Symphonic Strife is a 2-D action platformer by Zach Baharov in which you control a classical composer creating his latest symphony. Imagine a ninja Beethoven doing parkour and dispatching scores of enemies in tempo to the music he is inventing. You have a set of free-running moves and musical attacks at your disposal. Each level features a unique composer and is set to a piece of music of his or her creation. You must climb, jump, slide, vault, roll, and fight your way through a dark environment full of obstacles and Insecurity Guards. You’re guided around the darkness only by Muses - glowing fairy-like creatures.
