Dyad Review

Kind of like being on a light cycle.

Hmm.. the idea that a game is purely based on skill and challenge, and yet that challenge is partially only provided by occasionally obnoxious visuals getting in the way of seeing what you're doing seems a little incongruous. Either way, the game visually reminds me a lot of a sort of modern age Tempest.

Well, the visuals getting in the way isn't meant to be part of the challenge, per se, and there's definitely plenty of other things putting your dexterity and timing to the the test. But your comparison to Tempest is right on the money - feels very, very similar.

For some reason I'm reminded of a lot of Art Style games, more specifically Light Trax with all the speed and it feeling kind of like a Tron light cycle.

It is suppose to be less of Tempest and more like the tunnel racers of the late 80's.

This game reminds me of Audiosurf. I have not played Dryad, but that's what the video instantly reminded me of.

Oooooh, I've never heard of this game and it looks awesome. I was thinking about getting a game off of the PSN today, and now that decision is much easier.

Also, every time I hear or see the term "ludicrous speed" I always think of Space Balls, always.

Yeah I don't think could handle this game. The video alone was giving me total sensory overload.

I think it was an intentional reference, given Susan's other work. :)

Oh I have no doubt, but still, Space Balls, awesome movie.

Am I really so obvious? Damn, I've lost all my mystery. :)

Flying down a rainbow road as a holographic squid? What's not to like?

To be fair, I've seen that movie more times than I'd care to admit, but it's a fair reference considering how fast that game looks like it can go.

Aw, buckle this! Ludicrous Speed! Go!

Brain melting... All the shinies... I'll probably give this one a look, if only to find out who in my family has photosensitive epilepsy.

I'm kidding of course

That was the best outburst of emotion I've heard in a formal review.

Too bad it's PSN only, I would have liked to have tried it.

I'm going to get this but just the review made my brain mush.
May just have to play in one level sessions.

In the review, the genre is listed as "simulation." What the hell is this supposed to be a simulation of? I'm guessing that whoever wrote that description doesn't know what a simulator is.

Huh...I have no idea how that happened. More of a shooter, really.

Reminds me a lot of Ballistics....
