EDIT: Thanks for 5th...again

Hi everyone! Long time since I submitted anything.

This is a "remake" if you will of my previous submission, The Pick of Destiny. After I got numerous reviews on that one requesting Tenacious D songs, I went ahead and made it. It was no easy thing though. I used 7 FULL Tenacious D songs. That means that the 5 minute songs are not cut to be shorter. That explains the file size.

Anyways here is a small lsit of the changes and upgrades from the last one:

- New engine
- You now hold down a key when the beat asks it.
- double beats
- Faster arrows (which means it's harder)
- Autosave function, so now if you unlock the secrets, you don't have to play all over again to get them.
- in-game replay button
- Secrets have been drastically improoved. I'm sure you guys will like them
- 1 new secret pick!

It took me about a month to make this, I have no idea why it took that long. I think it's much superior to it's predecessor. Well, that's about it. Enjoy the game, friends!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

nice nice

owaes loved the music used but i agree its too long and like the previous poster said, some wasnt on par. but the las pick wuz on par tho.

i find all the songs too ez ): u nid to make some harder ones esp with nice songs lidat. lol. maybe u cud pt some songs with faster beat so there wil b more beats. however, theres smth wrong with the beats tt are continuous! its too sensitive! Like when i jus press the keys as usual, i could remove 3 of it at one go with a "too early comment" ))):

lookin forward to a third remake XD more songs :D (nice one with the lyrics part, lurv tt)

LilDwarf responds:

I had to use the entire songs because they get good at the end. I don't thinkn I'll make another one, I'm tired of making rythm games haha


Rated 4 / 5 stars

good game

its a good game but not a winner for the rock out comp espescially after the deadline.the thing that ticked me off was that the songs were so damn long and that the synching with the song wanst on par.but i still beat the game the only song i dindt finish was the lock pick on hard...good job

LilDwarf responds:

Hahahahahahahahhahahaha XD you think this is for the rock out conetst?? That thing was over like 4 months ago. I just used the preloader, and fyi I did win some money for the original >:)

Very, very nice.

I played the first version, and to be honest I was not impressed, but this completely fixed all the problems I had with the original, and even uses actual Tenacious D songs. Still not THE best rhythm on Newgrounds, but very good.

LilDwarf responds:

That's good to hear. I agree with you. Thanks for the review.

slight problem

Once i get to medium level songs, even when i hit the right arrow keys, at the right time, it says i missed. the arrow keys flash slightly when u hit the button, and they don't when this happens. Other that that, not bad. It still is irritating though. I would hit the right keys, yet i get a miss for it. And please don't say that maybe I just suck at this and I'm hitting the wrong keys. my friend is with me and tried it out too, thinking it was cause i sucked. truth is, im really good at these kinds of games. If you can fix this slight error, it would be less of a hassle.

LilDwarf responds:

Maybe you just suck at it, lol j/k I'm not sure I can help you because you're the only one so far with this problem...and quite frankly I don't understand your problem :P Could be a lot of things...your version of Flash Player, your processor, whatever. But there's nothing I can do :( Try playing it on another computer maybe that works :)

You sir, rock.

I loved this game, but I did notice one flaw. Lock Hard mode doesn't work. Otherwise, you have made this gamer rock out until his fingers locked out. ^_^

LilDwarf responds:

Try it now, I just fixed it.
