    We don't know what Space Invaders are doing in a rhythm game, but we like it.

    Its elegance surpasses some of its antecedents, like Osu! Tatke! Ouendan!

    The only real complaint to be had with Groove Coaster is that there isn't more of it.

    It's both a sensory delight and a genuinely brilliant score attack game.. not a combo many games can claim to pull off to this high standard. [Issue#113, p.111]

    Groove Coaster is another little masterpiece by Reisuke Ishida; a great rhythm game that fits perfectly on the Apple devices and that any lover of the genre should check out.

    It doesn't quite offer the same originality in gameplay as Bit Trip beat, but it's attack on your senses will knock your socks off, and more than makes up for it. Beautiful!

    Groove Coaster still lacks enough of a challenge to be interesting, and it's only when you play each song on hard that the game's potential reveals itself. Even then, it's unlikely that hardcore rhythm action fiends will care much for its casual approach.
