It has been well over a year since I got the chance to review Aaero, the rhythmic on-rails shooter. I praised for its flashy visuals and killer soundtrack then, and those things resonate with me still, as I went back not too long ago to check it out on my newer TV as a visual point of reference. Excitingly, the team at Mad fellows is still supporting their title with fresh batches of DLC. The most recent release is a three track pack from Monstercat. If you are not familiar with Monstercat, they are a popular EDM music label, and if you have played Rocket League in the last year you are almost certainly familiar with some of their many great hits featured in that title too. This pack costs roughly $5, and for that, fans and newcomers alike of either Aaero or Monstercat are both in for a short but sweet treat.
This pack features these three songs:
Muzzy - Outsiders (ft. Charlotte Haining)
Feint - We Won't be Alone (ft. Laura Brehm)
Protostar - Echoes of the Past
All three are fun in their own ways, with each seeming to be more difficult and engaging than the last. Outsiders is a good song to kick off the set, especially for returning players like me that may be rusty. The track is fun and varied, with slow sections that quickly ramp up. Some flashy obstacles make for a sight to see, as do the outdoor portions of the track that take you high in to a city full of sky scrapers.
We Won’t be Alone is my favorite song AND track of the set, with both just being really fun. The ribbon portions of the track are super fun and intuitive, making the player and the track feel really in tune. This track too showcases a cool, flashy obstacle, almost reminiscent of a deadly Tetris wall.
Protostar does not let the fun fizzle out. This is the only track of the set to not feature vocals, but it keeps the fun coming with some bumping bass and some cool, new enemies. The song fits the tracks design excellently, pairing will with the inclusion of stronger enemies to make things feel more desolate.
Fans of either Aaero or Monstercat will find this an easy purchase. Have not played Aaero? Check out the base review above. As for my final thoughts, this pack is totally worth the investment, even if you only play them a handful of times. Aaero is an awesome game and it is great to see it still being supported, with the team at Mad Fellows being one of the most active and genuine dev accounts you can follow on Twitter (Check them out!)
