It's a good game.

Developed by Matthew Taranto, creator of the Smash Bros. webcomic Brawl in the Family, Tadpole Treble is a game in which you take the role of Baton, a tadpole who needs to avoid notes and other obstacles to find her way back home. The levels consist mainly of sheet music; the very same music playing in the background. Some levels have lyrics, most don't.

Matthew's art style is preserved perfectly in this game, and his singing voice is as good as ever. It has that same charm BitF had, and still would have had if it was never about Kirby in the first place.

Speaking of Kirby, it has a very Kirby-like approach to its game design: plenty easy to get through the story mode, managing to have its exciting moments despite that, but quite surprisingly difficult to 100% the game. I still haven't managed to collect all 100 bubbles in any given level.

It's 10 dollars on both Steam and the Wii U eShop, and it's worth every penny.

But that's enough trying to sell you on the game, especially if you have it already. What're your thoughts on it?
