The only serious problem with this game, in my opinion, is lack of sequels... Even after all these years, trading cards would definitely increase the flow of new potential consumers, thus cash flow... A newer version with some updates and upgrades and new content could be made and become quite profitable for the developers, and of course more enjoying for the rest of us too.

Either way, however, this game is incredibly soothing at times, casual at it's finest.

Any bugs and/or glitches it may have had seem gone and/or easily fixed/avoidable, in my experience. The closest I can think of, is that some levels can be beaten on accident, by rapidly moving items around the screen, which can help if annoyed, and you can always go back and replay whatever levels you want.
At times it does get very difficult and trial & error can become frustrating, which obviously can become negative rather rapidly. But there are likely to be solutions you notice later on, or at the very least you can find them online, then resume your relaxing gameplay.
As for issues with music not looping properly, I've not encountered them, but it can be helpful on some levels to remember that not all of the melodies are constantly playing each part. (I forget the musical terminology and would rather relax than google it to explain it more clearly.)

Beautiful, minimilist, music puzzle game. Soothing. Challenging without being fustrating. (at least not yet)
No tutorial at all, and no hand holding, but simple enough to pick up on your own, and they start you off slow. They add new control elements every few levels so there not enough time to get bored. Very happy I got this game.

Not everyone will like the simplicity, but I love finding something a little outside the box that was obviously well designed.

This style of gameplay is not really my cup of tea, but that's why I didn't particularly like this game. It's because it didn't quite live up to my expectations with regards to the "puzzle" and "music" parts of the game. I found the controls and menu layout to be a little wonky; I was slightly lost. The "puzzle" portion, due to the loose mechanics of the game, feels more like a game of trial and error and tweaking rather than something enjoyable. This is made a tad worse by the wonky controls. The most "musical" it gets is...mixing instruments together, except that you have to mix all of the instruments together each time — there's no choice. If you really want something musical, go play a game like Circuits instead.

Edit: I just realized I should be a bit more positive about this game after getting a bit further in it. The music is indeed spectacular: mostly piano and strings, but a nice orchestral feel.

Edit 2: OK I just dug into the game's samples and found out why the loops aren't perfect (thus ruining the immersion factor somewhat): they use MP3 format, which is terrible for looping because it adds silences on the edges of the sound sample. Even if the MP3s are well-calibrated sample-for-sample, the silences still don't make the loops as smooth as they should be. The devs probably should've used OGG or WAV format instead. (As an aside, you can find parts for three unused songs in the game's files.)

Cute logic game with relaxing sounds and visuals. Great design of the levels with difficuly rising fast enough to keep the player entertained. Cut off samples and lack of loops can hurt ears after longer time of playing, but considering how old this game is (it was developed in 2008!), a lot can be forgiven.

Don't let the release date fool you - Auditorium is a older game than its Steam incarnation. The original game was released in 2009 as a web app, and the Steam version does show its age in that regard. The graphics are underpowered by modern standards, and the audio doesn't loop cleanly.

But, to this day, Auditorium remains one of the most creative and enjoyable games I've ever played. The mechanics are intuive but incredibly challenging as you continue playing. In the last 7 years, I've played through this game multiple times over, and my solutions to each puzzle are always different than the last time. Even though it's aged poorly, it's still fun to come back to every once in a while.

Unfortunately, Auditorium doesn't get a happy ending. Its sequel, funded via Kickstarter in 2012, is one of the most notorious bits of vaporware to ever come out of the Kickstarter platform. It's a shame, too, because a sequel to this game would have been wonderful. Instead, it and Cipher Prime are posterchildren for unfulfilled Kickstarter campaigns.

If you have an unplayed copy of this game, you should definitely play it. If you don't... well, after 4 years of nothing but broken promises, it's hard to recommend giving Cipher Prime your money.

pros:
  • music
  • mechanism

cons:
  • It's not actually looping but instead cut off the song and start over again.
  • no graphics settings, very low resolution.

7.1/10 - Pump up the Volume and Solve!

I quite like this unique puzzle game. You use audio wavelengths to fill up some containers to produce some sweet music! Each set of levels work as segments in a musical piece which you must 'fix' to complete the song. The brilliant color combinations complete the experience and really make this puzzler a winner.

