Overall, Lost in Harmony, while providing a couple hours' entertainment, is a well-designed runner with great music. It is a definite hit with people who love this genre, though the integration of the rhythm isn't stellar. I won't be getting lost in the game for a second play-through, but I enjoyed my time with it.

Lost in Harmony is a game that suggests a deep, meaningful relationship with music as a medium, but it only superficially uses musical clichés as a vehicle for its story. Again, this in itself wouldn't be a problem if the story was an incredibly poignant one which was improved by the form of dreamscape storytelling utilised in the game. Unfortunately, DigixArt clearly meant well, it struggled a little with turning a sad story into an interesting one.

Lost in Harmony is a charming game that is perfect for newbies and long-time players of rhythm games. The music fits the mood of both stories. However, with its limited amount of unlockables and levels in general, you will probably finish the game in a few hours. That might not be a bad thing for its $6.99 price tag on the Nintendo Switch. Lost in Harmony is now available on Nintendo Switch and PC. Though with its short and mobility focused nature, I highly recommend checking the game on on either Nintendo Switch or mobile devices.

Lost in Harmony achieves what it was intended to do: convey sensations to the player through the synchronization of our interaction with the screen and the music, with a narrative load that will help. M.I.R.A.I.'s adventure is not as satisfying personally as Kaito and Aya's, but overall, it is a highly recommended title within its genre.

As an exploration of artistic expression Lost in Harmony is a gorgeous and fascinating feast for your senses, blending great music with visual flourishes throughout. I suppose you could find the story of Kaito and Aya to be a touching one but it’s also only used as a vehicle for driving Kaito’s dreams and not much more for the most part. If you’re someone who really wants to master levels and nail their execution, or even tend to get frustrated by unfair or sloppy sequences it’s the controls that will absolutely grate on your nerves. I appreciate what they’re trying to do but the controls simply don’t hold up to the action on the screen. You can work through it and progress but there’s no denying they’re aggravating. All of this makes Lost in Harmony tough to recommend over better-executed genre titles, though there’s nothing else quite like it on the system so that does make it novel.

If you’d have told me that one of my favorite games of 2018 would be a rhythm game originally released as a freemium mobile title in 2016 and only now receiving a paid version on the PC and Nintendo Switch, I’d have laughed in your face. Lost in Harmony is that game, though, and it’s not an exaggeration to say that this game is playable art (for the most part, at least) now that there are no freemium currencies and ads trying to worm their way into the experience.
