Ill be straightforward with this review, I found it lacking originality considering all of the mechanics were obviously from Osu! and the other game others have mentioned.(-1 star) The other problem i had was the fact that even though the mechanics were the same from other games and not done well, like others mentioned the fact that it was very hard to determine when to click for multiple notes because the rings became joined. Now the remaining stars I gave you were for the effort that you put into since you made decently fun tracks(1star), the choice of songs(1star), and the backgrounds which were done really well(1star). Tbh I dont see this flash game getting anywhere since well established games like osu! (which is also free to play) has already expanded to tablets like the ipad and continually increasing their already popular system but im sure it was a good experience to make this and good practice. The only thing from this game you made that could be better than the other games were those very well done animated backgrounds. I personally liked how you added the shooter game background to the first main song of the game. That was pretty much the only true originality i saw from what you made. I hope you continue your endeavor to make games and have fun doing it but please if you are gonna take the mechanics of other games please do your best to make it just as good or even better because if the mechanics are not done correctly overall the game ends up lacking and disappoints the gamer (original idea or not).

What's an Osu! also thanks for the review
While the game itself isn't too original, the gameplay was still nice.
Unfortunately, major problems arised that caused me to be unable to play the game in an enjoyable manner.
For one, there is an incredible amount of lag at some points of the song, like when I have to multiple clicks at the exact same spot. When I do this, the game seems to have a tough time registering that I'm clicking it multiple times, and causes me to click more than I actually do. Either that, or the game can't handle the clicking, causing the game to lag behind the song, causing the entire song to go off-sync.
Another problem that arised for me is that occasionally while I'm playing, there would be parts where I would do the hold button, but when I tried to release correctly, it wouldn't register properly that I had already released the button and the game acted as if I kept on holding down the mouse button. This was VERY evident during the tutorial, as I had to do the "hold button" section of the tutorial at LEAST 20 to 30 times.
I feel like this problem could have potentially been avoided if a graphics option was available, and maybe my computer was unable to handle the game at its current graphics setting, but since no option to change the game's graphics exists, I couldn't proceed to do that.
At that point, I was only able to play through about 5 songs before I gave up simply because I was constantly missing over and over again on things that were incredibly easy to do.
Sorry to hear you couldn't enjoy the game fully
I think this game is really cool, especially the music of course. xKore is an artist I have recently come to like after hearing a bunch of his songs, so this game, where there are a lot of xKore songs made me really happy, but not just that. The visuals to go with the songs are also very good, and in most cases, gripping. I just wish that the game itself wasn't so intense so I could look more at the backgrounds, but that's the point of the game I guess. Maybe there should be a casual mode or something so you can just listen to the music and enjoy the epic visuals. But as a game, Beat Universe is amazing, and I can't wait to see more from you in the future!
Thanks for the review! xKore is really awesome
The expert badge is too easily attainable. It should be about getting a certain score on a difficult song.
Great game! Can't really play it cuz im with a laptop, but i like some of the tracks in it. Now, i would have never guessed this was an Osu!-like game xD. Good job!
