I’ve never been a massive fan of games in the clicker genre, as apart from a few exceptions, I tend to lose interest over time as it doesn’t really feel like I’m doing anything. That being said, one of the most prominent exceptions to this rule was Groove Planet (Free), which managed to reinvigorate this relatively stale genre with a rhythm game element, in that you had to tap along to either the game’s excellent soundtrack or your own songs to progress. While, at its heart, this wasn’t too much of a leap away from the typical gameplay of similar titles, this extra element just made it seem so much more involved, which is why Groove Planet was our Game of the Week in December of last year. Today, an update for Groove Planet has been released with even more content to distinguish itself from other clicker games, such as boss battles, new song, and much more.
The improvements that developer Animoca has made to Groove Planet in the newest 2.0 update are substantial, and go some way to mixing up the gameplay beyond its initial rhythm-game-meets-clicker premise. With boss battles against alien spaceships, six new exclusive EDM songs, more intelligent patterns through a Beat Pattern system, as well as some other minor improvements like the implementation of a Guide setting, Groove Planet has come along leaps and bounds since its already impressive initial release back in 2015. If you’re a fan of the game, be sure to give the new update a go, and let us know your impressions on the new boss battles on our forum thread.
