Silence is bad. Or, that's what Mevo would have you believe. Before getting into the nuts and bolts of presentation, it's important to understand the underlying mechanics. Screenshots would lead you to believe Mevo is a typical run-n-jump platformer, but it has more in common with DDR or Guitar Hero. As Mevo navigates levels, he hits arrows that you need to match; keep the rhythm going and Mevo keeps moving.
That said, music is incredibly important to the underlying mechanics. There's a basic background tune playing throughout the level, but this acts as a metronome for the gameplay elements. The beats don't merge perfectly with the background music, however, so you're left to guess how the techno-beats should sound. Still, the better you do, the better the music sounds - so if the soundtrack sucks, it's your fault.
Mevo's visuals are just as refreshing as its gameplay. It's great to play as a character that isn't bald, angst-ridden or encased in power armor. Mevo is a fun character to watch as he jumps around the screen and it gets better the deeper you get in the game. As you go through the game, Mevo can learn new dance styles and earn costumes that you can mix-and-match to create your own character. Levels are just as much fun and manage give you a lot to look at without becoming distracting.
