New Game from OneMrBean!

March 26th, 2014


Our good pal OneMrBean just launched the Kickstarter for his new game, Choice Chamber!


It is crowdsourced gameplay on Twitch and stars a dude with a giant hammer. We don't know what's going on, but we like it!

Let us know what you think.

March 10, 2014 Quick Fix

March 10th, 2014

Greetings Soundodgerers!

I've just patched up a little bug from the previous update that let you 100% levels even after getting hit a bunch. While this made some feel like super stars, others couldn't bear the dishonesty of it all, including myself. So that's been fixed!

If you're just learning about the update, it's pretty snazzy! I pushed out a free DLC pack to all players featuring music from a bunch of other indie games and musicians. You'll find the levels in the User Levels page of the game.

More information on the artists, their websites, affiliated games, etc can be found at this link! Go support the artists, too, as they donated these tracks for you all to enjoy!

I've also added Smooth Listening mode, which allows you to get hit without receiving an audio penalty. You can enable it via Options > Audio Settings > Smooth Listening. I tried to keep the scoring as similar to the original mode as possible, but it might be off by a little here and there. I've had a lot of players tell me they wanted something like this, so I'm glad to be able to offer an option that can be toggled based on preference.

ALSO Soundodger+ happens to be on sale at 50% off for the next few days, so if you know a friend who might be interested, now is the time to share with them!

Thanks to everyone who's been a part of this great experience! You're the best.

Love and Homing Bullets,

PS Go thank Adult Swim Games for making this all possible. They're good people too.

I barely started playing and I'm already in love with Soundodger+, maybe because I'm addicted to music driven games, but this one is really special! The soundtrack within the game allows you to play what looks like a campaign, unlocking new tracks with your progress, and the music is great, there's even a zen mode to make it even more relaxing! There's also a feature where you can input your music and the game generates a maze for you to play while listening to your favourite songs, how awesome is that? Totally worth it's full price!

Soundodgers+ is an exellent update that makes a good game even better. It combines the best aspects of bullet-hell type games with a great soundtrack and hyper-clean visuals that are absolutely stunning on high resolutions. Not only that, but it has a built-in level editor allowing users to download and make their own patterns to music. It also has the ability to auto-generate to songs, but it's not as good as other games in the genre like Symphony.

That said, I would highly recommend this game to people who are fans of bullet-hell, music games or both. If you really want to try it before you buy it, there's a flash version on the Adult Swim website which will give you most of the experience, sans about half of the tracks and custom song support.

The sequel to the semi-popular flash game Soundodger on Adult Swim Games, Soundodger+ offers much more in terms of difficulty and replayability.
If you haven't already, check out the original on Adult Swim, here (it has half of the levels, and the same gameplay): http://games.adultswim.com/soundodger-puzzle-online-game.html

Though it may be easy to jump right to the level editor or auto-gen mode, Soundodger+ is mostly about its single-player experience. There are many edge-of-your-seat moments where focus and concentration are key. This may not be apparent from the first few levels or trailer; the game starts off slow, easing you into the later levels with simplified versions of the patterns; it feels a little too slow moving in, and you need to beat ~10 of these levels before the advanced levels can be played. This is my only real gripe though; the level of polish and love put into the later levels is evident in spades. (Look for advanced levels indicated by a black background.)

The quality of music is also exceptional. If you peruse the Indie section of Steam often, there's a good chance that you'll recognize some of the artists; Disasterpeace, Sonic (also known as Jasper Byrne, who did all of Lone Survivor [music too]), Austin Wintory, Danny Baranowsky, Lifeformed, and Bill Kiley. That's not to say that the others not mentioned are bad; far from it. You may recognize Ghost Kollective, but other names such as Mike Forst, D. WIGHT, Anoctave and Bean proved to be exceptional with the tracks they provided.

Next, the editor. Soundodger+ has plenty of very interesting mechanics; you can slow down and invert time, fill the screen with bullets, and control the movement of the outside "enemies." All of this can be accessed and used in the editor. Though initially appearing dense and convoluted, the editor makes a ton more sense after viewing the available online tutorials, and it can be a blast not only to play finished levels, but also to watch said levels as well. Be warned, Soundodger+ only accepts tracks encoded at 44.1 kHz; I ran into the problem of not being able to use some tracks I wanted to because of this.

Finally, the Auto-Gen mode. I put this at the bottom because it's easily the weakest part of Soundodger+. Levels are typically created on a scale of how loud the music is, similar to Audiosurf. If you don't have loud tracks, you'll end up with a level that's too easy, on the scale of the early campaign levels. The levels generated often don't make sense either; the game creates a pattern only when there's a spike in the noise, causing bullets to fire off at seemingly random times. And again, the Auto-Gen mode only works for songs encoded at 44.1 kHz, same as the editor.

TL;DR: Soundodger+ is highly recommended, especially if you're looking for something in the vein of Bit.Trip, Audiosurf, Sound Shapes or 140. Do not buy for the auto-gen; rather, buy for the single player experience.

This game is a more active way of listening to some nice electronic music. It's playable with only one hand (either WASD, arrows, or mouse), and that's nice if you're on a laptop or a plane. It's not a deep game by any means, but it is a nice way to kill 30 minutes or so.
