Thanks to Spin Rhythm XD I have ‘midi DJ controller’ and several different DJ related websites in my Google history. The game from developer Super Spin Digital, who are based in Melbourne Australia, just released in early access on Steam and after spending some time figuratively spinning the disc on this new rhythm game I can safely say it’s one fans’ of the genre will want to rotate into regular play.
To get the biggest question out of the way: I have been playing Spin Rhythm XD with an Xbox One controller and it plays well like that. I tried using a mouse but didn’t enjoy that experience at all. I don’t feel like you need a DJ controller to enjoy the game at all, although I’m sure that is the ultimate way to play the game.
What makes Spin Rhythm XD stand out from other music rhythm games is its flowing gameplay mechanics that aren’t heavily based in constant button tapping. It still requires your undivided attention though and will draw you into the screen and music as you’re quickly lost to the constant flow of playing one song after another.
Let’s break down how it works. Start by checking out the gameplay video below.
