Beat Souls

Beat Souls

Take control of a shrine maiden and dodge noise while collecting souls in this action-packed game by Zoo Corporation. The rhythm elements are not as pronounced as in other titles, but Beat Souls still features a selection of great tunes and over-the-top visuals to accompany the frantic action. The 45 stages that can be played on Normal or Hard difficulty will keep players challenged for a while, and unlocking additional characters or taking on the endless Hell Mode adds some longevity.

Gameplay: Not a “pure” rhythm game, but still action-packed and very enjoyable.

Graphics: Very colorful and over the top, but can be toned down a bit.

Sound: Lots of catchy tracks across different genres

Bring peace to the world of music by shooting down angry beats in Beats of Fury by Bubble Head Games. Beats of Fury combines rhythm game and bullet hell shooter elements for a fast, frantic, and very addictive experience. Casual players are not left out in the cold either, as the game features a no aiming mode for an easier experience. Beats of Fury is currently on Steam Early Access, where a recent update added the final level. Check out this first look video to see the game mechanics in action

Thumper

Thumper

Thumper is a rhythm-action game unlike any other and will test players’ reflexes to the maximum. It features a unique metallic-chrome style for the visuals, which even without the disturbing bosses, makes for a slightly unsettling playing experience. This is further amplified by the aggressive music and unforgiving speed of the game. There’s no doubt that Thumper is a very challenging game, but it always draws you back in with the feeling that you can do slightly better with each try and finally conquer that one section that is preventing you from progressing.

Gameplay: Starts out relatively simple, but the speed and challenge ramps up very quickly.

Graphics: The surgically clean metallic look of the game is actually rather unsettling.

Sound: Not exactly catchy, but the music and sound effects fit the game perfectly

Muse Dash X GrooveCoaster Collaboration Features New Character And More

Aaero

Aaero

Aaero is a rhythm shooter that sees players flying through stylized environments while blasting enemies to the beat of electronic music. It is a very challenging and unforgiving game, but also very addictive, and depending on your musical taste has a great soundtrack. The lack of support for things like Steam Workshop and custom songs limits the replay value a bit, but mastering all the songs should keep most players busy for ages.

Gameplay: Challenging, intense, and very addictive.

Graphics: Beautiful and varied.

Sound: Features a great electronic music soundtrack

Double Kick Heroes

Double Kick Heroes

Double Kick Heroes is a unique blend of rhythm action and shooting wrapped up in beautiful pixel art and a heavy metal soundtrack. The game is challenging, especially on the higher difficulty settings and the music is good enough to put a smile on the face of any metalhead. However, it’s a pity that doing well requires players to watch the rhythm bar like a hawk and thereby miss out on all the pixel art action. Nevertheless, this is a fun game with lots of modes to keep players coming back for more.

Gameplay: An interesting new take on the rhythm action genre.

Graphics: Lovely pixel art visuals with plenty of great enemy designs.

Sound: If you love metal you’ll love the soundtrack
