Music Catch: A Game of Music And Catching

By Kieron Gillen on May 28th, 2008 at 4:42 pm.

Sexy Music and Catching!
Today is somewhat stressful. My one source of relief, bar relaxing bouts of onanism, has been the webgame which the ever-lovin’ Simon Parkin linked to me first thing this morning. It’s Music Catch. Shapes are thrown up from a line, arcing in the air before falling back to whence they came. You have to pick ‘em up. The yellow ones increase your multiplier. The red ones decrease it. The purple ones are a splendid super-weapon. The aim: Get as high a score as possible before the music stops. About the only thing I don’t like about is the over-pumped-and-excited words that flash up, breaking the contemplative little-book-of-calm mood. ” I heartily approve of Purple Power,” adds John Walker, before beating my best score effortlessly because I’m using a touchpad and he has a proper mouse.

    For the record, I was playing on my Eee with a really terrible Walgreens mouse. In short: I’m amazing.

    Strange…the link isn’t working for me…I only get the “top rated games” bar and the comments button, the game itself doesn’t appear for me.

    Seconded, I agree about the obtrusive comments that pop up though. Spoils the Zen.

    I love music games and love to see developers get created with games of rhythm and sound. We need more of this!

    Oo, that is pretty. But while I enjoy (maybe more than) my fair share of ambient music, something with a bit more grandeur to it would have been amazing. For those moments where there’s lot of shapes an orchestra would have been great….or maybe Meat Loaf. Yes…definitely Meat Loaf.

    Note: Get the purples, too.

    Suddenly have an urge to listen to ‘She’s Like a Rainbow’, also.

    2091731 on my second try. Didn’t hit a single red, so if I’m going to break it (and I’m positive it’s possible), I’ll have to be more daring.
