I have to admit, this game surprised me. I got this game from a bundle and decided to install it to try it out. I end up really liking it and played it until the very end. It's a rhythm based game, you have to change between 3 panels with Q and E, you use the arrows to hit the notes.

When I saw the tutorial I thought the game would be insanely confusing and hard to play, but it's quite nicely done, as you see all 3 panels at once at any time, so you see what is coming.

The art is really cool, the music is awesome and the story is even more awesome! I wanted to play until the end to know what happens... It's full of surprises, it's hiralious and you get hooked right into the story.

The spells aren't limited to only damage, you have shielding, direct damage, DOT, healing, boosts... Alot of different spells to use. You have to kill the monsters and ascend floors until you reach the top. All monsters have specific drops which you have a certain percentage of getting everytime you kill them (with music of course). You also have to craft/find your gear and you can learn new spells by using scrolls and completing the songs with high accuracy or note combos.

Theres not many bad things to say about the game... My only real issue with the game is the hitboxes... Sometimes it looks like you miss but it actually works and sometimes you think you succesfully hit the note but you didin't. Luckily this rarely happens so it didin't affect me too much. Maybe i'm just bad at the game though, I don't know!

This game is definately worth looking into, especially since it is only 4.99$. I'd say anybody that likes good stories or rhythm/music-based games should really try it out!

Art: 9/10 (I am being a little too much critical here, it is above great!)
Code: 10/10 (can not see flaws, very agile and stable! +there is calibration feature to fix A/V off-sync!)
Enjoyability: 9/10 +consists great humour! (especially check item descriptions!)
Beatmaps: 7/10 (sometimes weaker beats result in two keypress, when the strong one is one key press)
Toughtness if necessary: 10/10 (there are four difficulty settings: easy, medium, hard, spasmodic)


9/10

PROTIPS: #1: Use ASDF instead of arrows and numeric keypad 4,6 to rotate and 1,2,3,7,8,9 for spells. Really comfortable! #2: Medium is too easy. #3: Spasmodic difficulty most likely will require playing against easier enemies repetitively in order to level up and beat stronger enemies or to use recipes, because that will help a lot; makes game a little more like RPG because of the repetitions, but that is enjoyable, really. If that is not for you, take hard or normal. When I started with normal and went to 4th floor, I felt it was too easy for me and I went for spasmodic difficulty. I found it really challenging and that is what I really hoped for.

Great than Thapster app. It contains a lot of wonderful musics especially the last one with the boss scene, hard like hell but challenging to achieve 100%. The story is basic for me but I have a little surprise of it a bit though.

If you like music-tap game so this is the best game I can recommend.

And the other thing that I love is the publisher releases their soundtracks for free.

Now I have to admit when I first started playing this game I had quite low expectations of it. I absolutely love rhythm games but I couldnt see how they could successfully combine this into a RPG style. Although I was proved wrong as this game is AMAZING!!

The mechanics of the game are very unique and there is nothing quite like it. You use the rhythm of the music to fight a battle. To this you use the arrow keys and click them as soon as the arrow reaches the bottom of the screen. And this is when it gets unique. You have 3 fields to control via this rhythm ability. Mana, Attack and Defense. Mana is collected and can be used to cast spells in the attack field. You can switch through these fields at your free will. You need to make sure that you use each field correctly and at the right time to survive and win the battle.

The story of this game is what most suprised me. It had me hooked throughout the entire thing. There are many twists in the story that keep you guessing throughout the game. The voice is acting is very well done and the characters are very likable. You really do get to know the characters. In a rhythm game a gripping story is the last thing I would have expected. I am not going to go into detail about the story but just experience it for yourself and you will see how great it is.

The whole look of the game is completely incredible. The art style gives a real great look to the game that compliments the awesome gameplay.

Throughout the floors you get different items. You have collect these items through playing the levels. I felt the items abilitys were very well balanced and contributed well to the gameplay. These items are obtained through a random drop rate on levels. Some items have a very low drop rate on levels later on the game. Unfortunetely this is where my only bad point comes from this game. To get these items it can become very grindy with you having to repeat these levels multiple times in a row just to get it. This can get very boring after a while.

I'll end this review with the best part of the game, the soundtrack. It is made of music by Ronald Jenkees and Michael Wade Hamilton. I always feel that a game has a great soundtrack when I like it so much that I even listen to it outside of the game itself, and with this one I did. It is incredible and goes great with a rhythm game.

Overall this game is a true masterpiece and a bit of a hidden gem. This game is possibly one of the best I have ever played and I really highly recommend it.

A factastic application of Rhythm mechanics to an RPG. Essentially a game about breakdance-fighting monsters. The writing is also hilarious.

You juggle three separate beatmania windows (defense, spell casting, mana regen) in a story like tetris attack.

