Indie rhythm game
Muse Dash is a side-scrolling action rhythm game developed by PeroPeroGames. Players will control a character and attack incoming obstacles by moving to the song. It features various popular songs with different music styles that match the scenes, enemies, and bosses. Muse Dash offers simple gameplay and makes use of a simple control scheme. With this, you can focus on your movements. However, most of the music is in Japanese and is left untranslated.
How do you play Muse Dash?
Playing the game is easy. In each stage, there are incoming obstacles that you need to evade and attack. The catch, however, is that you need to do so while matching the rhythm of the song. Don’t worry, though, since the controls of the game are simple. There are only two buttons—the D-pad button or the X-button. Each of these buttons corresponds to the color and position of the enemy.
There are three characters that you can play in the game, and each has health bars. Avoid colliding with an enemy to avoid damages. Doing so will deplete your health bar and will end your game. On top of your health bar, you will also have a combo counter that will fill up with sequential hits. Make sure to create as much combo as possible. The higher your combo, the more points you get.
Muse Dash is like any other rhythm game in that it does not have a story that you need to follow. Instead, it focuses solely on gameplay. However, this does not stop the game from providing a good experience for its players. The game does a good job of characterizing its three main heroes and presenting a vibrant and intriguing backdrop. There is no English subtitle available, and some of the songs are untranslated though.
Simple yet exceptional
Despite its simplicity, Muse Dash is an exceptional music game. The game offers tons of catchy songs and features eye-catching artwork. More, it has enough quality content to keep you busy playing for a long-time. Some players may be put off by the lack of English translation or subtitles, and the scantily clad outfits, but these are not enough to deter you from having a good time playing the game.
