    Apple has made electronic music-driven infinite jumper game Beat Stomper its Free App of the Week on the App Store. Usually $2, this trippy little game has been rated at least four stars by over 650 gamers for its frenetic jump-and-hold mechanic, combined with a rousing soundtrack which adapts to the action unfolding on the screen.

    Neon-drenched graphics and rapidly strobing particle effects are par for the course in this vertical high score chaser. Gamers control a little square that jumps high into the air with a tap on the screen. Another tap forces the square to stomp down, hopefully onto the next platform. With platforms moving from side to side, timing is everything. Not only that, the movement of the platform also impacts the direction you jump in. This from the App Store editors' notes:

    Beat Stomper requires 136MB on iPhone and iPad, and can be downloaded for free on the App Store. [Direct Link]

    I normally check out free apps/games but the video for this one immediately turned me off. It sounds obnoxious.

    Thanks for the heads up MR. Never heard of this but downloaded it and gave it a go.

    Boy, they should rename it to "Epilepsy Seizure Simulator". Personally not a fan, but I hope somebody enjoys it.

    So the chick's voice in the trailer is...interesting.

    But yeah this sounded like a DDR remake with what looks like the simplest, most boring game-play ever.

    Thank for the video.

    Saved me from downloading and the pain of trying it out. As mentioned above any title with Vertigo or Epilepsy Plus, would be a better name

    Instead of 5 stars, five OUCHs!
