Symphony is one of the few titles of the music-driven genre. To those not yet familiarized with this style, it consists of procedurally generated levels, and this procedure utilizes songs chosen by the user to create the levels. If you use the same song, it will always create the same level (if the difficulty chosen is the same, obviously).
The game is superb. The graphics and level of content in this game will keep you busy for a LOT of time. There is a lot to unlock and do in this game: you beat songs to get items, then you need to collect Kudos and Inspiration to unlock and upgrade these items. There are a lot of unlockables in this game and each song will unlock something;
The game extremely enjoyable and relaxing at earlier difficulties and VERY challenging at the hardest ones. The leaderboard system is awesome, it takes into consideration every aspect of your performance, including your ship power (the higher the power the less points you get). You can (and should) make BUILDS in this game using the items for optimal performance when beating songs.
Controls are straight-forward, you can even put auto-fire on separate weapons in your ship meaning it will fire without the need to press the left mouse button.
There is a bug which causes the game to crash when analyzing any MP3 songs, I have never seen anyone else with this issue though. All other music file extensions run just fine.
Last but not least, another cool aspect of the game: To unlock difficulties you need to beat "demons" which randomly invade your songs. Those are pretty cool to fight (and challenging, too).
