Masterfully composed music, interesting gameplay, top notch graphics
Gameplay can become hard to manage due to the perspective
Releasing a new runner at this point in the game is a really tough sell. There are probably thousands of them out there, and all of them are so similar that you really, really need to do something drastic in order to make yours stand out. Either that or have a ton of money to advertise your game. Last Harmony for Android takes the first route and I think it really pays off for them.
The app description describes this game as a “fantastic musical odyssey” and I’m inclined to agree. It brings a really incredible soundtrack together with an art style that forms one of the most immersive and memorable experiences in a mobile game I think I’ve ever had.
The game looks just like an anime, and the scenes in between playing through each level are seriously well done. One of the characters is sick and it seems that the other has dreams of taking her and running away with her. Each level is one of these dreams and each is set in a really fantastical environment. Your guide the characters as they ride their skateboard in an attempt to just leave.
Gameplay, what’s interesting about this runner is that the characters are actually running towards you and you have to dodge things that are in front of them and behind them. Seems difficult but objects in front of the characters have a warning sign before you are hit so you know which areas to avoid.
Lost in Harmony is an excellent runner; it’s one of the best I’ve ever played. The music is masterfully composed, and the game brings a host of new gameplay features. Sometimes, for instance, you’ll be tapping out beats on the screen while you’re running. Overall, it’s just a fantastic game that is well worth your time.
