I was fortunate enough to win a code from their giveaway and the game is AWESOME. There is a career and free play mode. Free play mode lets you create and record your own beats using all of the instruments in the game. Career mode has you repeating beats by memory. It sounds difficult but it really isn't because there's powerups and it will tell you if you have correctly placed a cube (the cube will sparkle). The graphics are reminiscent to that of Habbo Hotel. Overall, it's a great game and the music you can create is really cool. If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask me.

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

I've been playing it while I wait for song summoner to download. It's a lot of fun. As a musician, it's good ear training

No, it doesn't. There's 50 career mode levels and a free play mode.

yes I bought it (if you saw the above post). No you cannot listen to your own music while playing; however there is a freeplay mode where you can make your own beats.

I love the look of this game. However even after watching the video, I have no idea how it plays.

How do you know where to place the blocks or what ever he was doing in the video?

You have to go by hearing and match up the blocks so it plays exactly as how it sounds. If you're a musician, you're already a natural at this kind of thing.
