I personally see the dark purple color scheme to be very appealing to me, if it was made into a 3.95 theme I'd get it in a heartbeat (Of course the chances of that are next to none, so not worth digging into).
Otherwise the charts look very DDR standard, nothing I find too fun or worth playing. At least some of the songs sound pretty interesting. And I have to give them credit for those custom made CD titles.
Partially constructive. I don't know which charts are being discussed in question or which difficulties. It's hard to make improvements without details.

What is wrong with the noteskins? This is not constructive.

A number of features were developed for Pulsen originally, and then brought back to StepMania. Furthermore, a number of features were requested for Pulsen that were developed in StepMania first. Pulsen did not take everything. For that matter, they actually gave.
What difference does it make who gave what? You just said right there that SM can do a lot of what Pulsen does; how is that going to make people buy this exactly?

I can see this game being good for casual players who are unaware of Stepmania as a whole (or even just unaware of sites like r21freak) but this game is not going to get a very good reaction on sites dedicated to sharing high-quality Stepmania charts like this one
I'm lumping the above two together, for they both equal a constructive comment. You guys are right in that perhaps trying to reach out to r21freak was not the best idea.

Maybe if you made it an iPhone game and programmed it to autogen steps for songs from your libraru, it'd sell, but that's the only way I see it succeeding in the least. As long as DDR, ITG, PIU, SM5, FFR and Dance Central exist, there is no market for what you're trying to sell.
This is constructive, for it gives a detail and idea. Unfortunately, I do not see how feasible it is to autogen steps completely from scratch.
