This game is a great idea in itself! I've always wanted to see something like this. . . . it is essentially a sequencer built into a game. . . . Or maybe a game built around a sequencer? Whatever. . . . something like that. There's just the problem that there's only one level that's done in less than an hour. You only have to find a few samples in it to arrange them in your sequencer and once you have found them, you can start a small gig in an open-air studio. But that's all there is to it. There are also some other things I found (like an Amiga Workbench diskette. . . . . cool!), but I couldn't find any use for it. It would be great if you could create your own sequences and sounds with a drum computer and a synth! And instead of just finding sounds/samples, developers can also add virtual instruments. That would be so cool. . . I think the foundation is already there. So. . . the game lacks much. But since it's a great idea, a pretty cool artistic look/design and a low price, I can only give a thumbs up! If you are interested in making music, sequencers and such, I can recommend this game! But only for the price of 6, 99, because it's too short at the moment. But something seems to be coming. A subsequent DLC or
