    Rock Out A contest to make the best rhythm game!

Author Comments

Choose the move your fighter performs by playing the corresponding note pattern in this new twist on old fighting games with lots of frame-by-frame hand drawn action!

We plan to add more characters, moves, environments, and music if you like it, so leave your feedback! We reccomend you play with a friend, but the computer can hold his own too!

We busted our behinds to complete this engine in time for the Rockout contest so have fun!



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Original and fun

But not so a rythm game imo because it was hitting buttons when a marker indicated it, not really following music. Less options for attacks could be less confusing.

BoMToons responds:

it's rhythm in the purest sense because you're hitting those notes to the BEAT of the bg music. YOU are the one playing the melody with your key presses.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Pretty addictive

I like it, very original! Hope you come out with more stuff though, that's the onlything it's lacking :(

BoMToons responds:

Agreed. We've got more stuff already in the works.

I can't give this game a fair vote, considering the fact that i can't play. When I hit the keys nothing happens, I'm in sync and whatnot and i'm hitting the right ones but still nothing.... Help?

Hmm, haven't heard of that one...can you PM me with more details?
1. What browser you're using
2. Whether the note bars are showing up on the left and right of the arena
3. Whether the red playhead is being attached to the note side bars when you press the buttons
4. Were you playing 1player or 2player
5. Which character(s) were you using
6. Were you pressing z,x,c, and/or i,o,p?
7. Mac or PC?

Like they said not really a ROCK OUT game but I liked it.. ALOT! Really fun to play, although my time frame I hope to get into it more but this review is based on what I've played..

Anymore characters than the first 2? Also the next one you make perhaps use the Arrow keys.. using the letters is a bit hard and disorienting, also instead of one person attacks and other person defends kind of thing allow you to attack or defend at all time, like you had it maybe 3 skills will be attacks other 2 will be Defend or Counter skills.

Hope to see me.

BoMToons responds:

I fully consider it in line with the "Rockout" guidelines. Just because it's not a DDR or GH clone doesn't mean it doesn't qualify as a rhythm game.

This is not a music game.
This is a timing game.
Though interesting, and apparent that a lot of time went into the mechanics, IT IS BORING.
I wish you luck later.

BoMToons responds:

We actually went through painstaking effort to get the notes synched to the'll notice that it matches up EVERY round of moves...not an easy task considering there are varying lengths of animations between each round of move entering. Given, it's not your typical "play the notes of different songs" game, but originality and innovation was the point of this contest.

P.S. Modesto means business, come on everybody, Modesto means business for you and me-eee....Mo-Des-To-Means-Biz-Ness!
