Misleading, but fun and not without it's flaws.

It's rather unfair that you did not mention that this was not the full version of the game. (To anybody else reading this review: You can buy it on steam or on the iPhone or whatever. ) I was pretty confused when I unlocked creation mode, because it said that I needed to beat the game to unlock it, then I locked at the reviews, and people could not figure out how to get to the 4th room, so I looked it up and saw the full version needs to be paid for. It's very dissapointing when it isn't mentioned on from the get-go that this is a demo. It throws everybody for a loop and it takes away from the experience.
About the game, it was very well done. It seemed a bit tedious at points. Not all the hiding places were obvious. Even though a spot would sparkle after a while, I should not have to wait for the game to point it out to me. There's a fine line between well-hidden and impossible to notice. Some of the hiding places should be a little more obvious, but without taking away any challenge. On the puzzle side of the game, it was kind of annoying having to solve so many puzzles at once to unlock the next room. There wasn't anything to break up the puzzles, because at one moment, I'm finding all the pieces, then the next, I have all these long puzzles to solve. The puzzles themselves were clever and entertaining. I never would have though to make the music a puzzle itself in that sort of fashion, and it was fun to do. Just not when I have to solve 3 or 4 without a break.
Overall, it's a cute little game that's fun to play. Just make sure people know it's a demo next time.

Wonderful game, even if it is a "demo".

I think I've figured out the problems a lot of people seem to be having with this game. You see, the reason the game is "unfinished" is because it is a cut-down, free version of a $6 Android game (I believe.) A little research has brought me to some videos of the "full game" in action. There are several more songs, and the two rooms that seem to be missing from this version really do exist.

But anyway, I should review this game for what it is. It is indeed an excellent game. Nearly every song was very-nicely remixed and I enjoyed the rock-styled mixes as much as the classical ones. The fact that you combined music and puzzles was a very unique concept. My one gripe about the game is the point-and-click aspects of it. The graphics were stunning, don't get me wrong, and I would guess they were made from actual photos of somebody's house. It's just that, like most static-image point-and-click games, it turns into a pixel hunt after awhile. A few of the outlines are really difficult to spot and some I just got lucky with by clicking around. I loved the sound production, though, and it was sort of fun interacting with the different objects in each room. The flavor text for some objects and for all the songs was interesting to read and I learned some things I didn't know, which is always nice.

Overall, it's a great game, even if it is short and actually a cut-down version. The music remixes were great and were very inventive. The design was fantastic, with each song having its own style to the blocks as well as the instrumentation. Getting to hear each separate part of the song was also neat and gives some insight into how those pieces were composed.

I give this game a nine for a couple reasons. First, it was confusing having two extra spaces on the map for rooms that were there, but taken out. Another reason I couldn't give a ten is because of one or two of the songs (Yankee Doodle for example) which sounded a bit off. Lastly, the point-and-click segments, though somewhat enjoyable, ended up becoming clickfests after a bit. Despite Musaic Box's flaws, it is still an excellent game that I would recommend to anyone interested in pre 20th-century music. And if you want to see the other two rooms and a few more songs, search up some videos or, heck, why not go buy the game if you have a phone that can play it? It's only $6.

Pretty good concept.

The only thing I have to say against it is the problem other users have had - I must test it, but I think the problem comes from when you transition to the next room without finding all the pieces in the last room.

Although I also found the fix on how to be able to restart the game: right click, go to the storage options, set it to 0, apply. Restart the game and your savegame will be erased.

Great but...

Loved it,but I have the same problem as some people. I can't access room 4, although I've collected andsolve every piece. That's sad.
