This is one of the weirdest things I've played in a while. Basically you just toss together some sequencer songs to go with a funky story about love, robots, and body-less space dogs. It tells you that you're the best and by the end you've made a little album. I really can't fault it for being exactly what it is and it does kind of share the joy of creating music (no actual talent required).

This isn't a game, its more of a virtual drug trip, and trust me its addicting! Imagine everything you've ever wanted in a video game.... and this is probably cooler. Make music. Jam with a welsh corgie. Get a robot band back together. SAVE THE COSMOS WITH YOUR FUNKY BEATS! ect. If you like making electronic music with your best friend (The immortal, all-knowing god of MUSIC!!!!) then play this game and begin saving the universe with musics and stuff!

A strange little game that reminds me of an old Casio keyboard I played with when I was a kid. I didnt really make 'real' music, except in my head. Here too... I think a real musician could probably make something of this, but I can at least pretend I am DJ Batman for a little while -_-

As to the plot, I think it is over the top silly, and it is a 'charming' feature of the game. It definitely doesnt take itself seriously, and that is good.

I got this with a half off coupon and I think if you can get it in a bundle or for ~1-2$US then you are going to have a nice little distraction. 6.5/10

Kind of like playing with a keyboard or a synthesizer but way more fun.
There are visuals tha go along with the beat you make which just adds to the experience.
The story is silly, the characters are silly, and it's less of a game than it is a musical sandbox.
It really is a blast just to mess around with and see what you can create.

Not really a game and more like a toy, but an entertaining one at that. I felt like I was on another planet and the experience sure was trippy.

Cosmic DJ is less of a game and more of a toybox. By simply pressing four keys at different intervals, you can generate simple 2-measure sequences of electronic music in 4/4. It sounds basic, but with its variety of different instruments (drum kits, synthesizers, vocoders, odd samples, and many others), grid-based editing, and post-play remixes, anyone can make a song that can range anywhere between decent to amazing.

The presentation style is absurd and comical. The vivid colors, animations, and effects can probably be described better by video gameplay rather than this review. I found the dialogue to be humorous, but could be considered strange or obnoxious.

I wouldn't recommend this to a general audience, but it does have a very strong recommendation to anyone who likes electronic music, unique atmospheres, or just something completely different.

This. Game. Is. AWESOME.
Basicaly you get to make all kinds of wacky music and then when your done the game remixes it and while you listen to the remix you get to make waky galactic COVER ART THATS RIGHT SPAM THE DOG ON A SKATEBOARD STAMP. EVEN BETTER YOU GET TO EXPORT THOSE SIK BEETS DUD SO NEXT TIME YOUR AT YOUR HOUSE PARTY YOU CAN START BLASTING YOUR GALACTIC MUSIC.

This is so......................weird. I don't know where to start. It's a fun little game to just ♥♥♥♥ around on. You can get extremely creative tho, so there's that. Oh, and the game let's you save your own beats to make tracks and put them in mp3 format. Cool, huh?

To be honest, I wouldn't have bought this game if it weren't on sale. Besides that, this game/music maker is FANTASTIC. I would have never thought that I would be making some sick beats if it weren't for this! Good game/music maker! :D
11/10

Cosmic DJ is, all things considered, indeed more of a toy than a proper game but it's a pretty fun one.
As the titular protagonist, your task is to help people and fight bad vibes by filling a bar, you do so adding instruments to the track that's playing thus creating your own songs.

PROS:

-while extremely simple,the gameplay is very fun

-nonsensical yet entertaining story

-top notch sound (created by you aswell)

-good amount of different instruments

-intuitive controls,whether tapping or using a grid it's easy to choose instruments,their tone and when they'd appear

-charming graphics, they're simple overall but there's nice little touches, like the various instruments changing the scene whenever they're active during the track

-good sense of humour through the whole game

CONS:

-very simple gameplay, you can just click randomly and win, if you're so inclined

-very short, if you try and make some decent music it'd take you about an hour and a half

-screen flashing is sometimes overdone

Overall I found Cosmic DJ to be a fun albeit limited game: creating your tracks is an interesting experience and it surely tickled my creative side while the funny story was enough to carry the game through its duration.
For 80 cents on sale I think this'd be an interesting experience for most people, even more so if you're interested in music.

I feel like the devs put heart and hardwork into this title, even if it's a simple DJ game.

There isn't much there, but you feel it. You feel like there is.
