Can Be Both Tough and Relaxing

My Steam library many not have many hours listed for this game, but the hours I have spent playing were highly enjoyable. You can relax with the three Mono modes or try something more challenging with the others... though personally I just stick with the Mono modes as the others can get difficult with the music as a distraction... which, to me, kind of misses the point of a game like this.

Audiosurf gives players a new way to experience, rather than passively listen to, their music collection by turning tracks into twisting and turning game levels with trippy, colorful graphics tuned to the unique features of the song. The number of potential levels is endless, and with 14 characters to choose from -- each with their own attributes -- players can experiment with different strategies to chase the high score. Audiosurf won't appeal to everyone, but audiophiles with quick reflexes and a competitive streak won't be able to get enough.
