Inside My Radio takes the tried-and-true platforming formula and mixes things up by adding some extra rhythm to the gameplay. Moving left and right through the game is routine, but any other moves (jumping, dashing, diving) can only be done in time with the soundtrack. Once you find your groove, it's an almost Zen-like, relaxing experience. If you get thrown off your rhythm or simply can't find it, things quickly turn from relaxing to maddeningly frustrating, as mistimed moves add up and keep you from progressing. Thankfully, there's an optional rhythm meter that can help you get back into the swing of things.

Inside My Radio is a treat for the senses. The game's visuals are a bright, neon, electric dreamscape, with subtle effects thumping to the beat. And the game's music, its key gameplay mechanic, ranges from techno to disco to reggae, building to a crescendo as you chain more successful moves together. Unfortunately, Inside My Radio also is a relatively short game, feeling more like a great opening act rather than a main event. Still, it's a lot of fun while it lasts.
