink-182
  • Ransom – Little Tecca

I went for No tears left to cry – Ariana Grande and found it to be a little too easy for a tutorial, but it’s understandable why that is.

After the tutorial you get to pick between 6 more songs:

  • death bed – Powfu
  • Happier – Marshmello
  • Hey Ya! – OutKast
  • Say So – Doja Cat 
  • Someone You Loved – Lewis Capaldi 
  • The Middle – Jimmy Eat World 

Through completing songs, you can earn new ones.

Graphics

Beatstar Review
The graphics aren’t the worst!

I don’t have anything against the graphics and feel like they fit in well with the game. They’re no different from any other rhythm game I’ve played before.

Music & Sounds

The audio is pretty self-explanatory for this game: it’s whatever song you pick. They have a good selection of songs from big hits to slightly lesser-known songs. It’s a great mix!

Controls

Beatstar Review
Tap to control!

The controls are what I didn’t really like. Although it’s essentially just tapping, I found it harder to be in time compared to other rhythm games. The tiles are far too big so it’s a little more complicated to get a perfect hit!

The Verdict

Beatstar Review
What did you think?!

Overall, Beatstar isn’t the best rhythm game I’ve ever played before but it definitely wins in terms of songs! The song selection was amazing and I was having a little dance while playing.
