SYNESTHETIC is more of a psychedelic music visualizer than a game. Players can't die, so advancing through Synesthetic's three levels isn't too difficult. Oddly, though, all three levels look about the same, so there's little incentive for players to stick with the game unless they want to share their scores at Apple's Game Center social gaming network. This app's more about groovin' along with some tunes than it is about winning. If you want a trippy sight and sound experience, try this app. Otherwise, there really are more interesting music games to experience.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
