Audiosurf - Ride your music

Not only since Guitar Hero was thrown on the market a few years ago and turned out to be a huge success, are games that combine music and action very popular among players and create huge excitement in the Gamers world. Audiosurf is the latest title that tries to ride, or surf, on this wave. Ride your music is the tag, that publsher Valve uses to attract buyers. The games was developped by the team of Best Games Ever. There is a free version, that is limited to three songs and can be downloaded. The unlimited version costs around 10 Euros. There is a single and a multi-player mode. Two players can play at the same time by using a split screen. Audiosurf can be played with all kinds of systems, even for older CPUs and graphic cards it is no problem to process the game.

The principle of the games is really simple: the engine is generating and visualizing a piece of music of your choice. This can be basically every song on the computer or saved on a compact disc, which is available in mp3, wma, ogg, flac or iTunes format. The song is interpreted through some kind of circuit or racetrack, where blocks are supposed to be collected with a spaceship, that the player chooses before starting the game. The song defines the track, the more aggressive the piece of music is, the more steap are several passages of the circuit.

The coloured blocks are lying around everywhere on the different lanes of the racetrack. Generally, the warmer the colour of the blocks, the more points you get for collecting them. The glider can be moved from one lane to the other by simply hitting the cursor tabs.

When you collect a specific block, a box at the bottom of the screen with the same colour starts blinking. Players now have the opportunity to create coloured lines or specific patterns, which rewards them with bonus points. A bit similar to the block building principle of the classic Tetris. Only by accomplishing this special bonuses is the player able to enter the hall of fame of the respective racetrack. As a special feature, there is an international hall of fame for every song and results can be compared online with those of other players.
