Music does a great many things. It can hype you up for a boss battle, or calm you down and think. Loner's game is very simple. You navigate your way past openings, rotating your plane and flying up or down as needed. What makes Loner great, however, is the music that you hear as you play through it. It's soft, filled with chimes, violins and piano tracks. Rather than calling it calm, the music invokes a sense of nostalgia instead. Obstacles come in the form of walls, moving walls, and moving boxes. As you clear each obstacle course, you are rewarded with a story page. 

The story appears to tell the romance of a couple, and the tragedy that happens to them due to a war.

The game is enjoyable, but sometimes, you will encounter two hard obstacles close to each other, and it is difficult to rotate your plane fast enough to go through them. This is an odd choice, as players usually don't think fast when they are calm, and is a big drawback in the game. Nevertheless, if you are looking for a calming experience, Loner will do just that.
