Good times, great chiptunes, retro style
This is a great game - especially at the sale price. One thing special to mention: The multiplayer is a great way to make progress through the harder sections too.

The beats in this game are dope and the gameplay is on point. Love the touch controls but the accelerometer is smooth too. Hoping they bring the next one in the series to iPhone as well. Wasn't a bit trip fan before, but now i'm addicted.

This game is addicting; I can't put it down. It's a better version of pong. I'm a fan!

This game gets so frickin cool. I have yet to see full 3d look so good on the iPhone. The music is really creative how it's layered and there are 3 main songs, but they each change per mode erupting into a crescendo that fits the game play very well. Level 3 looks INSANE I played for over an hour before I got to the boss but it was worth it, totally retro. I did find that playing this game with my headphones on was a big help and I some stages the beats didn't line up but them seemed to self correct and that is my only complaint with the game. This only happened once or twice so it was not really a big deal to me. This is not a game for weaklings, wimps or complainers. It was a tad challanging not like Mega Man challanging but still a challange. I sailed through the first two levels but the 3rd was tough. I found myself spending a lot of time going back for a high score in game center on level 2. Reading some of these other comments: Did any other the negative reviewers play this game for more than a few minutes? There are 3 main songs and they change as you get better. There are 3 levels but they are in sections so it feels like 30 lvls. All in all this was a lot of game for my money and I want more!

Not Pong
Seriously? Pong? You other reviewers compare this to Pong? The game is nothing like Pong or Breakout or any other paddle game, because you nearly never bounce anything in the game. This is a brilliant execution of retro styling with modern gameplay. The idea of using music as both the reference of what to do and the motivator to do it well is pure perfection. If you listen as much as watch, you always know what to do. And I was surprised at how much I wanted to keep the beat perfect to get the cooler music tracks. Super interesting and fun. Controls were a tough for me to figure out first. I kept tilting side to side until I figured out it was backwards and forwards. But it did force me to play in the touch mode at first and I see benefits in both. But I have to say that the tilt control won me over. One of the best implementations of tilt control I've seen yet. My one complaint, though, are the length of the stages and lack of better practice modes. There's a point in the second stage (Descent) that comes after 10 minutes of game play that keeps tripping me up. I would love to break apart stages and practice problem areas instead of needing to go through 10 minutes of gameplay to repeatedly fail. This may be a bit of whining on my part (since old school games were always like this), but if the goal is to sell more level packs, it might be worth Namco considering helping us a little more to master the packs that come with the game. BTW, no problem with the pricing at $1.99 (during the 50% off sale) or $4.99. The game is clearly done at a professional caliber.
