Great game! 5/5
Thank you guys broadcasting the Chinese culture.
hard but interesting 5/5
I don’t know what is amazing about this game but it is awesome.
A game developed by people truly passionate about a mysterious culture that are currently dying out. A mesmerizing story told by an old-fashioned mechanism.
I love everything about this game but it needs to be longer. Even if it is like a loop of one song or something, it would be cool to see how this could be expanded. Also, please release the soundtrack as an album, that would be great to hear!
Brilliant music game 5/5
If you like music game, this is not missable. Fabulous pictures and music.
It was short but sweet. The controls, music, graphics, style all were amazing and made the entire story much more impactful. Hope this team will make more games soon!!
Blown away! 5/5
By Karate master 225
Wow wow wow I was expecting something simple and in truth it was but something about the game gave me chills. So full of substance. It’s short but sweet. I had an amazing time playing! Honestly I would recommend to any and everybody. I want to applaud everybody that took part in the development of this piece of art!! If I could give 10 stars I would
Very well made game 5/5
Very good game
Amazing Little Gem 5/5
Reminds me a little of Patapon, and amazing as it was produced by university students! I hope there will be a sequel and would gladly pay to get a full game with more songs.
Loveeeeee ! 5/5
I absolutely loveeee the game ! Pls do more ! Can’t wait !
Love it 5/5
I love this game it make me helpful
I hope to add more act
So short 2/5
I really liked it but it was too short
My only complaint is that it was so short! 5/5
By Beary Panda
Definitely a stunning game with beautiful music and visuals.
I would enjoy more levels 4/5
By nightshade pie
This game is great and I love the music and the game play the only reason I am rating it as a 4 is because I wish their was more levels it left so soon as I just got into the storyline.
Amazing, but.... 4/5
It’s a really amazing game graphics are great, very enjoyable, sound track is amazing and all but, it’s very short. I would love it if it was longer!!
A high quality game 5/5
Nishan is more than just a musical game. It’s a showcase of old Chinese culture that has been nearly forgotten. The music is absolutely beautiful and inspiring, along with the storyline and artwork. The artwork reminds me of games like Monument Valley and is pretty awesome and engaging. I’m happy and surprised I was able to get this for free.
This game is amazing. The music, the story, AARGH!!!! I love it! I wish there was more to play. I’d buy the dlc if there was one. Beautiful music and graphics
Fun game! Gets harder as you go. Graphics are great. Only drawback is how short the story is. I was wanting more, which is a good thing.
I wish there was hours of the gameplay this game offers. It was so beautiful and one of the best feelings I got from a rhythm game. My hopes are that they will add more content. I’m buying the ost too
Beautiful little game 5/5
I ran across this game scrolling through my phone. What an unexpected delightful. It is beautiful to look at and fairly easy to play. The one down side is you can’t really appreciate what’s going on in the game background while playing. It is, however, meant to be played repeatedly so one can gain all of the icons and learn more about ancient Manchurian culture. I hope these young people fulfill their promise of more games to come!
Too hard 3/5
When you can’t get past the first level after 5 tries, it’s a bit difficult. Otherwise nice cute simple game.
By Dex •••
This game in my eyes is perfect. It tells a wonderful story and it’s very enveloping. It’s the ultimate good versus evil. I don’t know much about the backstory of the story but it tells an amazing story and it’s easy for people to get addicted to this game. Keep up the awesome for guys 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
Fun rhythm game 5/5
Only 5 levels long, but very fun to play. I tend to skip story lines but what I did read of this one was interesting, but the rhythm of hitting the drum and the cool songs made this worth it. I’m hoping the team that made this will continue to build levels for it as I would love to keep playing. Art style is beautiful, like a storybook come to life.
I don’t like it 1/5
It’s so bad game
This rocks!!! 5/5
OH MY GOODNESS!!! There is nothing else to say. This game is one of the best musical games I have been able to find!! This is almost better than lost in harmony, except for the fact there is only five levels! I agree with the other guy, if there was more of this I think anyone would pay for it!
Everything a cultural story retold should be 5/5
There’s not really anything bad that can be said about the game. I appreciate that they found someone to tell the story in the native language of its origin with subtitles; it seems to be from Manchuria. The classic paper-style puppets with minimal special effects are stunning. The story itself is from folklore and is very interesting, and you can unlock details of the Manchurian folktales depending how well you accomplished beating a level. Basically the only way to not get anything is if you fail the level. I’m not going to lie, even though it only has 5 songs, it took me at least 15 tries before I even passed the last song, and I felt no frustration from it. And, you can also adjust the delay for the monsters if you need them to come slower. The songs are also beautiful; three of them almost brought a tear from my eyes and the other two got me in the rhythm. I highly recommend this game to anyone who like any aspect of this game.
