Sequence renamed to Before the Echo

Due to a legal claim by Jax Ltd., Sequence has been renamed to Before the Echo. Which sucks, but it ain't worth the hassle. Trust me.

Sorry for the inconvenience and confusion, guys.

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.

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.

Before the Echo (used to be Sequence) is a game that combines the rhythm game genre and the RPG genre. It combines the element of grinding from RPG games and rhythm game EXTREME TAPPING EXTRAVAGANZA!!! very well, and if you are a fan of both, definitely get this game. This game is only $4.99 and is totally worth it, even at full price. I've never seen a game that has successfully combined two different genres together so well.

Before the Echo also has a story included inside of it. I really love all of the character voice acting especially the sassiness of the main characters, Ky and Naia (it's pretty funny because of the amount of sass).There are also automatic saves that appear very often, which is great. Music is also very fun and upbeat as well.



Also, this game has taught me one lesson.

Multitasking is hard.

TL;DR --> It costs less than an euro during sales, and it doesn't mean it's a bad game. It's a sign to purchase it as a duty.

If you're reading this, congratulations! You have a good taste in videogames.

As a hardcore rhythm game player, Before the Echo caught my attention soon enough but honestly I didn't know what to expect. The conclusion after beating everything is a fully recommendation of the game.

Before the Echo (also known as Sequence) is a rhythm game with RPG elements. The basic stuff in summary (HP, Mana, EXP, weapons, accesories...). The main character, Ky, has somehow placed himself into a tower where he needs to fight mobs and bosses in order to escape.

The battle system consists in getting control of 3 labels of notes. They have different purposes and you need to know when to focus into one or another. I won't explain their features here since the game has tutorials for that.

PROS:

+ The artwork is cool. Backgrounds are good-looking, and so are characters and foes.
+ The soundtrack, as you might expect from a rhythm game, is pretty awesome. It also combines many music styles so if you're open minded with that stuff you'll probably enjoy it a lot.
+ 4 difficulties, from lame to more challenging.
+ The RPG system is pretty well included. Just as simple as it needs to be.
+ The storymode is surprisingly interesting. The characters' charisma helpsa lot here.
+ The dialogues. This is actually one of the most remarkable features. Dialogues in this game are VERY hilarious. Together with a pretty cool voice acting, dialogues will keep you super entertaining and will provide many, many laughs.

CONS:

- Despite having a cool artwork, there's not too much variety, specially from foes.
- At some points grinding/farming is mandatory.
- All achievements can be obtained no matter the difficulty you set, which makes them WAY less satisfying.
- No leaderboards.
- Steam version works like a Flash game (for instance, I couldn't make screenshots, nor broadcasts).

All in all, I've had a GREAT experience with this game. It has some minor flaws I could perfectly ignore, and every rhythm player should try this out. You'll surely find some good fun and discover a very consistent title despite its price (less than an euro during sales... WHAT?).

Final Mark: 7.5/10

I started playing and could not stop until I finished the story.

Everything about this game is great. The story is mysterious, the characters have personality and are well-voiced, there is a simple crafting element, and the sense of incremental progress that you want in an RPG. The rhythm mechanic works very well! It keeps battles interesting and fun.

My only complaint is that there is not enough music. The system in this game deserves a wide array of music. There were only ~12 battle songs throughout the game. I found myself a little disappointed when I'd face a new monster or boss and think, "Oh, it's this song again." I do like the quality of the music, and would prefer quality over quantity, but the ideal case would be both. :)

If you are a fan of rhythm games and RPGs, this is the game for you!
