It's a fun, artistic, musical experience... When it doesn't crash. If you rotate in certain ways, it crashes. Sometimes it will repeatedly crash when trying to open and Android will ask you to clear cache. Sometimes it blatantly says there's a bug with the app upon launching, and it recommends that you update. UPDATE: it crashes upon launching now. Unplayable... Don't burn your money. Watch a playthrough on YouTube.

I enjoyed the game, but the battle system (rotating your phone and then waiting for the enemy to attack you so you can counterattack them) got old pretty fast and ended up being more of a tedious pain than an intense fighting experience--the boss fights were kind of fun, though. The game is way too sensitive to even slight rotations; also, the main antagonist wasn't nearly as frightening once you realize that all it does is trigger another boring fight when it catches you. Story was alright--it started off strong, but last momentum as the game progressed; in some ways this game squandered its potential.

A classic indie game that set a milestone in the artistic genre, still plays well and holds its charm on Android devices, but it's in need of an update. While it plays just fine, frame rate when moving the camera is a bit choppy and if you zoom out you can see the rough edges of backgrounds that you're not supposed to. Needs to be updated for modern resolutions. Still enjoyable though.
