This is a very interesting game that has new ideas and styles. Buy it if you like and appreciate original ideas.

Totally Amazing!

This game is full of bells and whistles...literally! An awesome rhythm platformer...with boss fights. It truly doesn't get more epic then that.

Great music

Great game overall although a bit short. A must buy for rhythm game aficionados.
