Nice trippy haze of ludes. I think you can get arrested just for having this game on your device

That's intense. The colors and everything are making me feel woozy. Interesting game concept, I'm glad you guys made something original instead of copying another TD game or something

Welcome aboard.

You definitely has some interesting idea, a mix with Brain Age and rhythm games. In general, the execution is poor and it is a let down.

1. Sound department: the title voice is totally weird. The in game music is okay but it gets repetitive too quickly.

2. 3D is a nice idea but unfortunately I don't have any idea when to hit. I notice a line above the buttons but when I hit the button when the word hits the line, it says "Miss". There is absolutely zero visual clue when is the best time for hitting the word right.

3. Worst is the control. I don't know but most of the time, when I think I get the button, I get no response. I don't even know if I had pressed the wrong button or no button. Also, there seems to be a delay between button pressed. If the words come down is successive, it is more likely than not I miss them all.

4. Or may be I just suck at this game....
