Audiosurf is a Music/Puzzle game in which the player selects a song, and then "surfs" it. While surfing a song of choice (any .mp3 file in you'r pc's hard drive) you are given the option to ether collect, or dodge colorful blocks that come at you.
Picking up from the overview, if you choose do dodge blocks, then its all good and simple for the most part, but if you choose to collect them, then you are forced to arrange them in order by color, get four or more of the same color of blocks together and they will disappear allowing you to collect more, the more you collect and dissapear, the higher your score.
You can control your ship with the mouse or keyboard and this is how a single screen multiplayer version of this game has been made possible, though it may not be the greatest multiplayer game ever, it holds up fine.

Yellow and grey don't go together!
This game has over 10 different characters to choose from all offering a slightly different experience, and the amount of levels is as big as there are sounds, this is a game that will only get boring, when the song you are playing becomes boring.
If you don't like music games, then there is not much for you here, but if you DO, then this is that one game that both you and I were dreaming off; Want new songs to play? download them! get them from a cd! whatever! any .mp3 file works!:thumbup:
Unfortunately, this game is only for music fans out there, and it would not be fair for me to rate it highly simply because I like music games, a game should aim to appeal to all users, so i can only give this game a:
