What's New in Version 1.1
- Fixed issue for slow response controls on old generation devices.
Poor representation to Kavinsky's perfection.
His music doesn't even compare to this game. This feels like someone trying to put Kavinsky's Ferrari's engine into a Toyota Camri. It just doesn't fit. I'm sorry Record Makers but you don't know squat when it comes to portraying your artist through a game. The concept is there but the game needs so much work for what you are trying to do its ridiculous. I mean seriously, old school arcade+old school racing with tilt controls+whatever that mode is when u take a picture. It's a cool concept don't get me wrong with beyond awesome music but you are misrepresenting your artist to someone who doesn't recognize the artists music to start with.
Please update the app with more stabilization, especially on your tilt controls or better yet, add touch controls. Love your love for the artist, but this just seems like trying to make money off an artist name with little effort to even make it believable. Please don't tarnish your artists and accurately represent Kavinsky with an updated app that shines through with his music at the epicenter. Thanks.
Beautiful - but needs some work
I am a huge fan of Kavinsky's music and the visuals he uses with his music, there is a lot of thought and hard work behind that man. The app itself is very well done, and really sets the mood and feel for the album. If you are a visual person when you listen to music, definitely check this out.
However, I played this game on both my 4S and iPad Mini, and had a hard time figuring out some of the controls. An introductory level to test out the controls, or even a basic tutorial would be helpful. Level 2 is very glitchy, any time I moved away from the image or even tilted my phone playing the level caused it to reset itself and eventually fail the level.
The game itself is a little hard to beat each level, especially when you don't know what is expected of you to complete it. While this does hearken back to the arcade games the app tries to emulate, it makes it frustrating.
Despite these problems, I commend Kavinsky and RecordMakers for the effort that went into this app, and I sincerely look forward to any and all updates that come with it!
Kavinsky is a fantastic promotional app for Kavinsky's new album, using some awesome late 80's, early 90's inspired beat-em-up gameplay as the driving force, pushing gamers to check out his music. Really - I didn't expect a promo app to be this incredibly well made. The game could very well stand on it's own two feet if it was expanded a bit and had more content added. Anyway - check it out - the music and the gameplay are both very, very solid!
