Thank you Atari for sending us a review code!

Avicii was a very talented DJ who took his life in 2018. His parents founded the Tim Bergling Foundation mental health awareness/suicide prevention foundation in his honor. Royalties from this game will benefit this charitable organization.

Beat Legend: Avicii features fifteen of his most popular songs. Some of the original songs like “Without You” have expletives in them, but thankfully they’ve been removed in this game. The tracks have a hard coded difficulty setting and there’s no way to change it. As a result, some of my favorites songs like “Levels” are at the hardest difficulty and I don’t do well playing it. Some tracks like “Lonely Together”, “Addicted to You”, and “SOS” have suggestive themes and/or drug references in them.

Beat Legend: Avicii
Highlights:

Strong Points: Great selection of songs
Weak Points: Cannot change the difficulty level of the songs
Moral Warnings: Some of the songs allude to hooking up and doing drugs 

I recently reviewed and thoroughly enjoyed Avicii Invector which is controller based and available on PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One. Beat Legend: Avicii is a $2.99 stripped down variant of the PC version. Avicii Invector is hands down a better game, but it’s also $20.

Instead of focusing on pressing specific controller buttons, in Beat Legend: Avicii you have to tap the corresponding circles on the bottom of the screen when the beat lines up with them. Make sure that your device supports multi-touch or your score will be severely penalized. Depending on your timing, you’ll be rated with a Perfect, Great, Good, OK, or Miss. The tracks are multidimensional and you’ll have to swipe to the left and right when instructed to do so.

Most songs begin with only three circles and will occasionally have a fourth one. The harder songs have four circles more often than three. There are also free-flying sections where you have to guide your spaceship through glowing hoops in the sky. Some notes require you to hold them while catching the others flying by. You’ll often find beats with multiplier values and you’ll want to get these to give your score a nice boost.

At the end of the song you’ll be scored by your longest streak and how many notes you have successfully hit versus the ones you’ve missed. If you’re not happy with the letter grade you’re given, you can always try again. I mostly got B’s and C’s.

If you’re a fan of Avicii’s electronic dance music, you’ll be happy with the song selection. If you enjoy Rhythm games, Beat Legend: Avicii is definitely worth looking into. Despite the Everyone and ages 4+ ratings on the mobile store pages, there is some mature content worth considering. I wish there were different difficulty settings, but for $2.99, I can’t complain too much!

About Us:

Christ Centered Gamer looks at video games from two view points. We analyze games on a secular level which will break down a game based on its graphics, sound, stability and overall gaming experience. If you’re concerned about the family friendliness of a game, we have a separate moral score which looks at violence, language, sexual content, occult references and other ethical issues.
