Okay so this... I mean, this is a GOOD game, and I can't even amend "for a rhythm game" to that. If you want to collect little blips and tap the button on specific beats, if you want to swim along collecting things, if you want to occasionally swim uphill against the difficulty curve, this is pretty strong.

It's not just that this is a good game though. It's a good controllable action cartoon, too. What you're here for is the soundtrack, which is astounding. Every level has music to itself, every music track piles atop the last in a kind of mountain of Fantastic Music that acts like a ladder which you climb to get MORE fantastic music.

(I know he's a day old but if Sonata doesn't show up in a particular end of year award field, I am deceased.)

I have the feeling doing all the "challenges" in this game would be extremely difficult and perhaps even tedious, so it's a good thing I don't do those. Tadpole Treble is a miracle because it Really Genuinely Works on just about every level it's trying for.

That said, the instant kills are a little, uh.... FREQUENT towards the end there.

Sword seemed to have most of the same opinions as me. That's not a surprise, I bought it after reading that writeup.
