Simple platformer with colorful graphics. Everything is moving with the music and it's quite fun. The main story is for 1-2 hours, but if you add to this three mirror levels it takes a lot more time.

A great little platformer with a high emphasis on music!
Verdict - 8.0/10

Scroll to the bottom for an 'Overall' on the game.


Gameplay - 8/10:

There's not really much to say about this game to be honest, it's your typical simple styled plat-former but with a high emphasis on timing and as a result the music that is played. Everything in the world moves to the beat of the music, effectively you could probably complete parts of this game with your eyes closed; judging it by the beat of the music. I did really enjoy the plat-forming of this game though, I just wish that it was longer with some more mechanics added in.


Audio - 8/10:

This is where the game really shines, like I said before, everything in the world is tied in with the music, it all flows really well and the music itself sounds really bloody cool as well. It's techno-style music... Kind of hard to describe but below you'll find a Gameplay and Commentary on my channel so you can hear it there anyways (Coming soon...).


Overall - 8.0/10:

Even though this game was very short I really enjoyed it, the sound absolutely makes this game what it is and the visuals just look really crisp. The developer(s) obviously knew what kind of game they wanted to create and they made it. I'd say it's more of an art piece than a game! Unfortunately I completed the normal mode in about 45 minutes making it pretty a pretty pricey 'bang for buck' when it comes to games.

This is a challenging platformer with some of the best music I've heard in a game since things like 'Sword and Sworcery EP' and 'Fez'. The music itself as well as some of the visuals are quite reminiscent of 'Fez' although they are very different games.

When you first open the game, you are treated to the music straight away. There is no menu or text, other than the large '140' in the middle of the screen. Upon pressing any button you are thrust into the game itself, still with no instructions. This isn't a game for those new to the platforming genre, but those who have played the simplest flash game will easily be able to understand what to do.

Each level of the game has it's own music to match the obstacles present there. You will need the music on, as all the obstacles are synced up to the beat and mastering the rhythms can mean the difference between life and death. At the end of each level there is a boss, it will challenge the skills you have learnt through the level leading up to it. These bosses aren't the typical 'fights' you may be used to from other games, but I find them to be fairer and more challenging than most.

I absolutely adore the visual style of the game and the way it matches the music so well. The simplest touches can effect the game massively and when you first play it can be overwhelming, especially when you die. The patterns in the background that seemingly dance to the music fit the rest of the levels perfectly and aren't distracting or annoying, even when you are stuck on a particularly difficult section.

Overall this is one of the best platformers I have ever played, the controls are extremely responsive and I never felt like I died because it was the game's fault. For the price there is the perfect amount of content in my opinion. With just enough challenge and variety to give you a few hours of gameplay, and even more if you want all the achievements.

I would give '140' 5 stars, 10/10, 8/8 or whatever rating system you prefer, I love it. I will certainly be buying the soundtrack and I hope a sequel will be made one day. Great game!

Its a super simple idea executed with an unprecedented display of style. Worth paying full price, even if it is a bit short. The quality here is great! I'd have easily put 5 to 10 dollars in quarters into an arcade machine to play it through. In fact, I might build myself a machine just so I can put this on it and play from time to time.
