A top-down shooter game which uses music to generate levels.

Absolutely fantastic! HOWEVER progress is not auto-saved! Who the fuck makes a game where you can abandon everything you've played just by pressing a button too many times?!

I'm not sure how to describe this game. It's an oldschool oldschool point-and-click game.

I think I would have liked this back in the day, but these days I find a bunch of the mechanics and gameplay too frustrating to deal with.

NMS requires a "new SSE". Their listed "i3" requirement doesn't make any sense for non-intel users and the concept of older CPUs being not just slow but entirely unsupported is new to almost everyone.

CPU-Z does mention instruction sets, and does mention SSE, but it might not be specific enough.

I didn't get very far, and I hear that this doesn't work on Windows 10.
