Such fun! I finally found a game to play, while pondering what game I'm going to play (and this can be a difficult decision.
It's a lazer, stroble lights, everything keeps moving kinda game.

I think it's at its best, when you put your headphones on, turn down all the lights and just get lost in the left-righ-left-righ-left-left, dang there goes my ship over the border feeling. :-)
Since you've got three ships to crash or navigate over the edges one lost ship doesn't damage your mood to badly either. So it makes for a great time-waster with a simple enough gameplay, but even more challenging modes if you're in it to win it.
Handling of the ships with a keyboard feels good and it's just as responsive as you'd imagine it, meaning you know when you've pressed the button to late and won't blame the game for lag.

If you're prone to get headaches or easily feel nauseous, than it's probably not for you, but if you every wished to have an arcade machine with a simple "get the ship from a to b without hitting stuff" game in your own living room, well, that's the game for you. For less than a buck it's definitely worth the money, if only you could play your own music while playing I'd even be willing to pay another buck, but well I guess you can't have it all.

People compare this game to Super Hexagon, and I can kinda see that. Yeah, in the sense that after awhile the flashing lights and the constant hard hitting music might overload your senses, as the game title suggests. But that's really where the similarities end. I like the challenge this game provides because I feel that it trains two parts of my reflexes I apparently lack as a gamer: Horizontal depth perception and pacing(in certain kind of stages). Like most kids who grew up on 3D platformers, you might be used to understanding the depth of what's in front of you no problem, especially since you're always adjusting some camera to make that more easy to digest. But the perspective this game throws at you requires a nice twist to plugging your head into some 3D game that not a lot of others require you to be able to work. That alone makes it a neat challenge 100%ing this game's achievements, and then there's pacing. The game might throw at you here and there a wave of blocks to weave in and out of or something, but without understanding the rhythm or how fast you're going you'll hit something every time, and I also enjoy that.

TLDR; the game's diabolical, unfair in some aspects, ♥♥♥♥s with your head after awhile and requires you to take breaks from it, and I love every second of it.

This game gets real challenging real quick. Great arcade style side to side, dodge this , pick up that, fast paced, oopps I just smashed my face into that wall game.The beats are nice and the levels are bright and pulsing( don't play in the dark and make sure to take breaks), playing it for extended periods of time I felt like my eyes might begin to melt.Super awsome game and cant beat the price. 8 / 10
