Totally Awesome ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This game is simply amazing! The gameplay combines platforming of old school games and the character swapping puzzle solving of The Lost Vikings. It does a great job of blending the Synthwave look and sound. It doesn’t feel like a typical rhythm game but you can tell everything is moving to the beat. And you are going to hear it a lot because some of the levels are brutal, haha. My favorite track is the the Red robot’s theme. I beat the first batch of levels, and I would love to see some more!

One of the best things about this game is the art! The chunky robots are a throw back to the kinds of games I grew up with and still enjoy. The levels are full of purples and flashes that fit the Synthwave look perfectly. The cutscenes are where things really shine, although it could have used more of them. I really enjoyed the story too!

Great game and I’d love to see more from it in the future!

Fantastic retro game

I’m really enjoying this game. The music has to be the best part of all! Some of the levels are tough to solve at first but then there is a pretty clear path. The cute scenes are funny if not a bit cheesy. I recommend it if you love the 80s and classic games! Edit: I just beat this game and I love the story! I’d love to see more levels added soon. New music would be really cool too. Great game, I highly recommend it!

I really dig this game

When you’re not bobbing your head to the beat, you’ll be scratching your head to solve the puzzles! The character swap mechanic coupled with the race for time makes for some really intense moments.
