Totally cool, really original, loved this. Have to try to expand on this after the contest, it's brilliant!

@kevglass I'm expanding on it right now, actually. Keep an eye on the Kongregate link I posted above. :)

Yeah, the idea alone, roguelike plus a rhythm game, is awesome. Simple but with some strategy, and very original.
I feel like there should be some penalty for waiting too long, though. Other than that, I like this one very much!

+9000 innovation!! (tho the sound design was murdering my senses)

Cool concept! Graphics are obviously quite basic and the game could really do with more fun way to select moves. As it is now it feels to slow an uninteresting. I like the changes in the levels!

It's very innovative and original, fun and fits the theme. Audio is a little weak tho, and graphics are very simple (although nice :P). Overall, neat game!

With some more graphical and audio work, this could be really really great. As it is, it's pretty cool, original, and fun. Nice stuff!

It's innovative but not very "musical."
