BNR: For most of my life, I’ve loved music. I fondly remember opening up my father’s super-rare limited edition Miles Davis CD collection (sorry for killing the resale value, Dad), and I’ve always had a soft spot for jazz and swing in particular. That’s why Beatbuddy grabbed my attention. Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians is a platformer set in a fantastical underwater kingdom in which you play as a bright blue ethereal being with great taste in music. While I entered the game with plenty of enthusiasm, I have to say that I left it feeling tremendously disappointed- with good reason.