And now time for me to take a ♥♥♥♥ on this game and explain why it's bad.

There's a drop system, but you almost only get ingredients--which means there's a craft system.

The only way to get the keys you need to acess the next level of eneimes and progress in the game is to hope the levels drop the ingredients you need and THEN hope you succeed in crafting.

Every time you craft you sacrifice your exp (INCLUDING LEVELING DOWN) and here's the kicker: you can fail to craft, which will expend the exp regardless. It almost sounds absurd how badly this game wants to eat your time while pretending it's fun. If time is money then this game is on the same level as those horrendous microtransaction modeled games.

The poorly voiced dialouge is littered with social justice warrior overtones (I wish I were joking), and since all your fights are timed you'll end up wanting or needing to grind levels to hit harder faster. OH WAIT I SPENT MY EXP AND LEVELED DOWN BECAUSE THE RNG REFUSED TO CRAFT PROPERLY.

Don't worry though, you can increase your chances to craft successfully by.........spending more exp per attempt.

Uninstalled, I regret spending money on this ♥♥♥♥ fest.

I’m horrible at rhythm games, I’ve never had the speed and skills to get through the harder difficulties and at the easier levels it feels like it’s to simple and child’s play. So I was kinda meh about the whole idea behind Sequence. But as soon as I got in there I must say that I really REALLY enjoyed rhythm gaming mixed with RPG elements, fighting, spells, mana and so on. Giving my successes and failures a deeper meaning.

It surprisingly fun to pull of a combo in Sequence and you’re rewarded with fun characters, good dialogue (not the best voice acting maybe but still fun dialogue). And for the first time I want to get further and deeper through the game… and it’s a rhythm game! The hardcore rhythm gamers will probably enjoy this, and the casual ones will like this, and the non rhythm gamers will still enjoy it for feeling more like a puzzle game.

Give this game a chance!

Recommended.

Expectation should be left at the door when playing Sequence. Catchy tracks align themselves neatly with "gems" or arrows on the tracks, bringing a truely rhythmic experience.

Sequence occasionally feels like a grind and my experience has only been through PC controls through normal difficulty.
I still rate this game highly on rhythmic value, the combat system is a nice tweek to the typical guitar hero style approach; with switch lanes that reminds me of Frequency and/or Amplitude.

!!! Do not measure this game by store value, it's an experience not to be missed !!!

Sequence is a solid rhythm combat game, with good emphasis on multitasking. The graphics are nice, but lacking true animation. Music in the game is good, but the limited setlist means several songs will be repeated. That repetition will get on your nerves, as the progression system in the game pushes for RPG-style grinding to craft all the equipment. With 3 monsters to choose per floor, you will have to repeat fights to get all the random crafting parts.

The game is solid and affordable, and I can recognize the music even a year after beating it. It doesn't need much of a sale to be a great deal, and I could recommend it at full price if you like the idea of the combat grind.

Idea is fun and refreshing, visuals are fine, music is ok, but it gets too grindy for me by the end... It's not too long, so I suggest to give it a shot... Especially if you find it cheap...

A really awesome game that knows what it is trying to be and maximizes its potential.

What I like:
-Awesome soundtrack. I expected to tire of the music after playing a mission a few times, but it does a good job of remaining likeable throughout.
-Great visual and audible feedback when hitting and missing notes.
-I love the storyline and the voicework. Just amateur enough to seem like a project done by your friends, just professional enough to not be too distracting.
-The three way split really adds to the DDR formula and makes it a strategic challenge instead of a reflex workout.
-Scope of the game is just right. Not too big, not too small.

What I didn't like:
-Sometimes it becomes a grind when you need just one item to advance and you can't quite get it.

Not really about the game, but I love the trailers. If you don't know about hitpoints... this probably isn't the game for you.

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.

Sequence is an interesting RPG. The game plays like Dance Dance Revolution with the notes divided into 3 separate note tracks running concurrently on the screen for casting spells, defending against attacks and regenerating mana. There is a quirky story to pull you through to the end but what won me over was most definitely the music tracks behind the gameplay.

I can't really gauge how difficult it is to play for beginners to the genre due to my many years of playing rhythm games from Stepmania, Guitar Hero and my current timesink of Osu!. Anyone who has played such games should find no problems however with adapting to the mechanics.

Due to the RPG nature of the game, it can become a grind for specific items to drop on the monsters which are used to craft items needed to progress in the floors. The game does not come with any additional content beyond the story that I am aware of (I played mostly at release back in 2011).

Sequence wasn't the most challenging game personally but it sits in my game library as a comfortable purchase when I look back over two years. Give it a go if it is on sale but just be aware it may not be fun for everyone; the usual disclaimer case for most games in the rhythm genre.

A truly great and engrossing indie game. The music is good. I wish there were a few more songs, they start to get a little repetitive as you near the end of the game.
