"It's rare to find a game that does something so original so well, with every element of gameplay and design falling into place. Simogo has pulled it off with Beat Sneak Bandit. In my books it's a must buy, and such a shame it would be to miss out." - TouchArcade
"It's impossible not to fall in love with this funky little number." - Videogamer.com

"Quick to get into but devilish in the detail, Beat Sneak Bandit makes all the right noises, and in what's already a strong year for mobile gaming, this is the best iPhone game I've played." - Eurogamer
"Every now and again though, a game comes along for iOS that knocks you for six, and re-ignites your passion for not just iOS gaming, but gaming in general. Well, Beat Sneak Bandit is one such game." - Touchgen
"It's an unlikely mix for sure, but Beat Sneak Bandit's smart blend of puzzling and beat-matching proves to be an ingeniously crafted delight." - Pocketgamer

"A true work of art, in so many ways. It's smart. It's challenging. It's gorgeous. But most importantly, it's fun - dizzying, dreamy, and delightful fun." - Gamezebo
Most brilliant iOS game I've ever seen.
To the critics: Really?
To people wondering if they should buy the game: Do! If you like puzzle games (and I do), then this is THE game for you. It's so innovative while retaining simplicity—the epitome of genius in game design. At first I was a little annoyed by the game's one button, but it's so obvious now that this is the superior choice for this puzzle game. I've owned an iPod touch for a few years, along with some top-selling iOS games, and literally, this is the first iOS game I've ever played all the way through; I got bored with the others too quick—including number-one sellers! Even though I just beat this game, I'll probably start over again tomorrow. It definitely has replay value. I highly recommend it! (I even posted on FB about it, which I NEVER do.)
To the developers: Outstanding game! I was a little nervous about the $2.99 price, having only seen one video and the GDC prize, but my impulse buy was well rewarded. You guys definitely deserve it. Huge congrats, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with in the future!
Clever and fulfilling genre mixture
It's pretty amazing that they've mashed up stealth, rhythm, and puzzle into a single game. And it's even more amazing that it actually works really well and is a lot of fun. It's simply one of the most creative games I've seen on iOS so far. The controls are very simple (it's a one-button-style game) but there's a good amount of depth in how you use the movement to your advantage while navigating the levels. The puzzles are great, and there are plenty of head-scratchers that will keep you guessing. I don't find this game frustrating at all, because the rules are very simple and the gameplay runs perfectly. Once you've got that down, it's pure puzzle solving, which requires timing, direction, and placement in a combination that's hard to find elsewhere. It's a beautifully crafted and designed experience. The sound, a vital component of the game, is also very well produced and engaging. This is an A+ title that everyone should try. Well worth the asking price. I'm looking forward to expansions/sequels already.
One of the most ingenious little games.
I have to give a five star for a game with just ingenuity in its design, and a solid performer. This ranks up with Tiny Wings as the two most ingenious game designs that offer so much gameplay with only one finger touching the screen to pull it off.
Level design is great. Also nice to see how the timing of traps and all not only work into broadening the things you can accomplish with the simple mechanic, but they actually feed into the background music. That means, getting into the groove is needed to truly make solving the puzzles feel like a breeze. You start to lock onto what trap, door, etc. is associated with what instrument it is in the song.
Wouldn't mind seeing a sequel or more of this in the future.
