Overall a pretty fun game; it makes listening to music more enjoyable. I would recommend. I love the variety of tracks it can be played to, as well as how the ship firing and enemy ship movements are controlled by the energy of a song.
How the enemies appear make less sense. I wish there was some sort of list describing the various enemies and what makes them appear, or more information available on what exactly the triggers that spawn enemies and control their actions are. That would make gameplay much more interesting by allowing players to predict and prepare for what is coming up, and would make the visualization of the music more enjoyable and effective by understanding what components of the music the players are seeing as enemies appear.
Additional modes for different kinds of music, different visualizer modes, perhaps, would also make gameplay more diverse and interesting and would keep me more interested in the game.
Pretty dang fun, and a bit of a challenge! :)
I never really thought that video games could be powered by music. That is, until I picked up this crazy-awesome shooter! Fun. Hectic. Addicting. Although, bear in mind that I do NOT recommend this to anyone who is prone to epileptic seizures and/or is sensitive to flashing lights (all for health and safety precautions, of course), because this game has a boatload of those (which can thankfully be toned up to a maximum of 200% intensity, or down to the users' preference). And, might I add, these lights add to the action of this game. The more intense your music gets, be it metal, good old R&R, or heavy dubstep (I recommend xKore and Liquid Stranger), the more intense the gameplay becomes, and it may even cause a boss to appear on occasion.
So, all in all, this is a game that I will not likely be removing from my phone (or computer) anytime soon.
Game is so good I bought it twice. Bought it 3 years ago for PS3 then bought it a couple years ago for my phone. Absolutely tons of fun and every single song in your library is a different level. Even a live version of a song produces a different level than the studio version of the same song. Great, well made game. Only complaint is the On-Screen Sticks.. Like any game using the control scheme it can be difficult to perform dodging maneuvers but otherwise a well done game
