The game is now priced at $19.99 on Steam and on the PlayStation Store.

A price hasn't been given yet, but it shouldn't be that bad, going for about the same price as other versions. Set to thumping bass beats, you've got to avoid obstacles, employ catlike reflexes, and learn patterns to defeat bosses.
