It’s actually not what you may be thinking – BeatNiks is not a game about the beat poets of the ‘50s and ‘60s, those forerunners of today’s so-called “hipsters.” It’s an Android and iOS game from Harmonix that allows you to create and adopt your own BeatNik, which is a pet that’s made from your favorite music. You can choose from different music-inspired accessories and clothing items to customize your pet, play the usual mini-games to ensure your pet’s happiness, and do everything you could to keep it happy. The game boasts of more than a hundred items based on rock, pop, R&B, and just about every other genre out there, as well as items you can use to decorate your BeatNik’s home.
Raising pets is not easy business, as anyone who owns their own real-life pets can attest to. But we can make things easier for you with this list of BeatNiks tips, cheats and tricks.

When it comes to taking care of your BeatNiks, you should always pay attention to the need bubbles. The moment you see one of them dropping down, perform the action that would allow you to bring them back up.
