Torrance, CA (November 11th, 2009) – Arc System Works, a leading developer and publisher of interactive entertainment products, is very proud to announce today the release of 0D Beat Drop, an eyeball-shattering fusion of the rhythm and puzzle genres for Xbox LIVE® Arcade video game and entertainment system from Microsoft!
What is Beat Drop?
To get a Beat Drop, just drop like-colored jewels next to one another in time to the music. A meter on the side of your screen shows the rhythm of your music, so keep your eyes on the meter and don’t miss a beat! The more Beat Drops you get, the stronger your attacks will be! With two or three chains of jewels, you’ll send dozens of shadow jewels to your opponent’s field! If you miss a beat, then the power you’ve built up will drop back down to zero, so remember to stay on the beat!
· Musical Multiplayer Mayhem!
Play locally or online in versus in either versus, co-op, or battle royale with up to 4 players!
· Move to your own music!
You can use music that is on your Xbox 360, or on an external USB device, to create your own levels! Analyze the BPM for the music you want to play, and then drop some beats to your favorite song! Although this function only works in single-player mode, there’s still a leaderboard for it! Aim for a high score on your favorite songs!
· Melodic Modes
Take on the computer in a variety of modes such as Planet Quest, Survival, Time Attack, Co-op, and Task modes.
· Flashy fields!
There are 21 types of background and blocks for you to choose from. Pick whichever one you like, and have fun!
0D Beat Drop has been rated “E” for Everyone by the ESRB and is available on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 for 800 Microsoft Points. More information about Arc System Works and 0D Beat Drop can be found at www.arcsystemworks.jp
