It's fast, tight, engaging and fun. The simple graphics and aesthetics makes this game feel and play great along with the music. If you're one of those that like a challenge, and don't mind trying multiple times to learn how the levels are built up, this is probably a safe bet for you. I, however, am far too lacking in skills to play this. I almost managed to play an hour before I threw in the towel and had to focus on preserving my mental health.

Great game, but far too difficult for me.

The Dark Souls of rythm games, spiced with nauseatingly epileptic visuals that interfere WAY too much with gameplay.
I'd stick with the version/-s that support 2-player mode.

This game is some kind of pong mixed with acid, all you have to do is repel the little squares to get points and form a rhythm while you do so, there's also a boss fight in each one of the 3 stages. It's very relaxing at first, but it gets really hard and frustrating as you progress.
Grab it when it's on sale.
