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.

Quite a simple game, but I do not recommend this for the price it is offering. I'm not exactly sure how this game encorporates your own music into it because it seems to me the projectiles appear randomly and the music just acts as background. Either way, it's Atari inspired, the only purpose of this game is to score the highest score possible. It requires quite the flexibility. There's a glitch in the game though, when the flower hits a certain size, the projectiles vanish for no reason as if it hit an object. I do not recommend this game at the price it's offering, it's lacking in many areas and the mouse control gets tiring and not relaxing. There are better Atari-like games out there.
