Description: Choose one of three music genres or upload your favourite track. Shoot at the notes coming out of the loudspeakers to score points. When you shoot notes on the same colour one after the other you will score extra combo points. Aim at violin keys and various instruments to score even more points! If you really want to score high, here is a tip – don’t miss!

Imagine you are the best music producer in the world. You are sitting in your record studio, working on a new album for your favourite band. As always, you want to get the perfect sound. You play the song once, twice, three times and…That’s it – you’ve had enough of this! You pull out two fully loaded guns and start shooting away at all the notes coming at you from all the loudspeakers around you!!!

Review: Having played quite a few songs with Guns and Notes I feel the game has some good potential. But at the moment it is missing the target (this is not a pun). The main idea is a Beat Saber style of game in which you shot the notes in time to the beat of the music. But sadly the appearing musical notes and indeed your shots and not in time with the music-making the gameplay kind of pointless. This is what Beat Saber has song mapping. Its a good idea it really is, but it needs a lot more work before I can recommend it. A good idea that isn’t quite there.
