    Deemo is a mix between a story based game and the mechanics of music games like Rock Band. The story develops through music playing and shows the life of a solitary man who meets a little girl from another land. The way to make her return is by growing a magic tree that grows with piano music.

    "I really love this game because it's not just your ordinary rhythm game. It has a story that tells a touching tale of lovers and the piano music that plays is very beautiful. This is not just a past time because it gets you really involved."

    "I especially love the art of this game! The characters are drawn beautifully and I like its interesting concept about bringing back human memories through the power of music. As a music lover myself I do believe that music is a language of its own and therefore connects us all!"

Science has shown that musical training can change the brain’s structure and functions. It can also improve one’s long-term memory that leads to better brain development. According to a research from University of Montreal study, musicians are prone to becoming more mentally alert compared to non-musicians. In 1990, the term Mozart effect was popularized to be the effect music has on the brain. It was theorized that listening to Mozart’s music is responsible for making kids smarter and so parents made their babies listen to the music of Mozart believing that it would give their brains an advantage before they were even born.  Another reason to expose our young ones early to music is a brain scanning study which found that anatomical changes in musicians’ brains have something to do with the age when training began. It basically means that the earlier someone is exposed to music the more impact it creates. Given that most of us are not professional musicians, we are still very much exposed to music. In fact, we listen to music for an average of 32 hours per week. Also, unlike ordinary brain-games, activities involving music and instruments is a more complex experience because it assimilates information from different senses.

    "I was amused playing this on my daughter's phone. The graphics aren't revolutionary, but the game play is somewhat clever and original, and I dig the musical tie in. Probably more of a guilty pleasure, because it feels like it's targeted at a much younger audience. Didn't stop me from playing, though."

    "Very challenging but fun! It has me pulling my hair sometimes because some levels are very very hard that it takes me several tries before I complete them. But I'm glad that it updated and added another level."

    "I think it's cool that I get to play rhythm games using trending songs. Other games like this have songs that I'm not familiar with and it's easier to follow the beat of songs you're already familiar with. Beat fever sometimes crashes and I wish it would be fixed but it's not that serious of a problem."

    "I love games that have story lines, and this incorporates both my love for stories and music. It keeps you alert because I'm always moving my hands and trying to stay in rhythm. It really teaches you something too. I love the story line and the graphics, and it seems it keeps going, which I love, because I hate getting into the game and the story is over within an hour or so."
