Cosmic DJ review: The best worst acid trip of your gaming life

Hayden Dingman | Dec. 16, 2014
Call Cosmic DJ a game, call it a toy, here's what it is in objective terms: A 32-beat musical step sequencer programmed to play various synthesizer sounds across four different pitches at a time.

After you're done with each level you even get a chance to title your jam, draw some amazing album art, and export the whole thing so you can listen to it later. Voila — you're now the musician you always wanted to be before you settled for that boring office job.

Bottom line

Cosmic DJ 's neither long nor complex, but it succeeds at exactly what it sets out to do: making the act of creating music simple and fun. Who knows? Maybe you play Cosmic DJ, get a feel for beats and composition, pick up a real instrument because your interest's been piqued, and become a musician for life. I'm not saying that's going to happen, but it could.

If not, well at least you got to watch a corgi blast into space.
