Hip Hop Berserker may seem like just your average hack and slash platformer at first glance, but it’s actually much much more than that. It’s an adventure game that is heavily influenced by music (hip hop) and not just for the audio but also for the control scheme. You see, Hip Hop Berserker utilizes the music to time a series of taps and swipes, similar to what you’d find in rhythmic music games. This makes for some rather interesting gameplay and now one that I’ve seen before in an action platformer. If you check out the trailer above, you’ll see what I mean.
Look for Hip Hop Berserker in the App Store when it’s released, January 9th.
