Beats Slider for PlayStation Mobile

It seems like only last month we were shouting about Velocity (it was), and yet now we’ve got some new things to be excited about!

We’ve been hard at work coming up with more simple, elegant and clever ideas, and crafting them into fun and addictive games!

Soon they’ll be hitting the shiny new PlayStation Mobile platform, playable on all PlayStation Certified devices, like your trusty Xperia or HTC smartphone and even PlayStation Vita!

The first of these games is called Beats Slider, and it’s called that because you slide beats around.

It’s simple, rather elegant, and pretty clever too…

MIDI Midas

Each block of the sliding puzzle represents MIDI data, which is basically musical notation that computers can read 🙂

MIDI data can be used to play back ANY instrument, synthesizer, drum loop or whatever you throw at it, just by changing the instruments or samples that are triggered by it.

Musical Magic

So what we’ve done is allow the player to push a drum loop MIDI pattern into a synthesizer slot, or a melody pattern into a bassline track, and every combination you could possibly think of within the limits of each level.

Beats Slider Remix Mode

It was quite the brain teaser to write music that can be rearranged in this way whilst still sounding good, but we managed it! 🙂

Slide Master

What we’re also doing is TEACHING people how to solve those blasted slider puzzles. Some people are just able to solve them, but people like you (and me) are often left frowning with frustration!

No more.

If you play Beats Slider, you will learn how to solve EVERY slider puzzle that will ever be made, whilst also listening to catchy music like this:

    Hey, thanks for trying it!

    Did you check the instructions for the tip about completing the top row first, then the first column, and then doing it again within the smaller area inside those?

      Ouch, that’s no good. Sorry about that. We’ve never seen that behaviour. Did it happen more than once?
