What is Klang about?
Klang is an innovative take on traditional rhythm games that pushes the genre beyond pressing buttons to tempo into a world of fast-paced exploration, platforming and combat.
In Klang, players assume the role of a tuneblade-wielding, elite rave warrior on a quest to free himself from the shackles of Soundlord Sonus. Become one with the music as you battle your way through increasingly challenging levels, timing every action and attack to audio visual cues.
Set to the music of legendary EDM composer, bLiNd, Klang is an adrenaline rush sure to challenge even the most skilled of multitaskers.
A special kind of rhythm-based jump'n'run. Beautiful to look at with really great graphics and intermediate sequences, but at the same time challenging due to Quicktime events of different difficulty levels.
The game itself consists of stages that can be selected on a world map. The stages themselves consist of single maps of different lengths, sometimes peppered with deadly jump'n'run maneuvers, sometimes with tests of skill and reaction. Depending on time and/or score ranks from Triple-S to D are awarded. I myself tried the game at GamesCom 2016 with X360 controller and keyboard. With both the control is intuitive and hardly needs an explanation - I personally get along better with the good, old keyboard, but everyone has to find out for himself.
What else is important in a rhythm game? What was that all about? oh yes, the soundtrack!
It was produced by an artist named bliNd and consists of a stately collection of 34 EDM tracks of different subgenres. Fits very well to the visual design of the game and if you like the music, you can buy it as DLC with the game (available as MP3 and FLAC).
Summary: A game with a concept that doesn't cross your path very often nowadays. The combination of bouncing, jumping (even wall jumping) and in-time key tapping is really worth a look. The visual turnover is top and the replay value is there. I can't say anything about the length of the game - as of now - yet, but I can recommend game and music ;)
In the Sale Must-Have and who has a heart for Indie developers buys it for the full price. But 15€ do not hurt anybody ;)
