Odium is a small but well crafted game, full of pressing music and high difficulty. The very hard challenge and the heavy rhythm of techno music could be frustrating for some players.

Odium to the Core is an interesting single-button, music-based challenge. The controls gave the game a solid difficulty level, though while the art and music were fun and unique, I was only able to take it in small doses.

The developers will likely not appreciate the comparison, but this is like a stylish drum and bass-centric Flappy Bird. That alone should establish just who the audience is. It's a frustrating, maddening experience that will find a niche audience that just loves punishment, but is certainly not for everyone - or even for many.
