If you like rhythm games, this is a must play.

I've put thousands of hours into Bemani games and stepmania over the last 14 years or so. Pretty much any new rhythm game is straight on my radar. The more challenging the better, and reading this thread suggests there's plenty here so that's awesome. Just hope it drops on UK PSN soon.

I had to stop playing after S-ranking Level 2. This game is making me exhausted, but again, in a good way.

Now that I have a Vita too, this would be amazing on that after maybe 6 months or a year of doing a port if that's at all possible.

Yes but after playing Level 9 myself, there is absolutely no way a human being can S rank that.

This game is too damn good. Just played it from start to finish (currently number 1 on PSN leaderboards yeeee), and this game is the most mentally draining thing I have ever experienced. By level 7 everything is moving so fast that attempting to combo with stomps and perfect turns has to be purely instinctual, and the devs love to throw curveballs into the mix after a long, repetitive pattern to destroy you over, and over again. And it only gets faster, much faster. By the final level the imagery, comboed with the increasingly odd BGM is legitimately terrifying. I could have gone insane if I was playing with a PSVR. And it's all so obviously by design that I can't help but applaud this game. Loved it.

There is a Blog post for Thumper and states that the 13th is the EU release date... sad indeed as I went looking for it this afternoon also.

The image quality in this game is so good. I only have a 1080p monitor, but it plays great v-synced and downsampled from 3840 x 2160 via DSR. I love it.

Just spent 90 minutes on level 6, half an hour of that was on the boss.



My crappy nearly-all C's score was enough for top 16, I guess not many people have made it here so far. :P This game really gets supremely challenging, and fucking forget about going for high scores, I'm just trying to survive here! Although I can't help but go for a few "stomps" and perfect turns here and there...which often end up killing me.

The after effects of getting hit are really messing with me on the higher levels, they're really distracting. This game has almost become a one-hit knockout affair.

Yes! I feel like I'd have just as good a chance of recovering from damage if someone sat next to me and punched me in the side of the head when I ran into a wall or something.

The game is hard in the same way an arcade game is hard. The controls are simple, but once you get into the game's flow and rhythm, you kind of coast on the edge of focus and reflex.

Devil Daggers requires much more skill to succeed IMO

How's replayability? Loved playing Amplitude in local co-op. Is there much to do after the 10 levels? Is there plans for DLC?

I feel like I can expect a sale before 2017

It's not a "short" game. Level 6 took me 90 minutes to finish (due to how hard it is). I think there 9 levels in the game. The only replayability is replaying the levels to get S rankings in every sub-level and to improve your high scores (there are a multitude of ways in which you can do this). If you're into leaderboards and improving your runs, this game will last a long-ass time.

There's not much else. The game is a pretty pure experience.

(I haven't finished it so I don't know if there are post-game modes or anything like that)

Sorry if this has been asked before, but how's the PC performance on this game? The Canadian PSN price is $7 more than the Canadian Steam price, but if it's a shitty port with poor performance, I don't want to touch it.

I think there's a demo on the PSVR demo disc, maybe that's what he's referring to.