Be aware after the first Act things get much more difficult, I found myself worrying less about any audio elements and just working the levels like a jigsaw puzzle. These levels do take some thinking at times, but they make sense so you can usually fidget with things enough to complete the puzzle. The price is way too much for this offering though, especially since their main claim is being an "Award Winning Browser Game". Shouldn't that ♥♥♥♥ be free or cheap then?

Worth $1.99 or so; I wouldn't purchase for more than a few bucks.

A decent, simple music puzzle game that has a fair bit of complexity in later levels but can take a little bit of time to ramp.

Each "Act" features a different piece of music which you create by sending a stream of music across different bars. Each set of bars will be a different part (melody, bass, secondary, etc) which combine to create the piece of music for that act. This is done using a varying set of tools (directional/rejection, portals, speed up/slow down, etc) and challenges (colors, splitting streams, etc) in order to meet the requirements for each level. It should be noted that while this is a music game, it's NOT a rhythm game.

While there's no demo, you can find the first 2 (or 3? I can't recall) Acts on the developer's website: http://www.cipherprime.com/games/auditorium which introduces the core concepts. It's how I was first exposed to it years before it came out on Steam.

This isn't a game that I'd recommend sitting down and cranking through - you'll knock out a few levels, and then move on to something else. It's not terribly difficult, but makes for an excellent, relaxing palete cleanser. Think "tablet game designed before tablet games were a thing."

Auditorium is a satisfying little puzzler. Its mechanics are elegant, and initially relaxing.

The difficulty ramps up pretty quickly, though. About half-way through the puzzle list, puzzle solving becomes less about having a moment of inspiration, and more about sliding the puzzle elements around the screen and seeing what happens. Sometimes moving a puzzle element just one or two pixels can dramatically change what's happening on screen. At this point, the game feels much less elegant, and more like a grind.

Still, auditorium has a certain charm, and memorable gameplay.

Auditorium is a puzzle indie game made by Cipher Prime Studios (Splice, Fractal, Intake). As it's Cipher Prime's standard, they tried to make an unique game, which ended up successfully.

Gameplay revolves around using direction changers of sound wavelength that you have to direct into a speaker. You might experience a similar feel to a puzzle games built around gravity, as you'll have to set the reach radius of direction changers. But there are actually not just objects to change directions, there are also speed modifiers or attractors.

What's really worth praising is the fact that levels doesn't have a specific solution - it's up to your experiments that leads to your own way of activating the relaxing music (beating the level). In combination with great soundtrack and gorgeous flow of differently coloured wavelengths, Auditorium is worth even to those who aren't much into puzzle games, but want just to relax for a while at a casual game.

To name the biggest flaw of the game, is the fact that it's made in really low resolution for today's standards. There isn't a HD remake expected, so you'll have to put up with small window mode or blurry fullscreen. But to those who don't mind that, Auditorium is worth recommending.

Let me start by saying that I really wish I could recommend this game. I enjoy puzzle games and I am a great music lover (from classical music to metal and from jazz to techno) so when something combines these two I get excited like a little girl...

The puzzle element of auditorium is really fun and I really liked the fact that puzzles could be solved in more then one way. The visual effect are very cool and make the game nice to look at.

But here is where the game lost me: the samples.
If you make a game where loops are needed, these loops must be perfect and one should never hear the 'start' and 'ending' of a sample. In this game the loops are cut off and start over again. This is, in my opinion, unforgivable.

Hopefully this will not be practice in the second Auditorium.

A simple puzzle game greatly enhanced by a superb art direction. Some may describe it as somewhat pointless, but nonetheless is a beautiful audio-visual experience.

Неплохая головоломка. Несмотря на всю её однообразность.

Суть игры проста - направлять лучи света в определённые области, чтобы они преобразовывались в музыку. И выглядит это, по меньшей мере, красиво. (Хотя это, возможно, из-за моей любви к абстракции) Сама же музыка на слух довольно приятна, хотя зациклены звуки не на самом лучшем уровне, слышны короткие паузы. Но это не мешает наслаждаться озвучкой игры.

Покупать игру, конечно, ради часа-половины игры в неё не лучшая затея, но если игра уже завалялась у вас в библиотеке или же вам её подарили, то не стоит о ней забывать.

Игра на пару раз. 5/10. Красиво. Не затягивает.
