Bit.Trip Core


Panic at the techno. The spirit of techno rhythm games will never die. Gaijin Games, the team responsible for Bit.Trip Core has returned with another WiiWare title featuring plenty of...

Retro visuals ; Addictive gameplay ; Simple and fun

Can be extremely tough ; Only three levels

Bit.Trip Core


Where skill magnifies the visual experience

The better you get, the better it looks ; Finger dexterity is pushed to the max ; Learning blip timings is strangely hypnotic

May be too mechanical for some ; Bit of a one-trick pony ; Doesn't reward experimenting

Every hit blip adds a bleep, bloop or wibble to the soundtrack – yet more incentive to hit the notes. Fail to hit blips and the colour drains and the music dies. You can save yourself, but you're doomed without the rhythm. This continues until you...

BIT.TRIP CORE continues the saga that started with Gaijin Games' first release for WiiWare, BIT.TRIP BEAT. BIT.TRIP CORE for Wii definitely takes you on a trip in more ways than ...

BIT.TRIP CORE was the 100th WiiWare title released and clocks in at 600 Wii Points as of this writing. The gameplay style is simple and so are the graphics, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t fun. Having to start over if you mess up after playing for...

Bit.Trip Core


A better example of a rhythm game than Beat, but the challenge might be off-putting to new players.

It's all score based still, and there's multipliers to get and so on, so if you have a competitive streak in you there's something to enjoy as well. Like before, if you start to fail out you'll fill up a meter that changes the screen into a black and...

Bit.Trip Core (WII)


Bit.Trip Core looks and sounds outdated, but it's a far more interesting and stylish evolution of the rhythm genre than the relentless guitar and karaoke sequels.

Addictive rhythm-based gameplay; unique retro visuals and sound

Steep difficulty won't appeal to all players; multiplayer mode clashes with the rhythm gameplay

Expert review by:



Rhythm games and I usually get along. Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero/Rock Band, you name it, I can usually handle it.

You'll feel the rhythm... of psychedelic frustration.

Bit.Trip Core Review


Trippy to the core.

Hectic action; Great presentation; Much improved sequel in all areas, but

Becomes too difficult too quickly; No leaderboards to share your prowess online; No way to record your tunes

Bit.Trip Core


We really liked Bit.Trip Beat. Combining old-school gameplay with an awesomely neo-retro aesthetic and just plain awe-inspiring level design, this first installment of Gaijin Games' new WiiWare s...

Bit.Trip Core


The psychedelic sequel to Bit.Trip Beat improves upon its predecessor and has an entirely different sort of rhythm shooter action.

Pleasing retro aesthetic ; Striving for the next high score is fun and addictive ; Challenging but rewarding gameplay

Still no online leaderboards ; Still short at only three levels

IGN: Bit.Trip Core


If you were a fan of Bit.Trip: Beat, Core is another awesome package that'll last you a few good hours for a slim 600 point price. The music is a bit too predictable this time around, still using standard 4:4 beats and little more than quarter,...

Once again with feeling, Commander.
