This game is actually pretty damn good for an indie game in Early Access, no less. I just have to give credit where credit is due here.
When I first picked up this game, I expected it to be another half-decent "play to your own music" game that's being put on the Steam category, so as a music addict, I had to buy it and see what this game was capable of. When I picked out my first track and as soon as the game finished calculating the audio, the gameplay itself began. And needless to say, my expectations were passed.
Melody's Escape is a sort of "rhythm platformer" as I like to call it which reminds me of a rather underrated game of the same genre called "Vib-Ribbon" for the PS1. It's just as easy to play, but it's also as hard to master.
The only buttons in this game are the WASD keys, shich are used to input multiple actions according to the direction and color of the obstacle. You break orbs, hop across gaps, break through walls, and even fly with stylish beauty. The game runs at a perfect and smooth 60 FPS, which perfectly compliments the game's vivid and colorful graphics.
The first thing that caught my attention when I played my first song was how accurate the obstacles were to the tempo and beat. This is by far one of, if not the best audio detections in a procedrual music game that I've seen.
If that's not reason enough to get this game, it does have Steam Workshop support to add some neat little aesthetic touches.
Overall, is Melody's Escape worth your time? Yes. Especially if you love music.
