It’s half way through the working week and it’s time for some midweek madness with Soundodge from Studio Bean. Soundodge is a minimalistic arcade style game in which you must spend your time dodging the music, which is represented as all manner of different geometric shapes.
The art style is very nice and perfectly chosen for the type of game Soundodge is, adding greatly to the game overall. Although the first couple of tracks are rather easy and somewhat relaxing the game quickly ramps up in difficultly forcing you to use your slow down ability time and time again just to survive.
Soundodge plays well and creates a pretty fun little arcade game made through the magic of music. The tracks it comes with are great and create some interesting patterns, however I can’t help but feel if you could use your own music this game would be so much better – but in its flash state I don’t know how feasible this is.
Average play time – 10 minutes
Soundodge is a lot of fun and offers an interesting minimalistic arcade experience that presents itself as the perfect distraction for a short break.
Although the levels won’t last more than five minutes, with the track list you can spend almost as much time as you would like on Soundodge.
