"Guys, I freaking love this game. Seamlessly synchronized and filled to the brim with charm and personality, Tadpole Treble is unquestionably a must-have."

"Tadpole Treble is one of the sweetest games I’ve ever played, despite it being wall-to-wall terror for the poor tadpole."

"It’s the epitome of what an aesthetic and music-focused game should be: simple gameplay made fun by good game design and an outstanding soundtrack."
-Steam reviewer Mo05eman

From the creators of the hit webcomic Brawl in the Family comes the delightfully musical adventure game Tadpole Treble!

As Baton, you’ll literally be “playing along” with the game’s music as you dodge past predators and obstacles who take the place of the notes for that level’s song. Avoid enemies and hit percussive notes on the beat to accumulate points and fill your Treble Charge to blast through anything in your path.

Tadpole Treble features 30 original music compositions, 13 levels, and 5 boss battles. In addition to the story mode, the game includes bonus content such as unlockable music, a large bestiary, game commentaries, and online leaderboards for every level. Best of all is the robust Composition Mode which lets players create their own original levels and music!

Tadpole Treble reviews and comments

Tadpole treble is a cute game for the youngest and the youngest this game by its graphics and its absence of violence is intended especially for young players. Dads, moms, if you don't know which game to put in the hands of your young child (from 5 years old), I advise you this one. The story is cute. Mommy frog lays eggs from or out of tadpoles. One of these tadpoles is called baton and is reckless, result, he is away from his mum. Help him to find her while avoiding the dangers that a young tadpole may face. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=797302642 to discover my entire test on tadpole treble.

In itself, it is only a simple, often frustrating game Of Skill based on Evasion and Collecting in a vertical direction (Hugo salutes). However, the musical Accompaniment is so optimally and creatively integrated into the Game that you get excited quite quickly. Music Lovers get their Money's worth and if you still associate this with an Addiction to Challenges and Archiving Successes, you can't go wrong here. Pro:-Creative, humorous and demanding-varied and mostly high-quality Music-Passendes Artdesign-Largely varied Levels with different Events-Bullfrog with "voice" as from Banjo-Kazooie Contra:-At Least for me quite a lot Frustmoments-Not quite exact Control-In the Long run by the simple Game principle somewhat monotonous Very nice for the End of the Evening.

I compose music, I play several instruments and, in my opinion, this game has some faults to high expectations: it would Not call it a game of giving with the rhythm but a game of dodging the rhythm; It has a difficulty that does not appeal to the adult public; The levels created by the community are inaccessible, which is a great loss for its powerful editor... For all this I have decided to apply for a refund. So Why do I recommend it?...----------------------------------------------------------------------------+ The fact that he misinterpreted the publicity of the article does not make it a bad product. + Has The grace of a Disney play and a Nintendo game. + The Simple history and art will be adorable for anyone who experiences it, no matter how macho. + The Music is a geniality, sticky and passionately elaborated. + There Is great variety in each level. + Your level editor is attractive even for experienced composers. In Short: Tadpole Treble offers an entertaining way of appreciating the world of music; Enjoying the songs of the level while watching the notes fit. ------------------------------------------------------------Concluding... Attention that this is not any software but a very detailed project, realized with affection, that I traveled a great way to share his enthusiasm. For infants, a challenge and a way to live the music. For adults, a way to live the music. Definitely this game awaken in very young minds the interest in this beautiful art.
