Am I the only one who likes this?
I'm at the third page I think, I have unlocked the fourth difficulty so far and I have enjoyed it, perhaps it's my awesome metal music along with soft country. I've been reading the threads and it seems to me that I'm the only who enjoyed this and have no mouse problems whatsoever.

Still, with that said, are there more games like this? I've played audiosurf before but I prefer the arcadish action of Symphony with its simple ship customization system, even though I have to admit it can still be improved. I enjoyed the mini-bosses of Symphony and its flashy-graphics too.

A lot of us liked it when it came out, but there are a lot of problems that just made me at least stop playing -- impossible 4th boss, no random, weapon system is very clunky and so on, no way to kill music you don't have any more (and woe is you if you delete the music you RANDOMLY got as a boss!), etc etc

As for similar? Well the closest would be Beat Hazard, which is more like Asteroids than verticle shmup, but it's the only other music-generated shooter I know of.

I'm 26 hours in and I still play it almost on a daily basis. It's a really good game with awesome visuals and, of course, with a replayability as big as your music library. Absolutely perfect for a couple of tracks when you arrive from work! :)

I've heard people discussing about a bunch of problems the game apparently has, but I have no complains so far, except for a few minor details.

i've been playing only 6 hours but i like this gae so far. the only problem i have is from my side - i don't have many separate song, i usually listen to a whole album. an it is, as you can guess, longer than 10 minutes.
the game is relaxing, but with the right music it becomes quite challenging. so rock on and collect inspiration!

Glad to hear it! ;) By the way, we have 20-minute song support coming up in the latest beta, which should be up within a couple of days.

Thanks,

I just got this game and I'm already in love with it! Only thing I have issues with is the menu system being a bit clunky.

I seemed to have problems alt-tabbing to desktop, I truly hope that can be fix!

I'll like it even more when Last.FM scrobble update is out for it.

I grabbed it during the sale, and I've been playing it more or less non-stop since my inital purchase. I really love it. My *only* real complaint is that I wish they did more with the storyline! I had a lot of fun saving the composers and getting creeped out by the ominous figure. Maybe some future DLC options, Empty Clip? :)

I reccomend you to get beat hazard too, the complete pack, it's on offer right now. About the same or cheaper than symphony I think.

Hey Witch! Glad you like the storyline; we went with something a bit abstract and different. It's great to hear some people are digging it. :) As far as DLC, we have some good ideas but unfortunately just don't have time to put towards it in the coming months.

Cheers,
Francois

I love it ! The story is simple but an awesome idea. I beat the 4th boss today so i know it isnt impossible. Great fun and a huge encouragement in general to get new music or listen to more music !

Hey, that might actually bring me back to this game as well.

I was a bit cranky about not being able to play against some of my 11~14 minutes songs.
