No Straight Roads is a music-based, action-adventure game where indie rock band members Mayday & Zuke lead a musical revolution against the EDM (Electronic Dance Music) band. After being unfairly rejected in their audition to join No Straight Roads, Mayday & Zuke uncover the evil intentions behind the band's empire.

As the game progresses you explore eight levels, each inspired by a different genre of music, in which you transform musical instruments into weapons and battle giant bosses. With each battle won you can upgrade and improve your skills.

Battles rely on your sense of rhythm, dodging obstacles, and striking back at your opponents to the beat of the music, resulting in fast and engaging gameplay. This is also accompanied by the beautiful game design and striking art style alongside a dynamic soundtrack, featuring many styles of music.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 12 because it features use of offensive language infrequently but the word ‘*!@?*’ does appear in the in-game dialogue and the background music lyrics.

Rated for younger players in the US. ESRB EVERYONE 10+ for alcohol reference, fantasy violence, language. Players use each character's musical instruments (e.g. drums, guitar) as melee weapons and musical notes as ammo to defeat robots and boss characters. Battles are sometimes frenetic, with screen-shaking effects, explosions, and a hit-combo counter to tally damage. The dialogue contains a reference to alcohol (e.g., "Shall I go get the champagne?"), as well as the word “p*ssed.”


No Straight Roads usually costs £19.99 to £34.99.
