Customer Reviews

Pretty and soft and cough...

I really like this band. I'm a little disappointed they left that cough in at the end of the song, (oh! Spoiler!), but it's still a lovely single filled with the childlike simplicity they captured so perfectly in light and day.

This app is pretty much just a little kind of toy to poke at while you listen to the song. You can open a flower or two but can't really do much to affect the animation, which moves along at it's own pace. You can't,for example, linger at a particular spot and noodle around with the scenery.... The description from Moonbot sort of leaves that impression. The animation, however, is really cute and illustrates the song well. My young kids will probably love it. It's the kind of thing you'd find on a band's website.
It would have been more satisfying, I think, if the listener/user were able to truly explore the world of this song, rather then just be carried along through the video poking at stuff as it went.

Still, I hope there is more,(and more interactive) videos like this and I was happy to invest the $2 This cost in order to encourage more releases. For sure this is a step in the right direction and I can see reserving a folder on my iPad for just these sorts of videos.

Beautiful and artistic, but justified purchase? Debatable

Bullseye is a beautiful and artistic visual interactive experience, but it's also one whose value I would greatly question. I understand the need to support musicians and artists and the fact that no game or app is cheap (subjectively) to make, but this is one in which the entire sensation can be had in less than 5 minutes. At $2 that's a high price to pay.

There are moments, unfortunately, where the frame rate either drops or stutters. This wouldn't be so bad if watching, enjoying, and interacting with the animation weren't part of the experience.

Yes!

Wow. They've done it again, released a song that tells a story about society and tugs at the heartstrings and then backed it with a supercool visual montage.
This is art and music, not a video game, so if you expect a game you're in the wrong place. It's just a novel way to present a song and it costs just a buck more than a single on iTunes- totally worth it for this novel visual journey.
