Customer Reviews

I love this game!

I love pulse! Now all I need is more songs!

The one thing is, since the new update, some of the songs are messed up in a few, like Orbital Drop and DT01, or the last track, some of the little circles that you press on fly across the screen and don't line up, unlike the older version. I don't know if this was on purpose or not, but it doesn't seem to be so. It might be the program, or the fact that my IPad is the first generation, I don't know myself, but please fix if it's on your part! I'll still keep the game, because most of the tracks are fine.

New songs

I absolutely love everything about this game! Which is why I desperately ask for some more songs. I know two have just been added, but sadly I do not think that is enough. I would really appreciate some more songs and I'm sure others would agree. Thank you!

Great but...

I love this game, and think its a great twist on the music game genre. This update includes two new songs, one is slow and boring but the other (dead by arrival) is fantastic. The only problem is this game is we need more songs!!!!!!
