Think of it as Rayman Legends for Wii, but underwater and with a higher emphasis on rhythm. The music is delightful and the game controls beautifully. (With the exception of dashing. It seems a little tricky to aim sometimes.)

All I can say is......groovy.

This is what happened when you mix beat into casual adventure video game.
You came out with this rocking game.

Man, my head keep bobbing while listening to the beat. I have become a real life Bobbleheads.
Truthfully, the game did bore me because yeah it's only a casual game but I did enjoy it.
Oh yeah, I really like the arts and extra too (Love seeing how the dev make this game from scratch).

I am surprised by how good this game is. It is a rhythm puzzle platforming game. It is really fun moving around with the great beat, and the puzzles are really good. I love how the game looks: colorful, smooth, and beautiful HD. The animations and controls are awesome. The story is very simple, but for this type of game, it is alright.

It is good for 5-6 hours of fun with possible replay value. Pick it up when it is on sale if you like rhythm, puzzle, or platforming games!

Beautiful graphics, great music and some really creative ideas but I can't recommend it due to quite a few bugs/glitches and the fact that the controls/mechanics of this game make me really angry whenever I try to play it.
