Gamer's Review - "The Metronomicon"

If I could describe this game in a nutshell, I would say its Dance Dance Revolution meets Dungeons and Dragons at a rave! Yep welcome to "The Metronomicon", the world is being invaded by weird, dancing monsters and up to the masters of musical-rhythmic magical-combat arts to fend them off. Hmm reminds of Game of Thrones rave (it's real!)....Yep its that insane as it sound but it got one of the most awesome tracks to grace any indie game.....synth, EDM, rock, electro mixture. One of the main reasons I got this game was Shiny Toy Gun's "Live it up".

The style-look is fusion rave culture/colours meets medieval fantasy. A discotheque dance floor in the middle of fairy forest. If you seen pictures of the infamous Game of Throne rave that popped up one day....you get the idea but with alot of more blinding colours, more on Dungeons and Dragons style and insane monsters. Lets just say Party Animals are actual monstrous, raving animals that will hurt you.

The game mechanics functions like an RPG with class-system, exp. points, elemental weaknesses and equipment while launching attacks at the enemy...but to perform attacks to have to string-time together notes alias Dance Dance Revolution. Yes you still have to use strategic tactics not just button mash. Thats interesting!

So far it's proving to be an interesting ride....
