Bitstream is the complete opposite of [other game]. First of all there’s a lot of depth to the game. Travelling straight will gradually increase your speed so winning races becomes less about reactions and more about finding the fastest route from start to finish. There are 16 tracks split into 4 tournaments with 8 racers in each. A load of flare effects on the lines and musical cues every time you move makes the game a delight to look at
and listen to as well.
The guys at IndiGameBlog have just put up a glowing review of BitStream.
"The sound design is excellent and the multiplayer is great fun."
"with a few friends this is one of the best multiplayer games on Indie Games."
The reviews have started coming in thick and fast now!
"...is a quality title that expands on the original game, and is only 400MSP"
"Great Dotstream-like game with music that reacts to your movements"
"Holy pixels, BitStream is amazing! Anyone who enjoyed or heard of Dotstream should check out this Indie Game"
More as we get 'em!
