Frederic: Resurrection of Music is a short and simple game which employs a fundamental mechanic that will have you using your keyboard like a piano. The game’s best attribute is definitely its innovative feel (even though it borrows heavily from Guitar Hero and the like); and I also thought the soundtrack was pretty enjoyable. Unfortunately, many of the other areas of the game are somewhat lacking.

There is a story and there are cutscenes; some of it is OK and mildly amusing, some of it is cringe-worthy. I wonder if perhaps the game would have been better off without any of that. However, the game is already incredibly short, so I suppose the story helps to add a little fluff. There are only 9 songs in the campaign, and even on the hardest difficulty available it shouldn’t take that long to learn them and to beat them. Then there are also a small handful of bonus songs to unlock in the “arena” mode, but it remains a rather short game. There is, however, a score system, so there is some incentive to replay levels to try to better your score.

The heart and soul of the game is in the gameplay and the music. The central mechanic of the gameplay is quite novel and I found it to be quite refreshing to play something a little bit different. The main way to play is to use your keyboard to strike keys as the notes move across the screen, in a very similar fashion to Guitar Hero. I found this to be challenging and wildly fun. If you find yourself getting your fingers mixed up too much, you can also use the mouse to simply click the notes. This will make the game marginally easier, but (in my opinion) also a little less fun.

As for the music: I enjoyed the soundtrack very much. I even caught myself humming some of the songs in the shower and the car. When you own the game on Steam, you get a complimentary OST in the “music” tab of your library, so you can listen to the songs through Steam even without the game running.

Frederic: Resurrection of Music could use work in some other areas, certainly, but I felt the fresh gameplay and nice soundscape were more than enough to create an enjoyable experience— albeit a short one. I highly recommend this game for anyone who is thirsting to play something that is a little different and innovative.

Frederic: Resurrection of Music is a rhythm game in the tone of Guitar Hero, but you play a piano instead. You are the reanimated corpse of the famous composer Frederic Chopin and you travel around the world having musical duels with stereotyped characters and did I mention remixed music?

The Pros:
  • Fun Story and Cutscenes - The game features a bit over an hour of cutscenes as you progress through the story and encounter all sorts of musicians. The animations are choppy and the voice acting amateurish, but the end result is fun, enjoyable and very stereotypical. Don't expect this game to be serious, 'cause it's not - and that's great!

  • Great Music! - The most important aspect of a rhythm game is the music, and Frederic doesn't disappoint! There are a total of 12 tracks you can play - 9 story related and 3 bonus. All of them are reinterpretations of the original Chopin's plays, but in contemporaneous styles: electro, reggae, country, R&B, you name it. The sound quality is also superb and the music is very catchy.

  • Complimentary and DRM-Free OST - The game gives you the tracks in the game for free as high bit-rate MP3 files, so you can listen to them anytime, anywhere. A good gesture from the developers! Kudos!

  • Gameplay Choices - The game lets you choose whether to play this game using the keyboard or the touchscreen! That's right! Native touchscreen support for the tablet users who want to be the next virtuoso! For the majority of us who will use the keyboard anyways, it's still very enjoyable, and as a pro-tip from me, change the controls from AWSEDRF to ZSXDCFV. The new spacing of the keys resembles much better with piano keys, so you accidentally press the wrong button much less often.

The Cons:
  • Moderate learning curve. - The songs are relatively very easy, and the songs are repeated segments that you will most likely have in muscle memory by your second playthrough. At first, however, it seems really hard, especially with the default controls, but after you play it for a while it will come to you.

  • Level Rating System - I have no idea what the game wants from you when it gives you the stars at the end of the level. I found myself ending up with one star despite having a 98% accuracy.

  • Almost no difference between difficulties - There are four difficulty steps: Too Easy, Normal, Hard, Chopin. The last two have a negligibly small amount of extra notes compared to the others, and the only real difference between them is the number of points you get for hitting the notes and the amount of notes you are allowed to miss, as the harder the difficulty, the more notes it takes to fill the progress bar and the more it will decrease when failing to press a note. On Chopin, you are expected to have a 90-95% hit rate to pass, which is not hard after you get used to it.

This game is a good rhythm game, albeit short, but features original, awesome music and an interesting concept. Recommended for those who like remixes and comedy indie games.

If you love music games get this game, if not, don't. It tries to be Guitar Hero with a piano except GH has better music and controls. The animation is okay, but the story is just lame. I'm really on a fence about this game, neither like or dislike it. 5/10

This game is just like guitar hero , but for a piano.
The cartoons are awesome , and the soundtrack incredible . If you´re a piano musician , this game will sure entertain you , since you get to play as one of the best composers of all time Choplin.
You can use your keyboard , your mouse or connect a piano keyboard to play. (using the mouse isn´t easy)
