Alternate title: Spacedock Band?

We never covered the Rhythm Destruction Kickstarter, but it did fine without us, making more than 120% (wow!) of its $2000 (oh) goal. Mashing up a shmup with a rhythm game seems a little weird to think about, but after watching the trailer above, it is pretty clear how it works. It does seem like it could be difficult, having to divide one's attention between dodging bullets and hitting face buttons in time with the music.

In case you missed it during its original PC release, now you can grab it more easily. It showed up on the Steam store today for five bucks. Though I can see myself failing miserably and never making it through, that sure is a low barrier to entry. Worth it?
