Early Access Review
I find this game really relaxing to play. I get to enjoy my favorite music while racing down a roadway filled with rhythmically placed obstacles. This definitely looks a bit nicer than the original.
I like that the scoreboard in the corner shows you how you are currently doing relative to other people that have scored well at your exact location in the course. I also get the opportunity to try to compete against myself to better my score.
I see people complaining about the lack of penalty for messing up, but, at least in "mono" the goal is to maximize your score, and you'll be able to tell how badly you messed up by how your score compares to others who played. Plus, hitting spikes isn't necessary failing, depending on what you're trying to do.
I agree with the criticism that there's not all that much direction as to what to do, but there is an explanation on the loading screen for each level and it didn't take too much for me to understand how to improve my score by reading that.