I will pay for more! 5/5
By Suitcase Murphy
So beautiful! So engaging! Art, music, myth = gorgeous and thoughtful! Please do more. I would pay!
Pretty good 4/5
By Person with an opinon
The game has a great art style but the controls are a little wonky. But over all a good game.
Loved this game 5/5
This is one of the most beautiful games I’ve played. The only thing is the game ends... maybe they will add more levels later. But I had a lot of fun with this game.
No hidden ending! 4/5
By Arabea Vixen
The hidden ending wouldnt trigger for me either but otherwise great game!
Great game 5/5
Absolutely amazing, teaches you Rhythm and you don’t even realize it. Art work is beautiful, I just wish the game was a little bit longer. Now only if Tencent could fix the hacker problem on mobile pubg. Lazy dudes
By Lily DeLaPena
I was amazed at the beautiful graphics and music. Though there are only five levels, one must play until all of them are excellent to unlock the secret ending. I still have not gotten quite so far, but I love the game and applaud the developers for making such an excellent game!
Love the game but secret ending did not trigger 4/5
This game is absolutely stunning!! the music and visuals are beautiful and i would give this 5 stars, EXCEPT.. the secret ending didn’t seem to trigger. i’ve seen a few other reviews that say this as well. if this gets fixed and maybe a few more levels get added, it would be perfect imo.
Wonderful story! 5/5
The game is great! I typically don’t like simple games or musical games but this one was amazing. I only wish it was longer or that the character gets more adventures.
Loved the game 💜 5/5
Only this I hate thought is that it is short I love the music and the story.
Nishan Shaman 5/5
Interesting but why is end keep make more sesson!
Amazing and artistic masterpiece of culture 5/5
I learned so much about Northern Chinese culture that I never would have known about and I learned in an amazing artistic and musical way, this really blew me away in terms of the art style and music. The game is rather short but as a completionist I’ll definitely replay stages to finish the compendium so I can learn even more about this fascinating culture. Clearly lots of passion and amazing design went into this game and it couldn’t be any other way.
A level bug 2/5
The game is great. Love the history and the story of the game. It’s a very unique rhythm game and it reminds me a lot of patapon. My issue is that in the level where Nishan has only minimal health left, there’s a bug. I’ll tap the screen at the right time but it won’t be counted. Instead it just takes her life this leaving me unable to continue on.
BEST MUSICAL GAME EVER 5/5
I have never played a game that is so awesome! I love the stories they shows and how they read it to you in Chinese. Their song is wonderful, it is like from another time!
Awesome game!! 5/5
By dumb vs idiot
A great rythym game with unique songs to play to. Although it was short, I enjoyed the story and the gameplay, as well as the bits of information from the compendium regarding the characters and objects encountered.
A treasure. Lovingly crafted, beautifully illustrated and an ethereally haunting soundtrack. Only complaint is that there’s not nearly enough of it. Please make more!
Simply great 5/5
Every review has basically summed up everything. Download this and play it..its just amazing
Awesome game if u read this please be proud of the game
By Sliver Cloud
Love the game reminds me of taiko drumming. Please add more a lot more cause it was way way too short of game play. And it was really easy. But the game looks beautiful. Love it. We want more now! I’ll add the 5th star when we get more levels or a non stop mode or something. Awesome make one where it’s like the arcade dummer game taiko with music from Asia and keep it to two finger gameplay and you’ll have a huge hit on your hands. Been waiting for years and years for something like this. Keep it up and keep it updated. Thank for making my month all about this game. I’m telling everyone to download it today!
Amsolutely incredible 5/5
I would much prefer if there were more levels to this game. The graphics were amazing and story telling was engaging. Not once have I written a review for a game on this magnitude and I am very pleased with what this game had had to offer. I loved how the music from the drum melded with the background music. All in all an engaging experience.
Simple but beautiful game 5/5
By Chachi Tchotchke
This is a beautiful game with gorgeous music and awesome story. I love that it’s based around the legend and the compendium has additional information for everything shown in the game. The visuals are also really amazing and I love the cut out style! I would love a sequel or the soundtrack! (And pay for both!)
Fantastic game 5/5
By Paco mctaco
This game, though it was short, was absolutely incredible. My only problem is that the hidden ending that is supposed to trigger after getting an excellent rating in all levels, does not seem to work
Great short game. 5/5
By Super 2984
Beautiful game design. I appreciated that it told a good story and didn’t drag on. The game doesn’t strive to be played for hours on end. Thank you for your art!
These grad students managed to tell such a vivid and dynamic story with only five levels, simple gameplay and no ads.
If there’s anyway to support them to develop apps of like quality, I’ll gladly help!
