Literally the only game out of my nearly 300 titles that I regret purchasing. Bought it at its release in 2009 and to this date I still rue that decision. The game does not syncronize to your music library at all, almost seemingly launching rays for you to catch at random. The developers swiftly abandoned the project after releasing it, so any and all hope of improvement was lost long, long ago. Take your $5 and spend it on a game that actually functions. Maybe 5 apps for your phone. Or a burrito. It's your call, but definitely heed my warning, friends.

This game was my first mistake. I was caught up in the moment, having just enjoyed Audiosurf, one of the first indy games on steam. I thought this would be similar, I was wrong. This game is barebones, and the music doesn't really correspond to the gameplay at all.

This game was my first mistake on steam, don't make it one of yours.

Don't get suckered in by the video provided.

This game is literally flawed on it's major selling point: using your library of music.

The game was deisgned at a point in time before new Windows 7 came to the market, so it was clearly designed when Vista came out. The menu system that is meant to search out you music is entirely and utterly flawed. You can get it to work, it is just difficult, and will not do expansive libraries/folders for whatever reasoning, there is the limitation in file formats, etc. Maybe it works on Vista flawlessly, but the Windows market is already mainly on Windows 7 or Windows 8 these days for the majority.

The rest of the game works for me just fine, however, being limited to the game's default tracks makes replayability horrid and as is the game doesn't have any 'jazz' to its visuals and you just rotate your sphere of spheres on an axis to match incoming rays. Shallow as could be.

As I stated back in January in the community discussion for this game, unless you are looking for ideas from a dev perspective and find this on sale for under $1, I wouldn't recommend this game.

It sits in my library as a reminder to me, review and find solid ground for each purchase before making the purchase.
