UPDATE: A couple people have been asking for the game for their site - if anyone else wants it, please simply send me a PM and i'll send you a thumbnail of the size that you need, plus the .SWF.



Hi Newgrounds!

This is my third game (I think - who's keeping track anyways...). I'd have to say this is my best one yet.

This rhythm game has been helped IMMENSELY by the newgrounds community.

I actually remember posting in the audio forum a couple months back asking if anyone could help me out by letting me use their songs, and I got a lot of helpful, positive replies - so thanks NG, and a big thank you to all the music artists that allowed me to use their songs (check out the list to your left)!

Thank you to - the site's owner is very good at graphics, and helped me with the game's reskin (the game originally looked really bad!).

This is also my first self-sponsored game (my last one got sponsored by arcade reign), in order to boost the launch of my new flash game portal (wish me luck!) - http://www.littlemonsterg

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term 'sponsoring', it means a company pays you to put their branding/logos in your game, in order to gain publicity and traffic to their website.

So I hope you enjoy the game - I'll read every comment, so please leave one :)


Edit: Newgrounds is only letting me credit up to eleven songs, so I've just credited 1 song per artist to be fair (there's nine artists, but over twenty songs). The full list of used songs can be found in-game (click on 'credits'). Thanks again music artists!


Edit: Haha, sorry guys! I accidentally uploaded a version without a preloader! I hope that didn't annoy you too much with a file that big :)

All fixed now though!




Rated 1 / 5 stars

Not good

The buttons are waay off the beat and the quality is basically shit. I like the songs though. I totally agree with Btastic and Kingdaro. Im gonna give you 2 stars though because i like some of the songs.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I agree with Btastic.

I'm also a huge fan of rhythm games, and I know what makes 'em good. The rhythm of the notes were really awkwardly placed, and rarely ever went with the beat. Some songs it didn't really recognize. Now, I know I'm repeating Btastic, but these are things that needed fixed. The GUI was perfectly fine with me, it's just that I like hitting my arrows to a beat, not some random bullcrap placed notes. An in-game key editor would be a good idea. I don't know why Btastic's review was thumbs-downed, I found it helpful so this could be made into what a rhythm game should really be. It might as well be considered a mashing game in it's current state.

I'm a massive fan of rhythm games, so I know what makes a good one and what makes one fail.
For starters, the timing of the key presses only vaguely related to the actual song, and the same went for the note placement as well. If you don't get these right, then it's not a rhythm game, it's a very long QTE.
Secondly, I couldn't see what was going on half the time. My screen was flooded with 'PERFECT' and 'x6!!' and, inevitably 'MULTIPLIER LOST'. The lighting near the note bar didn't help either, especially seeing as it's the same colour as the notes i'm supposed to hit.
Lastly, the huds were too far away from the action to actually be any use, and they're too like the background. The multiplier indicator was ok, but the rest I couldn't see without failing the song.
I kind of like this game, it's better than some of the crap you get on newgrounds, and the ability to upload some of your songs was very good, even if it didn't recognize some of my music. but it's not much new, and you could have done so much more with it.
3/5 6/10
