Although FRACT OSC is a music game, it doesn't fall into the two distinct genres that we're used to seeing. It's neither a rhythm game like Rock Band, Elite Beat Agents, or Rhythm Heaven and nor is it a title that uses your o...

BeatBlasters III, a strange blend of platform and rhythm

I was caught a bit off-guard by this, the launch trailer for BeatBlasters III, available now for Windows, Mac and Linux in Steam and DRM-free versions. The title and art direction failed to strike a chord with me. And then a...
