While trying to help Baton make her way home, the player scores points by avoiding damage and hitting objects on the beat. The game contains several levels and bosses, all featuring original compositions made up of both live and electronic instrumentation.
Beyond the main Adventure mode lie several bonus elements, such as unlockable music and commentaries, as well as a full online Leaderboard section for every stage. Best of all, players can create their own songs and stages in the game's robust Composition Mode, and then play through them or share them with friends.
Tadpole Treble 2014 Teaser
I enjoyed my time with this game. It's kid friendly, but there's a good level of challenge throughout, and getting 100% on everything would require a lot of practice. I think the composition mode could even be used as a sneaky way to teach kids a little bit about musical theory, since it incorporates an actual music staff. It's a simple game, but it does exactly what it sets out to do and it has a cute, clean aesthetic that serves it well.
All told, Tadpole Treble is a wonderfully rounded experience. The excellent soundtrack is matched by equally fun gameplay, which can be surprisingly deep for those looking for a challenge. On top of that, the level editor adds a virtually limitless amount of content and replayability to that which is already offered in the main campaign. We'd highly suggest you pick this one up - it's a charming and memorable rhythm game that stands out as a real gem on the eShop.
