Though we've posted a ton of videos from E3 and Pocket Gamer Connects over the past two weeks, we're still catching up with the backlog of hands-on footage we've captured.

However, we couldn't go a moment longer without posting this video Beatbuddy, a gorgeous and ingenious new rhythm action game coming soon to iPhone and iPad.

Dropped in the world of Symphonia, you must guide Beatbuddy around six 2D worlds to stop an evil maestro from stealing all the music in the world.

Sounds and rhythms pulse from objects and platforms all over the world. You'll need to use them to navigate each level, rebounding off throbbing plantlife to break down barriers, and timing your movements to coincide with the beat.

As you push further into each level, the music builds layer by layer, revealing an orignal composition created specifically for the game.

Beatbuddy has already won design awards in Germany, and been favourably received on PC. Check out the hands-on video above to see the iOS version in action.
