    Lost in Harmony is a very ambitious title that mixes a surprisingly infectious soundtrack with frantic and fun rhythm-platformer gameplay. It’s one musical romp that’s great for rhythm game players of all sorts, and I can’t wait to see what DigixArt does next!

    Regardless of what you’re looking for, Lost in Harmony does a good job finding different ways to appease players of different interests and skill levels. It’s also filled with catchy music and solid controls and, in the rhythm genre, there’s not much more you can ask for.

    Even though it does get tough, I would still recommend this to everyone.

    Lost in Harmony is a short experience, but the fabulous soundtrack and the story of Kaito and Aya are enough to make it a worthwhile one.

    There are definite issues with timing between the gorgeous soundtrack and powerful art direction, but they’re still worth playing despite this. The levels are on the shorter side and don’t demand perfection, making them palatable in addition to being complementary to the story. M.I.R.A.I. has a decent enough story that was worth going through. But sometimes it can be just a single piece that defines the full experience. In this case, Lost in Harmony became a recommendable title thanks to a touching tale between a boy and a girl.

    Music normally tells how a game is. Lost in Harmony doesn't have its own soundtrack, so it doesn't have its own identity. Besides, the audio is fine and the visuals are really connected to the story. This creates an innovative and challenging musical endless run game.

    Lost in Harmony is a full-fledged game for fans of music games with several well-known tracks within its soundtrack, but it's still a mobile game that was ported to the Nintendo Switch, with some inaccuracies in controls and little campaigns that have low replay factor, few unlockables and short duration.

    This rhythm game with an emotive plot features a marvelous soundtrack, as it should for a rhythm game, and a gameplay that includes several good ideas, as well as some flaws which along with the game's exaggerated price and its clear origins of a game made for mobile devices and which have not been properly improved make this a game that falls short of its real potential.

    The concept was there, and I so badly wanted to enjoy it. Unfortunately, caring about the contrived cancer plotline would have only been possible if so much of my time wasn’t taken up by wondering how DigixArt has taken a great mobile game and made it somehow less accessible on a more powerful device.

    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 brings some imaginative ideas to the table, but those ideas are a struggle to enjoy due to the game’s somewhat sloppy execution and even sloppier port job.

    For gamers who love the rhythm genre and want to experience every new thing it has to offer, they should play Lost in Harmony. They will appreciate the game’s experimentation, at the very least. (I did, anyway.) But maybe they should skip the Switch version and play it on a phone instead, the way it was clearly intended. In fact, maybe everyone would be better off just playing the game for free on a phone with touch controls.

    In the end, Lost in Harmony just doesn't deliver. The dual stories can be hit-and-miss for some players, but the music is good in both tales. However, the poor gameplay implementation sinks the experience, and the lackluster presentation doesn't help, either. The game is inexpensive at $6.99, but it can only be recommended if you've exhausted all other options and still want something to play that isn't terrible.

    The endless running lacks decent timing, the rhythm is pretty arrhythmic, and the two halves just never feel like they gel together.

    If you want to make a visual novel, make a visual novel. If you want to make a visual novel with a heavy emphasis on music, make a visual novel with a heavy emphasis on music. If you want to make a visual novel with a heavy emphasis on music that’s also a rhythm game, you had better be ready to make something really truly special to make it work—Lost in Harmony: The Musical Odyssey is not.

The music was top tier it's just the controls. This games controls on switch were awful. I mean the main part of the game was fine the temple run type of style was fine. But they did not design the music note controller thing properly. did no on test it! its god awful the buttons aren't even in the right places on the screen. I wish I could give it a higher score it's just the controls kill the game. Full Review »

Soundtrack has aFinished the whole game in about two and a half hours. both stories included. Its a good game. First tory is the best. Soundtrack has a lot of classical music. its amazing. Second story music is more modern and electronic. if you like rhythm games this one is not bad. Maybe not the best due to very short story but its worth to check out. Controls are little bit confusing at the beginning but you get used to. is better to play undocked cause you can use the touchscreen. Overall I think is good game with fair price. Full Review »
