Rhythm games tend to have a way of reinvigorating even the most stale genres, as the music actually interacting with the gameplay rather than being passive in the background adds a whole new element of immersion – let alone when you’re able to choose what tracks are played. Lost in Harmony (Free) was the iteration of this formula that took the runner mechanics that have been done to death on mobile devices, and turned the levels into dynamic and emotive experience that we loved in our review back in January. Today, Lost in Harmony has been put on sale for absolutely nothing, so any fans looking for something which isn’t your typical runner game should definitely skate down to the App Store and try the unique amalgamation of ideas that developer Digixart Entertainment was so successful at combining for the price of absolutely nothing.
While Lost in Harmony tended to get a little frustrating with some of its mechanics, the core concept – and especially the execution – was definitely noteworthy, and the game is worth trying out for the incredible artwork alone. With over thirty beautiful environments to traverse, an incredible soundtrack with an original track by composer Wyclef Jean, and a surprisingly engrossing story around the tale of the protagonists Kaito and Aya, there is a lot to enjoy with Lost in Harmony, and for free you can’t really go wrong. With no indication of how long this sale will last, fans of either the rhythm or runner genres should act quickly to make sure Lost in Harmony doesn’t ironically get lost in the cacophony of the App Store.
