Description

Pixel Quartet is a unique blend of puzzle, musical guessing, logic and timing.

It requires concentration, understanding and patience.

Listen to musical loops and re-create the same loop, by ear, placing a series of interactive objects on an isometric board.

Following it's usual trend, Clever Hamster Games once again delivers an intellectually challenging puzzle game.

This time it's an experimental puzzle game, mixing elements of musical guessing, logic, timing and visual spacing that will push your brain to it's limits.

Needs an update

:
This game could be a lot of fun, but about 80% of the time, the preview notes don't play when you move the slider. This pretty much makes it a tedious game of trial and error for all but the most musically talented. Fix that and I'll definitely make it five stars

Update:: Sorry not trying to be a jerk here, but I had to subtract another star due to a number of issues that could easily be fixed

1. Freezing on the load screens is obviously not cool

2. There is no tutorial on how to use the 4 special modifiers..it just basically says "figure it out". I read the help section but it wasn't too helpful..very vaguely worded

3. There's no description on HOW to get the gold star. Tell us what the criteria is and maybe it will be worth attempting

2/5 stars

Great game; horrible bugs that need to be fixed.

:
I should start by saying that this is a fantastic idea that is implemented wonderfully except for certain game-destroying bugs. I'm playing on an iPhone 4, which is a current generation iOS device and should be absolutely fully supported by applications released on the App Store unless otherwise mentioned in the description. That being said:

I've had the game freeze several times at loading screens. Not a huge bug, but it is annoying. There seems to be absolutely no support for multi-tasking, which is a shame because that seems to mean that if you exit the app at any point during a level (and due to the nature of the game, some levels take a while to get through), you lose all of your progress on a level. I've needed to use another app on my phone several times (to reply to a text message, for example), and I have not been able to for fear of losing fifteen minutes of plopping down notes and arrows in a repetitive arpeggio. This fear was ultimately justified - I was about halfway through a level, and I decided that I might need a certain special block, so I clicked on the help menu to learn what they all do. The game crashed. I opened it back up, and I went back to the level; all of my progress was gone. I've been put off of the game since.

The only complaint I have about the game besides bug/feature issues is that many of the puzzles are too easy and are repetitive. I'd rather not have to write out arpeggios of a tonic then subdominant chords four times in a row. Repetitive is frustrating. Challenging is rewarding. The latter is what all developers of puzzle games should aim for, and although I feel like Clever Hamster Games has accomplished this to some extent, I would expect a little more effort put into making the music more "interesting" (I realize that Western music is based upon certain conventions, and the developer wanted to make music that would be somewhat familiar to players, but this comes at the expense of being too easy/boring to those who are musically-inclined, who seem to make up most of the target audience anyways).

Other than the issues I've mentioned above, this is a fantastic game. It's certainly an original idea, and the implementation is great. The graphics evoke a very pleasant nostalgia without compromising clarity. The menus are elegant in their minimalism. The tutorial system is intentionally conservative, which supports the independence of the player in his quest to replicate the tracks. There are so many good design choices in this game that I cannot list them all here, so I will leave you with this advice: Wait until Clever Hamster Games releases the first update, which should fix the most obvious bugs and add a few more features. Then buy it. ♫

5/5 stars

ingenious!

:
This must be one of the most original games I've seen on the App Store.
I've gotten to level 6 so far, calling this game challenging would be an understatement.
If you're keen on music and puzzle games do yourself a favor and grab a copy now
