    Rock Out A contest to make the best rhythm game!

Author Comments

Note: This game is graphics-intensive. To reduce lag, you may wish to CLOSE ALL other browser TABS and WINDOWS, including this one. Sorry about any inconvenience...

Requires Flash Player 9. If you don't already have it.

Welcome to |>!, a rhythm game of great explosiveness. Some notes clarifying the game:
-The ground is drawn in time to the music, using AS3's new computeSpectrum() function.
- You cannot move your crosshair left and right because that would defeat the purpose of being synced to music.
- Remember, you need to HOLD DOWN the spacebar when a long enemy appears!
- I just noticed that Tatsu-Takahashi's track "In Your Face!" is in just about EVERY Rock Out submission on NG. Hopefully you won't mind it being in this one too.

This is the first game I have made using AS3 and Flash CS3. I spent alot of time on it, so please rate fairly. Hope you enjoy it!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Good Game...

It is a very good game, well scripted, nice music, nice graphics...
Small flaws, but what game is perfect.

-- One thing: not sure if this is the game itself (or newgrounds new style?, or the "Rock-Out" preloader?)... but sometimes when you open it again you will not be taken to the menu, it will have 0% on the progress bar, and you seem to be able to sit there forever.

Thanks for the review! :P It's probably an actionscript 3 bug - I had to convert the Rock Out preloader to AS3, and I wouldn't be surprised if I made some error along the way.

This would be a good game, but it really irks me how with the long bomb, the first bomb doesn't explode when you hold space and still comes to you (which really irks me)


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Not bad, but...

This is a pretty good game. The only problem I have with this game is when you hit a bomb, sometimes the next one is too close to you to target, thus you get hit again no matter what. Other then that, it's a pretty cool and fun game!


Rated 2 / 5 stars

no doubt the...

worst rhythm game ever!!

the thing that annoyed me the most was when your gun over heated (which is impossible to avoid even if you play the song perfectly) the horribly chosen music is interupted by even worse music!!!
and even if that wasn't a problem the gameplay was horrible anyway!

Septenary responds:


Thanks for your feedback.

the menus are mesed up

the preloader, title screen, and instruction pages just kept flashing back over and over agian. is anybody else getting this?!

Septenary responds:

Ah! Really sorry about that - I can't imagine why its happening. Did you get any error messages? Are you running Windows? Do you have flash player 9 installed?

Thanks for informing me of the problem.
