    Yeah, played it a little this morning. It's got a great vibe and art style, and the gameplay reminds me a little of Rhythm Heaven. The load screens are loathsome, though.

    Where rockets don't fall.
    I usually don't like rhythm games, but saving the city from evil mimes sounds awesome.

    Is anyone else finding that the tutorials are a little vague? Half the time, you really aren't sure what exactly the game wanted from you in the tutorial, but once you start playing the level, it makes more sense. That tends to make you want to start the level over sometimes, once you figure it out, to get a better score. The art style reminds me of Zoo Keeper, which was among the first games I owned for the system. Still enjoy a little ZK every once in a while.....

    You know, I actually prefer chip tune music on the DS. It certainly saves a lot of space on the ROM when they don't use streaming music. I have this amplified speaker system ( http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.12285 ) and the chip tunes sound much clearer than compressed audio through them.

    Superb art style. Why isn't they more of this kind of 2D work on the DS. I agree with the Zoo Keeper reference.
    Excellent game. Even for a chap with no rhythm what so ever I got into the groove after listening to the tunes. Slow loading but the saves work on the Supercard DSONEi EOS SP1. Only cart I've had chance to test.

    Worth a look.

    Yeah, the tutorials aren't even tutorials... they are failure buzzers to make you feel sad!

    Other than that, this game is great. It's a small file size, it's got some fun electro-techno music, it's got a great art style, and it's kind of like Rhythm Heaven but just a touch bit easier so you don't fling your DS at the wall.

    Definite keeper on my card.

    1 of the laid off makers of the game here.
    At least some people likes our stuff apparently, which makes me happy.

    Jeklnoo: No, no, doesn't have anything to do with that, we were laid off when we finished the game. The sales wouldn't helped us much.
    I was graphic designer on the game, if you want to see some graphics from me: my sketchbook on conceptart.

    WOW. I'm simply blown away by your sketchbook. Both in its variety of styles and quality. I'm sure you will get another designer job soon.

    I love this picture.

    I watched some stuff on your sketchbook Hungryan. You are an AMAZING artist!!!! The anatomic sketches are of an outstanding and rare quality. I'm impressed as hell (and a bit jealous)

    EDIT: Bloody hell, only now I noticed your Linocuts!!! Where does one get inspiration like that???? And your style is so diverse it almost makes me dizzy.


    Wow
