Beat Hazard Ultra (by Cold Beam Games Ltd) is a frenzied shooter game played to the beat of your own music, featuring many game modes, not to mention the psycho visual screen settings. Opening a game that immediately warns you about “photosensitive seizures” due to the game should logically cause you to second-guess your choice, maybe even deter you from playing the game, but in Beat Hazard Ultra’s case, you’ll want to.
This game’s objective is to enjoy playing to your own music from your iPod, which is how the gameplay is determined — by the speed and beat of each song. Pick a high-tempo fast song and buckle up your seat belt because you’re in for a blasting good time, but if you’re not into quick and furious, then pick a slow song. The coolest thing about this game is the visual effects from the shooting. You can actually set the amount of visual intensity up to 200%, which is visually over-stimulating, but cool nonetheless. Difficulty settings also range from normal (who wants to be normal), to suicidal (maybe not), and there are multiple styles of gameplay, as well as control configurations.
Beat Hazard Ultra has very customizable gameplay that is designed to push your sensory limits while playing this very visually hypnotic shooter game. Now for my complaints, the user interface is a bit confusing making it a little less than obvious on how to start a regular game (not quick play modes). Selecting the game mode is not bad, but then there is the playlist, I bounced back and forth until finally getting into the section where I could choose the style of gameplay, difficulty setting, and visual stimulation setting. Sadly, there is nothing in the instructions to explains this, but I am still very fond of this game anyway. If you’re looking for a wild shooter iPad or iPhone game, then for only a buck you can’t go wrong with Beat Hazard Ultra. Check out all of our iPad app reviews. Crazy Mike
