About the Game

Your music is under attack, you must liberate it!

A mysterious entity is absorbing and corrupting your music before your very eyes. You must battle through your own song collection, discover items, customize your ship and fight boss enemies to liberate the Symphony of Souls and reclaim your music!

Symphony is one of the most music-driven games ever made. In this vertical shooter, re-experience each of your songs as it becomes a unique battlefield driven by intensity and tempo.

Your music collection is now an item collection! Each of your songs contains an item you can discover, equip and upgrade. Fully customize your ship to reach score targets, upgrade items and unlock new difficulty levels.

Showcase your skill. Symphony's innovative per-song leaderboard rewards you more, when you dominate with less powerful weapons. Find the loadout that suits your style and show what you can do!

This is another one of those games that I picked up on sale with a little bit of apprehension, but was pleased with the overall enjoyment of the game. It combines your music with a fast paced, challenging, customizeable, and enjoyable gameplay where you progress through an admittedly sketchy storyline.

If you like music and frequently have a handful of minutes that isn't enough to invest in a "real" game, but too much to let idle, then this is a fantastic game for you. Caution, after about three songs, you will start to cry -- blinking is a gift. Don't over estimate it.

Symphony is another way of enjoying your music. This addictive and engaging casual shooter uses your music to configure the levels which you play. The game on itself is not very long... the story mode, at least, but as long as you want to just shoot something without complications and good challenge (do not forget the point of having your music integrated in the game), this little jewel will make wonders, so the real life of symphony is as long as big is your music library.

The mechanical is quite simple. You choose one song, and then, depending of its characteristics it throws to you to beat (and to strike you down mercilessly) one thing or other, and while you shoot and dodge cool lights you must collect inspiration points which raise your marker and at the same time repair your.... spaceship ?

I bought it just for experimenting and i'm far beyond than pleased with it.

+ Clearly made by music lovers
+ Visually appealing
+ Blends well with a large library of music

- A bit repetitive in the later difficulty levels
