Thanks for the nice review Billy Y.
quote; “Greeted with a catchy electronic soundtrack, I instantly fell in love with this addictive sequel to “One More Line” “The music is the icing on the cake, really. It definitely adds a lot to your One More Dash experience (and actually calms down your post-game frustration). Oh, and if you’re any more obsessed with this thing like me, the soundtrack’s available on SoundCloud” Billy Y. Blogger
