This is the follow-up to the original Metal Freaks game, posted on Newgrounds back in July 2004. The original design for this sequel was started soon after because of all the positive feedback I received, and now the game is finally complete.

The gameplay is heavily inspired by Beatmania IIDX, pressing keys in time with the song that's playing. Konami deserves all the credit for the concept, this is simply a fan dedication.

Features: 9 songs, 25 patterns, profile saving/loading, XP based unlock system, ranking courses, and much more.

UNLOCK ALL CODE: Go to the options menu, change your scoretag to " 8otb ". You will be level 99 and have all of the unlocks.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

it's fine the way it is

i loved it, am currently level 34 in exp. and own all hard level songs and working on experts, just reset the controls to make the first 4 keyts be 1-4, then make the last one the enter button and play it like frets on fire....they need like a highscores thing for this....

Really good, but some noticable flaws

It would be nice if the columns were different colors, when there are a lot of notes coming at once the grays start to blend together and get confusing. Also the system of failing a song seems flawed. You could hit the first 99% of the notes in a song perfectly but if you miss the last 6 notes you would still fail... that doesn't seem right. Likewise you could skip the first half of a song but if you do well on the second half you can still pass. Also many of the chords are misaligned. And its annoying for experienced rhythm gamers to have to play through a few easy songs to unlock the higher difficulties. Other than that this game has a good song selection and great gameplay.
