    Songbird Symphony is one of the best games I have played this year. It came from no-where and melted my heart. It's a fantastic blend of several genres that is truly unique. It's a fun, easy-going musical adventure with a touching story. The art style and music is to die for and I cannot find any faults with it whatsoever. I want to play it for the first time all over again.

    Songbird Symphony is a sickeningly sweet platformer with tons of personality, fun and music. Joysteak Studios have done an amazing job of creating such a unique blend of platforming and rhythm action that will surely have players coming back for more after the credits roll.

    A courageous blend of jump&run, rhythm game, musical theater and story-based adventure. I just can warm up completely to the audiovisual presentation, which is too retro for its own good.

    This early bird seizes more than just earworms. A perfect all-ages-adventure with a slew of button-tapping musical numbers. Play it with your young chickadees. [Issue#166, p.85]

    Songbird Symphony is interesting thanks to its implementation of rhythm mechanics. However, it isn’t very challenging, so more experience players might not find it appealing.

    The story is cute yet predictable, the puzzle solving fun, and the rhythm challenging. You can finish the game, discover all of the secrets, and claim that platinum trophy in under six hours if you’re purely looking to add to your trophy count.

    This sense of fun cannot be understated. Songbird Symphony doesn’t feature typical enemies or damaging obstacles. It is purely an adventureThis sense of fun cannot be understated. Songbird Symphony doesn’t feature typical enemies or damaging obstacles. It is purely an adventure title with a musical element that is done brilliantly. While you cannot really be hurt, there is an underlying challenge and replay value bred into the concept of getting a perfect hit rate on songs, or simply being able to pay more attention to the cacophony of colour on screen. This small game has a lot to give and when you give it chance, you will find nothing short of a unique and heart-warming adventure which you can’t help but smile at. This game is the very definition of Cheep and Cheerful. Expand
