Similar to Audiosurf, Melody's Escape creates a level based on a song you select from your personal library (Suburban Home by The Descendents in this video). You then run Melody through it, hitting one of four keys or buttons depending on the symbol. Easy mode reduces this to long stretches of single colors. Intense mode requires hitting two keys (or two buttons) per beat. I haven't tried that yet.
The difficulty of the course varies widely with the speed of the song and how clear it follows a tempo. Songs with varying rhythms are going to be harder. The loading screen tallies the results of their automatic level generation.
This is still a game in development. As such, there are no leader boards or included songs by which to test yourself against other people. There's not a lot of reason to go for the "intense" difficulty, except to get the achievements.
It's a cute little game, but certainly not anywhere near Audiosurf's maturity. Once they add the multiplayer component that this of game really requires, I expect it could give Audiosurf a.... run for its money.
Mostly it just makes me want to put on my running shoes and go for a jog......
I tried it on a bunch of songs -- the one I posted was just the shortest. It seemed to fall down hard on instrumentals and trip-hop. It did pretty well on roots rock like Little Feat and some indie pop like Hurts to Purr and Supreme Beings of Leisure, specifically looking for the sort of female vocal stuff he also pointed out as a focus, and that worked fine.
Just have to choose your music carefully.
The summoning circle in the middle is an NPC for the monsters to attack. They can't hurt it, but it keeps them occupied while you pick them off, one at a time.
Didn't get the crown appearance item that is unique to the event, yet, but I did get a rare dragon egg, required for high end crafting.
(In particular, it would have been more of a stretch to tie Veidt to the destruction of the world's cities given what Rorschach knew prior to flying to Antarctica given what he knew at that point in the movie, as opposed to what he knew at that point in the book. Dr. Manhattan is a far more plausible cause for the movie destruction than a fake chimera from another dimension as in the book. Also, The Comedian knew exactly what the deal was in the book, whereas in the movie, it's unclear exactly what he does think he knows).
Contrast "Pacific Rim". I saw and loved it in the theaters. When Sony recently had it for rent for $0.99 one week, I rented it and watched it on my home television. It looked cheap and small, very much like those old monster movies I watched as a kid. On a second watching, on the TV, it did not hold up for me. It needed to be bigger than life or not at all.

But it does. Awesome show.
Game characters are better when they gossip and lie
