Pixels for Breakfast writes: Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians is a musically-influenced visual splendour that puts the player in an underwater world filled with musical cues and smooth art designs. Upon first playing the game at PAX Aus back in July I was excited for what this game may involve, as it featured beautiful visuals, interesting challenges and incredibly catchy tunes. One of the first things players will notice is that listening to the soundtrack is key to succeeding in Beatbuddy, as enemies and traps follow the rhythmic pattern of the music. Even characters’ names are reminiscent of musical terminology. However, for all of the aspects of the aesthetics that captivates the player’s attention, unfortunately the stage design eventually becomes a bit stale and lengthy that getting towards the end will often feel like a chore.
