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!

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.

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).


My scores:

Graphics: 10/10
Controls: 10/10
Content: 10/10
Story: 8/10
Replayability: 10/10
Bugs: -1

Overall: 47/50
