Hyper Light Drifter dev debuts Scrabble/DDR hybrid Alphbeats


Hyper Light Drifter developer Teddy Diefenbach has launched Alphabeats, a stylish word puzzler for iOS featuring Dance Dance Revolution-styled rhythm gameplay.

In Alphabeats, players slide a paddle across the bottom of the screen that grows in size as it catches falling letters. Captured letters can be strung together to form words, which translate to points tallied at the end of each track. Fez composer Disasterpeace and Threes' Big Giant Circles headline Alphabeat's electronic soundtrack, with additional songs available via in-app purchases.

Alphabeat is priced at $1.99.
