Lord of the dance

Format: PS Vita
Genre: Music/ Rhythm
It's not often that you see the real-time strategy genre infused with rhythm elements.
Indeed, the two appear to clash, as strategy games usually rely on tactics coupled with swiftness - and you can't exactly be swift if a beat is stomping on your groove.
And yet Orgarhythm pulls it off - to an extent. There's some pretty compelling stuff in here, and with a bit of a clean-up it could be essential handheld gaming.
Beat (them to death)
Orgarhythm takes you onto a battlefield, filled with mystical enemies who want to kill you, the God of Light.
However, you have a number of minions who you can order around to attack the incoming baddies. Ordering your guys around involves tapping commands to the beat of the music.
It's messy in places, but Orgarhythm is a compelling mixture of strategy and rhythm that you won't see anywhere else
