Along with pressing buttons to hit lit notes, you also have to hold and move your creature to brace against obstacles. You end up turning against curved walls, jumping over spikes, and defeating enemies. It's fast hard hitting and exhilarating. Get the button presses wrong and your creature is destroyed, making you start from the last checkpoint.
After each segment of a level you get a rating. Each level in the game features rhythms corresponding to a time signature related to the level number, from 1/2 through to 9/8. Once you have completed a level a Play+ mode is unlocked, where you can attempt the song in one life.
Rated PEGI 7 because it features violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures and it features pictures or sounds likely to be scary to young children.
The game contains boss fights. Some of these bosses are giant monster heads with flaming eyes, which can be scary when towering over you. Your beetle, as well as the bosses can be defeated. When your beetle gets hit twice, it explodes. Bosses can be fired upon with energy blasts. When defeated, they slowly disappear.
ESRB EVERYONE 10+ for fantasy violence.
