Hello everyone! Here's a massive submission for you!!! I worked very long and hard on this with a bunch of people! I really hope you enjoy Punk-o-matic 2! Create songs, share them, make a band, do concerts & more! Connect with other people on here and on the official website.

LAG: If you're having lag problems, lower the quality in the options, reduce the animation level and disable the concert lights. You can also download the game and that should help a lot.

Make sure you check out the Tips in-game and on the Official Website to help you make some awesome songs.

Punk-o-matic Pro is in development. For more information, check out this link (remove the spaces):

Sorry evil dog.

I had to give you a 1/5 for many reasons.

1. Controls, i couldent tell where the little dot was going, if it was going up, down, or any of the slants.

2. Lag, You made the game so complicated, it was lagging bad, i tried to play the game, but the lag stopped me from hitting the notes on time.

3. Not simplistic. We loved punk o matic 1 because it was simple, you could go in, pick the riffs, and your good! here, we have to change our Characters, Write tons of songs, perform them (on a crappy game engine might i add).

Please fix these problems, make a new "song play" engine, As much as i know you hate guitar hero, it seems to be an effective system, fix the lag, (do we need tons of amps in the back with a song playing? and maybe cut down a feature or two.

You obviously put a lot of effort into this.

Punk-O-Matic was probably one of the first games I played on Newgrounds. At the time, it was a fun toy I could mess around in while I was bored. It didn't really stick with me though... it felt sort of limited.

From playing certain other games and visiting forums over the last few years, I noticed it had a somewhat large following. I could understand that, since I had some fun with it, but I never really joined in.

Now the sequel is out, and I was hoping to see improvements to the editor. Well, it has improvements, but not quite how I hoped. What I would've liked is a note by note pattern editor, rather than tons of prerecorded riffs and patterns. (Would that help with file size? I'd think it would, since there wouldn't be as many audio files.) I feel very creative, and I feel let down when I can't make a riff or pattern (I'm going to shorten this to "plxqr". Because I can.) the way it is in my head. I sifted through the tons of plxqr and never found anything like what I was looking for. I half created something, half threw something down to play a concert with something other than covers. Mixing them together sort of works, but it's not good enough for me.

I noticed the plxqr didn't always transition smoothly from one to the other, which is a bit irritating to listen to...

Actually being able to play your songs in a career mode is a fantastic addition. The qweasd hexagon was to be different from other games, right? :P It's not a bad idea, it's been used successfully before, but there are reasons why so many music games over the last thirteen years or so have had vertical scrolling, one button per column: It's much easier to read, shows more of the chart, makes simultaneous notes easier to see, and is familiar to most people. Many people may be annoyed with the setup since it's hard to read by default.

Being able to play different instruments in a Flash music game at different difficulties is new to me, so points for that.

The quality of the game's music seemed to vary... a lot. I could play a song I absolutely hate immediately following a song I like. Song previews would be a good addition to the game. Would it be possible to load user songs into the game from an online database, or is manually loading code going to be the only way?

I like all the little things the people say. It makes the characters seem more like people than "LOL bein a drummre ish fun... hello i is a durmmer... my durms expansive..."

While writing this, my opinion of the game has changed a few times. I've gone from being annoyed with everything, to enjoying it, to boredom, and back through all over again. I'd probably give this game a different score for every ten minutes I spend playing it, so I'll just stick with 7. :P It might be fun to come back now and again, but I'm not the biggest fan, though a lot of people seem like they could be. Good for them.


- The lack of descriptions on the achievements list is driving me nuts.
- Nice graphics. I like how the characters actually look like they're playing the music.
- I sometimes missed notes when I hit them perfectly. Meh, that seems to happen with most Flash music games.
- Oddly enough, the lag seemed worse after turning down the quality and animation. Looks like I won't get the 100 combo achievement any time soon...

[Ack, I can't think clearly anymore. Oh well.]

I guess....

I guess its ok, either im really stupid or i have no time to figure out how to use all the complicated buttons and tabs and other small things that us gamers have no time to figure out... its not like the first one where it was all simple.

Middle man

Its an amazing sequel. But I agree. there is a LOT of information compared to the second one. You should have a mode where you CAN just hit random and tweak from there. People say it only takes 10 minutes to figure out how to play. For a flash game thats a LONG time. I cant think of ANY flash game that takes that long nor should. But like I said. Its still really good.
