Red Bull BC One review

  • "Stylised" graphics
  • "Hip" soundtrack
  • "Original" idea
  • "Awful" graphics
  • "Embarrassing" taunts
  • "Terrible" gameplay

Breakdancing and geometry may sound like unlikely bedfellows, and this game proves beyond all doubt that this is the case. A tie-in with the real-world breakdancing contest, BC One challenges you to concoct fly b-boy moves by drawing shapes between coloured blobs on the touch screen. The more shapes you draw, the better your moves; hit the wrong colour and you stumble. There are also interludes where you spin the stylus to, er, spin, and a bit where you have to join the dots around a person’s outline – very crime scene.

It’s hard to imagine the line-drawing idea appealing to some baggy-trousered freestyler, and on top of this, the graphics are terrible (we think they may be ‘stylised’, but they look lame), the hip soundtrack uninspiring and the pre-match taunting cringeworthy.
