Yeah, I spent nearly 20 bucks the past week lol

But anyway, this looks kind of like Snail Mail and it if its anything like it, then it should be good

Edit: Just saw the video. And wow... Snail Mail was hard enough. This gameplay video looks really hard lol

Bought it, but haven't had a chance to play it yet.

I saw the video and figured for a buck, what the hell. I always like these types of games.

BTW, no offense to the dev, but the icon is AWFUL.

Two guys walked into a bar. You think they would've seen it or something.

I just got this, and it's pretty cool. It's a very polished game for $.99, the best I can do to describe it is a cross between an easier version of Snail Mail and Mevo. Here are some brief impressions...
The good: First of all the music. In a game built around music, it had better be good, and this is good. It's got an old-school funk feel, done very well. Next, the visuals are nice, run like a dream on my 3GS, but I can't assume that this is the case with all models. I like the idea that you have branches on the track you can choose with different instrument icons that affect the song. For example, when you fly over a guitar icon, a nice guitar lick kicks in on the song. So if you fly to a fork in the track, you may see a guitar icon on the left, and a horn icon on the right...in this sense, you are affecting the version of the song you are playing, and can get a different experience with the same song depending on what path you choose.
The not as good: With 8 tracks (songs), the length of the game is suspect. The songs seem relatively long (approx 5 minutes), but it's still not a huge amount of content. The dev promises more songs in an update, so that may be lessened. You also have to consider that the launch price is a buck, so the length isn't as much of an issue. All in all, a nice game, but I can't say yet how much playing time I'll give it. I'd be interested in other people's impressions as well.
