BeatRoot

Using the civilization-toppling forces of time, math, and (most powerful of all) rhythm, a beetroot goes to save his family from a terrible wizard. Hello, and thank you for checking out BeatRoot! BeatRoot is an arcade rhythm game with a platformer element to give it that extra spice. Take on the heroic role of saving your Beetroot family from a terrible Carrot Wizard and hit those arrow keys in time to a funky rhythm. Be careful, because the Carrot Wizard has an array of spells he'll throw to try and knock you off your rhythm. But what he doesn't know is that you, Beethaniel, have the most powerful tool of all in your arsenal...MATH!!!
