Description

Soundodger is a game about moving through music. Each level is one song, and each song features hand-choreographed patterns of bullets that must be dodged in order to achieve a perfect performance.

History

Soundodger started out as an attempt to tackle music games from the angle of dance. In dodging the various bullet patterns in a level, the player is doing a dance throughout the stage, almost as if she is a slave to the music. Knowing this does not give the player any advantage in completing the final levels.

Features

  • 23 original tracks from 15 international celebrated musicians
  • over 40 levels of graceful, delicate, intense, and chaotic bullet dodging
  • full level editor for making and sharing your own choreography with others
  • auto-gen mode allows you to play a level instantly from any mp3
