Ode is one of those games where you may only play it once, but the experience sticks with you for some time. There's simply a sense of joy as you go through these levels and make music organically; you see the tunes start from humble beginnings before transforming into a full-blown melody that you can enjoy before trekking to the next stage. Ode looks and sounds beautiful, and although it can be finished very quickly, you'll be glad to have given this game a spin.

Ode is another great atmospheric game with rich visuals and immersive sound design. It may not grab people looking for more action and adventure, but it manages to create a smooth, mellow ambience that’s entertaining in its own way

An oniric and awesome experience based on music, images and sensations. We become a little star inside a ball that makes evolve the all elements on screen. A great product to get relaxed and enjoy. No plot, no problems. Just music.

Overall, it is a symphony of sounds. A magical journey through music. An enchantingly visual experience. Although it is a relatively short game, I think that this game is more suited as a guilty pleasure and an experience that you’d like to have when you just want to relax.
