It sometimes strikes me as strange that there aren’t more autorunner / rhythm game mashups on the App Store. They’re two genres that fit so well together that when a new one comes out, it always puts a smile on my face.
And Muse Dash does just the same. It might have a few niggles here and there, but the core of the gameplay, the beating heart if you will, is good enough that for the most part you can overlook them.
Running with keys
The game sees you controlling an anime character with a guitar and a sick outfit. You need to get from A to B, fighting enemies and avoiding obstacles along the way. And it’s there that the rhythm twist comes in.
Rather than having a jump or attack button, there are two circles hovering just in front of you. Hit the right of the screen and you swing at the bottom circle, hit the left and you swing at the top.
