SQXO: Gal Metal does try to open up the idea of musical expression but just fails to keep in beat. Control issues mean it can be very difficult to hit the rhythms and being even a tiny bit out means your beat won’t register. It can become frustrating until you find your groove. All the stuff in between is charming if not a little repetitive. For a game that prides itself on musical expression, it really has to sort its controls so that they flow freely and reward the player for using creative licence. Charming story, gameplay needs a tune-up.
