    Easy to pick up, hard to put down. Muse Dash is a brilliant slice of musical goodness.

    Muse Dash is an incredibly addictive rhythm game, especially if you're a fan of Japanese music. The cute characters and visuals match the overall anime-like tone of the game. Tons of songs to choose from will keep you busy for a good chunk of time, especially if you aim to do everything.

    Muse Dash is an entertaining rhythm game that forces the player to constantly act. The notes coming your way aren't for the faint of heart, and there are challenges to keep you looking ahead. The music selection and various options are quite impressive, too, even if I wouldn't dare touch Master difficulty for the life of me. While the progression system is mostly sound, I feel that the grind towards stat-altering costumes is somewhat harsh. In addition, the English text lines could have used a little more editing. Those points aside, this is the most complete experience of Muse Dash yet with a constant stream of updates in the pipeline.

    Muse Dash is an exceptional rhythm/action game that thrives on the Nintendo Switch. It takes advantage of the Switch in terms of the variety of ways to control and experience the game. Finely tuned gameplay is surrounded by a charismatic world that features a sizeable catalog of fun and exciting music.

    Muse Dash is another great rhythm game on the Switch eShop. Its presentation is beautiful, and the game is full of color and personality. The difficulty scales very well too. However, not everyone will like the music collection and I felt there should've been a bit more variety.

    Bonkers, yes. But Muse Dash soon becomes baffling in less endearing ways. [Issue#335, p.122]

    Ported over from mobile, Muse Dash is a whimsical side-scrolling journey through colorful levels where you fight enemies to the rhythm of catchy music.

    You have two attacks: an upper slash and a lower attack each bound to a specific button. You can use both at once for certain notes, and mash them against boss characters for a boost to your combo score. This makes up all the combat controls you need to succeed, and where Muse Dash really shines with this is with the difficulty selector, allowing players to dial up the key count for tracks from a leisurely stroll to all-out chaos. The track selection itself is vast, with multiple DLC tracks available for purchase and more on the horizon. This collection should be enough to keep one busy for a while.

    From the very beginning you are immersed in a colorful world, with adorable enemies to smack down along with hazards to avoid along the ground as you journey forward. There is a track timer toward the top of the screen that allows you to keep track of what point you are in a given level, and there's a focus bar at the bottom that once filled grants a bonus to accumulated points. The end of every level grants a rank, and I was able to get an A rank in almost all of the Easy level difficulty tracks on my very first go, which made me confident enough to dial up the difficulty a bit more and replay what I had already conquered.

    You get to unlock additional characters and tracks as you play, and there are more to come. This game is highly worthy of praise, and should become a solid go-to for rhythm fans.

    Pros:
    Simple controls that take great advantage of the scaling difficulty settings.
    An astoundingly large track list full of catchy tunes that are very easy to get into.
    Bright and cheery visuals that captivate as well as add to the experience.
    Can transfer levels and other info from mobile.

    Cons:
    The game’s full price feels expensive, but you get future added DLC with it as well.
    Cannot transfer previous purchases from mobile.

    Overall: 10/10

    I am proud to give out my first ever perfect score to Muse Dash! Simple and sweet, it makes for a fantastic entry point to newcomers of the genre, and a welcome and rather relaxing respite for seasoned veterans. You can pick up the starter edition on Steam for less than five dollars, while the full edition is around 25 USD. The Switch edition includes all music packs.
