“... Sequence is one of only four or five games I've ever played that lives up to its potential so absolutely and with so little room for improvement.”

Sequence is an entirely unique game which combines rhythm gaming with RPG mechanics. Three boards drop arrows simultaneously in a DDR fashion - one for attack, one for defense, and one for regeneration of mana with which to attack further. The player rotates between the boards while pressing the arrows in time with music in order to win the battle, gain experience and items, craft weapons, and learn new spells.

It's quite fun, if a bit short. The voice acting is quite solid for a budget title, the music is fairly good, and the graphics are perfectly serviceable if quite static - however, for the type of game it is, that doesn't get in the way.

The story gets a little odd (if predictably so) towards the end, but all in all, I had a lot of fun throughout. It's more for rhythm game fans than RPG fans, as those mechanics are the dominant ones, but it's definitely worth a look if you want to try something different.

Sequence is an amazing music driven game with phenomenal dialogue lines and voice acting, the storyline is also very compelling. Totally worth the full price, I strongly recommend this game for everyone!

Im huge fan of stepmania and in the meanwhile I played it without a step board, arrows, arrows everywhere - thats why I gladly started playin Sequence, no, not by the arrows itself but by the close gameplay of rhythm music game ;) If u are one of those who enjoy any kind of music game dont hesitate to play this sweet title with charmin hand drawn artworks and really good piece of music tracks, U'll love it since u can play here as total casual to complete storyline and yet play for fun or choose the way-of-a-peaceful-warrior's-magic-fingers and smash ur keyboard in the end >:D 9/10

Sequence is a rhythm game at heart. Where it differs from standard rhythm games is that it features unique RPG elements to mix up the gameplay. Like in a traditional RPG, you'll get into battles with different foes. The battle system is fairly simple. There's 3 windows, all with arrows falling down ranging from left, right, up, and down. You need to press the designated arrows, and if you miss you lose some of your health. One window is to defend from enemy attacks, one is to generate mana, and the last one is to cast spells. It seems complicated at first, but it really isn't. Once you defeat the enemy, the battle is over.

Unfortunately, for me at least. The battle system got boring very quickly. Part of the reason for that is because I found the music very dull and forgettable. But then again, music is different for everyone. So I can't speak for others.
The game also features a story. One which I don't really enjoy... I can't connect to the characters. They try to be funny, but it just doesn't work for me. And the jokes just keep coming and coming. There's voice acting too. Some of the characters sound ok, but others don't. Everything just feels so stale. The characters and backgrounds could use a bit of animation.

I just can't recommend Sequence. There are a lot of better rhythm games out there. The key part of a rhythm game is the music, and I just don't enjoy the music in this game. The battle system gets bland very quickly. Story is optional for this kind of game, but this one tried to have one and it didn't work. I just don't enjoy it.

This game is surprisingly addictive. While other indie games like Limbo, Braid, etc., may make a better first impression with their stark visual style and challenging gameplay, Sequence is the game I find myself coming back to the most. It's just plain fun. The game has amazing replay value, too. The different difficulty settings mean you can always give yourself a new challenge, and if you happen to be lucky enough to own a PC compatible dance pad or guitar, then there are even more ways to play it, too.

I'm not a huge fan of rhythm, but I was pulled in by the game's deep strategy. There is a lot more to this game than just pressing buttons to the beat! In fact, there is so much more to it that it might be off-putting or confusing to some people. In order to be successful, you have to be good at multi-tasking, and there is no such thing as a perfect run on the songs (due to the three-screen system, missing some notes is inevitable).

The music is good, with all the tracks distinctive and crisp. The art style is so-so. Another interesting feature of this already interesting game is the story. With a game like this, I really would have expected a tacked-on story or even none at all. However, the developer put in a decent effort to make an engaging tale with a few twists and turns. It didn't blow me away, but it is by no means terrible. It's a little above standard visual novel quality, and while I wouldn't reccomend playing the game for the story alone, I think quite a few players will be pleasantly surprised by just how good it is.

All-in-all, one of my favorite indie games. I'm a little sad that more people haven't played this game, as it is a fresh take on both RPG and rhythm games. Definitely needs more love!

As a RPG and Stepmania enthousiast, this would seem like the perfect Indie game for me. And indeed, it was fun to play. It was unique. It was something fresh. And being a RPG fan, I am used with doing repetitive things in order to get that one rare drop.

One warning is that even casual gamers who would like to simply play the game and go through the story, might still face some moments where they have to engage battles over and over to get that last item for a recipe. Bite through it, the way you make story progression is quite slow in itself. Ronald Jenkees kicks ♥♥♥, but not after the 6~7th time in a row. Yeah, having only one fixed song per enemy doesn't get you on your toes that much.

On sales it's usually just one buck, so hopefully no buyer's remorse after you've even spent an hour at it.
