I rate the game, Symphony, 3.5/5. Pretty good.
A pretty good 2-D Galaga style shooting game which uses your own mp3 music files to control the number of enemies on screen and the speed with which they move. There are as many levels as you have mp3 files to play but despite that, the game becomes highly repetitive early on as the enemies only have a few patterns to their movement. There are several difficulty levels which help keep the game from becoming frustrating but the game's story kept me wanting to complete it for no other reason than so that I would not be pestered by the game's random boss fights. The game's goofy story is really more of an encumbrance to this game but it is still quite fun to play in between times. It would be more fun if one could change the game's somber, sad menu music (ironic for a game based on your music files) but the game's neon-saturated graphics are beautiful and impressive and the game runs well with no major bugs and few minor ones. Pretty good overall but not solidly good. The game doesn't seem to know quite what to do with some songs which sometimes makes for odd gaming experiences.
