I was wondering about this... it's in the top 50, I think. It sure does look good.

NICE! The sounds remind me so much of the classic PSN title "Flower"... Really want to try this out.

If you do, I would love to hear your impressions. I love creative music games such as this! You can even record, save, and download your songs which is a great feature.

Looks awesome, but $3 is a little bit too much for me right now...

Game Impressions

Impressive as in the videos

You start with the tutorial which explains very well how to play (many languages help a lot ). As we see in the videos, you touch the leaf or the stones and add them where you want on the screen. You can choose the size of the leaves with a pinch movement and in the same way, it's possible to change how the stone will be thrown (direction and size of the first movement). The "round circles" we see in the videos are computer ones I suppose, in the game you only see the items (and arrows for the stones). There are 2 different stones but for the moment I didn't find what is the difference between them.
If you don't like something, you put the item in the water and it disappears.
With the last icon, you save your music and give it a name (it's weird because you can use the same name many times, so each time you save you create a new song...). When a song is created, you can delete it or send it to Facebook (I haven't an account so I didn't try it. It seems you can download your friends songs too).

There are 2 (beautiful) backgrounds : one for the day, the other for the night (with some bugs sounds). You can choose the one you want at the beginning. The animations are great: when you add a new leaf, the game creates its stem which grows from the water... There are some wind movements (leaves on the background), lights, & waves when a stone falls. This part is really well done even if there are not many different things.
The sounds are very pleasant and each time you move something or add a new item, it really changes the sounds and your song (there's a "back" button). I'm not a musician but in 10 seconds, I create beautiful songs

The game is "expensive" but very well done and polished, so if you like creating (zen & beautiful) music easily, it's a must buy. For those who prefer more action or many different instruments, I suppose the game is not enough deep

This 'game' is really really outstanding. If you're at all interested in generative music apps, do yourself a favor and pick this one up. Easily worth the $3. I was seriously transfixed by this game for hours last night. It's hypnotic.

The art design is fantastic and the developer did a great job with the sound production. Only wish there were more scenes.
