Symphony reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Symphony is like a cheesy Remake of Audio surf with Guns-just not so great. Pro:-You can choose your own Soundtrack. Contra:-How can a Game get boring so quickly? -The Opponents are always the same, the same thing always happens. -The unlockable Weapons are all unsuitable. There is therefore a lack of Incentives. -The Menu is confusing. -What happens on screen causes Epilepsy ... Or at least a Headache. Verdict: Played, laughed, deleted.

Successful music game, not quite as overwhelming in colors and Effects as Beat Hazard, but just as hard When it comes to fast music, no matter what Genre. Upgrades for Difficulty Degree and your own Ship are now part of the good Tone for Music Games of this Kind and are also available here in Abundance. Very interesting is the "Campaign" (demon bosses at certain Intervals), which give an idea of the Whiff of an overall story. With the corresponding Music, Symphony is very pleasant, especially due to the built-in Continuous Fire function. Unfortunately, all with the Mouse and not with the Gamepad, so the sofa factor is missing. Overall but clear Recommendation to see your own Music Library in a completely different way;)

Space Invaders meets ... Yes, on what exactly? Your own Music Collection that is about to be destroyed by a Demon? At least so similar ... but who cares so much? There are various Weapons including Upgrades to destroy the approaching "enemy" ships that try to steal the Notes, and every now and then to say a Demon As An end opponent. And that's with your own Music ... Depending on the different Track, the Color and Speed change. Opponents come from the left, sometimes from the right and sometimes directly from the top. 4 Weapons can be installed on the Ship with different Functions; One Weapon shoots only at the right right beat, another rests only after a few Seconds of Charging. The Songs you have inserted yourself are loaded quickly. Overall, the Game also runs fluidly, especially in hectic Instances. Only my Mouse sometimes has dropouts and my Ship is then either on the far left or far right on the Edge. But that's because of my Mouse. There are different levels of Difficulty (the exact Number I do not know grade, believe it was 6). The first Degree is actually stupid and desolate ..., just dodge a little and with Continuous Fire everything wood away. The second is a bit more difficult ... but from the third becomes really Interesting. I can recommend the Game; Especially for those of You who would like to hear your own Muck while zooming. It's an entertaining Pleasure ... More than a few Rounds play the fewest ... but it has a very high Replayability Score. Similar to the CIV series ... Only one More round ... ^^ Conclusion: For a quick Combination in Between including your own Music, which runs very smoothly and also looks very good graphically, the Game is recommended. However, long-term Motivation is lacking ...
The most enjoyable play-your-own-music game since Audiosurf. Looks fantastic, plays crazy, sounds great because it's you favorite songs. Also, I have to mention it, there are issues when you just can't spot enemies in all color explosions. I understand this is the style of the game, but sometimes it's really difficult to play because you can't see shit. Still, I'd heartily recommend this game if you just want something unique.
A simple but brilliant idea close to Audiosurf. There are lots of tricks to get you hooked: achievements, rare pick-ups and upgraders, etc. And the basic idea works great – the game really changes with different tracks, wow! All in all, Symphony is a very creative gaming experience with clever gaming features and just a unique experience.
Well worth the hype. If you like classic arcade style shooters, you will definitely love this. There are some minor issues with syncing (like the game seems to fail at reading Asian languages, so song titles will be messed up), but overall each level will indeed be unique and that is why Symphony was created in the first place. Tons of unlockable content and weapons add to the overall quality of the game, so it's one of a kind experience and you should definitely try it.

This title will turn your music collection into a game. And it is fabulous! Symphony will turn any track into a neon lightshow , which will actually prevent you from seeing what's going on. The intensity of the song changes the behavior and speed of enemies. The gameplay is something like a scroll shooter, but I think that people don't come these games for the gameplay, they just like the idea and the idea is great.
